So first, this was supposed to be a FNG-friendly workout as we had several new members of the Pax who joined us as FNG’s yesterday at the workout led by Dredd and Swiper. Dredd had asked us to keep the intensity to a moderate level, but Sauerkraut was having none of that. In fact, at lunch he kept defending himself with the line, “That’s nothing compared to what we do at Bastion.” Yeah, probably true, but the Blue Ridge Assembly site is essentially one big hill with almost no level ground and at altitude higher than most of us flatlanders are used to, Kraut.

Of course, it didn’t help that after hearing what YHC had planned for the first half of the workout, that Kraut had to call an audible and change his attack plan 5 minutes before launch. So Kraut ran the pax around, and around, and around, and around, the Assembly site trying to find the ideal locations for his doses of #downPainment.

T-claps to Hercules, a 60+ year old former flight surgeon who flew on the C-130.
And t-claps to all the JFG guys who had never been to an F3 workout until this weekend. We hope that you got a good taste of what has the rest of us so addicted. We look forward to seeing you guys in the Gloom!

And special t-claps to Davis “The Lizard” Kuykendall, Ken Schultz, and Chip Cash with Search Ministries for inviting us to Search’s 2013 Bootcamp. It was a great blessing to be amongst so many awesome men of God – young and old.

Aye Brother. After Seal Claps I felt that I had to step up and drive that nail home. We mostly sit around in a circle singing Kumbaya at Bastion. We would love to have you one morning.

Nice work on the post. Fantastic weekend. Fantastic setting and fantastic delivery of all three F’s. Search Bootcamp is the real deal and I am blessed to have been invited to participate and interact with you Men.

T-Claps all around.

Hmmmm. Just read this blast again SW. I think you may have blacked out a couple of times during my part of the workout. We are missing a couple of my favs in here but I guess if I made Jimmer half splash I could have made you black out. #mydadsellsrealestatewithhispartner

Jimmer here. Still sore thanks to SauerK’s sauer idea of layering cake on top of my broken body Sunday circa 0710. Half splash, I did not. Unless that’s what you call spitting. IDK, F3 has all kinds weird terms. I am still catching on. I appreciated it though and will (definitely maybe) be back in your company soon. Thanks for Q’ing.

Most notable missing from the moleskin was the Swiper impression of Jane Fonda during the SealJacks. TClaps for Skywalker to be able to laugh in cadence.

And that was no FNG friendly workout as the dry-merlot proved later.

Solid weekend of the 3Fs brothers.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
