Posted on

It was a brisk but beautiful Saturday morning in Chapel Hill, perfect for a keep-you-moving campus tour, especially with the original 2.0 on hand with his pops, OBT, for 2.0’s Admitted Students Day at Carolina.

YHC played Santa on this beautiful Chapel Hill winter morning, asking the PAX to share what exercises they wanted for Christmas. The requests made for an invigorating workout. *note- There was some irony as we headed into the gloom for a Christmas-themes workout that the Chosen People (Jews) outnumbered the gentiles 3.5 to 1.5, including […]
