5 Years of Shank-a-licious Times

Here is the story of how YHC came to be a kool-aid drinking Shanker. My neighbor, Doc Lovin’, saw me in my driveway on a Monday night and asked what I was doing on Tuesday morning. YHC said nothing and said be outside at 5:15 and a cup of coffee will be waiting. That’s my EH story. YHC was hooked after a Hash & Rice beatdown.

The 1st F3 workout was a Dora partner routine. Cowbell was the dude that had to watch YHC struggle through the crabwalks and bearcrawls. This dude was encouraging throughout the workout even though we consistently were in the 6 position due to my efforts. What a great introduction to Shawshank.

During the past 5 years, we have a few guys come and go, but the core group is as solid a bunch of guys that could be found anywhere. We have shared quite a bit together, been through losses, seen additions to family, and prayed for one another on a regular basis. YHC would trust this group with anything. The past 5 years has taught me the importance of having the right men in your life who are trustworthy, reliable, and will hold you accountable for bootcamps and life in general. Enough of the sap, on to today.
