A studly 16 arrived early at the #fenceline, or at least most of us did. 15 of us trotted off into a #brr preparation mosey, or what #fenceliners consider #brr prep may be a .5 mile before ending up right back where we started. YHC had about 3 workouts planned depending on what the rain finally decided to do. While the ground was wet, the humor was dry and we proceeded to the upper parking lot/stickball yard for warm-a-rama and Wicked’s timely arrival:
