The Early Edition Moleskin:

1. The idea for the Perfect Burpee workout was stolen from @HardHat from Greenville (#Swamp Rabbit), but he called it Dora and I still don’t understand why. Regardless, its one of those that challenges the body and the mind.

2. @Icicle and @Toro beat @Shazam and @The Nanny in completing the Perfect Burpee by una pequeña cantidad.

3. It was a little troubling to see how much @Shazam enjoyed staring into @The Nanny’s eyes during the bike rack mericans and dips.

4. Welcome FNG @Klean Up and thanks to the pax for the naming help!  This Florida Gator was sweating when a few pax wanted to name him Seminole.

5. T-Claps to @BOS who was the only man dumb  strong enough to complete the Double Down this morning!

As always it was an honor and a pleasure to Q this morning. Ahoy!

    @Maximus – Thanks for the push and for partnering with me today. I loved the face that @Klean Up made during COT when he heard you say 60 for your age. #RESPECT #Stud
