Its warm in the Foxhole

11 men decided 25 degree weather and the fellowship of their F3 brothers trumped the fartsack and headed into the Foxhole this morning for the perfect start to a Holiday week.

Take it back home for COT 


– With the cold weather, comes the interesting gear.  Mighty Mite may need a rename to candy striper after the tights he wore out there today.  He also donned a ski hat complete with tassels.  He definitely wins most unique cold weather gear.

– Today’s workout was a tough one.  Half way through, YHC realized there must have been some pent up aggression when this workout was being planned last night.  The 2-arm military presses and Merkin rows were particularly painful (and that is with a mercy audible).  Loogie said next time he would buy me a 6-pack to ease up a bit with the planning. Aye!

– The boot camp guys from Sports Connection haven’t been seen in a while.  I guess with the $40 per month fee, you get heat and A/C included.  For my money, YHC will be right here with my F3 brothers in the glorious (and frigid) early morning gloom!

Great work by all and have a great holiday week with family and friends!

HB promised on Twitter that regardless of the temperature, the workout at Foxhole would warm us up and he was right!

The peppermint tights will be making more appearances around Area 51 if this frigid weather continues.
