PAX divided into three groups of four*. Three stations were setup around the memorial. All PAX ran to the first station, where one PAX from each group dropped and did exercises. The additional PAX continued to the second station where one PAX from each group dropped and did exercises. The last two PAX from each group continued on to the third station, where one PAX dropped for exercises, while the last PAX returned to the first station. That PAX replaced his teammate there, resuming the exercises at the count where the previous PAX left off, while that PAX continued on to the next station, continuing that pattern until time was up.
* We had three more PAX – not enough for a full group – so they each joined a team and paired with another PAX travelling together and only counting one set of reps.

We’re deep in the heart of Jester Season right now. Cold, wet weather, holiday commitments, work deadlines, the compounded stress of it all happening at the same time … and a small voice each morning promising you that you just need five more minutes in that warm bed. Just five more minutes of warm, quiet peace … until we negotiate the next five minutes. Waiting for January 1 to start fulfilling New Year’s Resolutions is just a commitment to letting the Jester win for the next three weeks, and what will happen on January 1 will be much harder that it is today because no one gets to stay in one place. You either move forward or backward.
The people who need to hear that message were not there in the gloom. PAX were encouraged to reach out to the HIMs who haven’t posted in a while and to the sad clowns who don’t know they need it and preach the word of F3, which is not a cult.
“That breeze feels pretty good.” A thing that Oui Oui said, in December.
“All exercises are hard count.” — YHC
“How do you do a hard count merkin?” — multiple smartasses
