The BackBlast:


“Freezing drizzle” was the forecast for the morning. All that means is everything was icy as sh*t. Five brave PAX made it out for the ice skating session, and surprisingly no one slipped on their a$$, but it was close. A short skate around the parking lot and it was off to the …

Naked Man Moleskin:

* Accurately named, we all did indeed look like goofballs doing this

** Normally a solid stretch, this one was a inner thigh workout just to keep your legs sliding out from under you and doing the splits

*** Possibly the slowest “sprint” to the front of the line YHC has seen, but we all survived without falling. High point was Tri-Delt and Excitebike trying to make it up the hill to the baseball complex and failing miserably, sliding back down

**** At this point the PAX thought they had an easy beatdown, but alas, the main event was just about to begin. Lots of groans and moans on this one … on the first round. Glorious.

***** YHC had so much fun with this last time, decided to try it again … and again, so much fun
