Fortunately, it’s become something I just do like going to work or walking the dogs. It helps that Fraser (my hubby) also goes to CFR; he’s generally sore, as well, so we compare discomfort levels.

    In case anyone else was wondering:

    twonk – “Derogitary term, roughly equivalent to idiot. More insulting than berk, but less insulting that gimp.”

    Apparently it’s synonymous with “a silly sausage”.

    Jennifer!!! Love the pix…. and I guess I am the last to know that Fraser is your hubby!!!! We’ve only worked out every week together…. details details. You must have thought I was crazy during the scavenger hunt!!!! it’s all coming back to me now…..

    Some day we will do Angie together with no bands…. can’t wait!

  • Mollly

    I love the picture too! I think it’s cute, and I don’t think you look like twonks. Thanks for the clarification on the meaning, Shane. haha

  • Emily

    Love the picture too! Plus, I think Ryan should get a shout out for coming up with the cool nickname of “J-Ro”

  • Olivia

    J-Ro is one of the most badass girls we got… she claims Oly “scares her to death” yet she is there EVERY week and rockin it too!
    I also hear shes a superb mtn biker… Not to mention the wittiest person on the block!
    You go girlllll!!!!

  • fraser

    J-Ro is indeed bad ass, (mainly because she puts up with me!) Shane thanks for clearing up what a Twonk is, there are many other definitions out there. The pic is taken in front of a cabin in Southern Sweden that was very cool. See how flexible we are !!. Ask me sometime why a two year old got us to run around like that. Our furs are not coats but two Cattle Dog mixes named Tex and JJ that need to be out and about a lot. You may have met them at the shop on Saturday mornings.

  • Nicole

    After all of this week’s good mornings and hip extensions, in this picture it looks like you guys were practicing them in Southern Sweden, which warms my heart:)
