It’s February – Spring Training’s begun.

The VSF was planted or maybe High Tide planted an actual SF…didn’t really notice?  Nevertheless, 14 fartsack forsakers took to the OP campus for another weekly Ascent.  Come to think of it, it’s probably the flattest AO other than perhaps McKee Elem.  YHC is rambling…on to the Thang.

Great effort by the pax.  Great to see Tank back out among the pax and Kotters also to Far Side who’s coming off the IR.  The pax rightly called out YHC when I failed to do a H-R merkin to start the work on the ballfield. #accountability

Strange Brew was leading the pax a good bit and doubling down = strong.

Before we started, Relo was relieved to see Hoffa pull in last and remarked that he avoided the LIFO tag.

Keep pushing yourselves men.  It was great to Q this solid group of men.


Still time to commit to BRR – contact Baracus.  Some of the best 2nd F in all of F3.

Nomad Run Sunday 0600 – launches at ABC lot at Arboretum.

USMC Mud Run April 12 – HighTide needs someone to take his spot.  480 of F3Nation are signed up for this – come join us!  It’s a blast.
