The mission of F3 is to plant, grow and serve small workout groups for the invigoration of male community leadership.
Conditions: 58 degrees
Every month the men of Seismic gather to run the Hero, the AO’s monthly endurance test, in honor of a hero to one of the PAX. This month, we honored Tad and Sophie.
Tad and Sophie are Maremma sheepdogs who stayed behind to protect their flock of sheep when their owners had to evacuate their land due to this summer’s wild fires. Their story reminds us that we have the responsibility of protecting our family and community, being men who can be leaned on and depended upon even in times of danger.

Devo: Shared the story of Tad and Sophie and our role as the guardians of our own flocks.
Moleskin: To the best of my knowledge, this is the first time an animal has been honored at the Hero, but it seemed to work today and Tad and Sophie have some inspiration to offer in the area of dedication duty. We welcomed an FNG, The Samoan this morning in addition to testing ourselves against the Hero. Oh, and once again, Old Flame defeated the Hero. He crushes it….every time.

This was my first time at Seismic and my first time doing The Hero. Only completed 3 cycles, but I’ve only been doing F3 for a month. I would like to say that I held back to stay with our FNG “The Samoan” but frankly, I’m just old, fat and slow. It was a real pleasure getting out there with you guys and bringing a friend along too. Thanks. “HARBAUGH”
