Workout Date:





Sunshine, Boxcar, Brownbag, El Red Cardo, High Interest, Skidmark, Beef Steak, Rocky Top, Quaker (QIC)

The Thang:

YHC couldn’t sleep the night before his Q at the Village. YHC was up every hour on the hour in anticipation (or was it that cup of coffee at 9 PM?) of the Beatdown. Either way every time YHC awoke he was thinking about the upcoming Beatdown!! The night before, YHC tweeted out that the Village would be hosting the “Beatdown of the Week” and immediately HC came in from Boxcar & Skidmark. Great!   Brownbag, El Red Cardo, and Beefsteak are always there (even if one of them sneaks in during the COP!) so YHC knew there would be six of us at least which is a good starting point and would make my Wienke work!

YHC arrived at the AO early (5:15 ish) blocked off part of the Parking lot with cones and started to lay out assorted coupons at 6 pain stations around the Main Lot. Besides the coupons from the back of YHC’s truck, cinder blocks and pavers were also used. By 5:28 the stage and by 5:30 nine HIM (including Sunshine, High Interest, and Rocky Top) were eagerly beginning the COP in anticipation of the coming Beatdown. YHC was hoping for even numbers & double digits but missed each by one. No worries, we had a solid crew and the burn would commence as scheduled!!
