The threat of thunderstorm didn’t stop 8 of us from getting together for a muggy boot camp at Thrive. As the Q, I wasn’t sure about the F3 lightning policy. I assumed it was something like, “Getting struck by lighting builds character/fuses your testicles into brass/etc.” I was actually informed that lightning is the only legitimate reason to cancel a workout. (I was a little disappointed to hear that… I guess even F3 has limits on crazy.) Ultimately, this never came up as the little green blobs on the satellite passed us by without incident.

What’s there to say? We ran, we jumped, we squatted, we pushed/sat up. On a morning where the humidity had to be at least 90%, we each sweated out the equivalent of a 7-11 Big Gulp. It was nice to have Senor Frog out for his first visit to Thrive. Hope he joins again.

Also, today was my final day working out with you guys. My family is relocating to Cary next week, so I’ll be F3-ing up there from now on. I’ve enjoyed the workouts and the fellowship. Mumblechatter at Thrive is indeed second to none (That’s what she said…)
