QIC: Special Sauce


This beatdown turned out to be much more running then Special Sauce thought it would be. All in we covered about 3 miles – Life lesson: Distances on Google Maps are further than they appear. There was plenty of hate early on during the 5x5x5, but most of it subsided by round number 2 as most of the PAX, me included, was too winded to make words. Spread took a 4 second head start on the last gasser and was still caught by AA & Chairman – he blamed the loss on being old. Great to have Candy Cane back for a Wednesday workout, 10 minutes of bearcrawls is a great way to return from a torn rotator cuff. Boney Express tweaked his calf on the last gasser (diagnosed as a pull by Dr. Mao), but fought through the pain and was able to make it back to Caruth. Keep him in your thoughts as he was worried about the hostile comments from the M upon his return home.
