So first, this was supposed to be a FNG-friendly workout as we had several new members of the Pax who joined us as FNG’s yesterday at the workout led by Dredd and Swiper. Dredd had asked us to keep the intensity to a moderate level, but Sauerkraut was having none of that. In fact, at lunch he kept defending himself with the line, “That’s nothing compared to what we do at Bastion.” Yeah, probably true, but the Blue Ridge Assembly site is essentially one big hill with almost no level ground and at altitude higher than most of us flatlanders are used to, Kraut.
Of course, it didn’t help that after hearing what YHC had planned for the first half of the workout, that Kraut had to call an audible and change his attack plan 5 minutes before launch. So Kraut ran the pax around, and around, and around, and around, the Assembly site trying to find the ideal locations for his doses of #downPainment.
T-claps to Hercules, a 60+ year old former flight surgeon who flew on the C-130.
And t-claps to all the JFG guys who had never been to an F3 workout until this weekend. We hope that you got a good taste of what has the rest of us so addicted. We look forward to seeing you guys in the Gloom!
And special t-claps to Davis “The Lizard” Kuykendall, Ken Schultz, and Chip Cash with Search Ministries for inviting us to Search’s 2013 Bootcamp. It was a great blessing to be amongst so many awesome men of God – young and old.
