Kenny G Would Be Proud

Kenny G Would Be Proud

Workout Date:





Beaker, Brownbag, Weasel, Enron, Cubby, Viagra, Kapow, Quaker (QIC)

The Thang:

AO: TimeShare

Conditions: 36 Degrees

Apparently the PAX are a bit different on the Northend. They only listen to Guns N Roses every couple of years and Kenny G is a crowd favorite!! Even though their music preferences are questionable, these men are hardcore; they push themselves and each other. Whatever YHC threw at them they took it in stride and never complained once.

After my last visit to Timeshare (100% Burpees workout with sprints for recovery),See “The First 71 Burpees are the Hardest” BackBlast (1/3/19), YHC wasn’t too sure if anyone would post when they saw YHC’s name on the Qsheet! So to avoid the possibility of a Solo Q, I asked Brownbag if he would like to join me for the beatdown!(#fledgling bromance???) . . . He jumped at the opportunity and we agreed to meet at 6am and Clowncar to the AO. As I formulated my Weinke I recalled from Brownbag’s recent Beatdowns that he has the Midas Touch with music mixes and YHC asked if he so kindly would add the Beats to the Beatdown . . .once again he jumped at the chance!

We made excellent time traveling to NM and arrived almost 15 minutes prior to the schedule 6:30 start time. At first we were the only PAX at the AO but as time approached, Cubby rolled in, then Viagra & Enron. Weasel posted next, followed by Beaker. So far so good. Rumor had it that a Clowncar from just across our border to the North (not Canada, you hoser!) brought 3 regulars on Saturday Mornings. And then as if on que, Kapow can rollin’ down Main Street! Unfortunately (or fortunately) he was a only 1 Man Gang. The PAX were set as the the 1 Minute Warning was given and Brownbag struck up YHC’s intro music  . . . “Welcome to the Jungle!” The energy in the air felt more like a  sporting event then a beatdown (picture your favorite WWE Wrestler coming down isle), the only thing that was missing was a fog machine!! #maybenexttime

YHC gave the PAX a choice this morning between starting the beatdown with Jacobs Ladder or a Ring of Fire . . .no one was really sure what Jacob’s Ladder was so the PAX chose it!! We retrieved a paver for each PAX from the back of YHC’s truck and lined up  shoulder to shoulder in the middle of the parking lot. YHC brought coupons just in case the AO did not have a coupon pile of their own. YHC did discover, however, that there does exist a northern coupon pile, but it smell of cat urine!! #nothanksIllbringmyown
