Better late than never. 8 pax this morning at anchor on what started as a sucky workout that eventually redeemed itself. Warmups then took laps around the park while I made up workouts to do on or around benches. In cadence, exercise: Decline merkins, dips, step ups, incline merkins, LBC’s, Burpees. Probably some other things. […]

18 Pax gathered in the late morning (7am) gloom at the Durbin Crossing Park, aka The Gauntlet.  It was a perfect morning for this record-setting crowd at this beautiful and relatively new AO: 64 degrees and sunny, just like YHC’s disposition while reviewing the weinke. I was also delighted by the fact that my 2.0 was […]
