Addition by Subtraction

The Shovel Flag was planted, and 10, no wait – there’s #11 Deadlift; so 11 took off following Runstopper to the COP.  #12 Tootie joined us a minute or so into COP…which ended up being the entirety of Runstopper’s 20 minutes…which was actually about 13 minutes.

Ye Olde Moleskine:
We eventually got to 13 pax at The Rock today when Lex Luthor showed up with just a few minutes to go.  Allegedly he was on his way to work, and saw the arms raising during Jack Webb (from Rt. 51) and decided to get a little pain in before some Saturday office time.  Latest LIFO in the 2+ year history of The Rock.
Good work by the pax.  As the last Saturday for Mall Cop, Runstopper & YHC as site Q’s – we decided to split the Q duties among the 3 of us.
As for The Rock going forward – it is in great hands.  We passed the SF to the very capable hands of Hopper & Gummy.  Excited to see what lies ahead for Area 51’s best AO.  Rumor has it – there may be a bit more focus on running and less focus on burpees?
The Rock turned the page to a new chapter, but the final chapter was familiar with Jack Webb, lots of burpees,& a trip to North Face.  Also – Runstopper wore his tights with no shorts, of course; and MC gave his familiar pre-workout disclaimer that he may struggle as he once again forgot his inhaler……and all was well and right in the world at The Rock.

Great Q you three! Thanks for the kind words about the site Q transition, Hops. Gummy and I will try to make you three proud, albeit we have big shoes to fill. One change for certain at The Rock going forward will be Runstopper MUST wear shorts over his running tights…’s too early for that attire, man. I would invoke a 50 burpee penalty, but we all know that would only encourage the tights, not deter.

Thanks again for the faith on the transition Hops, MC and Runstopper! It will be fun!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
