YHC choose a workout called “The Gross”. The workout consisted of 12 exercises with 12 reps and then running 1 Lap. The hope was to reach 12 laps. 144 reps = Gross Multiple pax got to pick an exercise. The PAX ended with 12 laps and 3+ miles. The field and track at Kiewit apparently do not get much sun and there was still lots of ice and snow present. The footing was not perfect, but everyone survived with no stumbles.

I discussed how 01-30-17 was a significant day in my life as I was involved in an officer involved shooting on that day. I shared the details of the incident and having dealt with PTSD afterwards. As I type this, our department has experienced two officer involved shootings this week. I was also one of the first officers arriving at the active shooter at the Target store. These new incidents always bring a flood of emotions and add in the anniversary of my shooting and it could be easy to be overwhelmed by emotions. The week o’ Farva is my way of ensuring I will have support and be around my brothers during a week that is always difficult for me. Exercise has always been what has helped me deal with stress and anxiety and this group has truly been life savings so I am thankful for all of you. That incident, even though very difficult, lead me to many positive changes I needed to make in my life. One of those being F3 and not isolating myself with my thoughts and feelings. Being able to share things with the group has been truly beneficial mentally and the physical stuff is the added bonus for me. Lean into this group, be venerable, and share your heart because this group can help in so many ways.
