Appreciate the PAX indulging YHC on another year of this workout. Hoping to make it a SOT holiday tradition. Rosie inspired YHC yesterday with his use of “1 dozen LBCs”…this trick came in handy with the lower numbered doors.

The PAX crushed it this morning…even the Jingle Balls (of which 25 may be too many). As is typical when YHC leads, one of PAX commented that they were expecting more running for a Tobit Q. And as always, YHC aims to please.

It happens every year, the holidays come and go in a blink of an eye. Many find this time of year stressful and hectic (and YHC admits…it can be). But if you take just a moment to step back from the craziness, you’ll encounter a peace that is difficult to attain any other time of year. And with F3, the gloom can really be a peaceful place.

  2. Nice work Tobit, the only thing I remember from last year was the Jingle Balls and they were not any better this year.

  3. Very sorry to miss this one. Knee was screaming after OTB, RiverRun and 12 Days. I will be there next year for sure.
