Mark Twain once wrote:

“Eat a live frog first thing in the morning and it will be the hardest thing you do all day.”

And so we did…

A baker’s dozen Natville PAX decided to start their week off right by bringing some heat at 29-degrees!!! We started with a brief Intro and Disclaimer, but speeches not well received in cold temps… Boone’s Farm stepped forward to get the PAX rolling.

  • Part Deux… In the spirit of tonight’s CFP Championship:
    • Paired off for reps of below, alternating partners for traffic cones side-shuffle, front-back or Apollo Creed-style!  (Xerox suffered HS Football flashback and piled on with a verbal beatdown while) we punched out:

COT – YHC took us out.


  • Great Job Boone’s Farm stepping right up and leading the Warm O Rama!  Co-VQ out of the way – #OnwardAndUpward
  • Bodette continues to take away all excuses in 2016 – ran the 1/4 mile pre-start because he could, and completed a Mini-Mini Murph in style of Rocky Balboa – single armed for most of it!  #ShoulderInjuriesSuck
  • Xerox gets extra credit for high-stepping through the cones!!  #BoomThatJustHappened
  • Pickle Pusher (of all exercises to perform in an elementary school parking lot…) interrupted by a teacher’s early work arrival and most likely to surface somewhere on YouTube!  – Thankfully it was dark and all PAX disguised in winter clothing.


  • Q-School this coming FRIDAY (at Up-Town Funk) and SATURDAY (meeting off-site and then catching-up with Cornwallis’ Nightmare).  Details in pre-blast here!
    • Gilligan suggesting VIDEO of some Q-School if possible… Volunteers?
  • 2nd F – Some Natville PAX (starting with Utters)  viewing Clemson V. Alabama game tonight @ Rody’s Tavern.  No time announced… You know when to be there!
  • 3rd F – Encouraging all PAX to post to a 3rd F and Make It A Great Year!  Lots of great stuff happening – every day of the week now.
  • J-Love is looking in to securing AEDs (Automated External Defibrillators) for the Natville PAX.  Wikipedia link here FYI.  More to follow… stay tuned.
    • In the meantime suggestion was made by Kilowatt and YHC for Q’s to keep (or be responsible for seeing that someone has) a phone on them at all times in case of 911-type emergency.
    • Would also be good to get some CPR/AED training classes for interested PAX. See J-Love if any info to share.  #BetterSafeThanSorry

Always a profound honor to lead!

Thank you,

Long Time
