It needs to be said that Taylor did his first ever RX’ed King Kong today and busted out a time of 6:17. He was the only person to do it prescribed. Well done, Taylor.

Secondly, I would like to introduce some more amazing Ktowners to the family. Hopefully you will welcome them too! Say “hola” to… Clint Sadler, Adam Shipley, Mike Lowry, Perry Taylor, Charlie Morgan, Tommy Kirby, Marly Maples, Kirsten Guilliams and anyone else who has recently joined that I have forgotten to mention here. If you aren’t listed it doesn’t mean you are any less important! We love you; it’s just that I have a bad memory.

Lastly I will end with this… we will be outside tomorrow so be on time and if you come early meet us around out back. Also, you may want to wear sunscreen?

Great job King Kongers,
<3 Coach Miss J

Mike's first run-in with squat cleans.

Jeanie has been rocking the pull-ups. Time to move to the blue?

    That needs to be Taylor’s new facebook profile pic.

  2. Taylor April 13, 2010 at 6:54 pm

    I want my facebook pic to represent who i am as a person. not make people poop their tighty whiteys.

    Also, congrats on your membership Kirsten! Now you don’t need Brandon any more…just kidding. This is for you and B-squared…

  3. Brandon April 13, 2010 at 7:07 pm

    That was amazing …

    PS Taylor you realize your current facebook picture has you laying on the floor like a little girl after a big scary WOD, right? Is that “who you are as a person” ?

    I still <3 you.

  4. Coach G April 13, 2010 at 7:08 pm

    Because of your bent elbows in that picture, Taylor, I can only guess that you’re doing a bent over row with that weight? T/F?

  5. Taylor April 13, 2010 at 7:46 pm

    Brandon: I’m very sensitive. Don’t judge me for that. Besides, the ladies love it.

    Grant: True.

    Ummmmm, I feel like I’m in the middle of a bromance battle.

  7. Kerr April 14, 2010 at 7:05 am

    Grant, Taylor is doing a Deadlift… he just can’t ever straighten his arms all the way for some reason. I have no idea why.

  8. Ben April 14, 2010 at 12:03 pm

    Are his arms bent or is everything else around him bending?

  9. Coach G April 14, 2010 at 4:29 pm

    Ben :
    Are his arms bent or is everything else around him bending?

    There is no spoon.

  10. Coach CBo April 14, 2010 at 4:51 pm

    Grant….that took me about 5 seconds to get it, but when I did it was awesome.

    … Oh, if you only all of you had seen this in person. It was fantastical.
