SOJ Inaugural PuppyPile


An extraordinary THIRTY gloom warriors posted this morning to our SOJ inaugural PuppyPile at NoToll, with a few brave men outnumbered at least 3-1 by a veritable herd of adventure-energized 2.0’s! An entirely intimidated DTH noted perfect conditions – sunny, 70 degrees, 0700 – and off we went!

  • Holy moly, and I thought regular F3 workouts were fun! This was AMAZING!!! Such great energy this morning with all the 2.0’s absolutely tearing through the exercises. Many thanks to Seadoo for bringing a speaker (which YHC had forgotten) so we could do the Gutbusters musical number, and of course hats off the Hardywood for bringing that awesome Slip-n-Slide back out for our grand finale today. Also big shout out to the Honeydew Crew who policed up the bricks after COT. Not surprisingly, the watermelon was a huge hit, and YHC is thinking we’ll be seeing more of the watermelonorama for YHC’s summer Q’s to come. And keep tuned – we will be doing this again in August! SYITG!
