Battle Flu

Battle flu is real. YHC felt a little under the weather Friday night and Saturday morning. After posting at Battle, YHC spent the rest of the day trying to figure out whether YHC was sick or just suffering from Battle Flu. General aches, pains, and exhaustion – classic symptoms of Battle Flu. YHC is happy …

On like Donkey Kong

Battle is an experience not matched at any other AO.  It had been a while since YHC had been attended, and 5 minutes into the workout YHC realized how much he’d missed.  Battle guys are not normal human beings.  They’re a little nuts (as is YHC) and crazy loves company.  This past weekend 13 crazies …
