     – This was so dumb. But it was also really hard. That’s what they said.

*Except for Slots, because he’s on PEDs

MARY: We planked for 60 seconds, which felt like 60 minutes. TWTS. 

COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA: Five for Fighting (the alarm clock): Slots (boastfully), Hot n Ready (reluctantly), Landline (hesitantly), Chuck E. Cheese (suspiciously), Captain Obvious (regretfully) 

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM: Children don’t say, “I had a hard day. Can we talk?” They say, “Will you play with me?” Don’t miss that.

MOLESKIN: ‘Twas a sticky day for all in attendance. The AOQ continues to produce quality melons for post-workout recovery. Today, he even brought in one of the seedless variety. The men were very much obliged to not have to work through their free fruity snack like some sort of pencil-wielding school nurse, scouring the poorly-washed hairs of prepubescent school children in search of mythical parasites. We did the majority of our work today in front of the school, which consists of a gentle slope, met by a plateau and capped by a steeper rise. Two hills for the price of one. Dueling Buttes, if you will. Arcadia is an AO with limitless possibilities. Check it out soon, dear reader, if you have not yet. 

ANNOUNCEMENTS: F3 Memphis bday bash on Aug 17. Don’t miss the kickoff to our terrible twos.
