  • YHC took the PAX out in Prayer


  • YHC arrived early enough to watch the dynamic Breakfast Club duo, Gomer Pile and Hitchhiker, make their honorable entrance. YHC took a few minutes to review the plan before Q’ing two workouts back to back – but the sage advice of GP was well appreciate, “Fight the Enemy, Not the Plan” …in other words, have a plan in place, but be ready to adjust in order to win. Well, 0600 arrived, and the PAX took off, complemented by the down range powerhouse Linked In – welcome! Some highlights of the morning were a few rolled eyes with the 8-count No Cheat Merkins, nobody slipping to their death going up and down the wet amphitheater steps, the heroic effort and enthusiasm the entire PAX put into CRUSHING the Gun Show Dora, two separate “Bodos” salutes (blocks broken to smithereens), Gomer Pile hazing Bodos on his block curls quality, and the groans and mumble chatter accompanying the Murder Bunnies and BBJO’s to end the morning. YHC is honored as always to be a part of this group. Thx for letting me lead today brothers. SYITG, DTH
