The Skinny: 15 FiA’s showed up an hour earlier than our normal Saturday time, swapping our time with F3 for their convergence. Happy 2nd Anniversary to NETN F3! TSquared amazed us all by posting on her wedding day. We celebrated by providing a sash & veil to wear during the workout, and mimosas after. Congratulations to TSquared & Paulie!

COT: Welcome to our FNG, The Motivator! Passport read a passage found on FB earlier in the week about respecting the grind, and ourselves, with an appreciation for the gift we give ourselves when we rise early to post. Then off to toast TSquared with a prayer given by Peaches for her wedding, and marriage. Coffeeteria at First Watch, because Open Doors wasn’t open this early on a Saturday!
