I Should Have Went Running…

Five strong PAX, including YHC, gathered to stretch and and keep themselves limber.  It was fast paced and intense.  So much so that one Pax was overheard saying, “I should have went running”.  Got to take the compliments when you can!

Great work by all – I know some of the positions/stretches were tough but your body will thank you in the long run.  Don’t let your “lack of flexibility” stop you from coming, keep coming so you can get MORE FLEXIBLE!

    Great work men and an honor to lead as always. Great to see some new Warrior One PAX – Shameless, Honeydo, Starsky. Keep coming and getting more flexible. You will need it because SSMinnow is leading tomorrow and I think “running” will be involved – your hip flexors will thank you! You are welcome 😉

    Great lead Othello! I concur… very nice to see folks take advantage of this tremendous workout option.
