-Sign up for Christmas Party

-Tclaps for first timer Birdman, T claps to Heartbreaker for bringing out a co-worker and friend.


1.  YHC is out of shape.  TR was chasing YHC down on the laps. YHC was so gassed even the thought of injured pride losing a smoke book contest to TR, couldn’t motivate YHC into a higher gear.  Need to hit up FT and DT regularly.

2.  YHC had a harder workout planned, but changed it during the COP, to accommodate. Thus everything was planned on the fly.  Hope all still got their money’s worth.  The intended workout was hill sprints with rock work with partners and a longer catch me if you can.  It will be saved for future dates.  The track helped keep everyone together.

3.  Much respect to Susudio.  the man is a beast.  usually dominating the whipper snappers out there.

4.  T claps to Sanka and partner for using the man sized boulder.

5.  YHC aplogizes for the bad cadence on the imperial walkers.  Tclaps to ALF for the constructive criticism.  Also for the late bb posting (crazy last few days and weeks!)

T claps on leading us through the strange.

Good luck with the smoke book contest. The Weber grill manual is pretty good, but a bit overrated IMO.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
