YHC showed up to an empty parking lot and started to wonder if I would have any company. A few minutes later Ickey Shuffle pulls up. As time drew closer to 7:00, and it looked like it was going to be just the two of us, he and I were about 30 seconds away from blowing off the workout and heading to an early coffeeteria rather than do a workout in cold, wet conditions. Luckily Mighty Mite pulled up, so the workout went on as planned. Thanks for sticking with that one guys. That’s one of those that looks better on paper than when actually implementing it. All in all not a bad hour spent with a total of 242 swings completed. I think the elbow planks at the end are tougher than they originally seem. Good 2nd F out there as well, discussing our various thoughts on the college football season.
Sign up for the Joe Davis Run
YHC & Ickey Shuffle are looking to form an Olympus team for the Spring Mud Run and need two more guys, let us know if interested.
Thanks for the opportunity to lead
