Mumblechatter friendly beatdown at The Valley

5 men escaped the icy (well, probably warm) clutches (well, more like inviting arms) of the fartsack and posted for the second Monday at the Valley!  As YHC arrived at 5:29, the pax were asking if headlamps would be necessary.  I am thinking that it might always be a good idea to bring headlamps to this AO!  YHC gave a mobile disclaimer and then we were off!

As always, it was a pleasure leading this morning. The Valley has lots of potential. One of the fun things about a new AO is discovering all of the things you can play with. Qs, sign up and lead!

That new track is kind of weird…gravel/asphalt combo? I’m sure we’ll put it to good use.

There are other toys at that AO that I’ve scoped out that I didn’t use…pax, come to my workout there in a few weeks to experience them and Qs, I challenge you to find them before I do!


The Murph is next Monday. Will there be one here? We don’t know! Stay tuned.

Also, I think the Happy Hour is this Wednesday at Carolina Ale House at Concord Mills @7pm.

      Yeah I was surprised to not see some of the usual suspects, especially after I tweeted that it would be mumblechatter friendly. I guess @Coyote is still nursing his ankle, it was a FIA morning for team @Jelly, and you FSed. I’ll be back there soon!

        I was busy moving a HEAVY kettlebell around this morning! Something you don’t know anything about 😉
