The mission of F3 is to plant, grow and serve small workout groups for the invigoration of male community leadership.
Conditions: 50, in between too cold and cool
COP: None, we run
YHC mapped distances between the entrances to the 3 neighborhoods that are passed on the straightaway when doing the big loop. Kind of like doing suicides back in the day, the Pax were instructed to run to the 3rd neighborhood (~1 mi out) and back, then to the 2nd neighborhood (~.6 mi out) and back, and then the 1st neighborhood (~.4 mi out) and you get the point. Total for all out and backs was approximately 4 miles which is the average distance run at the Creek. Since some Pax were recovering from the Sweet Tea Half, they were told they could drop or add legs as needed to fit their running speed and distances.
Mary: Running Only
Namerama: Discount, Meter Maid, Wee Woo, Pinwheel, Snowden, Urkel, Dr Octopus, Snyder, Olaf
Pledge and COT
Announcements: Ruck for Huger this weekend, the workout that shall not be named, Thanksgiving Convergence, Liquifaction, Spartan Race in Spartanburg, Summerville Parade and Christmas party. See the F3 Summerville Facebook page for details. We also learned the origin of the naming of the Creamer (the Creek + Tremor = Creamer) as it is a regular running convergence.
Prayer Request: Wee Woo’s nephew Malachi (pneumonia/lungs), Meter Maid’s ankle (and Snowden’s conscience), YHC’s coworker and another family friends’ son (motorcycle accident). Praise: Snowden found a house in Columbia.
Devo: Recently, YHC has been hear a lot about things being “a process”. Whether with a job, moving, trainging 2.0s, or exercising, things just don’t happen. It takes work to get to the destination. Sometimes we want to skip steps in between, but rushing things usually make more of a mess and we end up taking a longer road than we would have originally, and we miss out on things along the way. YHC challenged the Pax not to get discouraged but to look for lessons that could be learned along the way.
Moleskin: While trying to do the devo, we had to watch someone in a large truck back into a parking spot under a tree near the COT. This happens frequently during the the Creek COT, and the person always makes a 20 point turn trying to get the truck parked correctly. So I guess sometimes we need to not rush and take the time to do a 20 point turn to get things right.
