Awesome gathering of 41 Pax for a new Charlotte South workout record on this convergence launch of The Rock and the 1 year anniversary of the launch of Area 51! Strong work by all Pax. It took all YHC had to keep going at a fast pace and not smoke myself too much while leading my group.
We hope that North Face delivered all much pain and lived up to its hype as the longest and steepest Jacobs Ladder Hill around. That hill is no joke and we will be utilizing it in various ways during the weeks to come. It is literally almost completly verticle at the top! It sounds like several Pax in each group slid down the hill (not by design). YHC was making my way down the hill just after McGee as his 5 Fingers monkey shoes came out from under him and he slid on his six for the last half of the hill. We know you are fast but don’t make it even harder for us to keep up with you!
Your QICs today wanted to make this workout tuff, but Hops took it to another level by having us do Mary on the asphalt parking lot. YHC is still trying to pull rocks out of my elbows and forearms! Speaking of Mary – APK noted that Austin Powers was working out with us when he turned his head to see Joker sans shirt. At least it wasn’t FB, another character from the movie!
T-Claps to our FNGs who came out for their first F3 experience. It was great having you out and we look forward to making #downPAINments in the gloom with you again soon (Skunk Works Tues, Death Valley Wed., and Devil’s Turn Thurs) – Just Sayin!
Also T-Claps to Big Bear who made half the Pax in YHC’s group look like we were standing still while running North Face and on the Indian Runs. Dude, you are comming on STRONG! Keep up the good work. Also T-Claps to Ray Charles who always finds a way to encourage all the pax on and will never leave a man behind.
Next Saturday both Charlotte South workouts will be going on simultaneously at 7:00 am, Area 51 at McKee Rd Elementary and The Rock at Calvary Church.
