The first morning in the 30s for the fall did not prevent a large group from showing up. Although Kay was no where to be found.  We started by drawing a line in the sand, Cardio workout versus regular workout.  YHC attempted to guilt trip people into joining the cardio workout since only (6) people went that way…His attempts were in vain…We all moseyed to the big parking lot for the warmarama.  We took the concrete cylinders with us (they were there to simulate the weight difference between Gilmore before and after taking care of business mid-workout).

We then started the thang by moseying around to show everyone where the (4) corners were.

Then the thang began. YHC has no idea how the four corners workout went, but hopes someone that did it will post a comment…Meanwhile, the Merlot Marathon relay went swimmingly. (6) loyal to the Q pax dominated concrete testing cylinders up and down the parking lot.  @Fergie, fresh off of a half-marathon dominated the relay. @Kryptonite didn’t even hobble…Meanwhile, Spicoli, High Heels, and one other Pax who is slipping Dean’s mind (@chipper?) was on the other Merlot Relay team…

We then Indian ran with the concrete cylinders to Mary’s…

Random Musings:

Spicoli continues to forget his F3 name!

Dr. Evil and Sludge did not appreciate YHC’s challenge to count!

The concrete cylinders did not weigh the same. So are light-weight concrete, others normal-weight.  It’s not your muscles being that different between arms.

Announcements: Sign up to Q (No one signed up for Friday or Saturday!)

Prayer Requests: Crankbait’s wife’s cousin Ashley – hard times.  Uncle of @Hardie has lung cancer.
