1. Thanks for allowing me the opportunity to lead, men, and for the grace in my lack of proper cadence on a few occasions.
2. Glad to see Hootie back in the swing of things. Could barely tell you’d been laid up or had surgery!
3. Tclaps to those men (didn’t get an official count) who also did the Bull Run prior. Strong work!
4. For all the mumble-chatter about there being more than 4 Kings (13 reps), go back and count! Each number we did 4 times, and did all 52! =)

    Nice lead, @SunDial. The Merican/Burpee combos were terrible – still feeling that in the chest and arms.

    @Rooster – welcome back out. Judging by the flying squirrel burpees, you’ve been keeping at it in your spare time, but always great to have you out with us as well.

    Shout out to @SoloCup: Bull Run, then the workout, then posts a ~24minute 5k at UNCC. Strong work!

    I believe there were also 3 out before the workout for @Gappers mud run training. Nice job!
