Retooled 45 Minute BERT

AO: The Hooch

When: 08/14/2019

QIC: Flo

PAX (15): Boomer, Sunshine, Scrooge, Splinter, Doughboy, El Matador, Meatball, Ballboy, Saint20, Popper, Hamburglar, FlowMax (DR), Gramps (FNG), and Animal (FNG)


Good to see some numbers flowing back in for the #beatdowns and 2nd/3rd F coffeteria work.  Great to see two FNGs showing up and working hard and getting a visit from FlowMax.

Shout out to Cookie.  He had plans for me to grab the Q and for him to secretly take it.  Apparently, a gate with a bad attended wrecked those plans.  Praying he is back to snuff for the GrowRuck event.



Quick Disclaimer…then a big mosey lap with some high knees, buttkickers, and side shuffles.  Circled it up for some SSHs and Mountain Climbers- 15 IC

Big Prayers up to an immeasurably bigger God.  Health, work, relocation, and other life stuff.  Glad to have each other through thick and thin.
