Numberama, Namerama, Announcements, YHC took us out.

Announcements:

  • Labor Day Convergence at Three Lakes Park at 7 am
  • F3 RVA 4 year anniversary on Saturday, 9/22 at Dogpile at 6 am followed by a run followed by a cook-out
  • Chewy has started a new business! Check out https://www.etsy.com/shop/DillonsJurassicArt

NMS:

YHC rolled into the parking lot to see Spit, Honey Do and EF Hutton already present and gearing up for the workout. The talking for the workout had already begun the night before when Mudface texted YHC and asked if  “should we come prepared to work or what?” Spit also texted YHC and wondered if SSHs or HRMs were now his favorite exercise…

The PAX circled up and YHC alerted them that this workout would give all of us a chance to figure out which exercise was more favored – SSHs or HRMs. The PAX proceeded to get to work in the COP with ample amounts of SSHs and HRMs. The opportunities continued during the 4x4x4x4 fun fest.

Spit took off fast in the 4x4x4x4. Some of the PAX noted that he cut short the initial set and Spit quickly adjusted. He then proceeded to crush the rest of it. EF Hutton, Opus and Honey Do were right behind him. Mudface continued to show us all how to build a warrior of a son through his encouragement and challenges to Chewy and Recess. Flounder pushed through and is demonstrating increasing strength every week. Emoji and Yardsale enjoyed some mumblechatter along the way too.

In the end, the PAX voted for the favored exercise out of SSHs and HRMs. HRMs won 6 to 4 (with one abstention). YHC stilled voted for SSHs but he is being won over to the HRMs because they reduce the possibility of short-cuts on the merkins.

It was a blast of a morning!
