    Oh, I think any exercise participant, whether control group, assessor, or training audience, can fully appreciate that. Though I’d have to say that ENDEX always sounded a hell of a lot better when I was training audience. Being in the training audience felt like I was going through a 18-20 hr/day freaking gauntlet of being yelled at (with occasional extra spittle enhancement), usually for doing something that I’d been told to do on the previous yellex. Being on the control side simply exhausting. And as a controller I rarely worked as long days as the poor training audience.

    With that said, congrats to making it to ENDEX. Enjoy your beer.
