YHC sailed away with most Q’s in 2018 (by a wide margin), and while I am proud of that, it always nagged at me that the guy responsible for getting me out there was never able to attend a single one of those Q’s.
The streak finally ended this morning.  Pumpkin came back, and frankly, in spite of exhaustion and sickness, the excitement over this gave me extra Qdrenaline.
The WOD is this: persistence. With help from Geek Squad, the persistence paid off and a HIM finally returned to the Gloom.  This is, of course, on the heels of the return of both Saddlebags and Snowflake! The challenge this week, especially with this crazy weather, is to remain persistence and deliberate in everything you do.


Pumpkin returned. Due to muscle memory, the workout wasn’t at all difficult.
According to Hasbro, my Q game needs work.  They just aren’t as difficult.
Geek Squad once again had quite the interesting “random” playlist.
Whittler recognized the irony of a Gold’s Gym ad during the workout.
