-After getting called out by Bugeater in last weeks backblast for not posting or Q’ing Hydra since Halloween YHC started to feel a little guilty about taking an almost 4 month hiatus from F3. Hey we all need a little break every now and then! Plus YHC is not the least bit embarrassed to admit that I now hate bitter cold mornings more than ever….Thanks to last year’s SnowRuck! But it was after I completed my first of 10 not planned burpees on your own that I then remembered why we all come out in numbers at 0530. The feeling of being back was awesome! #fearthewhistle
-Not much chatter from the Pax as the constant motion kept conversation to a minimun.
-Greyhound is a stud! 74 years old… are you kidding me!! Give this guy F3 legacy status or something!
-Thanks to whoever directed the way through the nature trail (I think it was Mall Cop).
-It was an honor leading you guys. Thanks for reminding me why am part of F3.
