The clock struck 5:29, and panic set in for YHC. Maize had brought his Blenheim clown car crewe, but no extra kettlebells were visibile in the gloom. Grumble chatter abounded.
My trusty Weinke featured no audibles…the best laid plans of mice and men. And then, emerging from the fog on his Subaru steed, like one of the horsemen of the Apocalypse came
Vila, to rain down kettlebells on the unsuspecting PAX. We then set forth a-counquering.

Romans 5:3-5
And not only that, but we also boast in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.
