GORUCK Taper – Stonehenge Style

On this snow/rain filled soggy morning, 12 brave pax gave the Heisman to the fartsack and headed into the gloom at Stonehenge. For Haggis and I, this would serve as our GORUCK taper since we neglected to secure substitute Q’s for today ahead of the Challenge tonight. Despite our mental lapse, the pax all worked hard and got a great start to their day.

– Welcome to FNG Shannon Schauber (F3 Cobbler). All the pax did a great job today and were fairly quiet.
– YHC admittedly tailored his portion of the workout to avoid merkins, etc. ahead of tonight’s activities. #notwimpybutsmart
– Bratwurst once again showed his speed even though he wasn’t running very fast in his eyes. Strong work brother!

– If doing mud run, pay the transportation money. Check website for details.
– Today is last day to order 2013 F3 race jersey for delivery before Spartan race. Go to website and place your order.
– Think of F3 Nation pax doing the GORUCK Challenge tonight. Iron will definitely sharpen iron and I can already hear thundering footsteps.

Have a great day,
