AO: Catapult

Warm and humid with no end in sight

Since Catapult doesn’t actually meet on the 9/11 anniversary, we honored the fallen hero’s a day early. With some conflicting research I developed a workout to honor the fallen Police Officers, Firefighters, Medical Professionals,   Etc… you get the idea of what I was going for.  I’ll never forget the day as i long as I live, the moment it happened and meeting with co-workers to watch the terrorism hit this county.

I arrived approximately 15 minutes early with no one in site. I was worried that this might be another solo mission. Catapult has lower number and I also seem to produce even less. I do shower the night before. Anyway, three Pax in unison to save the day. Whew!
