Gimme Shelter

Seven men left their dry fart sacks to sling some metal in the rain. Fortunately, site Q Voodoo suggested a move beneath the school bus loading shelter.  Nice call, Voodoo; wet kettle bell is no fun.

I’m telling you, boys, Voodoo is a beast. He lifted more weight with more reps than any of us — by a mile.  A beast.

It was good to see my running buddy Freon out there again. Keep up the good work, Freon, you’re looking stronger already.  Just don’t turn into a runner and leave me behind.

It was good to see Coco out there, too. His first post last Monday was in the bitter cold.  This one was in the rain.  Nice start!  Keep coming out.

Thanks for the chance to lead.

Thanks for the lead. It was a crusher. The tunes were solid, too (except for Rush).

Thanks for stepping up to lead on short notice, Loogie. It was brutally simple and kept us out of the rain. Hopefully my calluses will heal up before my next lifting workout or they’re all coming off. And thanks for the words of encouragement in the backblast. There are so many strong guys in F3, it’s a real compliment. It wouldn’t be possible without the push from the PAX to post and work hard week after week. See everyone next week at the ‘hole.
