YHC headlocked a FNG to come to Dogpile. Texts flew back and forth for the past few days with the impending ice storm, sleet and freezing rain. YHC assured him that F3 workouts will happen rain or shine. In fact some of the best beatdowns have been in inclement weather. Dogpile is the best as it is usually the convergence of North and South of the river. A crazy blend of PAX for YHC to introduce to the FNG. So to prepare, YHC arrived 15 minutes early to recon the scene, and drove on the triangle route road-slushy and some…

Many familiar faces and a few missing usual suspects, 12 warriors showed up to brave the cold and dark of the gloom and here’s how it went down. With no one on the Q sheet, YHC was graciously penciled in to fill the spot. CoP The PAX moseyed over to and circled in the loop near the Caroline Tower for some side-straddle hops, dead man hangs, arm circles, merkins, and LBC’s.

“Tyranny is our foe. Whatever trapping or disguise it wears, whatever language it speaks, be it external or internal, we must for ever be on our guard, ever mobilized, ever vigilant, always ready to spring at its throat. In all this we march together. Not only do we march and strive shoulder to shoulder at this moment, under the fire of the enemy on the fields of war or in the air, but also in those realms of thought which are consecrated to the rights and the dignity of man.”-Winston S. Churchill 17 Warriors for freedom, peace and prosperity by…
