– OK, so the name of this workout is officially the “Urban Sombrero”.

Slaughter – “Want Ad, this workout needs to be called the Urban Sombrero”.

Uh, OK. Sure.

Apparently it’s Curly’s hat of choice for golf outings.  Peterman would be proud.  Speaking of Slaughter, man it’s good to see you back out there brother.  Strong work today and you haven’t missed a step. Cobains for the Makthar n’ Diaye burpees BTW.

– In case you didn’t know the Dunkin Donuts is open at 5:19am.  Curly can verify that as he dropped a deuce in there this am and managed to down a 1/2 dozen jelly filled and still finish his burpees.

– Vamos still doesn’t like running.

–  A little over 4 miles today and lots of upper body work. Stinger, Starbuck, Curly among others up front all morning.


– Give to Give campaign. Please donate if you can.  Month of August is the fundraiser. Go to the site for details.

– If your not running the BRR the morning of at 9:30 is the Sole to Sole fundraiser. It’s a mile lunge walk from the Men’s Shelter to NoDa Brewery. If you can still walk after a mile lunge you can drink some beer.

Thanks for the takeout Slaughter and to you and Curly for the opportunity to Q these Bad A$$es.

Until Next Time
