The NakedMan Moleskin:

  1. Great work this morning fellas! This was my virgin Q. I’m very happy to be a part of a great group of men. Thanks for allowing me the opportunity to lead! It didn’t seem as aggressive on paper, but I’m fatigued for sure.
  2. This is breast cancer awareness month. Special prayers for all those impacted (especially @ShortCircuit’s friend).
  3. TClaps to the mud runners… way to bring it home @Bull and crew!
  4. Counting up the total # of merkins between the PAX, we were very close to 6006. Here’s a link to the Charles Linster story if you’re interested… http://www.recordholders.org/en/list/ulysses.html

    Great first lead, Clueless. I knew we were in trouble when you mentioned Charles Linster’s record. A quick count shows over 250 Merkins and over 1300 yards of sprints. Good thing we had the “recovery” exercises in between…

    Great to see Escalade and Coppertone back out there.

    Great virgin Q, Clueless. Do us all a favor before your next Q and don’t learn about whoever holds the world record for longest bear crawl!

    Nice lead Clueless. I plan by my six month anniversary to be able to do all those Merkins… cuz this morning those Merkins got my arms and chest Twerkin!

    I wonder if we didn’t rag Clueless about his cadence counting, would he have made up some story about a guy who did 6,006 merkins? I’m glad I’m responding now, because tomorrow I don’t think I’ll be able to raise my arms high enough to wipe my butt, let alone type on a computer. Good night PAX.

    @Clueless – great virgin Q! If that was your first, I can only imagine what your future Qs will be. Enjoyed it.
