Coffeeteria at Einsteins


Warm welcome (homecoming) to Epstein, formerly of RVA (Freeman grad) and now residing south of the border. Strong posting for a KBell Virgin – rookie to veteran in about 18 minutes. Epstein’s bringing back to K’Ville best regards to Jordache and others who have posted to the GridIron.

Attila found his groove with the newly introduced MB Rock and Roll Squat – so much that the Pax detected a smile that replaced the more commonly observed yawn.

Some relief from angry Johnsonville’s Q last week and his affection for running generally – we planted the Virtual ShovelFlag at the Pavillion and kept the AO tight with a 75 yard radius. White Deer appreciated the gesture so much he agreed to Q the Circus Maximus on Thursday.

The debut of the 300 was well-received and provided a good test for the Pax – repeats coming so keep your KBells in your cars. Add a MB and jump rope too.

Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help, who rely on horses, who trust in the multitude of their chariots and in the great strength of their horsemen, but do not look to the Holy One of Israel, or seek help from the LORD.

Isaiah 31:1
