Tour de Lot

14 of Columbia’s finest (pax) showed up at #SwampFox with very little idea of the plan for the morning… YHC included.  Every once in a while the hankering for a Wienkeless Q takes hold and its just good to see what comes of it.  Today, the route provided the opportunities, the Q simply filled in a few pearls.

From the CMS lot, mosey around to the main school entrance for an inaugural COP including:

Mosey up Clemson and into the Stagecoach parking lot on the corner holding 6″ until the pax are assembled for a little more:

  • Russian Twists X 30 IC 4CT

Mosey (dejectedly) back to the COT for the naming of a few FNG’s (Welcome!) and the BOM.

Devotional by LeVar on having an eternal perspective on the days of our life, that we might store up treasures in heaven.  Death comes to us all.  Tragically from our perspective, the long time organist of First Presbyterian Church passed away last night while at church.  He had just, that afternoon, played the rebuilt FPC organ and was leading the choir in practice for worship on Sunday when the Lord called him home.  Please pray for the Miller family.


  • You never can be sure what you’re going to get when Q’ing it up without a net.  While not what I’d recommend for any new guy to F3, there’s a certain satisfaction in wearing yourself out in the gloom on the fly.  I’m smoked and hope it was an equally beneficial workout to the other 13 guys.
  • Welcome to a couple visitors.  Scam, an Auburn grad, got nicknamed as a slight to Cam Newton.  This evening’s USC opening game up on Charlotte is clearly on everyone’s mind.  Hakim, through a far more circuitous route, was named for Eddie Murphy’s character in Coming to America as he’s visiting from Queens, NY.  ‘Might be time to launch F3NYC!  #ChaserBaiting
  • Strong work guys.


  • The #BullOnFire cranks up Labor Day morning, 5:30.  Some of the run groups are taking the opportunity to visit the concrete beast.  It’s going to be an otherwise lazy day so post early in honor of the firefighters who gave their lives on September 11th.
  • Labor Day 5 miler is also that morning… double down?  #Brutal.
  • 2nd F Lunch today at Salsarita’s in the Vista.  Don’t forget.
