Great turnout today.  And the humidity did not disappoint.  Cooler temps are great, but 98% humidity still makes it tough to breath.

This was YHC’s second post since the world went crazy and it was much needed to have such a great group of guys join YHC – YHC has missed the gloom more than realized.

Everyone was getting after it today.  Found out that not only can Snuka run for days, but for an old guy he is pretty fast.  Lorax is crazy fast and was making the hill sprints look too easy – YHC may be a weight vest for him next time.

YHC was impressed by how hard everyone was working on the hill sprints – no sand baggers today.  They are sneaky hard and you may be feeling them later.  You are welcome.

And thanks to the boys in blue who decided to provide extra incentive to the workout with the threat to arrest anyone who was last.  Not sure if they knew someone or were just use to seeing the F3 crowd around campus.  Nice to know they do appreciate what we do.

Welcome FNG Mayday – the workouts won’t get easier but you will get better.  Keep coming out.

Thanks again men for allowing YHC to lead you around in the gloom this am.  It is both an honor and privilege.   Thanks Mermaid and Margo for asking and for your leadership.

Hops – thanks for the great takeout – saying things we are all thinking and need to hear.


Nothing to report – probably can start signing up for the Christmas Party soon or something.


Stay Safe

Champagne Out.

one correction and a few comments:
* Semi-gloss was, in fact, sandbagging on the hill sprints #trifusenik
* Butt-kickers for Lorax and Bout Time are their normal running gaits…
* Tagalong’s beard is fast

I like Tagalong’s beard for a name. Another could be TBL, short for Terminal Beard Length. Fairly certain he’s hit the terminus for length. Could be wrong though.

I put the pedal down to the floor on a few runs today. Haven’t gone full bore run in a few years. The wind felt nice. I may need help standing up from a seated position later on today. Walking may be out of the question.

Don’t think the Q got angry today. He did make a few form comments about squats #formpolice. Great morning out there with a solid group. Thanks for leading Champagne.

Impressed to see Centurion numbers back over 20. Sorry to miss Champagne return but looks like I picked a good day to miss (no time for a nap today).

We still have not seen Snooka’s birth certificate and pretty sure he uses something to make his hair look greyer.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
