Bunch of Idiots

YHC means ‘bunch of idiots’ in the nicest way possible. Maybe. I don’t know. Could’ve been worse as one of the main ones was Qing elsewhere. Too bad Soaker wasn’t there to reign in the pax. He’s the biggest adult we have.  Nevertheless, it was a good morning. Work was done. Fellowship was had. And …

Hug it out

Weather was #realnice for the Tuesday edition of Shawshank, however, the fields were a little damp. While the damp fields were a source of complaining for some pax, others went into Michael Scott mode. Dunphy wanted some #mantouching but, alas, there was none. It was a pretty good morning in the #gloom.  Here’s what we …

5 Years and Counting

5 years…when you say it like that, you wonder where it went, to loosely quote Morgan Freeman in Shawshank Redemption.  YHC remembers that morning, 2/9/16, like it was yesterday, because in some ways, it feels like it WAS yesterday, while in others it feels like I have known these men all my life.  The brotherhood …

Vote for Ken Doll

YHC was not feeling it today, especially after skipping yesterday, but the men of Shawshank pulled him through as always. We dedicated this workout to Ken Doll’s campaign for Lexington One School District Board member, mainly to make fun of a certain brown nosing 9/11 Memorial team whose name will only be mentioned in the …

Saved by Mary

Weather Conditions: 46° & Clear 13 Pax came ready to work at the Shanks temporary location this morning.  There was a slight chill in the air, but that was not going to stop anyone from pushing themselves to get better.  YHCs instruction game still leaves something to be desired, and things went a little off …
