We broke the workout down in groups of 25 reps per exercise, and made a valiant, yet unsuccessful, attempt to complete it, with tag-team of Brisket and Dos leading the exercises.

In the last quarter-hour, we moseyed from the AO to the West Windsor 9/11 Memorial, “Twin Ponds”, where we remembered the community residents who died 0n 9/11/2001: Jeffrey Chairnoff, Michael Cummingham, Peter Mardikian, Patrick Murphy, Edward Pykon, John Ryan, and David Suarez.

And those other individuals we know, whom we also remember on this day.  We honored the efforts of first responders in all capacities, and all the good efforts of volunteers to help their fellow brother or sister.

We closed the COT with a moment of silent tribute.

Countarama, Namearama, and the naming of the FNG. Welcome Mr. Motivator!

Honored to lead,

Dos Equis
