This was a tough workout even for the hard-baked runners. You know things are pretty messed up when you view bear crawls as a welcome break. Many really dug deep to finish the last few sets of repeats with poise, and YHC was impressed and grateful to be among the strong.
Sippy Cup and Swirley seemed to consistently finish at the top. If I failed to mention other top performers, then please give them a shout-out below. They deserve it. YHC could not hang with those men.
Congratulations to HoneyDo and CHum Bucket for completing a Goruck this past weekend and showing F3Richmond the way.
Loose Goose threw down the gauntlet, challenging men to complete the 10,000 or 5,000 merkin challenge with him in November. YHC accepts the challenge.
Please make every effort to attend the F3 Great Pumpkin Run 5K and Kids’ Fun Run this Saturday, whether you are running or just hanging out. F3 is the chief named sponsor (thanks Bleeder!), and this is a great opportunity to grow our numbers. The race starts at 8:30AM at Lewis Ginter.
