Spent 2 weeks over preparing while also recruiting as many PAX as I could for the big day! Love all the chatter on the preblast! Big shout out to the support I got leading up to it – @c-bus, @big gong, @putt-putt, @aladdin!! Thank you!

There was a buzz in the gloom this morning – I could feel it! And we got two FNGs hooked on F3!!


Jumped right into it with:

-side straddle hops

-spider man mountain climbers


-burpees OYO x5

The Thang

Thang 1: 8 thrusters with a curl and press over the head at the bottom of the hill, Bernie sanders up the hill (these were the favorite of the day), 8 burpees at the top, jog back down and do that in descending count all the way to 1. We cut it a little short to move on to Thang 2.

Thang 2: Dora – 100 surrenders (all you gotta do is standup), 200 mountain climbers (each leg is a half), 300 LBCs while the other partner rifle carried over to the bridge by the cafe and did 10 lat pulls on the side of the bridge, rifle carry back.

Thang 3: lined up in plank starting at the sidewalk, toward the hill, and the first guy picked up his coupon and carried it to the end of the line, each PAX followed one by one until we got to the top of the hill.

Ended with power sit-ups, american hammers, and plank!

thanks @putt-putt for picking up my 6! And for on-site coffeteria!

Circle of Trust

Shared a story about realizing it’s okay to over prepare but do it for the right reasons – so you can tell yourself you did your best and that’s good enough, not doing it for the external accolades. And if you haven’t Q’d, get that VQ!!!! You’ll grow and learn and push yourself outside your comfort zone!!!

Naked Man Moleskin

Can’t thank everyone enough for all the support! When you get 31 PAX out, it’s a lot of fun!! I’ll take the AAR and apply it to my next Q, especially watching myself in the mirror counting cadence while doing American hammers in my birthday suit! Thanks @big gong!!!!
