COT

Moleskin

Unlike Captain Shackleford’s fateful expedition, there was no chance that the F3 PAX would succumb to frost bite. Our invigorating expedition provided us with the thermal inertia necessary to withstand the not so harsh environmental conditions.

During our journey to the field one PAX was overheard to say, “Just keep running past Grand Mother.” YHC’s Reply: “Not a chance! We’ll be back to see her soon enough.” A lively COP got us underway. The 5 x 5 bear crawl (crowd pleaser) for 50 yards set the tone for events to come. The brisk work schedule on Grand Mother Mtn didn’t disappoint. Upon our return to the field the PAX became familiar with the Pushmi-Pullyu. Thank you @F3_Gump for teaching YCH how to spot the elusive Pushmi-Pullyu in the gloom.

YHC thanks the PAX for the opportunity to lead this AM.

Looked like a painful morning. Nice work. Jump squats before running up the bleachers…at the end of the workout?! Diabolical. Love it!
