QIC: no-ski
PAX POSTED: no-ski, dba, dillio

3 PAX posted for the weekend edition of beatdown at #TheRanch. It was super humid today in Lutz. @dba was an early bird and was moving around and stretching way before any of the other PAX showed up.

YHC on Q today. Today’s beatdown was another prep run for the Tough Mudder. YHC included some Army Crawls to get taste of whats to come.
