Usain Bear

For the third Q of the week, YHC was greeted by 57 degrees and a slight chill in the air. Another beautiful morning in the Briar Chapel neighborhood. What more could you ask for in June? The PAX slowly gathered at a few minutes until time. With very little chatter, YHC called “circle up” as the Steve watch dictated and the workout started.
