The coldest F3 Summerville workout I can recall prior to today was 19 degrees. If it wasn’t 19 today it was damn close, and the wind (damn you, wind) made it much, much worse. Is there anything more fun than working out in sub-20 degree temps? Why yes there is, in fact – it’s playing with cinder blocks that have been soaking in that icy coldness all night long. Being able to feel your fingers and hands is overrated. Eight bad mofos told the wind and cold to piss off for a memorably cold kickoff to 2018 at Seismic. Feel the burn, boys. It’s probably frostbite, but feel it anyway.
Conditions: Uh, cold. Cold as balls. Cold as a witch’s tit in a brass bra. Cold as a brass outhouse seat in a Montana winter. Cold as a welldigger’s ass in Idaho. Cold.
