Twitter actually does work

Man I was honored to see 18 Pax out there at Base Camp this morning, I think we had 8 or 10 the for my last Q out three. Someone said it was because I pre-tweeted out serving Lattes and S’mores but who cares, it was nice to see so many new faces and some old (sorry passport).

No Flag was planted, but YHC came in hot listing to something on Pandora that’s probably outlawed on many south charlotte middle school campuses, but I was ready to dish out some pain today and many men would attest I accomplished my mission.

Some thoughts/highlights:
-There was quite a bit of chatter, always makes the workout better.
-the base camp crew hung in there for all 5 mins, I think they were motivated by the question: what if I disobey RunStopper.
-you told us to grab a big rock, even chose Ed’s and then told him he might want to reconsider.
-Passport looks crazy in a balaclava but it was cold out there.
-I love that guys are contributing to #F3SoleRedemption, Insomniac and Crawlspace even donated the shoes off their feet. #Shakedown. Keep em coming boys.
Good Q Stopper.

Simba: That was absolutely the motivation for going the entire 5 minutes (and waiting until Stopper was looking the other way to adjust my sitting stance).

Great Q RS. Paying for it today. 5 minutes in the People’s Chair…quads are barking. Crushed up some Aleve in my coffee, and all is well.

Have a great week, all.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
