It was a chilly/windy Thursday morning with the temperature hovering in the low 40’s. Khakis welcomed the PAX to F3 -Fitness Fellowship and Faith. This also included the F3 Mission Statement, Disclaimer and Core Principles. He then got right to it with a mosey around the Monuments, Old Glory and down the stairs for warm-o-rama.
Side Straddle Hop 20 IC
Windmills 20 IC
Cherrie Pickers 20 IC
String Rippers 20 IC
Sun gods 10 each direction IC
The PAX separated into 2 groups.
Group #1 ran up the stairs stopping at every level for the obligatory burpee, then around Old Glory and back down the stairs making sure to stop at each level for a burpee. The PAX was to Al Gore until the Six was in, but a few over-achievers (No Doze and Ponzi) ran back up the stairs to help bring The Six with them.
Meanwhile Group #2 – 20 Derkins on Down and Copperhead Squats 20 (IC) Al Gore until #1’s Six was in. Then they jumped up and made the run up the stairs round the monuments and back down, not forgetting to do burpees at each level (Khakis – was promptly reprimanded when he forgot to do his burpee at one of the levels) I believe he made up for it with 2 at the next level. There was some mumble chatter about “If you can’t Q it don’t do it” – it only fueled his fire. Group #2 did 20 Derkins and 20 Copperhead Squats – many planking until the return of Group 1.

The PAX counted off to 17 and then Khakis went through the
Nam-O-Rama with no hitches accept he almost forgot Tater Tot…how you can forget Tater Tot we will never know. He quickly corrected his mistake and Tater Tot AKA Achilles was accounted for.
Announcements include the upcoming CSAUP on May 19th (6.5 miles with 3 stops for boot camp style workouts) Starts at Memorial Park at 6 am and ends at Paradise Bakery – see Twitter for more details. Major prayers went out to and for Honey Stinger and Honey Badger as their mother and their family is embarking on a battle against serious illness. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers. We love you guys!
Khakis then concluded the COT with a short devotion on the value of TODAY – not yesterday or tomorrow. While it is important to know where we have been to help us where we are going what we can control is where we are at TODAY. Amen
Finally, there was the controversial naming of FNG Zack Packett. While Zack gave us several topics to choose from and a multitude of names were thrown out there – Khakis settled on Smile Aisle for his job with Hy-Vee….and that was that, so we thought. A late entry of Frown Town was thrown out there in typical F3 fashion for the opposite connotation. The debate continued at coffeteria even including a vote with Khakis making the final decision in the backblast – we would all like to give a big F3 Welcome to Smile Aisle.
