Today was about 196 laps around the sun. That’s how the Qs have had. Yhc, Busted Grill, Hoveround, and Niles, the shrink rapper.

Of course, we started out with 55 Goof balls, then 8 IW IC 8 GP IC

Busted Grill had the next 15 minutes. He had us do grinders. He just likes saying Grinders, in a context where he’s not considered a dirty old man. He had us do a few merkins and squats.

Then Hoveround did a great job of impersonating angry EPO, as he led us in 4 corners. A few lunges and squats here of there.

Then the Shrink Rapper took over. Since yhc is now 55, I can’t even remember what beat down he had us do. But I do remember this. He shared a poem of how opportunity knocks and we must seize the moment. Then he flipped the script the way all great followers of The Way know how to do. The world says seize your moments and opportunities. The Bible says wait on the LORD, and Jesus will knock.

Yhc truly of these 3 Respects. They have shared so much wisdom and wit with me these last 8 years. My life would be less full without them.

A gaggle of pax gathered in the gloom for a Friday beatdown. Let’s freaking go!

Warmorama 55 SC IC 8 IW IC 8 GP IC

Let’s hand the beatdown over to Beauty, bc he is a beast. He took us to the basketball courts for 11s. Burpees and merkins. Then we moseyed to the front side of the school for a game of frogger. Partner workout. Bear crawl up the marathon steps of the school. Then run across the street to your partner who is doing a variety of Mary exercises. We only lost 2 pax.

Back to the flag for some HC penalty burpees.

Today is yhc’s 55th BD. Can’t imagine a better way to start my day or another group of HIMs I would want to start it with. There is no way to communicate the depth of impact F3 has had on my life, and BDs are always great times to reflect on that.

Pony Express took the runners. Flight Nurse took the ruckers. Two professionals right there. How lucky are we? Yhc went with the ruckers. FN found every dang staircase possible. Holy smokes! Had a great time catching up with Snooki. If you have not had a chance to hang out with HIM, seek him out. He’s a stud, and is making an impact throughout F3Nation.

Love and accept every man where we find him, but love him too much to leave him there. F3 has done that for me. And it will do it for you to if you let it. #giveitaway

Pez biked in on his beach cruiser, on a mission for a truly sucky workout. We opened with 8 PAX into Warmarama, including SSH, LBAC, and numerous shoulder and leg stretches. Moseyed to the fire pit for some Bulgarian Split Squats, then to the Lake House for 8 x 10-count Wall Site, then to the entrance stairs for Step ups, then the short field for Crunchy Frogs.

Runners- moseyed to the parking lot by the skatepark for some speedurance

1 minute lap around the parking lot followed by a 30 second rest.

Each lap started one parking space farther back than the last. Ended up right at 2 miles full of sprints.

10 count said it was the fastest 2 miles he's ever ran and that was with the 30 seconds of rest in between each set.

The Q realized we still had about 15 minutes left so we did an active recovery for a few minutes then ran the loop at Ogden park for an extra mile to get us just over 3 for the day.

Returned to the AO for some Dora and the COT.
