Christmas Eve in the Rain

I went to bed last night thinking do I really need to Q tomorrow morning?  Dingo had signed me up to Q Iron fist on Christmas eve as I hadn’t volunteered recently.  However I strained my calf yesterday running, it hurt and the forecast was 100% chance of rain.  Did I really need to make a workout plan, set the alarm, getdressed and drive to Stonebridge to see that no one was there.  So I went to sleep not knowing how I’d feel in the morning.  When I got up I felt responsibility and begrudgingly got dressed and drove to Stonebridge with my plan to turn around once I saw no one was there.  However up on arriving I noticed 6 cars already there so I said yes – this is F3!!  Suddenly my mood changed to how fortunate I am that I have peer pressure to get out of bed and the health to exercise.  I am fortunate of that this Christmas season. Though four other Pax did the Cruise Forgotten Jelly thoughtfully joined me in an Iron Fist beatdown.  We made good use of the shed so our exercise was not only good but relatively dry!

    Good stuff Maximus! The peer pressure of F3 is a powerful force!! Pouring down with rain on Christmas Eve……We should have been in bed like normal people! But no! The idea that one of your brothers might be out there alone is enough to get us out of the fartsack and we we are stronger, better men for it!
