Good solid group of 23 strong showing up even with the temperature dipping below 50 degrees. I’m officially announcing the end of the longest summer on Charlotte record.

The first group running took off like gang busters. I would give credit to some of those guys, but I don’t know who they were, they were too far in front of me. #notsustainablefor45minutes.

I was worried with a big group that there wouldn’t be enough room to do pull-ups. That concern quickly vanished when I realized that I was one of only about 3 or 4 guys that were actually doing them. We don’t do burpees any more, we don’t do jumping jacks, we don’t do pullups. This is very, very, sad.

I’m listing that smaller field as 50 yards. It might be smaller, but I’m rounding up. The last two runs were supposed to be All-You-Gots, they became All-Your-Willing To Gives.

It’s amazing how quick Gloss is able to do his ab exercises. He was finished with his crunches before most of us had done more than two or three. That’s impressive.

Introducing FHG Juicy. Spacker brought him over, so that’s obviously one quick character strike against him, but he did actually seem like a pretty decent guy. No announcements other than BRR coming in 11 months. Thanks for Sprockets and Gummy for giving me the opportunity to lead.

Wow. Queen worked a lot of shade into that backblast. I blame Marge for the quick pace on the school laps – it was aggressive. It was kind of sad to see Foghorn run in all alone without his cul-de-sac bros, Sprockets and Amber. He seemed lonely. Tackling Dummy is up next week.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
