Sprinkled a little words of wisdom throughout the resting portions of the workout.  Told the newer gents about Fitness Fellowship and Faith and what this whole thing is about.  We’re out here to make each other better men, co workers, friends, husbands you name it.  Pretty sooner Hacksaw will be standing on its own two feet supported by the men of Ooltewah/Collegedale ready to make a positive impact.  Can’t wait to see it explode.


About twice the pax as expected today.  ‘Twas an awesome turnout.

John Doe and Toe Tag are hilariously connected names.  Ask em about it.

4 FNGs today is solid but one had to bounce early.  Gotta name him next time!

Great names today.  T-Rex has a crazy long wingspan, Anny couldn’t get his anniversary straight and DNF couldn’t get FNG acronym straight.  Kinda John Doe’s fault apparently.

Mrs. Baker had this scary wheezing noise going on.  He made it through the workout, though!  sheesh 

Stay tuned – The Count is about to Q a TON coming up
