Spring is definitely fast approaching. With that, the weather gets a little iffy, but at F3, we always go to one of our key principles: OUTDOORS, RAIN OR SHINE! Spring also signals the need to shed that extra insulation, so YHC brought the funk to ensure that we could dance between the rain drops while dropping the junk in the trunk…….and by funk, we’re talking 40 feet of fried fish with onions and sardines on the side….now that’s FUNKY!
As the monsoon started (along with the lightning), gave a quick disclaimer and moseyed to a little bit of cover at the Regal. Warmed up with….
Imperial Walkers (10)
Moroccan Night Clubs (12)
Mosey to the overhang on the opposite side of the parking lot, scaring the guy in the silver Tundra who gets his morning smoke there……

Complete round, run concourse to Regal, round 2 at the Regal, run back, round 3 at the overhang

Today was a tester in terms of just showing up in a downpour, but this is where the core principles of F3 (plus the responsibility of putting your name on the Qsheet) kicks in. We adapted, and while we ended up wet, a lot of that was due to sweat vs. torrential rains. Iron does sharpen iron, and YHC appreciates the all out performance of everyone this AM. We all got sharper. Thanks men!
