  1. Prometheus holds a special place in my heart. I’m fairly certain that I was present for the launch of the site and I’m glad to see that it has held up to its reputation as a total #smokefest – except when it comes to burpees, apparently. There was about to be a mutiny when I called the last 41 burpees and I caved to the pressure…because, let’s be honest…I was completely and wholly smoked. I’m not sure I could have knocked them all out anyway.
  2. Panda rolled in like 15 minutes late, so he owes the first two rounds at the circle. Just FYI for next week. If he’s not there, you can just have Boba Fett #poormanspanda do it.
  3. Much groaning throughout the workout, but particularly from Kickin Chicken. Brother just wants to do Rosalitas the whole time, I guess. But he redeemed himself by bringing cold bottled water for the PAX for the COT, proving yet again why we put up with his complaining and might even enjoy his presence occasionally.
  4. Nibbs was weirdly quiet. Nibbs, you good, man? I expect more #mumblechatter from you if you’re going to cheat so much on the AYG.
  5. Rhapsody continues to smoke everyone, all the time. Too bad Orange Whip wasn’t there to give him a run for his money.

All kidding aside, it was great to be back at Prometheus and I promise it won’t be 3 more years before it happens again. All the best fellas. See you in the #gloom.
