  1. Enjoyed my first trip out to No Toll. It’s nice not to have to look out for roots and sticks every once in a while. Great Q Circle K.

  2. Great to have you visit and Q at NoToll Circle K. The Hard Way is always a good time. Adding the burpee suicides at the end was icing on the cake after the last round of the Hard way. The fields are getting better with the weather, pretty soon Hardywood will be going barefoot.

  3. Good times ⭕️ K

    Thanks for leading the beat down. I limped in and worked out the kinks with all those burpees. I feel much better now ?

  4. Hate that I missed it Circle K! Strong work boys, hope to join you guys again soon!

  5. Absolutely they are, both mama and baby are home resting comfortably. Millie is eating and sleeping great, now to keep it that way!

  6. Nice work Circle K. Definitely Sorry (Not Sorry) to have missed this one – my shoulder might have just exploded. I did miss the lush fields of NoToll though as I was experience the climb to Mt. Henrico.

    Marmaduke – great to hear everyone is doing well at home. Congrats and good luck with that sleep thing…

  7. Great Q Circle K! This was my first Hard Way and this was no joke. JVille and Rosie absolutely smoked this workout. Way to crush it fellas!!
