A few groups made it through the list at each end before OMAHA called for some Mary back at the circle..


  • Plank-O-Rama (while YHC retrieved phone.. woot!)
  • WW2 sit-up IC
  • Pickle Pushers IC (thanks Wolverine)
  • American Hammer (thanks Xerox)


  • Strong turnout for 3-2-1 5k supporting Downs Syndrome and especially our PAX whose families are affected.  12 PAX brought it – Nice Job, Men!
  • Crawlspace is taking over Cougar Town; no more reason to avoid it on account of TPS.. LOL
  • Slumlord and TPS have spartan race in T-minus 3-weeks… join them!
  • Good job those PAX who took on the Proehlific Park obstacle course on Friday – None under 30min, but T-claps to Tommy Boy who bested most of the competition.


  • Great to see Udders at Circle Time for his AO challenge check-list!  Missed Stubing; rumor has it he fartsacked, but nothing confirmed… could have posted to his usual Quaker Crater. We’ll see if he reads this backblast.
  • Yes, YHC hates running, but knows it’s good for the soul and the waistline.. sorry to disappoint those expecting a Pseudo-Sweat Angel workout. Bodett would be proud #TruthfulPreblast
  • Way to push it this morning, guys!  Was glad to be paired off running with Brown Noser to keep me honest; and have so many complete the cycle to start over before omaha!
  • Everest kicking in the afterburner on the run – all that Shake and Bake really paying off, man!
  • Xerox seems to be getting grumpier.. calling the Nick Nolte cadence (Wolverine)
  • What’s a body destroyer??   #PlanksAreLessFun

COT – YHC took us out.  “Don’t wish it was easier, wish you were better.” – Jim Rohn

A deep and true honor to lead today.  You guys inspire me,
