Pax of 12 braved the cold this morning.  Which was fairly impressive, don’t know if I’d have made it if I hadn’t signed up to Q.  There’s a message in that statement for some.   After warm up we did a burpee run up the entrance to the club – 1 burpee at each lighted tree then a mosey back to the relative warmth underneath the clubhouse for 100 merkins, 200 LBC’s, 300 American Hammers and 400 squats split between partners combined with a Blue Hawaiian lap with bear crawls at the start and finish.

Finished with a short Mary.

Always a pleasure to lead…Tom.
