Awesome job by all this morning! Kudos to; Licorcycle for sporting a Ruck, FNG Vineyard (14YO) for hanging with the big dogs, and KB crew for doubling down. Some unlucky contestants toted Chelms aka Tater coupons. Mermaid and Madame Tussaud absolutely smoked the 13s on Palantine Hill. They probably looked even faster alongside YHC.
Mumble chatter and FEBA always positive feedback for a Q, glad you enjoyed the unlucky count on the hill –
Pusharama was an epic fail. I saw a guy doing this at a gym and wanted to steal it, but the Pax got all mixed up. #smokedbyPalantine Plan on seeing that, or similar version, again.
F3’s broad appeal was evident this morning by the 38 year range in ages from WB to WD. Keep spreading the word!

CSAUP Olympics tomorrow morning at South Charlotte Middle 0600
F3 Pool Party tomorrow night at Candlewyck Clubhouse and Pool 1800 hr
Not too early to start thinking Mud Run
RIBEYE has spots open for BRR
GoRuck Light benefiting Charlotte Bridge Home August 9. Check web site.

Great send off by Chelms/Tater. Thanks brother-

Pretty sure Mermaid and MT were using Dredd count this morning. They lapped me on the ladder (and I was a lap ahead of PH – WD takes back the crown). #somethingsmellsfishy

Mermaid won the Price Is Right contest and carried the bathroom tile while PH lost and had to carry the Centurion mascot/coupon. I promise I didn’t cheat PH, although I did forget to get a witness on that round. We can try to find an honest third party to conduct the contest next week. We are men of purpose so it shouldn’t be a problem.

Remember Chelms…you started before me on the hill, as I went back to grab the six. I’m unselfish and amazing in that way.

Solid Q Snowflake! The 13s on the hill were most unlucky…absolutely terrible in fact.

And Chelms, I was not surprised that I “chose” the wrong door and ended up with the paver…another in a long line of WD tricks. I have the Q in a couple of weeks…make sure you are there.

KB guys (and Udder’s bricks with a handle)…you are most welcome for the BellBivDevoe.

Hard Commit for your next Q at Centurion – #firewood (I may even bring some actual firewood – #oak)

Nice Q to lead us into the wknd Snowflake. PHill for 13s was beast. Glad my Pacos and margaritas didn’t make an appearance.

Having that happen right behind Cabo’s would not have been good for business…and no doubt would have killed some of the grass on Palatine. Way to battle through Brushback.

Strong lead today Snowflake, thank you. Bel Biv Devoe made me feel young, like our FNG, Vineyard. Good work out there young man. Got lucky for Chelms Price is Right and carried the little F3 tile. As for Palatine 13s, please note, Chelms, that MT is a CPA. He audited the count. You may have forgotten your count and done a round twice to fall so far behind. Or, we just smoked you. Either way, that was a beating and a good call from Snowflake. Great morning out there.

First, MT is a tax guy so not qualified to perform audit. Second, his job is to minimize the rate (probably pays the Romney rate) and look for loopholes. I think he found a few this morning and thus your “tax” fees probably will be going up since you won a Larry Bird this am. Or maybe you did smoke me. We’ll just have to find out next time.

You know…for 95% of the workout I don’t think Chelms even carried his brick. I know at one point during the Indian Run, I was carrying his brick and my paver. It is amazing what he gets away with…I am truly in awe. #WDWise

I think we need MT (even though he is a tax guy) to audit your 95%. I did notice you carried both pavers for about 15 seconds and I know that’s tough on you. However, I also noticed you conventiently never got the paver back pretty much after we did the ladder. Appears you are starting to learn from the master.

Mermaid, I passed on your comment to Vineyard, and it made his day.

Quick update – Vineyard has made two more workouts (Tuesday at Bagpipe and Thursday at Rebel Yell). I’ve offered him the chance to sleep in each time, and he refuses. Y’all started him off right.

Thanks to Liquor-Cycle for putting me and Vineyard in an Emotional Headlock and bringing us both to this workout. Thanks to all the PAX for supporting us in getting off the couch!

Nothing like getting smoked by the WD. Reminds me of my first couple of months in F3. Finally starting to keep up with Blackbird (often WD) and finding out at the COT he was wearing a weight vest. #humbling. Great Q Snowflake. Have to admit I called BS on the last minute trip to the Aquatic Center. FEBA

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
