  • Perfect weather today for a classic bootcamp/run beatdown
  • You know its getting bad when we start sponsoring workouts at the local home improvement stores.  Next time we’ll take the workout inside.  Lots of heavy stuff to lift and carry around, plus we could use the carts and practice Speed4Need as a bonus.
  • Mea culpa on the epic Q fail, losing 3 pax (including a site Q)  en route to the hardware store.  Sorry men, somehow we lost you when we turned in the lot.  Glad we caught back up with you on McKee.
  • Lots of mumblechatter in COP, couldn’t seem to shake it, even with a few rounds of pull-ups and burpees.
  • Strong performance by all, laying out 4+ miles plus some classic bootcamp ladders and shuttles thrown in for good measure
  • Thanks to Huggie Bear for the opportunity to lead the Original #Area51 workout


F3 Area 51 Christmas Party, Dec 8, 7:30pm, Seaboard.  See pre-blast and sign-up.
