Speaking for the Charlotte Crew, we are very impressed at the growth in Columbia!  Your current growth rate is faster than Charlotte ever experienced.  As a Columbia native I am very proud of how well my city has taken hold of a great idea.

The Shield is a big hit and much appreciated!  Dredd slept with it several nights in a row.  Rumor has it that OBT is snuggling up with it now.  Needless to say I will never see that sucker again.

The Thicket is also the envy of F3 Nation.  No other site has a set up like that.  I have mentioned to several but when the weather warms up you guys might want to think about changing clothes prior to the Thicket.  You guys will end up smelling like wet hot garbage.  We know this from experience…

Lots of Larry Birds on the Jacobs Ladder!  The fitness level of the crowd is moving up fast.  Keeping pushing yourselves.

Make sure you guys check the website.  One of the best things we do in F3 are CSUAP events (Mudruns, Spartans, etc.  We had 280 guys out for a practice run for the mudrun this am at the Whitewater Center.  Plenty of events including the Spartan in March.  Let us know if interested!

Must admit I told Dredd and OBT we should go a different weekend because we would not have a good turnout on MLK Weekend…… 41

  1. OK @JimmyEatWorld, first I have to bust your chops about not posting this for a week, but not very hard. Great work you have done cranking #COLA up. Seeing as you are the #Nant’an of #F3Metro, planting a workout is #SouthOfBallantyne is not even part of your job, and yet you did it. Strong. #TClaps.

    Secondly, this is a great crew. Even if they had not presented us with the (ahem) greatest thing ever, the #Shield, I would have loved these guys. Great guys. #COLA rocks.

    Finally, let me say what an honor it is to have been invited to #COLA to throw a Q. Great stuff. I love you Brothers. Aye.

  2. We were excited to have you guys come down! Thanks to CrotchRocket, Dredd, OBT, and Moniteur for spending the morning with us. I guess the hill is now forever “Mama’s Mountain.” April at Lizard’s Thicket said you’re welcome back any time, even if we do stink. And the #Shield was our pleasure — hope it gets great use as a symbol across F3Nation!
