2021 – One Final Beatdown

PAX: Scar U, Mulligan, Aviator, Wing Man, Wall-E, Soul, Dos Equis, Photo Finish, Black Hole, Risky Business (Q)

On a cloudy with slight drizzle, 43 degree morning, 10 souls converged in the gloom for one last F3 Princeton Beatdown by YHC. The last three Q’s by YHC became fodder by a member of the PAX, as, “Risky didn’t plan or have any creative ideas, so he does the Hill-Ten” (or Hill-20, or Hill-13). Realizing the that this would be the last bootcamp of 2021, there had to be a theme, 2021!

YHC delivered a disclaimer, that would more appropriately labeled pure “showmanship”; which my friends, was the goal, all inspired from a scene from the movie, “A Knight’s Tale”.  Noting some of the PAX weren’t thrilled with such an exuberant disclaimer, all were in agreement to carry on such a momentous workout!
