So yhc has his BD week #55 going down this week. Always wanted a Tattoo so I’m chasing the Mamba Challenge. Rather than Q a week of beatdowns yhc decided to get some special pax in the gloom with us to help celebrate and spread the Q juice.

Yhc led the warmorama with 55 SSH IC 20 IW IC and 10 gravel pickers IC

Brackish and Ugly Stik Q’d the Thang. Brackish had us do some basketball, Cindy relay routine that sucked, but team #2 won! Then Ugly Stik brought an escalator to the party that included 10 burpees, 20 merkins, 30 shoulder taps and 40 shoulder press.

We finished up with a game of knockout that Brackish won. Feels like it was rigged.

What a blessing to have a bunch of friends who will meet you at the park to play when you are turning 55! If you missed it, come join us. The party will be going on all week. Yhc is going to shine a spot light on a fundraiser Drip is working on. Vigilante Hope has a multi-year leadership program where they take the least of these, get them in community, teach them new skills, and prepare them to live productive and fruitful lives. He needs a small amount of $ to make it work. They love people where they find them, but love them too much to leave them there. Sound familiar? Hit Drip up and find out how you can help.

I love this brotherhood and cannot imagine where I would be without it. Thank you.

Always an Honor and a Blessing, LETC out

After a warm up and stretches, YHC alternated between running up and down some steps and an 11 (LBC and Merkins) while perch did gravel pickers and alternate leg lunges and Matt Biondys in the water.

Next YHC did Imperial Walkers, Dollies, Boxcutters, Bicycle Sit Ups, Dying Cockroach and Carolina Claims.

The workout ended with a few remaining Merkins and sprints up and down the steps followed by mosey on the beach in search of shells. Perch being hungry after the workout flew off in search of some salted bugs to eat.
