47 Men planted the shovel flag at #TheMainThang to ring in the New Year. What better way to celebrate than with 47 of your best friends. YHC thought they were all at the Peace Center to see me. Turns out, they heard a celebrity was planning to post….the one, the only……. One Direction

One D

YHC was expecting around 30 or so to post. When the PAX just kept coming, I knew I’d have to #audible my workout plan. I even had to #audible the warmup #goodproblemtohave

Thanks to @JoeyVarin (JV) in Charleston for this version of a bent Jacob’s Ladder. It’s a #smoker due to the short recovery time

Naked Moleskin:
– Awesome to see so many guys post and get the year started out right. Now don’t fall victim to #sadclownsyndrome as the temps get colder
– So YHC was challenged to Q this #Convergence by @Flay. He said soemthing like “If you Q you can’t #fartsack”. Challenge accepted. And therein lies one of the core principles of F3 – accountability. Amazing how that changes your thinking and actions – in a good way
– With the new year comes resolutions – we’ve heard or uttered them all. The 2015 resolution for F3 Swamp Rabbit is community #IMPACT. We’ve done a good job with this in our almost 2 yrs of existence. But we’re raising the bar. Be on the lookout for ways you can do your part to make an #IMPACT.
