Figured on a smaller crew today with mid-20s temp. Not the case as 20 men arrived ready to crush a Friday morning at Centurion. Utah, Scabby, and Ickey ran in. Nice work men. Purell planned to arrive early and pre-run, but was sidetracked by one of his kiddos. He needs more than 45 to get his morning fix. Always fun to try and give chase. Well, fun and defeating at the same time. Have to remember, the way to get faster is to run with faster men. Lorax, Brilleaux, and Snuka chased hard. Yogi, Chelms, Scabby in the mix near the front as well. All pax pushed on this one.

YHC decided a long time ago that weather would not dictate F3 posts. The only exception is extremely hazardous conditions. Only once in almost 6 years has weather prevented a post. Icy conditions prevailed during a period when there was no 4WD vehicle in the garage.

Adverse weather conditions have proved to provide the most memorable F3 posts for YHC. Tough weather brings another level of sensory stimulation to the mix. Don’t let weather be an excuse to getting better. Smack it in the face while you are crushing your workout. Better for it.

Always an honor to lead the PAX through these workouts. Well done today men. Solid work to start the day. T-claps to Haze for doing the Plank Jacks, and, more importantly, for the takeout prayer.
