The Words “Recover Recover” were Music to my Ears

5 Men showed up in the brisk sunshine and 25F weather to tackle the Saturday Last Call Bootcamp. Yes, it was cold, but it was beautiful watching the sunrise. The Flag was planted, a brief disclaimer was given, and we got to work as follows:

– thanked God for Shazam and his family’s full recovery… welcome back!
– prayed for each HIM, and first responders safety.

– YHC thanks every PAX who supported me along the way to completing my first Iron-Q. It wasn’t easy and I’m glad it’s over… but I’m glad I did it and it feels good!
– during warmarama, YHC abruptly stopped the SSH at 19 without any inflection because YHC’s mind wandered… but at least he remembered to pay respects to Chowder.
– During one of the AMRAP sets with the squats, when the timer stopped, @Avalanche stayed in the squat position, and @sully commented something about him looking like he was taking a dump. Pretty funny after he pointed that out, and it almost became the title of the BB.
– YHC finally said Recover Recover, and it was like music to my ears… it was a long week, but thankful I could do it. Cheers!
