The Kessel Run was a hyperspace route[2] within the Akkadese Maelstrom used by smugglers and unscrupulous freighter captains to move spice from the spice mines of Kessel at the behest of the Pyke Syndicate, who relied on the foolhardy Kessel Runs to deliver the illicit substance to their customers.[6] Han Solo, piloting the Millennium Falcon, made the infamous run in slightly over 12 parsecs,[7] boasting about his ship's ability to endure shorter but more hazardous routes through hyperspace.[8] By doing so, Solo broke a long-held record.[2] The route Solo used to achieve this feat was an ancient Purrgil migration route.[1]

Moseyed across the CFCC bridge and then down to the old wall for balls to the wall and burpees.

This workout was inspired by Flight Nurse’s upcoming GROWRUCK Academy and his mission to become at GTE Cadre.  I know he can do this on his own, but here at F3 Cape Fear, we don’t believe in OYO.  For that reason, I played cadre for the day and developed a sandbag/ruck workout that challenged us to do the hard things in life.

Form Sandbags into a log using carabiners.

Walk in formation carrying SB log.  Q will call for overhead carry and then shoulder switch.  

Every 5 minutes, unhook sandbags and do a 60 x 60.  (60 seconds to do as many 60 pound sandbag burpees as you can). Each round must be at least rep count from previous round or better.  3 Navy Seal Burpees for each rep under baseline.

EVOLUTION OF A PAX - lessons from one year in F3…

FEAR - Our first posts involve varying degrees of fear due to the uncertainty around what will be thrown at us next by the Q. New people, new places, we must get adjusted. Earbud once led a workout where we didn’t leave our spot in the lot of LLP the whole 45 minutes- it might have been the worst beatdown I’ve ever been a part of, and I was fearful of each next exercise.

In honor of this, I threw a bunch of randomness at the guys: 25 burpees, balls to the wall, 30 quad count mountain climbers, squats

GROWTH - We eventually find routine in our posts and begin breaking through barriers, getting much stronger, and accelerating towards new levels of confidence. I recounted my first ever 4 mile run at 43 feet where I was shocked and invigorated that I completed the run - I had avoided running like COVID since my last overhaul knee surgery. Felt much stronger now…crushing workouts, and now able to encourage others during workouts.

Did an Indian run around the block and to the tennis courts - similar to our run on my first post. Lots of support and strong encouragement.

IMPACT - Our eyes are then opened to how we can each have an impact on the other men joining the workouts. We learn how to be “mustard men” and leave a positive stain on someone’s life. I can’t preach it like Kneehigh2, but the point is to engage and make an impact on someone.

In honor of this life lesson, we did a DORA but never left our partner’s side.
-100 merkins -150 shoulder taps -200 double count flutter kicks Then run to other side of court for 20 squats

EMPOWERMENT - Leading now feels more natural because we are comfortable with the system, as well as empowered and supported by those around us.

Did a mini Q school (not as well as Kramer). 3 PAX who have never led a workout came to the center and each led an exercise.

COT -Too many announcements to mention here -Pray for all those struggling with thoughts of self-harm, and the people impacted (recently at Chapel Hill).

The Thang: We partnered up for a Dora. our exercises were 100 kettlebell swings, 200 step ups, and 300 squats. While partner one was performing the exercise, partner too to predetermined location and did three burpees before running back to their partner.

weemosied back over to the AO for a circuit consisting of curls, tricep extensions, single arm chest press on each side, and kettlebell swings. we did the arm exercises for 30 seconds before we're heading to the next exercise then did 25 swings before rinsing and repeating.

COT: Milton discussed one of his army buddies who recently passed away and how he lived very intentionally. Making sure we are intentional with our lives is a big part of what F3 is about so let's be sure we don't just drift through life. There are several teams in the works for the southern tour Ultra in January. Be on the lookout for more information in the coming weeks.

Don't get me wrong, this morning's workout was incredible. 5 motivated individuals came together and inspired the person next to them. The F3 mission statement is to plant, grow, and serve small workout groups for men for the invigoration of male community leadership. That's definitely what was on display this morning. I personally love leading smaller groups as it provides me an opportunity to talk to each Pax as we are gasping for air, developing that bond, and making each other stronger. On to the workout!

