YHC got pulled out of the bullpen from 02/06 Q to fill in today at Bagpipe.  Life happens and we step up to fill the need.  Heavy rain last night drove numbers down at Bagpipe.  Or maybe it was YHC.  Either way, fartsackers missed out on a damn near perfect conditions today.  58 degrees and a nice breeze at times.  No rain, although it would have been more than welcomed by YHC if it had continued.  Favorite conditions are 55 and rain.  Would take it every morning.

Warm welcome to Heisenberg from Cape Fear.  Great to meet him and have him along side us today.  YHC asked him a few obligatory questions, like how long had he done F3.  June of 2014.  Not a rookie.  We knew that though from the outset as he was proudly representing his region with his shirt.  Second, asked him if he could share the F3 mission with the group.  He needed just a few moments to dig into the grey matter on it, then produced it for the group.  Thanks for that Heisenberg, and good work today.  Hope to see you at another workout or race soon.

Fire Hazard did some pre-running and still managed to get out front on most of the runs.  Bucky, Tagalong, Morning After showed some speed, as did Teddy, Wild Turkey, and Fredo.  Well done men.  Kotters to Brisket, or maybe not.  YHC hasn’t seen him in a while.  Good work out there.

We covered 2.3 miles, worked the legs and core some, and got 260 merkins completed for the men completing the Merkin/Pull-up Challenge.  10 extra for good measure.  Now you have only 40 pull-ups and done for the day.  Keep up the good work on that.

Enjoyed the morning down in SOB.  Always do.  Had been a while since last Bapipe Q.  Thanks for the invite from Tagalong.  YHC took us out in prayer.
