Excellent job today Pax, thanks for joining the fun. The usual bunch except a BT siting after he took a few weeks off. YHC just didn’t feel like running back up the hill today so it was broken up a bit with other workout exercises. Sometimes after a workout the brain doesn’t communicate words to the mouth in a clarified manner, hence camaraderie thing sounded like karate thing. We all laughed, mostly at YHC.

Congratulations to the Belmonte folks completing their mountain work this weekend.

Ides of March HDHH at Splinters, followed by the historic annual F3 March Madness workout at MM by Splinter himself. Looking forward to it.

  3. That was a good combo of exercises on Hate Hill. My legs were burning. I’m going to recycle that one for sure!

  4. Thanks for the push Hardywood – I have been slacking lately. See you tomorrow in the soup at No Toll?
