12 climbed out of the fartsack for a Beverly Hills inspired beatdown. We should have known better than to proceed as planned when one of the architects decided not to show up. At any rate, the PAX jumped in with both feet, hoping to earn their spot amongst the legends of Swamp Rabbit.

-Tclaps to Aloha who carried YHC to our first #VT, followed closely by Padre and FNG-Grilled Cheese on a Doughnut (due to time, both teams only ranĀ 3 laps on YHC’s audible, the other 4 teams ran 4 laps)
-If you like working hard and on a team, keep coming back (and bring others). No one wants to let down their partner, and no one likes to get left behind. These two simple facts create a level of effort that is difficult to attain in solo workouts
-Aloha has the Q for this week #oucho #fartsackrecommended
-Be on the lookout for a pre-blast ~Wednesday

-Prayers for Padre’s wife Lauren
-Praise for Turbo Tax’s grandfather who underwent surgery last week (successfully and safely)
-Prayers for Erector and praise that the MRI came back negative
-Prayers for those that suffer in silence

Until next time,
