17 forewarned (and yet still showed up) men gathered for a delayed start to join the already risen sun for a true Burpee Beatdown.  Spirits were high and lifted even higher upon the white Presidential Suburban rolling in only to produce Bambi emerging from it with the biggest thighs in the tiniest shorts.

Having lost our Cul-de-sac to the Ferrel cat Pax, we did a quick warm up lap around the shelters and dog park, back to the Bball court for W-O-R.

Ball Court for final accounting of math.  Seeing we were just shy, a quick run of Ssuicides and 10 Burpees put the pax at a full accounting of 100 Burpees.  Nice job fellas!

Reflections – So glad to see Chipper come out after a very difficult week.  T-Claps to Yoyo and Special Ed for slugging it out on a fairly brutal Q.   Every has or will face injuries and we need to be smart about them, always modify if needed and support our fellow pax when they do.

Always a pleasure Gents – Crawdaddy
