Pre-Thang: The PAX did a short mosey over to the glorious Lake Z bathroom shelter. Here they were confused on the muddy instructions of holding a squat against the wall as a coupon was passed around to each member to do 2 overhead presses then pass the coupon to the next person. We did one rocky Balls to the Wall with a 45 count that stalled out around 13 and after a while we called it good. We then headed to the grassy knoll roundabout to prepare for the Thang.
Pax did a version of the Longest Mile with 4 Stations around the Roundabout. (about 100 meets apart. (So a full circle would be 400M)
Station 1. Table Jumps -15
Station 2. Burpees -15
Station 3. V-Ups (or big boy sit ups) 15
Station 4. Merkins -15
Picked a partner and worked through the stations together. Most groups made it 3 completions so ¾ of a mile. Until Omaha was called.
American Hammers – 27 IC
Blades of Glory Shared about how 4 years ago he made a spectacular diving ultimate frisbee touchdown catch on the same field. However this lead to a broken collar bone and 2 cracked ribs and time to think. 4 months later he ran the good life ½ marathon and Thanksgiving Sold home to move to the Dominican Republic for a time.
Related this to his divorce (a Broken bone) for now and the pain is awful but it to shall pass. The only way is though and thankful to have a community like F3 so not alone in Isolation.
Prayer: Covid also was a break in our lives for most of us and caused us to go a different direction. But God is the Great physician and is the ultimate Healer.
-(Blades of Glory) did another Rookie mistake and tried to go straight of of twitter account instead of video thus leading to a none existing name o rama but Mufasa did a at office version.
– Tonight Show closed with a prayer
