Lucky Charms Irish act of Savagery

Welcomed 9 other PAX (keeping the groups to 10 or less). Tried to keep an Irish brogue for as long as possible. I made it through Warm-a-rama- Welcome to F3- We are here to plant, serve & grow small workout groups for the invigoration of male community leadership- Free. Open to all men. Held Outdoors. Lead on a rotating basis. End in a COT.- Not a professional, adapt as needed

The Thang – Starting at the bottom of the hill, one partner begins an exercise (some moving) around the inside loop of the sidewalk. The other partner runs up the hill, stands on the wall and comes back to meet his partner wherever he stops. When the runner taps you out, stand up, do a heal kick and begin your run. Each partner will complete the following exercises once each before moving to the next exercise.  o Lungeso Carolina Dry Dockso Lungeso Carolina Dry Docks- After one time around, regroup at the bottom of the hill.

COT 

A non-Irish (likely Scottish man), who was kidnapped by Pirates and sold into slavery. This man became a missionary in Ireland. He became a symbol for hope for an entire country and a symbol of Christianity. Pretty meaningful person for a group like ours.  

To me, here are a few things to ponder today:- We celebrate a man who dedicated his life to service. He worked in the country that enslaved him years before. We are called to do the same. – In Ireland, this date is normally a day for family. Celebrate your loved ones. There may be whiskey, but it’s to celebrate those around us, not down a 1/5th of Jameson. – So go out. Be of service to your family, especially in these difficult times. Celebrate the times we get to be around our families as closely as we do right now. Count your blessings. Slainte!
