Light Mosey to the Track
The Thang: The Anvil
Set up inside Track for the Anvil.
After each set, each group moseys around the workout perimeter and returns to their initial corner. Repetitions build from the top to the bottom of the list, so first time through is 5 Burpees and Mosey, second time through is 10 Merkins, 5 Burpees, and Mosey, and so on…Ultimately we didn’t quite get through it all, but we came close and everyone was appreciative when Omaha was called as the morning sun was rising.
5 Burpees (D)
10 Merkins (D)
15 LBC (IC)
20 Alternating Lunges (IC)
25 Mtn Climbers (IC)
30 Second Plank
35 American Hammers (IC)
40 Side Straddle Hops (IC)
45 Big Boy Sit-ups (U)

6MOM: American Hammers: Rancid Style for Count…the PAX thought we had already done enough core.
FNGs Brett (a dentist) was EH’d by Grillz and Davinci and was quickly and efficiently named T-Bone, a name that seemed agreeable to him. He immediately vocalized how impressed he was with the overwhelming positivity of the group!!! I bet we see him again!
Nugent Flag Pass:
Patton was proud and honored to pass the Nugent flag to Oracle Site Q Cheap Seats, an exceptional HIM.
COT I used this COT as an opportunity to reflect upon and give thanks for the past year, my first within F3 (First Post Anniversary April 15), and my upcoming milestone birthday (40 years on April 18). The positivity immediately realized by FNG T-Bone is real. It is infectious. It is extremely special. I feel it every day I post. I’m inspired by the young guys, the 40 somethings, the Respect guys, and especially the Double Respect guys. I feel great today and am physically in better shape than I can remember, but because of them and all of F3 Omaha I know I can keep accelerating all three Fs. God willing I’m looking forward to earning my Respect a decade from now, and maybe my Double Respect if Sky Q sees fit.
GTA eloquently prayed us out, like only he does.
Thank you all for the opportunity to lead. – Stitches
