BOMBS over Oglethorpe

Doesn't have the same ring to it huh? 9 braved the post-Halloween gloom to see if there was any Snickers, M&M, and Warhead sugar still in the bloodstream to fuel a workout.  Spoiler alert: there was The Thang: Disclaimer Mosey to Home Tree COP: SSH x 15 Scorpion dry docks x 10 each leg Baryshnikovs [...]

Nine PAX showed up today ready to put in work…and put in work they would because, since YHC is nursing a potential foot problem, there would be no moseys…which forced me [...]
