Q: The Plague

As the 15 PAX arrived they were offered bug spray as they walked through the thick morning air. The Plague welcomed PAX to The Woodshed. Explained the mission of F3 and reminded PAX that The Plague is not a professional so they need to be safe and modify exercises as needed. One FNG was noted among the crowd and he was eager to get started with his first F3 beatdown.

Short mosey to the field led the PAX to warm-a-rama

    • In order to be effective we can’t measure our success in “Mic Drop” moments that impress other people
    • We must find metrics that reflect our true virtues and impact our Concentrica
