    *You DO NOT have to bring laundry detergent to participate in this beatdown.

Keeps coming back out because of the accountability factor. Brought his daughters to the 2.0 workout and two of them had never been sledding before. Thankful for this group and for opportunities like the 2.0 workouts. Announcements: All detergent will be donated to CSM/YWCA. CSM dinner service on Wednesday night. Prayers for Van Gogh and his new baby. For Mile High who wasn’t feeling well after the beatdown. For Flo. For military and first responders.

    Moleskin/Spreadsheet from the Gloom:
    • High 30’s, calm.
    • Could have taken the easy route and done this workout on pavement, but this is F3 so we did it in the snow!
    • Which made the playlist even more fitting as it was songs with the word “Summer” or “Sun” in the title.
    • Thanks to all the HIM who put in work today and donated to a great cause.
    • Honor to lead. Aye!
