PAX: Deep Dish, Cowboy, Vegemite, The Jeweler, T Cell, Bagger Vance
QIC: Bagger Vance
At 0610, 34* felt down right balmy as YHC, Deep Dish and Cowboy headed out for Pre. Pretty uneventful run, save nearly getting run over on Caldwell and DD having the slowest fall ever recorded by a 40 something year old.
The rest of the PAX slowly trickled in around 0657 as the 3 Pre were shaking off the run. Oddly enough, T Cell repeated almost verbatim the conversations DD, Cowboy and YHC had 40 minutes earlier…Temp, Christmas tree dump, etc.
Ok, here we go, short mosey coupled w Side Shuffles and Politicians to the Parade ground for
WOR (weak attempt from YHC to replicate the day’s Q)

NM – while we modified some of the MARSOC short card by adding SSH instead of Star Jumps, flipping the F Kix and Mtn Climbers and adding in the running it was still a pretty nasty beatdown. I woggled snot for sure, can’t speak for the rest of the PAX. Awesome to have Jeweler back in the mix, Kotters. By the by, may want to get a new alarm clock as we still start at 0700! Fun workout in a box as Hambone would call it, perhaps in 2018 we can implement the Long Card…we shall see.
Thank you all for being a part of F3 this year; it has been really neat to see this thing grow. As you wind down ’17 and reach for ’18 please think of that guy that could benefit from shared suffering, not being left behind and having a Fellowship that seeks to protect him. I am ever grateful for 5 Star’s introduction of F3 to me in the fall of ’14, it goes without saying that life would look a lot different without you HIM around. Again, I would encourage you to reflect upon the HIM that you have come to know for the first time or have gotten closer to through F3 and urge you to focus on just one EH a quarter that you can share this IMPACT with.
So, in closing, I want to thank yall for pushing me, allowing me to push you and for being a part of something that is bigger than us all.
NYD workout led by Princess Aurora at The Hill at 0700 on 1/1/18…it will be a doozy, I’m sure but worth every minute of it! I don’t know what this year’s theme will be but I can almost guarantee you a well schemed theme.
Keep our brothers in your prayers that have lost loved ones over this last year on the front of your prayer/thought list. This is a tough time for them and we should be lifting them up as much as possible.
Warpath version 93 coming up on 6 January, should be about ½ Marathon distance wise with about 4 AOs sprinkled in for good measure. Startex is Armada at 0500, endex should come 3-3.5 hours later, guessing back at Armada. Please reach out to Big Bang for routing and details.
5K4MLK coming up on 15 January, see www.5k4MLK.com for more details and information.
