Q: Roll Bar
The normally pitch dark Wild Kingdom gloom was brightly lit by a predawn moon, Rollbar welcomed his brothers to the morning, shared the mission of F3, gave the disclaimer, and told the gathered PAX that like many Rollbar workout this one would be short on running but loaded with pain!
A short mosey to the one and only lamp post for Warm-o-Rama, we’re still looking for The Plague’s alleged parking structure…

Hump Day Happy Hour tomorrow @ The Inner Rail, 7:00pm
Rollbar reminded the PAX that we all face things day to day that can become an internal battle, whether that’s work stress, family health, family tensions or personal demons. But we don’t have to fight those battles alone, much like the teams we shared in the workout there are men in this group to stand beside you in the mental battlefield. Lock shields with your brothers, the battle is easier with other warriors by your side! Go forth and seize the day knowing your brothers are with you !
An aside that YHC thought of on the way home: Let’s share our victories with our brothers so they can celebrate with us! Seeing my brothers joys encourages me SO much! Doing life together is a great thing!
