8 PAX: Harding, Double Dip, G-String, Jackson 5, Beans, Amadeus, Rayban, Bobsled
QIC: Bobsled (Weeeeee)
G & Bobsled took off on a ruck. Double Dip & Rayban pre-running. Ran into Amadeus on the ruck and made him turn around, twice. Ruck got cut short because G forgot something at home. What a terrible Site Q.
0515 Welcome: Bobsled welcomed everyone to the Mt Olympus and F3 (Fitness, Fellowship, and Faith), recited the Mission Statement, Credo and 5 Core Principals. There were no FNGs unfortunately. Bobsled reminded everyone to modify as necessary as he is not a professional. There is a real risk of injury.

COT: Everything’s Gonna Be Alright
My playlist, which I forgot to start until 20 minutes in, was all Bob Marley. Marley was more than a Reggae artist, he was an idealist. His idea was that you could literally heal the world of Racism and Hate by injecting Music and Love into people’s lives. Couple days before a peace rally (Smile Jamaica Concert) performance he was gunned down in his home. Seven gunmen shot Marley in the chest and arm. Marley’s wife, Rita, was shot in the head in her car in the driveway. Two days later he walked on stage and performed. When asked why he said the people who are trying to make this world a worse place aren’t taking any days off. How can I? Light in the darkness. I challenge myself and the PAX to be a light in the darkness this week – Aye Bobsled
