Mosey back to Alexandria Oaks park with the flag (Jumanji at the front, BB has the 6) .7 miles
Hard on the PAX, but everyone stayed tough and arrived within 5 minutes of the SF. Heisenberg showed his runner’s stride- taking the SF home at a good pace. Lots of appreciative honks and waves from the peoples driving by for a group of men proudly carrying the red, white, and blue.

BOM led by Jumaji

– YHC talked about the importance of the men in the circle stepping up to lead and Q, to help F3 expand and succeed in JAX.
– Everyone was encouraged to get a Twitter account if they didn’t have one.
– Prayer requests- Big Bird and Bernadette’s church family for a missing mom in their congregation, Feud’s coworker who is undergoing surgery.
– Coffeeteria afterwards at Maple Street Biscuit Company and that’s when YHC heard those sweet words ‘that workout is my new least, most favorite. Hardest one yet.’ Thanks OTC.

Big Bird has the Q for Wednesday- 0530 at Southside park; get out of your fart sacks and get better.

One thought on “Jacksonville FieldTrips with the Red, White & Blue

  1. AYE!!

    Looks like a great beatdown. Bear Crawls always kick everyone’s butt.
    Proud to see Jumanji and Big Bird step up to lead the Q. I look forward to following the JAX PAX progress going forward.
