Well done to all Pax members this morning. The bootcampers covered quite a bit of ground as well. Along the way, we saw many squirrels, rabbits, and a cat who was wondering why we were doing burpees in it’s cul-de-sac. It’s also possible the cat was considering joining us.

For YHC, the summer months when it is light in the morning allows us to visit parts of the Atlee Campus and surrounding neighborhoods that might not be possible during other parts of the year when it is darker.

Today, YHC introduced the Poor Randy to the DaVille Pax. And yes, YHC does know that this is from A Christmas Story and not Christmas Vacation even though he might have said otherwise when introducing the exercise. This is quite an exercise Wilson and Marmaduke.

Announcements – SOJ Takeover week is next week. Let’s show them some good numbers at the DaVille AOs.

It was a pleasure to lead this morning.

Gotta Run!
