T-claps to our WD Jamboree for running 7-8 miles roundtrip from his home to post. #oldmanstrong The “Royal” reference was due to YHC’s beloved Kansas City Royals’ postseason run. The numbers of exercises in most instances corresponded to uniform #’s of some of my favorite players, present and past. That’s it and that’s all sports fans. Go Royals. Take the Crown!
