19 PAX defied the warm comfort of the fartsack, the threat of Hurricane Irma, and basic common sense by showing up for a tribute to 9/11.  Inspiring to say the least.  PAX began to gather in the normal inclement weather spot under the awning while basking in the soft glow of the displays lights from the lingerie shop.  Unfortunately, the only difference between the fair weather workout plan and inclement weather workout plan was the actual workout plan was placed in a waterproof bag.

Weather: moderate rain.  Winds 5-20 mph out of the northeast, west, south.  Threatening enough for mass school cancellations, but not even close to cancel a gathering of HIM.  Conditions were essentially a Weirdo’s Paradise.

F3 Mission: Almost nailed it.  More like a staple gun.

Disclosure: After almost 2 years with F3, still not even close to being a professional.
