Lots of Grunting in the Gloom

29 of the faithful came out in the Gloom and light rain.  Death Valley is known to have puddles on the track and a waterlogged football field, but those didnt make the Pax fartsack this morning.

It was great to see so many of the Pax out this morning.  And a special welcome to M who got his name when he told us of his 5 yrs in the Army as an Intelligence Officer.  Psycho T also made a cameo appearance.    Hope you will join us down South some more, brother.

Right before we started our first 400, QHC was asked by one of the Pax “how many laps are we doing?”  QHC’s reply: “That’s for me to know and you guys to find out.”  In all seriousness, though, that’s one of the great things about F3.  When you aren’t leading, the challenge of the workouts are heightened when we dont know what the Q is going to do next.

After the 3rd 400, TR was overhead complaining about the asymmetrical nature of doing three 400’s instead of four.   Just trying to throw off  that brilliant engineering mind of yours TR.

During the suicides, QHC couldn’t believe how fast Haggis was.  He has either been sandbagging since he first started coming to F3, or he’s been running while dragging a bunch of his stones.  In either case, great job today, Haggis.  You smoked.
