    Great WOD, Juan – you are a machine. Was fun going up against C-Note and Ian.

    Quarter Kelly. No idea on time, as it was the last thing on my mind at the finish. Thanks to Mad Money for the coaching on fundamentals.
    Weazy, not sure I agree with the assessment that a WOD is like middle school gym class. In fact, I completely disagree.

  7. Wheezy

    Jason: Well, obviously a WOD is way more intense than middle school gym class and I am WAY out of shape for the WOD. But, to me it is still fun. Just like in life, I am only doing because it is fun. Thats the same reason why I build computers, do photography, work on my cars, and watch my daschund battle it out with the house cat.
    I can also say this, all those squats I’ve been doing have made my clutch feel much lighter and rotating my tires much, MUCH faster since I only have one 2-ton floor jack.
    Why did you join?

  8. Heatherd

    I noticed the Memorial Park 5K announcement is off the website-is there still a group getting together for this?

  9. jason

    Wheezy, I apologize. I meant that not in a jerk way, but rather in a “This 1/4 of a WOD is damn hard” sort of way.

  10. Noel G (Wheezy)

    Jason: Ah, that’s my bad. I should have read your comment out loud to get the tone of conversation. I jumped the gun on that one. But then again, I was in the garage with the car and so it would’ve looked creepy “talking to myself” with a tire iron in hand.
    Today was my worst ever. I managed the Thursday WOD and barely got by during my baseline, but today…….sheesh! Next time I am coming with a paper bag handy.
    But you and the other guys will be my pacers, eventually I’ll reach your times, of course, by then you’ll have faster times to which I’ll have another goal to reach too!

    Great job newbies! Way to push hard! It’s the way to be to get quality coaching from us in a non-WOD environment.
    Wheezy and Jason D, nice blogging going on a Saturday night! Jason, not sure about Mad Money but that’s sounds like a good additional alter ego for BB2.
    HeatherD, April will be there at 8am. Btw, thanks for the hotel info. We’ve made a room reservation with one of those blocked rooms.
    Pix N Vids has been recently updated, thanks to Gatekeeper. Nice shots, Dennis! Tonight, I am uploading quite a bit more from January.

    There are parts of Jim’s delivery that are dead on Jim Cramer-esque (the Host of Mad Money). It’s uncanny.

    Hmmm…..after watching a couple of Youtube videos, Jason is right.
