On Tuesday, September 17, 2013, YHC finally got out of the fartsack after months of being in an emotional headlock, first by my 1.0, Nails (Columbia), then by my co-worker, Housekeeping (CLT South). I looked at the schedule, found something relatively close to Beverly Woods East, and drove north to the Christ Church parking lot at about 0525 for a workout called the Ring Run.
Not sure who all was there, or even who the Q was. I think it might have been Ben Franklin, because at 0530, he just took off running out of the parking lot without saying a word. BF, do you remember naming someone after a Hispanic housemaid? No backblast of this event has ever been recorded. I’m pretty sure Rock was there. We took a nice jog around Myers Park at a pace that was unfamiliar to me (<7:00) and stopped a few times to do “merkins” and “LBCs”. The good news is I never had to plank to wait for the 6, because I was the 6 the entire time. #memories. Thanks to all the Charlotte pax that sharpened me during my time there, and for the Swamp Rabbit pax for accepting me in and continuing to push me.
So this morning, 366 days later, 15 fine young cannibals met at the Peace Center and at 0530, YHC took off running without saying a word…

Ye Olde Moleskine:
Great work from the pax today. Hopefully it was sneaky hard in that all the reps added up to some real muscle-building. Awesome effort from Double Windsor today. I think you’re WD, but I wasn’t paying attention to the ages #mybad #O2deprivation.
During one of the “plank and wait” sessions, we waited in the form of a Rosalita as a tribute to Pedialyte whose M just had their 2.4. Congrats, can’t wait to meet him. See you at Crucible tomorrow? #You’llBeUpAnywayMightAsWellPost
Really good to see Erector out there.
Screech got in about 20 burpees of extra credit with the #EarlyEdition pax this morning, and YHC put a down payment of 40 burpees on what I owe Earthmover. I’ll do the extra 10 when I see you.
Announcements: F3 Connect is TODAY at 1130 at Fried Green Tomatoes. F3 Anderson launches 10/18. Mab Mab is working on setting up a Men’s Roundtable this fall, be on the lookout (3rdF workout), YHC has heard great things about it. Hootie’s manager is having his knee replaced and is need of prayer.
