Image result for sweating gif

QIC: Noxeema Jackson (Solo VQ); PAX: Trump, Wham!, Grinder, Nugget, Cowbell, Left Eye, Sump Pump, Old Bay, Glen Ross, Snowman, Vincent, Porkchop, Curly, Zima (and an ineligible Zoolander bowtie drive-by appearance)

Conditions: 82 Degrees & Soupy

I’ve done a Co-Q with Wham! during VQ week at Norton Commons, but this was my first Solo Q and first Q at the Mutt in general.  Having witnessed Old Bay oversleeping a few weeks ago, I basically didn’t sleep from 3:45am-4:30am in fear of missing it, but my house’s AC is still busted so I was up and angry for a beat (or sweat) down at the Blender.  Theme of the day was to keep moving non-stop, and hard running in between all spots throughout the Mutt.  16 PAX came, ran and got better…
