#Thunder echoes through hills of Shandon

17 pax shook out the cobwebs at #Thunder from the three (or four, or five depending on who you are) day weekend and got after it under the direction of Adrian.  As already discussed, attendance was down across the entire F3Columbia Region this morning and one can only assume it’s because most pax thought it was Monday.  #riiight.  Be that as it may, Adrian delivered for these 17 men and by the end of the workout all were ready for the COT.

  • Adrian answered the call with authority today.  This session was run at a brisk pace and t-claps for exploring new Shandon Space.  Seeker: “I’ve worked at Shandon Pres. for 13 years and have never done this (iron-cross) in this yard!”
