Circle of Trust (CoT):
Thanks to the guys that came out and posted with me for the inaugural #SecondChoiceThursday I feel like 4 PAX showing up on a Thursday morning to put their faith in me is awesome. Way to get better men; Rump prayed us out.

I pulled up to Sex Panther sitting on a table and feet up on the bench, looking like some kid out of a random 80’s movie at the skate park after the lights had come on and all the other kids had gone home to eat dinner. sally showed up next and it was time, was there just three of us..? AND… Ummm, hey guys playing tennis at 530am in the morning. Didn’t you realize I was planning to use those courts?

We got started and made the disclaimer and got started with the Mickey Mouse Merk’s which seem to promptly get everyone’s attention. I did forget to explain the “get up” in between reps and didn’t realize myself until it felt awkward! After the Warm-O-Rama I let DJ Google (Cardio Hip-Hop) playlist take over. Sally, Sex Panther, and YHC were finishing our mosey around the park when Sweet Baby finally decided to show up! For which I was thankful for as I had Lazy Dora planned which works waaay better with partners. I was impressed with the turn out on a Thursday morning, I hope this to be a weekly “Second Choice Thursday” moving forward.

Q Source tomorrow @ 1130, usually Preston Center-ish
