The mission of F3 is to plant, grow and serve small workout groups for the invigoration of male community leadership.
Conditions: Low 70’s high-ish humidity. Actually felt decent to start the deal
FNGs: None today. However, YHC put out a post on the Wescott neighborhood page and have a few potential FNGs. Just got to reel them in.
COP: 10 TTT IC, 15 LBAC FORWARD; 15 LBAC REVERSE; THUNDERSTRUCK HIGH KNEES UP DOWNS (High knees and every time they say THUNDER hit the deck and back up. 5 minute song. Everyone loved it); Grab one block a piece and muster back at YIELD sign.
NUMBER OFF 1-18 for a foot race around the parking lot tournament style. 1 v. 18, 2 v 17, 3 v 16 etc. Once you lose a race you are out and for remainder of morning do exercises with the masses. Winner moves on. Each member will take off from the yield sign into the gravel parking lot. One goes around to the left and one goes straight out. First one back wins. Loser 5 burpees. Winner catches breath. YHC had PAX pick who they thought would win. If they were wrong they owed burpees with the loser. If they were correct they got to rest as well. While races were going on remaining PAX did exercises. All exercise done OYO until the racers returned.
Exercises were as follows (Some done with block and some done without)
Curls for Girl (block); merkins (no block), tricep extensions (block), WWI site up (NB), Overhead press (B), Hand release merkin (NB), Lawn Mower (switching arms as needed; B), Squats (NB), Mountain Climbers (B), LT Dan (lunge lunge squat, NB), Chest Press (B), LBC (NB), Damnits (B), Jump Squat (NB), Iron Crosses (B), Alt. Shoulder taps (NB).
After all the dust had settled we had Cheetah, Defib, and Yo Adrian remaining. Instead of making one of those guys run 2 back to back the championship was going to be 3 as opposed to 2. The PAX re-circled back up for the final race. YHC did this to get everybody reengaged. PAX made their wagers. Cheetah took off his shirt. Defib pulled his self up off the ground to finish what he had started. Cheetah was crowned champion this morning as Bedrocks fastest guy. Who knew a small framed guy with only about 25 years of life behind him was so damn fast. YHC knew he would be in contention from the get go but man that dude is fast.
As Cheetah enjoyed his rest and Defib tried to regain a sense of balance and replenished oxygen in his body, the remaining PAX took off on a slow mosey around the park. We made the loop as if we are going to the wiffle ball field and cut back across the bridge back into the gravel lot. Mosey back to flag and stow your blocks.
Mary: We got it in during the BC.
Namerama: Easy In, Fish N Chips, Waldo, Itgonbfun, City Slicker, Stalker, Defib, Chilly Willy, Show Me, Prius (R), Yo Adrian (R), Grits (R), Hospice (R), High Stick, Cliff Hanger (R), Cheetah, Repo; Sakrete
Pledge and COT– We did that.
Announcements: Professor is running 72km or something crazy like that on the CSU track to benefit Wounded Warrior Project. Starting at 8p tomorrow and going until 8a on Saturday. Stop by for a loop or two.
Betray Each Other
Are we not all children of the same father? Are we not all created by the same God? Then why do we betray each other, violating the covenant of our ancestors? (NLT) ( Malachi 2:10 )
Just as we were under the guidance of our earthly father as children, we should also be obedient to our Heavenly Father. God wants us to love others, even those who are hard to love; forgive others, even those who are hard to forgive; and serve others, even those who are hard to serve. If we practice and believe in these words, it will become easier to honor and obey God. Do something pleasant for someone today and you’ll notice that you’ll feel closer to your Heavenly Father.
Moleskin: YHC enjoys a little competition and I know competition brings out the best effort in people. In the pre blast I pretty much laid out what we would be doing and the men of F3 Summerville did not disappoint in their attendance. Defib posted that he would probably pass out at this BC. He almost proved that to be true. That guy is a trooper and will not quit. Cheetah is some sort of fast. In my best day I haven’t ever had the speed this guy does. Yo Adrian is also fast and doesn’t back down from a challenge. That respect tag he carries doesn’t mean he didn’t push Cheetah and Defib at the end. High Stick volunteered to run another race even after being eliminated. At the end as we were getting ready to take a jog around the park, YHC explained who was staying back. Cheetah because he won, Defib because his world was still spinning, and Chilly Willy because he was helping Defib. Fish and Chips lobbied for Yo Adrian to stick around because he had just finished his championship race. Pays to be a winner. Sakrete to FNC: “shut up and run”. We started with 18 and we finished with 18. All in all a good day at the Country Club.
