Young Pele (FNG) showed impressive speed and stamina in the Gloom. Being 11 years old does have its advantages.  He pretty much sauntered through the workout.  Most impressive part was that he was adept at trash talk at this young age (thanks to Bleeder for the good training).  TYA commented to Pele that he needed to get his butt down for the planks, not to follow the old guys in the triangle position.  Pele quickly commented back to TYA “the old guys like you?”

The Sheik evidently lost his brakes at the end of the sprint and wiped out LugNut & Ricky Bobby. Likely the brake accumulator failure.   Almost wiped out the entire leadership team of the Woodfin organization (or could we call it the Woodfin “braintrust”  — maybe not)

T-claps to Doner Kebab & Oyster for recognizing the truck pull was too easy with 4 members of the PAX. They turned around and pushed against the pull to create more resistance. Forcing Ricky Bobby to grab the strap with more than his thumb and index finger.

TYA continues to impress with the lack of High Knee bends skills. Only to be topped by LugNut’s inability to remember “starting position” in the cadence and allowing Brain Tumor, Wedding Singer, & The Sheik to be on the truck pull at the same time. Epic Fail, way to easy.


Forecast for tomorrow morning: 70 degrees and sunny…see you then.
