Beat the Clock @ The Playground

When: 05/02/18

Where: The Playground

The Pax: The Mole, Hasboro, Dosido, Chitwood, Dory, Dandy, Yokel, Toto (FNG)

QIC: Smurfette

YHC’s first Q at The Playground was greeted with optimism and excitement…minus Hasboro’s expected subtle jabs (“I hate you Smurfette”). The first car in the parking lot belonged to our eager FNG, now Toto, who was anxiously anticipating his first day and wanted to clarify that this was intact a “non-running” workout! After being reassured, he jumped in and embraced the suck. Props to Toto for beating the fartsack and giving it everything he had this morning. The entire Pax stepped up to the challenge and beat the running clock. At one point YHC was tempted to cut the workout down a round, but the Pax was clearly committed to getting all of the work done. Great job!
