Temperature in the lower 20s with snow covering the ground and portions of the road.
COP – Group mosey to side road, SSH x 50, TTH x 5, DQ x 5
THANG – Smoker; 10 Burpees, Bear Crawl to cone Jail Break to far cone and back. Teams then divided based on order of finish with Maj Dad leading team one and Cheech leading team two. Concept being a relay race between teams. Race consisted of Bear Crawling to first cone and then Jail Break to far cone and back, R&R until all team members have ran. While not running, team leaders alternate leading all Pax in series of exercises on Q or in cadence as appropriate. There were no required sequence of exercises; SSH, Body Builders, Monkey Humpers, Seal Jacks, WW 1 Sit-ups, Flutter Kicks, Mountain Climbers, Hand Release Merkins to name a few. Losing team was led by respective Q for five additional Burpees on Q while winners watched and rested. Smoker again with intent to finish stronger than when we did the Smoker at the beginning of the BC. Mosey as group back to AO.
Mary – Flutter kicks, Box Cutters (by request), Hand Release Merkins AND Seal Jacks.

Moleskin – With the cancellation of the anniversary BC due to weather, YHC picked up the Q. A quick recon of the AO the night prior indicated that there was only one road near the AO where running could be done safely. Knowing that he has been battling a strong case of the FOO, YHC decided to persuade Cheech to be the Co-Q for this BC; thanks brother. T Claps to Peaches who coordinated for a ride the night prior. He was standing at the end of his neighborhood upon my arrival; did I mention it was just above 20 degrees? MEN, WHEN FIGHTING THE FOO, THINK ABOUT THIS. Peaches is legally blind, coordinated a ride to a BC in the snow and then stood in the cold waiting for a ride. WHAT IS YOUR EXCUSE FOR NOT POSTING? The mumble chatter was present throughout the BC as the discussion seemed to focus on frozen hands and the feeling of sucking glass while doing sprints. Although my last three Q’s have been in less than desirable conditions, let it be known, that this guy absolutely hates cold weather. Team one defeated team two 4 of the 5 races and yes team one rested while the others performed Burpees. Comes up fairly often as it seems some of our F3 brothers are confused by the concept of “It pays to be a winner”. Mary was conducted around the flag in ankle deep snow. GOOD LIVING! STRONG work by all of the men present and great 2nd F at DD. Proud to Serve, Major Dad
