  • The PAX: Drone, Pyro, Toxic (double respect), Snuffy (respect), Osteen, Pud, Synapse (respect), LIFO, Farah & Farah (double respect), Hollywood, Biiiiing, Pick-Six (FNG-Blake), McDreamy, RP (FNG-Max), Feud

15 PAX, including 2 FNGs, posted at #Anchor, in the Jacksonville gloom, to welcome back YHC, who had a brief absence this week due to some sort of sinus bug that kicked butt. Unfortunately, YHC also suffered a shoulder injury during his time off and struggled a bit coming up with a worthy beat down for his return. Unfortunately for the PAX, YHC determined: if we can’t do upper-body, there is always lower the lower body… and core.

Good work by the PAX this morning with the FNGs holding their own. It was great being back after missing time with the PAX due to hurricane prep at the hospital and getting sick. YHC informed the PAX that today ended up being a leg and core day due to an injured shoulder. All were welcomed to find out the nature of the injury at coffeteria. During today’s beat down, YHC was happy to provide an opportunity for the PAX to openly discuss how the three different components of F3 have impacted their lives, or how it has helped them impact others; after all, it is not about us.

Prayers intensions to all those still recovering and affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria, especially Hollywood’s M’s family in Puerto Rico; for healing for all the injured members of the PAX, and for the man only known to us as “62”. Finished with the Lord’s Prayer.
