The Steps of Laurens Street

Nine very tough men posted in the gloom this very muggy 70 degree morning.  YHC decided to take a trek through his old high school stomping grounds.  The school is long gone but YHC decided to make use of the remaining steps that currently lead to nowhere.  YHC recalled walking up these steps his first day of high school and being scared to death of what the future might bring.  If the young version of YHC had looked into a crystal ball and witnessed his middle aged self humping the air doing Pretzel Lifts on the steps he would have been very, very afraid of his future for sure.  Hopefully our future will bring a new school near our AO with a key to a playground full of pull up bars and many, many steps. DisclaimerWarm up: SSH IC x 20
