9 JaxPax showed up for a nice, cool Saturday morning workout at Boondocks. YHC was leading his first Saturday beatdown — so it was sort-of technically a VQ. YHC decided that this workout was meant to keep the Pax together and in fellowship. The idea came from a lively discussion that Dredd started on Facebook […]
