The PAX thought they were done. However, Birdman had made a wisecrack to Slaughter about there not being enough burpees in the workout, so Slaughter dropped another 25 burpees on the crew to polish things off. Hopefully Birdman learned a lesson.
Count-o-rama is easy in the virtual world. You just look at the meeting participants. Name-o-rama was conducted. We need to work on our mute button etiquette or refine this process, but the mission was accomplished nonetheless.
Announcements: • Turkey Trot @ Futurama tomorrow• 5k ruck at The Berm tomorrow.• Qs needed for The Matrix• Quick discussion about PAX acquiring other equipment to keep things fresh (jump ropes, chairs, coupons, etc.)• Wednesday will likely be a heavy metal/coupon day at the Matrix

Word-of-wisdom:• Per his SOP, Slaughter just read a quote: “Neo, sooner or later you’re going to realize, just as I did, there’s a difference between knowing the path and walking the path.”
