9 DaVillians started off the post holiday year the best possible way, hoisting iron and strengthening fellowship. We did the Murph!  Ran a mile around the perimeter of the school, then: 100 Goblet Squats     200 Lawnmowers   300 Halos Run another mile. Numberama, namerama, YHC took us out. NMS YHC was having great difficulty thinking of exercises last night, so texted Mudface, who responded with a barrage of possibilities.  One of those was lumberjacks, and YHC thought “200 Lumberjacks, sounds great!”  Yeah, not so much, those were quickly modified to lawnmowers.  There was a lot of mumblechatter this morning, which only…
