13 oaks met at the Carillon for a Bleeder style beatdown. Swirly lent YHC a SF for the planting. It might have been rainy and in the 50s, but the mumblechatter from the PAX sure made it feel like it was 70 and sunny here in RVA (booya).

Mosey back to the flag. Numberama, namearama, announcements, YHC asked Singer to take us out but YHC really did it.
Apparently winning BB of the week might be about shock value of the title, so we’ll see if this one gets any play with Bleeder & Co. Great to see Honey Do out in the gloom after his late night at the Reba concert last night with his 2.0. The rain held off just long enough to get the PAX out of bed and ready for a beatdown but the skies opened during the COP and Dora. YHC could not stop thinking about the RAT FARTS! scene in Caddyshack. The PAX should be worried about Circle K’s career chances as a meteorologist … did anyone hear him scream “it’s 70 and sunny, baby!!!” in the midst of the deluge? Based on a text from Goose, he wasn’t pleased that the burpees went UP the ladder instead of DOWN. Sorry Goose but that was the point.
While the rain kept YHC from asking the PAX do to step ups on those massive planters out front of the Carillon, we had some math issues in building triple check teams. Maybe we can get Abacus to host a 2nd F counting event soon?
Bestiality Hill was an on-the-fly change because some hothouse tomatoes were taking shelter from the weather in the amphitheater. Rather than force them to listen to our grunts and groans on the steps, YHC remembered Sippy’s ABCD of pain down Love Hill and thus Bestiality Hill was born. The ABCDs weren’t getting the desired effect so adding the exercises in between sure seemed to. By the way the PAX were howling during some of those interval exercises on the second set, I’m sure the tomatoes over in the hothouse were shocked and appalled at the grunts regardless.
YHC never sleeps well the night before a Q and last night YHC was particularly grumpy which didn’t change when getting up this morning. Even so, it’s hard to be grumpy when you pull into the parking lot and see the PAX. YHC started with his first F3 workout about two years ago on a frigid February morning at 45MOM and YHC vowed he’d never go back. It’s been a long way to get to the point where YHC is actually Qing events but every time YHC enjoys it a little more. Shout out to the PAX for having fun in some less than ideal weather. Thanks to the PAX for following YHC and giving it your all, it’s always an honor to lead. Shout out to Swirly for keeping at it while he gets back up to full speed, way to go! Shout out to Love Seat and Bunny Slope as you guys are coming along quickly and your game is strong!
Good luck to the Belmonte team! If you want to run in mud or be a “trash bitch”, see Toga (Ragnar). Be sure to talk to TYA if you want to run 20+ miles on the flattest pavement the east coast has to offer (SMR).
