5/13/21 The Berm Backblast
Getting comfortable feeling uncomfortable
PAX: Thor, Moon Man, Armbar, Panty Hose, Rip Tide, Wait Time, Roadhouse, The Big One, and Italian Job
YHC arrived at The Berm at about 0445 and was greeted by Armbar and Cataracts. Greeting were made and I asked them “if they where ready for a different kinda suck?” To which Armbar replied we’ll have to see.
The two stepped off for a pre-run at 0450 and left me alone with a beautiful sun rise and the sound of birds chirping in the Gloom setting up cones for our beatdown.
At about 0455 Roadhouse and Italian Job arrived. Greetings were made and YHC gave Roadhouse a hug as I haven’t seen him since his Vision Quest. They stepped off for a pre run and I stepped off for a pre ruck.
There was a lot of mumble chatter pre beatdown talking about Roadhouses Vision Quest and last weeks FNG Lost Boy.
At 0530 YHC welcomed the PAX to F3, gave the mission statement, covered the 5 core principles, and gave the disclaimer.

COT: Getting comfortable being uncomfortable – My M and I will celebrate our 16th wedding anniversary this Saturday. I had a hard time getting comfortable feeling uncomfortable. I had issues trusting and giving of myself after my divorce in 2002. Through growth on my own, a good woman’s love, and F3 I’ve learned to give all I have to give rather than all I felt I had left to give. I’m now comfortable being uncomfortable.
YHC led us out in prayer
