    5/28/12: DNF, 3 Rounds + 33 Rx
    5/27/13: 51:21 Rx (Had 18 wall balls left at the 50 min cutoff, finished up when I saw the clock was still running.)

    MASSIVE improvement from last year. I think that has more to do with sitting out in the sun for 2 days straight at Regionals right before last year’s WOD than any strength and conditioning gains over the year. Still, feels good finishing it, that one had been haunting me for a year. I can put that crappy performance behind me now.

    Always the illest crew of people on these holiday WODs, people I never see on my normal schedule. Good to have my dude Joe Lask back in the mix too, been too long.
