PAX is greeted with the mission statement, 5 core principles and the disclaimer. I always like to joke that I am kinda a professional if you were 8. PE teacher humor.

Windmills in a slow IC and I joke it might be called an Abe Vagoda according to the Exicon, Im just joking with the OG’s in the group. Heard Wait Time say its a hill he would die on.
11’s between 2 sets of lights. I picked to 2 dumbest exercises we have. Nactar Indiys and Hydraulic Squats. Upon announcing that Slow Pitch has some choice words for YHC and it made me smile. Because I agree with him. Wish someone in charge could have done something about that.

Mosey back to the flags.
Khakis suggest a move over with a group this size and we do. Makes room for cars coming by for the 7 am beatdown.
32 Rancid style Hammers. Honestly I love this because It makes for a great count off.
3rd F opportunities. Check Slack
So today I tried to put out a very had beatdown or at least what I perceived as one. In fact I had down this exact one before at Top Rope but there where only 5 guys there to do it. It hurt my pride and I perceived it at the time as a negative thing. But by the end of the workout I realized that it was a great beatdown and I was grateful for the 5 men who did it with me, because it doesn’t matter if their are 5 or 32 men with you in the gloom in the morning. As long as their is a man and a flag acceleration will happen on that day. And my perception changed on how many HIM are needed for a great morning.
