    Gabe, What do you mean we don't eat cookies? Pretty sure I saw Mike Kelley eating a cookie in an alley at 2am last night. I tried to talk some paleo-sense into him, but he cut me with a bottle.

    I just want to thank Mike leading the mobility wod and the lacrosse ball. The WOD reminded me of the modest mouse song "The Good Times are Killing Me". Also, Gabe do you know what girlscout cookies have the coconut in them.

    Jed, I think the samoas are what you're thinking of. And you're welcome for the lacrosse ball love.

    I worked up to my 1RM of 155 lb on the jerk. While I didn't surpass by 1RM, my reps at the heavier weight felt better than they used to. That's progress, I guess. 10:28, Rx on the metcon. It was a rough one but the deads killed me. Thanks to Mike for causing everyone plenty of suffering with the lacrosse balls.

    Gabe, if you see this in time, put me down for a box of thin mints. If not, fate has intervened to prevent me from getting fat(ter)...

    Hey Gabe - If you see this, put me down for one box of thin mints and one box of the cookies with lemon icing, whatever they're called.
  11. Mike K Reply
    Jeff - Lemonades are shortbread with a layer of lemon icing. There's also another sandwich cookie that has lemon icing in the middle...not sure of the name. I know too much about girl scout cookies...
