The Thang:

49.  Rain in the air, but it held off

It had been a minute since YHC posted at #BombSquad.  What with Wednesdays and Saturdays being ruck-related stuff at #Warthog, Mondays are really the only day I can make it here.  In fact, in a group text, YHC was considered a #Kotter (at least from this AO), so I was excited to get out here and Q and of course see all the guys I miss!!!   Looking back, it seems like my Mondays over the last 6 weeks were in Conway or smartsacks.  Anyhow, that’s one of the many awesome things about F3 – don’t see guys for a few weeks, and they give ya hard time in texts, but they are always glad to see you and welcome you right back in the mix!!

This part is for Bluegrass – the entire workout consisted of moving bleachers.  We moved them with ease and all around the entire AO for 45 minutes and then some.  We curled them, pressed them, squatted them.  Heck we pretty much did whatever we wanted to with them.  Not sure what happened a few weeks ago!

For the rest of you – As the men gathered, YHC was able to meet the newer PAX that I hadn’t yet met – Stonehedge, El Red Cardo, and Rubber.  Strong work done by them for sure!!  Also of course all the usual suspects – Skidmark, Crankbait, Boxcar, Bling [#Carpool], the AOQ Quaker, and always looking dapper – Buffett.  Also awesome to see Valvano making the trek up here for my Q!  #Honored.  Notably absent were many men, but 2 in particular that were HC’s as of last night – Sunshine and Weedeater!  Sunshine is always around, especially when he is a HC, so maybe he was up too late last night watching WWE Wrestlemania.  Weedeater I think needs to look up what a HC is, since he puts that in a message, and then doesn’t show!

1 minute warning; Look over and see Buffett planting the SF, and relieving himself?!!

– We have so much awesomeness going on all across the GrandStrand, it is hard to get everywhere all the time, so it was definitely great to get back to #BombSquad.  The beauty of F3 and how the mission is accomplished through starfishing and building leadership is clear everywhere across the region.  Men post.  Men lead.  Men hold each other accountable.  The AO’s grow and men are invigorated!!
