Moleskin:
  • Despite the sub-40 temp’s this morning, I think the PAX was Bolshoi-less (at least that’s how I want to remember it).
  • Not too much chatter from the PAX after about day 5…I’m sure O2 deprivation had something to do with that.
  • YHC seriously considered TR’s audible request to run a few more 100 yard dashes to make it a full mile.  Maybe next time, TR.
  • The “Protractor” was introduced to the CLT South PAX this morning and was met with many unsavory comments.  Radians vs. Degrees?  Measured from vertical or horizontal?
  • Header and Joker tried to induce eggnog spillage with their sprint races.
  • SC’s lesson learned – better instructions needed on wall plank and wall mountain climbers. 
  • There was consensus from the group to officially rename Wanker to Bulldog.  After seeing “the man formally known as Wanker” destroy the workout this am, what a fitting name!
  • Respect to The Shore, Stone Cold and 49er for wearing Ruck sacks.

Announcements:

  • F3 Christmas Convergence on Saturday, December 22 at Isotope (Charlotte North) – Bailey Road Park, 11536 Bailey Road, Cornelius, NC 28031. – 7:00 a.m.  Meet at 5:50 at the Rock for the S-CLT #ClownCars to the North Convergence.
  • For those who can’t make convergence, 0700 at Rock.  No A51 workout.  No Stonehenge recon.
  • Matrix workout on Monday, December 24 will operate on 1 hour delay…launch at 6:30.
  • Death Valley workout on Wednsday, December 26 will follow normal schedule…launch at 5:30.
  • Safe travels to everyone over the holidays.

It’s easy to get caught up in the stress of the holiday season.  I encourage everyone to remember that the Christmas season is not about presents, but rather being in His presence! 

Merry Christmas!

Nice work Stage Coach. Great to have you officially as a Charlotte South QIC for the pax. You lead well. Still say you Tarheels struggle with the math when it comes to the protractor and others…though you kept it together in the “12 Days”.
Funniest comment of the day was TR after the first 100-yard dash: “Joker was running like a kid just stole his lollipop.” Joker – you can flat out fly – impressive brother!

Yes someone did steal my lollipop on that first sprint. Only problem was I didn’t realize that the 12 days of Christmas meant I would be doing the same spring 11 more times. Needless to say, I paid the price.

Great job today Stage Coach.

And Wanker… or shall I say, “man formerly known as Wanker:… it’s going to take a long time to get used to calling you Bulldog. I was partial to the “Iron Lady” suggestion, but it just wouldn’t stick.

Great job this morning Stage Coach. You are a natural QIC. Remind me next time you are leading to wear my ice climbing spikes so that I can get some traction for the wall planks.

There may have been consensus, but there was NOT unanimity. Bloody rubbish on the name change, Winston, The Wankerless Bulldog. Our Q inadvertently nailed it: “formally” known as Wanker. Indeed.

Aye – will certainly miss waking up at 5am to be called Wanker! Many thanks go out to my Scottish mate Haggis. He showed that, despite many years of turmoil between our nations, peace can come at this time of year. I would have taken anything other than Wanker and can now display the F3 sticker with pride and actually tell my son my G rated nickname!
Stagecoach that was a great workout and you took the plank to a whole new level with the wall. Was just waiting for you to say “right arm up!”
Cheers, Bulldog

I’m scared to even ask where you got that video from.

The most interesting part of that to me was the female voice at the end asking him if he was “finished?”

Careful bulldog! Remember “Wanking Bulldog” was actually suggested. Don’t wan that one to stick. That video is certainly not something we need stuck in our head though!
Great job on the lead Stage Coach! The South Charlotte pax is growing strong with many strong leads from the newer guys over the last couple months. Keep it up brothers!
