The Thang:

YHC arrived on scene to find Candy Cane and DR Pax Hacker from Lake Norman stretching and ready to go!  Right away I am excited to see Candy Cane because he’s a young buck and might really give us older guys an extra push this morning.  But hold up…where is Quaker (our First FQ), who happens to be on Q this morning?  Usually Quaker can be found posted up a good 8-10 minutes before the work out with the Iron Flag planted, stretching and greeting incoming Pax.  Okay, maybe he’s just a little later than usual and after all he’s the one that got this AO challenge up and rolling, no way he would miss a Q!  One minute warning… okay for real, looks like YHC is defacto Q.  By now Kotter Sapphire who I got an HC from last night is also ready to roll so let’s get moving!

BOM by YHC

Moleskin:
It turned out Quaker had gotten his Q dates on the calendar mixed up and thought he was on Q at BombSquad next week.  Knew there had to be a plausible reason since the dude is Mr. Reliable.  Speaking of Mr. Reliable, ERC probably posts to 95% of the BombSquad workouts so got to give him T-Claps!  Candy Cane, who usually posts at Catapult, did turn out to be a beast and lead the charge on the laps around the church and seemed like he only got stronger as the workout continued, hope he posts some more with us at BombSquad!  Sapphire did pretty good for only his 2nd F3 bootcamp and is dealing with some knee pain also, encouraged him to post at Catapult some also.  Last but not least, DR Pax Hacker is in great shape for his age and something to aspire towards!

Honor to Lead!!
