YHC welcomed eveybody to F3 at 05:30,  said the disclaimer, then delivered the mission statement, 5 core principles and credo while moseying around the park so we didn’t linger in the cold.

After the one lap we gathered at the swingset for…

Warm-o-rama:

15 Goofballs IC

12 Abe Vigodas IC

10 Tappy Taps IC

We then counted off into teams of 3.

The Thang:

A 3 man grinder.  2 stations on opposite sides (N&S) of the field.  Exercises were AMRAP until pushed.

Station 1:

Goblet Squats

Overhead Tricep Extensions

Arnold Press

Bent Over Rows

Squat Thrusts

Skull Crushers

Station 2:

Curls for the Girls

Merkins

Weighted Lunges

Kettleball Swings

Deadlifts

Burpees

Omaha was called at 6:07

We did one round of American Hammers (Rancid style) then fumbled into Name-O-Rama.

Prayers and Announcements:

COT:

My COT was inspired by Drone Strike’s COT from last January.  He spoke of he and his wifes struggles with infertility.

I could relate to his message, 100%.

My wife and I went through the same struggles about 7 or 8 years ago.  It was fun for a while but then we became miserable. Our home life suffered.  I had  changed.  I began to snap at people and resent peoples successes because of our [what we saw then as]  failure.  I quit talking to some friends,  and just became quite an a**hole.

We then started exploring the adoption process.  After almost a year of waiting we were picked for placement of the adoption of our beautiful daughter.

Shortly after, our friends (even the ones I quit talking to) reached out to congratulate us.

I am especially grateful for the friends I abandoned. They could’ve just not done anything, but they decided to forgive me. That is the message, FORGIVE. Never abandon a friend and forgive one another.

Sportiva took us out in prayer.

Aye,

Edison
