Shawshank BB 08.06.19

One Minute Warning:



The weather: Low 70’s and Humid.

Always enjoy my Q’s at the Shank, despite their relentless mumblechatter and inability to follow the simplest of directions (Hash and Rice that was for you).

Not surprised in the least to see several of the pax holding each other accountable on Twitter with post of them finishing the extra reps of their August Challenge as soon as they got home. This was a tough one that was definitely not friendly to the goals of this challenge.

No doubt a very strong AO, with a bunch of top notch pax.

Run to light pole 2 and perform 10 burpees

Run back to light pole 1 and perform 10 star jumps.
