Awesome Weekend!

This past weekend was almost too much fun, and one of the best in recent memory.

First, we wrapped up the The Whole Life Challenge by retesting the preliminary workout we did in February. There were some evident jitters right before the start of the workout, but the tough Mergers were not phased. Nearly everyone improved on their workout scores, and it was a terrific validation and reward of all the hard work and discipline put into the Challenge.

Then on Sunday, many intrepid Mergers took on The Down and Dirty Mud Run! It was all about running, climbing, sloshing through the mud, and just having some good old fashion fun. The pictures pretty much say it all.

LC had her own strategy for the mud.

And your coaches had to represent the Merge tribe in the pull-up contest. Marianoel and I each placed second!
