Animals Never Moved So Slow

Twas the beginning of a long season of swinging cold iron as 8 Pain-Seekers gathered at Olympus.  MIghty Mite said it well right before the start.  “This reminds me of the first day at Olympus”….as it was a brisk 41 degrees and reminiscent of that cold, first day.

It was a change of pace from all the gear today, and each guy gave 100%.  Shot out to Swiss Miss and Might Mite who were owning the plate pushes!  Also Might Mite might actually be an animal as he was the first to finish all the animal movements #mutantwolverine

T-Claps to Dr. Love who came out for the second time to Olympus and F3 and we hope to see you more and more.  He is already at high level of fitness and literally walked in off the street and killing it #goodfitHL

Thank you to all the men that posted with us today.  You guys are what makes being a Q so rewarding as each person embraced the suck with a smile on their face.  Enjoy the rest of the weekend and hope to see you soon.

Respectfully, The Hoff
