4 Showed up for the  first official F3 workout at Poston Park. Named “Madoriyama” for the severe ninja training and the massive mtn looming over the park. I say official because over the last 8 months 2 men have joined and pushed YHC every Tuesday and Thursday at 5:30 pm awaiting F3 Gastonia to be ready for expantion into the evening.(during the winter we are in the gloom too!)

The usual announcements. JK2 is interested in doing the mud run so we need three more to step up and join him. We have one team so far. Contact him or me if interested.

As always it was a pleasure! I have to give a shoutout to Pizza Man and Floppy Disk who have had a huge impact on my life the last year. Locking shields with me weekly and giving me reason to push on!

F3 Gastonia is proof of the starfish and how it happens. I have found lately that sadclowns make me mad and I am surrounded by them everywhere! So help me get better by making these clowns better. EH someone and get them out to a workout. We have 6 days of workouts in the mornings and the evenings now. We are eliminating excuses.

I look forward to seeing others join us at Midoriyama. It is a great location. We accept early workers, fartsackers, smartsackers and those that just plainly won’t get up! No more excuses! Aye!
