Mole skin:

After a week of leg burning workout, the arms wanted some love. So to celebrate National Trail Mix Day- a trail of mixed merkins was put together to help balance the week. You know the workout is going well when grumbling starts 18 minutes in to the workout. (I know it was 18 minutes in because the exact amount of time was noted in the grumbles) Note: Crab walk the length of the basketball court- looooooooong walk.

Other note- X- factor brought some groans- rougher than expected. Total merkins 205 (215 if you count “reverse merkins”)

Chatter about our gathering Saturday and the glorious meats everyone is bringing excited everyone. Looking forward to fellowship with each other- just hoping our arms will be able to lift the food and beverage to our mouths!

Hoping after the holiday weekend the numbers pick back up!