2 Ruckers (Caliseum and Southie) rucked off as 11 runners headed south out of the Park.

We played a round of live frogger on front street but managed to stay alive long enough to get to the Watsons Welding building. There we stopped and did 22 Merkins in honor of the fact that 22 American servicemen take their own lives every day. That building used to be Tracy’s Station an automotive service shop. Tracy was like a grandfather to me in some ways and he mentored me back in the late 90’s through a transmission replacement as well as a number of other truck engine repairs. I was never a motorhead and I was seeking to fill a void of technological incompetence and he took me under his wing. Only once did he actual do anything himself on my truck, it was after i lost a cylinder and replaced a lifter and he threw on his coveralls and tightened it down just right amount. Something you just had to have the right touch for. I told him how thankful I was and he put his hand on my shoulder and said “Son sometimes the lord smiles on us.” When I moved to Montana I asked him if he thought that truck would make it out there and he looked right at me and said “Son don’t be afraid to drive that truck. Drive the hell out of it.” I mailed him a post card once I got into Montana. A couple years later when I make bed back to Wilmington I visited him and he had the post card on the wall in his office. A couple of years after that he was diagnosed with terminal cancer and rather than die a slow death of chemo and what not, he decided to take his own life, right there in the office of his shop. He is missed.

We then ran around by the Greenfield Grind and around the lake up to Ice Cube Studios then up 8th to Castle and back to the flag.

Yep. Doing parking garage tours this morn!

Parking garage 1 at the apts across from cotton exchange: 10 merkins, 10 air squats, then sprint up the ramp and mosey to next rinse and repeat up the deck. Mosey on down to an atrium staircase area and do 7’s with burpees and lbcs. Ran into @southie and @tomsawyer ruckin their Ruckie rucks! Looked like good times. When complete, mosey to CFCC parking garage 1 and encounter swamp/sewer gas in prodigious amounts and crazy traffic for the morning. No funsy fun, so ran over to the Hilton parking deck…….much gooder! So in the spirit of running around and doing stuff…..do ladder workout…..10 merkins and 0-10-20-30-40-50 air squats at the bottom and top of each ramp. When complete, a little pliofunfun, then mosey to the waterfront and take in the view (and more swamp gas) to 50 ssh. Mosey back to AO.

Oooo, what a morning to be a Bro!?! Poseidon's Playground had a Brotastic aroma this morning.... some may of thought it was dog doo doo, but they were mistaken.

We warmed up with an array of the following movements:

Seal Clap x 20 5 Burpees OYO Moroccan Nightclub x 20 Mountain Climbers x 10 Merkins x 10 Plank Jacks x 10 The Trident (stretch going from left, to middle, to right leg) x 10 5 Burpees OYO

After all muscles, joints, etc., were loose, we meandered to Stone Street and onto the beach. Here, partnerships were formed for some 'Catch Me if You Can'.

PAX 1 would begin running backwards down the beach toward Johnnie Mercer's, PAX 2 would complete 10 Low and Deep Squats, then sprint to catch their partner.

This was a great appetizer to what Brackish had in store. I heard a lot of mumblechatter since the end of the 10-Year about how epic B-Rack's MC skills were, and how awesome the games were for Brolympics. He decided to give us a little sampling, and I have to say, I was disappointed... I expected better

Only kidding, it sucked! We split into teams of 3 and 4, for some relay races.

Relay 1 - PAX held a very high plank, while the last PAX army crawled under, to the front of the line. This continued until we reached the sign. Then, 5 BroDerkins had to be completed for the victory.

Relay 2 - same as the first, but hold low plank in a line, and the last PAX would sideways bear crawl to the front. Again, 5 BroDerkins had to be completed for victory.

If you don't know what a BroDerkin is, you can't afford it.

There was a lot of strange noises, complaining, and a whole lot of togetherness to be had. After completing, we made our way back onto the blacktop.

For brief recovery, PAX completed 10 Gravel Pickers.

To get us back to the AO, we lined up for a flight to be forgotten. An Indian run, but everyone needed to keep arms elevated like an airplane. If any PAX was caught lowering the arms, 5 penalty burpees would be completed by all.

We did switch to surfing man and rollercoaster arms, but we made it back.

The Finale is where the aroma became piercing. We finished with a quick Dora of 100 Bulgarian Lunges, 200 Gas Pumps, 300 Monkey Humpers. Partner 1 did exercise in gazebo at docks. Partner 2 went on dock and did a full send into the beautiful, pristine, clean waters.

We ended in a COT, and thank you to those who opened up and shared. Brackish took us out in Prayer.

Brackish and YHC put a lot of planning and effort into this one, and it paid off.

Stay classy, Kix
