2nd Lt. Williams, USMC (a.k.a. “Torch”):

Lenny experiences last-minute jitters at Sectionals that can only be relieved by a Snuggie blanket and sunglasses:


  • Hari

    Congratulations, Lieutenent!

  • Hari

    (It’s so much easier to spell ‘Captain’ and ‘Major’)

    Ugh. So I have totally failed to find a way to sectionals tomorrow.
    Jacinto – if you read this, I attempted to e-mail you on Wednesday, but I spelled your e-mail address wrong. If anyone is riding with Jacinto and knows if there is still space, let me know. I am tempted to show up at the box at 5:45, but I’m not even sure anyone else took him up on the offer.
    The train doesn’t run till 8am, and I wanted to get there early to be as helpful as possible. If anyone reads this and has space in a car, please let me know!

    Got here at Sectionals, but wanted to give a heads up to anyone planning to come watch. Dress warmly! Today’s WOD’s are outside and it’s chilly!

    Lieutenant, Torch!
    Well done, my friend, well done.
    The Corps is lucky to have you. I expect to be hearing great things about Candidate Men’s Health…

    Apparently, the penalty for stepping up on the box is 9 or 10 minutes.

  • Emily

    So Grace C and I are planning on heading out tomorrow morning for the final WOD. is anyone else heading out there? Anyone driving with room for two, by chance? We’re currently trying to figure out the best way to get there by train, but if anyone has room in their car I would definitely pitch in some gas money.
