    A heads up for y’all this Sat: the Rocket City Marathon starts 8am downtown. The course passes over major east-west roads such as Governors, Drake, and Airport, so traffic will be slowed by local police.

    Ditto! Great job and nice #’s yesterday Josh G. Hope my comeback 65lb clean gets there someday. Hope your legs were okay to get up after the Nutcracker Ballet.

      Haha, did I miss you at the ballet? I try to step away from my boorish ways and get some culture once in a while.

    RX – 12:00

    40 sec. PR from last time we did it in Feb 2011. Cool morning air and frost on the parking lot felt great this morning! Great work 0600!

    Happy Birthday to one of the 0600 greats! I hope you have a great day Lesha!

    So glad I got to hug Lesha’s sweaty neck on her b’day!!! Attended 7am class. Still feeling some pain from where I strained my ab on Tuesday, so Tracey had me modify the burpees a bit. 12:25, scaled with that mod. So good to have Josh G back in the gym!

  8. Josh G says:

    Happy Birthday to Lesha, you are an awesome person and inspiration in the gym!

    12:16 RX – real ass-kicker for me as my shoulders need some serious work. Great job by all in the 7a.m. class!

    15:17 rx’d; Great job to the other four who showed up for the 0900 class. Way to push through! 105 burpees, I believe that’s the most I’ve ever done in a WOD. Thanks Robert for the push.

  13. James Stranahan says:

    Happy Birthday Lesha!!

    Observed wind tunnel tests at Tullahoma (Arnold AFB) all morning, had a superb late lunch at Miss Mary Bobos in Lynchburg, made it back to Huntsville in time for this WOD. Darn near visited Pukey about round 4 after all that food! 12:55 Rx
