Naked Moleskin:

1) Geat work today by all (especially the FNGs) as this was not an easy workout.  Strange Brew and Purple People Eater, you have taken the hardest step which is posting to your first F3 workout.  It does get easier and we hope to see you again soon in the gloom.  Strange Brew, we hope you aren’t too sore and left some gas in the tank for your hockey game tonight!

2) #FeedingTheBirds – YHC and Run Stopper have finally arrived on our second official Q at The Rock as Purple People Eater spilled some merlot as he stumbled from the kitty litter.  No shame in that as this was your first F3 workout and it was a smokefest, yet now we are official!

3) During the backstop obstacle climb several of us with wide feet, YHC included, couldn’t fit our toes into the diamond holes of the fence, but the other half were able to scamper up quickly.  The problem for Bug Eater was as he was going over the top, his foot sliped and the family jewels were racked on the top pole.  Great recovery brother, and way to finish out the second half of the workout strong!

4) While barking out the instructions for the sand suicides, Run Stopper became tongue tied several times in a row trying to spit out the same thing.  First it was “What goes out, comes back, you know!”  After several other attempts and not being able to say what goes up must come down, Run Stopper says “You know, just go both ways!”  Brother, we never want to hear those words come out of your mouth again!

5) We missed our Rock brothers Hops, Ray Charles, Pretty Boy Quarterback, and Jamboree as they took the Ms to the beach for a little sun and fun.  However, it was nice to see you boys put down the fruity drinks with the umbrellas for an hour this morning to put in a downPAINment on the day.  Nice backblast boys, looks STRONG, very STRONG!  Check out The Balding Nub backblast.
