A Festivus for Farmers – The Coupon Double Down

YHC loves a few things in the life. His savior, his M, his 2.0’s, his 3.0, a nice bourbon, fast cars, beef, bacon, steak, bacon, burgers, burgers with bacon, bacon, peanut butter (Peter Pan), first responders, military, farmers and the double mint twins. What better way to celebrate than with doubling down on coupons and doing some farmer carries between exercises.

YHC rolled into the Shank parking lot and noticed two things…1 pax was lit up for a lonely stride lite session and 2 pax were closing out time spent at The Rock. Good dudes putting in extra work before the fun began.

Weather: 71 degrees, 94% humidity, SSE wind at 3mph, 4 miles of visibility, 0 uv index, good air quality.

Kind of a 1 Minute Warning, Disclaimer, Prayer.

  2. Gauntlet begins 10/19 – all bootcamps start at 5am.

Closing prayer.

Devo: Zephaniah 3:17 – The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.

Lot of promises on this verse for those who belong to the Lord. Be encouraged, we are never alone.
