29 High Impact Men converged on the Gilbert Water Tower to celebrate two years of curing sad clowns of lethargy and inertia. At 55 degrees it was a pleasant morning for throat punching mediocrity. Men from miles around came prepared to work.
YHC gathered the group at 0600 sharp, gave disclaimer and got after it.

Mosey a couple blocks through historic downtown toward a multi-level fun box
THETHANG: “CRAZY EIGHTS”
Starting on the first level, run the ramp to each switchback, doing various exercises in descending count from 8. (Those who fell behind took the stairs to catch back up). On the top deck there was some active recovery/stretching/planks and pretty sunrise pictures.

Mosey back to the water tower. Found shovel flags unassembled and moved (Farmer’s Market merchants had infiltrated AO). Several purveyors of fine organic produce and local knickknacks gracefully shared their reserved space while observing the conclusion of this beatdown.
- Flutter Kicks IC X 30
- LBC IC X 26
- American Hammers IC X 20
But there must have been something about Mary…. One (or more) civilians called the fuzz. Ranger Krupke abruptly entered the circle, one hand holding a bona fide park reservation to verify that we were indeed not on the list and the other on her pea shooter (just in case). YHC decided that was enough work for the day and gathered the PAX across the street for COT and another picture. Final thoughts were lost due to circumstances. Many gathered at Bergies for a little coffeteria.
