History Lesson Takes the JAX PAX Back to Launch Day

Posted on Posted in Backblasts
  • When: 06/06/15
  • QIC: Big Bird and Jumanji
  • The PAX: Tugboat, Heisenberg, FarahandFarah (WD), Stark, Ace, LIFO, Band Camp, Hollywood, Double Shot (WB), Feud, OTC, Cousin Eddy, Big Bird, Jumanji

14 PAX posted in the increasingly humid FL gloom to see what the history lesson was all about.  We announced the replay of Chaser and Doc’s exact launch workout so the PAX could judge how far they’d come in two months.  The original PAX liked the idea, but the newer men were unsure of exactly what that might entail.  YHC and Big Bird played the parts of Chaser and Doc to the best of our humble abilities.

BOM at the SF: discussed the need and possibility for additional AOs for weekday workouts- Tugboat taking the lead on the West side of the river with his church posey.  BB introduced the idea of F3 PAX events- mud runs, races, etc. to grow the 2nd and 3rd Fs.  Prayers for Heisenberg to continue healing and Hollywood’s big movie pitch coming up this week.

NakedMan Moleskin:

  • Not 1, not 2, but 3 freight trains rocked through the AO resulting in 30 extra Burpees for the PAX. Not way off in the distant trains, but close enough to rattle your teeth during the line work.  A horrible burning plastic smell enveloped the AO after the first train passed, adding a little extra spice to the exercise dizzy.
  • The results of 2 months of work showed, especially for the men posting faithfully on weekdays.  Big Bird’s first F3 workout resulted in dry heaving and Double Shot received that name for a reason.  Today they were at the front of the pack with a MeanMeanStride.  All the original PAX are seeing the results and getting better every week.
  • YHC thinks we need our friends from the Carolinas to come back down for a visit Q and give us another bar to strive for.
