Could anyone tell how much This fool had to drink the nights before the competition?

I know for sure his time was lagging because of it.

Lance, just wanted to thank you for your work at the GSX Level 1 Cert Saturday and Sunday. I don't know how it happened that we were blessed with such accomplished, humble and tireless coaches. It was amazing. As someone posted on the main site, the only thing better would have been to make it longer. And with more WODs of course! God bless!
