Hot Shots 19

I bought "smudge-proof" face paint for this beautiful back piece.  It was not WOD-proof.  Maddy's hard work dissolved quickly with my copious sweating during Hotshots 19 workout at Tough Temple.  I scaled the cleans to 73# (that's 114 reps) and used the blue band for pull-ups.  It took me 34:18, not bad for someone who turned 49 the next day.

Ian got some great action shots and the girls mistakenly thought it was going to take 99 minutes so they sat on the couch and played with their phones until the last round.

Nice face.  Note James Arnone in background still wearing shirt--must be early days.

The WOD was followed by a pig roast--Nathaniel and James dug a hole in front of the gym and caught a pig on fire.  I brought that ginger berry cake and a grain salad.  It rained on and off so no parades for us.  We spent the rest of the day binge-watching Master Chef and went to see the fireworks on the National Mall.
