Laying a Foundation

Posted on Posted in Backblasts
  • When: 06/16/15
  • QIC: Jumanji
  • The PAX: Big Bird, OTC, LIFO, Drone, Eileen, Cousin Eddie, FarahandFarah, Jumanji

8 of the usual weekday PAX posted in the humid, 80 degree gloom of Southside park to work on the foundation of F3 Jacksonville.  A smokey smell from wildfires and a few of our usual homeless friends made it a true Jax morning.  Mosey to the field where the PAX found some bricks waiting.  YHC explained to the PAX that F3 is about building better men, so they better lace on their work boots and pull on their gloves to do some construction work.  Each man takes two bricks.  All exercises are done with a brick in each hand unless otherwise noted.

Naked Man Moleskin

  • Qs for the week- Drone has Thur, OTC has Saturday.  Big Bird’s man from SC is down next week and will guest Q the weekday workouts
  • YHC is watching the PAX get better every week, especially the faithful who are posting on weekdays and Saturday.
  • #TheBear (heat and humidity) is out of hibernation now, but none of the PAX got bear-bit (heat exhaustion or heat stroke) this morning.  Just some men that looked like they jumped in a lake when 0615 rolled around.
  • A logo is coming, we are looking for CSAUPS to do as a group, and we are talking to some of our media friends to get some coverage of F3JAX.
  • If you are a weekend warrior you need to try out a weekday and see how much faster you get better.
