Cheers’ House of Random Facts and Even More Random Reps Workout

YHC turns 40 tomorrow, so why not spend your last morning of being 39 getting up at 4:30 and figuring out how to make a bunch of dudes complain for an hour? Well, to be fair, only a few of the 14 men complained today, but all of them were at least THINKING about some form of complaint, even Ken Doll. YHC wouldn’t have it any other way. I’m so glad to spend some time with my other family, even if only for an hour and maybe a 45 minute breakfast afterwards. These men have made a sad clown nearly three years ago into someone that at least resembles a man now. I have been pushed in the last 3 years more than I have ever been pushed in 40 years. Whether it be mumblechatter, words of encouragement, or just being there, these men have challenged me in ways I could never explain, one would just have to experience it. YHC knows his F3 brothers always have his 6 and that means more than anyone could ever express in words. Below is the fun we had this morning. Come out to Shawshank in two Saturdays to experience YHC’s 3 year anniversary!
