-YHC has yet to spill merlot at F3, but came close on 2 occasions.  One at YHC’s earlier postings at FT, Haze was there.  Two, upon the first time YHC encountered Hairburners.  YHC has loved them ever since.  As soon as Spackler asked me to Q, this had been brewing for a week.

-YHC wonder how many of the PAX would have preferred Hairburners to Jacob’s Ladder.  Spackler, said he would have take then plates.  Alf, however, noted that the hill we did was nothing.  No hill intimidates him after the BRR.

-Strawberry must be the adventurous/curious type.  He could not resist failing to choose the unknown/surprise workout, even if it happened to be worse than hair burners.  However, the suck factor was most likely comparable.

– Tclaps to Pulled Pork, Alf, Morning After.  Pushing it hard today.  Pulled Pork was blazing on the hariburners.  His two team mates should take him to lunch, he saved them time on the plates.

– Others might have been pushing it hard out there, but YHC was too busy planning on the fly to practice good observation skills.

– YHC has met Pulled Pork, Rump Roast, and Brisket but just realized as I was entering the names into the PAX list the BBQ/meat connection.  YHC is very curious to the etymology of these handles/monikers.  You guys run a BBQ joint?  How did that go down?



-Need a RY regular to step up and help with shoe donations.

-Give an older pair of sneaks to an F3 site workout to distribute to Charlotte Rescue Mission

-Don’t Waste Your Life.
