Arms Race


17 Faithful beat the fartsack this morning for the gun show at Mary Munford Elementary. Most of the PAX seemed to have figured out the parking situation, and @Bleeder planted the shovel flag. An extended #mumblechatter-style “Happy Birthday” to Fudd was rudely interrupted as YHC kicked off the festivities.


Mosey to the NW corner of the school grounds

Great to see @Razor back with us. Welcome back!

Others have probably noticed as well, but @Toucan is doing an excellent job of showing up, working hard, and really getting better, faster, stronger. Keep it up!

#Mumblechatter was pretty scarce this morning, Hopefully a sign of a good & challenging workout.

YHC is keenly aware of my need to improve on arm exercises, particularly pull-ups. Today’s workout was a kick-start to improve. Today I took a before picture, and took a look into the future for the after version.

Hopefully this benefitted the PAX as well and your arm soreness later on will be evidence of getting stronger.

The Steelers have the Rams this week. Can they repeat what the Redskins did last week? #KirkCousinsMVP
