Fighting thru the gloom to focus on 2/20

Posted on

When Sweats put out the call yesterday that the Q Sheet had an opening, YHC jumped at the chance to lead the brave souls that came to #TheBigDance.  In thinking of a thematic approach to the Q Plan, the date 2/20 kept resonating.  YHC has been wanting to do a work out that was high […]

Stations of Pain

I was a bit nervous to Q the House of Pain, since it’s a larger site than I’ve ever Qed.  In order to bring something for everyone, I called a colleague that does F3 in Greensboro.  Poehler shared a BB with me from a Q he did in the summer.  After reading through it, there […]

Giving Back to The Big Dance
