Log Moving Day Quickly Changed to a SPEARHEAD


6 Men came out early to the new AO to help gather more logs so that we could have a pile up at Boyce Park that we could use anytime for Log Rucks and Log PT.  Team Lead was overly excited btw about having our own pile of heavy trees to carry (more on that later)…but all that changed last night when we got an email from our first FNG to SPEARHEAD’s new AO saying that he’d like to come and check out what we do.  So without heistation, Team Lead Shawn Kelly aka. The Hoff, and Rick Tanner aka Bob the Builder, began texting (like a couple of teenage girls) with ideas on how to structure the workout for today.

Excellent work out there today.  You killed it!  As being in Taper mode it was really nice to see the workout from a different perspective.  Its eye-opening to be in the position I was in today;  to dish out the pain and see such strong men accomplish what you did was amazing.  The best moment for me was to see the team come together during the Shimmy Shim  Shim.  Dora commanded his leadership with his experience in log PT which paid off well.  What was seen as an impossible task was quickly a reality.  Without any complaints, the team came together and simply did the work.

Cobra – Great seeing you out there and I hope you liked what we are all about.  You fit right in and we welcome you anytime you’d like to train.

BTB is on a mission to be the fastest big man alive.  This guy can move!  Clueless was not clueless at all, and Angler moved better than a lot of men I’ve seen 1/3 his age.

As always, it is an honor to lead you today and your efforts were exceptional.

Respectfully, The Hoff aka Shawn Kelly
