A Few Merkins at Jumanji

10 faithful posted at Jumanji Thursday morning, some regular members of The Herd and some traveling pax. Especially in a smaller group, #mumblechatter is a special thing. It started heavy but lessened throughout the 45 minute beatdown that consisted of a few merkins, good cardio, several burpees (we did 172.. that’s a new record, right?), bear crawls, you name it. The Herd performed well and a good time was had by all.
