🎶 On the First Day of (F3) Christmas, my Q gave to me 🎶

Buddy the Elf, I mean YHC showed up shortly before 0500 for prerun with Alpaca-onesie to boot. Cooter greeted me with a smirk, Black Beard emerged from the minivan, Kirby from the Camry and we were off into the gloom with the wind in our hair. Pretty sure we ran 3 miles but the watch only said 2. Those were some long miles.

Wardrobe change for the main event. Cooter kicked us off with the reminder to social distance. I modified the disclaimer with a pronouncement of wealth upon all gathered and off we went. As @Rousey would say “we got shit to do”

The Moleskine

  • @Elsa, you crushed the workout my man. It was great to see you out again since Turkey Jam
  • @Kirby and @Frehley’s you keep me laughing throughout the pain. Whether it’s a well-timed “that’s what she said” or giving me a hard time for making you carry my poop wipes, you’re  hilarious
  • @Black Beard, I enjoyed getting to chat more during the pre-run this morning and sharing our disdain for dirty snow
  • @Cooter, thanks for the opportunity to lead. I looked forward to this workout and knew it would be a special one to ring in December.
  • @Loogie, I’ll never forget you showing up to Bagpipe a few months ago in 50 degree weather with the same amount of layers that you were wearing this morning. You’ve got a quiet strength to you, rolling with the punches and dishing them right back out
  • @Mighty Mite, you’re a huge part of why I kept coming out to workouts after my first few Saturdays at Da Vinci. I’m following your example and welcoming other FNG’s into the fold – respect
  • @Sweetwater, almost didn’t recognize you with the beanie. Not sure I’ve ever seen you really break a sweat or be out of breath. Are you a machine?
  • @Rousey, your energy is contagious. Something about those grunts that really brings out the best in a man
  • @Tagalong, you sliced through today’s work and led the pack! You’re sneaky like a ninja. With a beard. The bearded ninja.
  • Shoutout to @LaZboy for a similar workout this morning at Hawk’s Nest. Great minds think alike
  • It’s almost been a year since I made it out to my first F3 workout.
  • Grateful for the brothers and friends that I’ve made.
  • Grateful for each one of you

Merry Christmas ya filthy animals
