7 burly men showed up today, scaring off the rain with their huge arms and puffed out chests. Major Pain, Maximus, and YHC showed up extra early for a little pre run of 2 miles. I got a little worried when we came back and saw only 2 new cars (with Urlacher pulling in) that some men chose the warm fartsack instead of the possible cold rain. But instead they were all STRONG iron fist men, the pre runners from Valley were nowhere to be seen. (Though apparently Dingo ran to Tradition then to the Valley? pre-pre-run?)

*As I suspected, the Major was having none of the shadow boxing silliness and did things like planking….. Technically I could pretend he was training for the Muay Thai sprawl defense by doing the plank….
At this point, Shawshank was amped up by all the fighting that he had to rush off to jail.

Good workout this morning men. Notice how the rain decided to return only once I had us head under the portico? Hmmm……
Remember the Healthy Eating Challenge is going on now. Seeker has sent out a few emails, most recent was on Sunday. You can join it through the links in there if you haven’t already. Hope everyone has a good day. And hopefully I didn’t forget any Pax names. Traffic was extra bad so I had to leave ASAP and am copying and pasting / adding to this at work as I’m able…. and can’t exactly pull out the phone to double check the name recording.
