Mosey back to launch for COT


YHC almost ran into a gentleman and his dog on the way back down to the launch lot at 0615.  Pleasantries exchanged and continued on.  Said gentleman took an interest in our group and stood outside the circle while we did COT.  With a break in the announcements he asked, “Hey, Udder out here with you guys?  He said he would be out here working out this morning.”  We explained that he had a newborn at home and he appeared in the know.  Udder may have been preoccupied this morning. Congratulations to our brother Udder on the birth of his daughter.  Good intentions to get out thwarted, most likely, by the needs his baby, or a lack of sleep.  That is the first time YHC has seen someone try to track down an F3er at a workout.  Thought maybe we had a potential FNG on our hands.

Strong crew out today and hard work was completed by all.  Smurf Jacks and Imperial Squat Walkers drew some chatter.  Purple Haze asked YHC why he had looked at him while calling Smurf Jacks.  Unintentional, but, now that YHC ponders, may have been unconscious look for approval from the Sensei, as Haze was dubbed at Anvil Wednesday.  A fitting aka for Haze who has been a mentor to YHC and to many other F3 guys #leader.  Bout Time was Larry Bird on Palatine set with the PAX all displaying physical prowess and crushing this set.  More of the same as we moved through the AO.  Heavy on the burpees and merkins today as YHC tried to take the Joe Davis into consideration.  Hard to go easy on the run when the temps are semi-cold.  T-claps to Margo, Scabby, and Dear Abby who ran in and home from workout even though BOG offered them a lift home #strong.  Apologies to Abacus for the Q fail of skipping him in the name-o-rama.  Not enough O2 to the brain YHC supposes.  Great job out there today men.  A pleasure to lead a fine crew.  T-claps to Chelms aka Tater Tot for taking us out.

Ah the smurf jack has made it farther south.

I learned of the jack of smurfs up at the Ridge and took it to Outland. There was much rejoicing.

Hmmm. I wonder who that was. My dad lives over there but doesn’t have a dog. Another f3er lives nearby and has a little black dog. 3-alarm. Mysterious…

Pit bull – looked a little like Haze.

Someone give Scabby some sweat pants no matter how old – had to be better than shorts in sub 30 weather

The dog that is. The #stalker looked more like an older version of Cane.
