The Herd takes a trip down Memory Lane

15 hearty pax gathered ‘round the #ShovelFlag at Howard Park this AM to take the #DRP with their Brothers. A good time was had by all as we welcomed a pax that moved away 4 years ago, an FNG, 2.0s, and everyone pulling together to get better today. YHC appreciated the pax indulging him to wax a little sentimental today and take everyone on a trip down Memory Lane for his 8-year F3 anniversary Q.

Good times with The Herd as always today! Preparing for this workout was fun — going back and researching old workouts (some of those old backblasts are still on the internet!), old tweets, etc. to determine dates, number of pax and other details of workouts from back in the day… so many good memories!

Great having Elaine with us today! Appreciate him stopping over in West Cola on his way to a wedding in Charlotte this weekend. Also good to see Tuff Guy out on a Saturday! T-claps to Yellow Cake (one of the 3 pax today that posted at the launch of Jumanji back in 2014 along with Tuff Guy and YHC) and his son Thanos. Always appreciate the Detainees that come over Broadhead and Banjo today — who also brought an FNG! Always good to have some 2.0s in tow. Yoshi and Fast Ball always keep things interesting, but do a great job keeping up. T-claps to Recyclops not missing a step today after being on the IR the past 10 days.
