Fresh Air

A 76 degree morning where each breath felt like being waterboarded greeted 13 of Metro/A51’s finest. After 2 straight weeks of entering Pellyn Woods after 25 minutes of DMZ, YHC knew one thing, we weren’t going there.

Depart Carmel Park and head down Carmel Rd and stop at the McMansion cul-de-sac of Tufton Brae for COP.

Quiet, focused group this morning with little mumblechatter. The 127% humidity probably had something to do with it. YHC had led a Governator work out down Tottenham probably a year or two ago and my God the smell of that road on trash day was awful. Not YHCs best decision. But Monday, ahhh Monday nothing but clean, muggy North Carolina July air to speak of on Tottenham. That is until the 13 Pax got their sweat going. Still, had to be better than that Wednesday. YHC was partnered with Pearl who much to YHCs chagrin found out at COT he is 18. Freaking 18!!! He’s a beast too. Imagine if Benefactor or Chalet had a little brother and he was trying to step out of their shadow. I don’t think we met once in the natural mid-point for handslap merkins. It was a great push though for YHC. The Pax logged a 5K of running time with an attempt at hitting every major muscle group. Chelms took us out and into our work week.

Chelms putting in a plug for Revolution and Revolution 2.0 on Saturday. Details on the website and twitter.
Chimbote interest meeting see Backups Twitter for details.
