8 PAX posted on a chilly yet beautiful morning here at The Ranch looking for a fight.  The nutrition challenge in full effect and got many PAX battling over food choices and ingredients.  What better way to bring everyone together than a good ol’ fashioned title bout.  Quick disclaimer and we were off…

MOLESKIN

  • Super hard work put in by all HIM today.  Love having to improvise and adapt for more PAX posting than expected, I’ll take that any day over a low turnout!!!  Great job by everyone in the relay races as well, chasing each other down and finding that higher gear to keep going.  A little friendly competition from time to time is always a fun way to push and motivate each other to reach the next level.  Quite a few bystanders today periodically looking in on us (with jealousy no doubt) as we get to have fun, gain strength and as always get a good laugh or 2 all for FREE!
