– We’ve all been impacted by the events of 9/11/01. Whether directly or indirectly and thus this was a small attempt to pay homage to those lost and/or impacted.
– I struggled in the middle of that workout. Maybe it was the 2977 reps I did yesterday at #TheBurbs in another tribute workout. Maybe it was just hard. Regardless, I found strength when thinking of those who fought so bravely to save others. #ourpainpalesincomparison
– Great having @Burnout from #SonsOfBallantine (South CLT) with us.
– #Tclaps to @DoubleWindsor for posting just a couple days after #BRR
– So I ran into @Soup Saturday night and he #HC’d to this workout. Hoping he gets back out in the #gloom soon.

Announcements
– F3 SR Golf tourney on 10/20
