YHC arrived in a #clowncar of the Blenheim faithful, Grillz at the wheel.  We had all arrived ready to start this week off right…in the rain.  VSF was planted and the disclaimer was given.  We were all glad to have our brothers back from the adventure that is #BRR, but were in no mood to make this a running workout.  That said, Flatline get out of his car and commences doing a stretch akin to Imperial Walkers on steroids.  Dude’s a machine!  Little running, but much pain to be delivered.  Let’s do this!

YHC prayed us out.


  • Missing two of the PAX in the list below.  Limitations of iPhone recording.  Sound off in the comments and YHC will add you to the backblast.
  • Solid work by the PAX this morning.  Great Co-Q by Grillz.  There was a gleam in his eye this morning and it wasn’t sand from the volleyball court.  Be on the lookout for a Grillz Q soon.  It’s going to be hard, so you should probably avoid it.
  • The rain felt great, especially to wash off the sand.  Sure there were some Cantorres out there, but a solid showing Crucible with 17!
  • YHC has the dubious distinction of while giving maximum effort during Mary, letting something loose. Something that apparently caused Grillz to abandon cadence count and Cinderella to accuse YHC of killing an animal within himself.  Uh, sorry?
