1) Much like in Thorpe’s time, it seems the PAINtathlon is a two day event (no time for distance run, core, or upper body finals). I was really looking forward to the distance run final. Maybe next time. Plan was for a full body workout, but it turned into a lower body beatdown.

2) A lot of chirping early in work out, PAX piped down a bit during the LBC/Mountian Climber 11’s though…

3) T-Claps to the 2 FNG’s today! Way to bring it. And One is War Daddy and one is War Baby! I believe that is a first.

4) FNG Chris and Jorel were only 2 MEN who posted after attending HH last night. Must have been a good one!

5) Conflicting reports of head count (DT had 23). If I missed anyone, I apoligize.
