Practice for the Padre Challenge

  • Workout Date - 05/22/2018
  • Q In Charge - Benign
  • The PAX - Tickler, Fred, NYOPT, Cocoon, Flo, Mary, WiFi, YHC
  • AO - Golden Strip

Earlier this month Padre proposed a challenge wherein PAX commit to doing 5000 merkins, 5000 BBSUs, and 50 miles of running in the month of June.  Everybody realizes that this is a really dumb idea, but a lot of PAX have HC’ed anyway.  This means that each participant will need to average 167 merkins, 167 BBSUs, and 1.67 miles per day.  This is definitely harder than it sounds.  Because YHC cares about his PAX, today’s workout was designed as a dress rehearsal for June 1.

Conditions: 68 degrees, gloomy, humid

Mission: The mission of F3 is to plant, grow, and serve men’s small workout groups for the invigoration of male community leadership.

Disclaimer: Today’s workout reeks of a lack of professionalism.
