It has been 1 year since I first showed up at Powder Keg in the rain on a cold December morning not knowing what was in store for me and knowing no one. Little did I know some crazy guy named Seal was leading the workout that morning and had an evil plan to punish those who decided to get out the bed to better themselves that morning. To Commemorate that day one year ago, I decided to repeat that same brutal workout. This decision was two-fold. One to punish those who were not in attendance that day and missed out, and two to gauge my improvement over the past year. Remarkably, after enduring this workout on a cold, rainy December day, I decided to come back for more. I enjoyed it so much, I even convinced 6 other guys to join in the fun throughout this past year. I can say that this workout still sucked just as bad as it did a year ago, but the pain was much more bearable and instead of being at the back of the PAX I was second, behind Seal. For those of you just beginning this journey, hang in there. It doesn’t get easier, you just get better and you feel less likely to spill Merlot (most days).
Last year it was cold and rainy and we had 8 PAX. This year, it was 64 degrees and wet and 18 total PAX were in attendance. Lucky for me, we did have a FNG show up this morning. Hopefully he, like me will be hooked and will continue to come back and he will continue this same workout tradition next year this time.

YHC noted that several of the PAX were walking between the merkins and burpees, this was a good indication of the suck they were enduring 🙂

-Pitchfork doing convergence here in Simpsonville on Jan. 1st

-Need Q’s to step up, calendar is still down, so get with Brown Shorts if you want to Q. Remember one of the goals of F3 is to foster male leadership, so time to step up and lead if you haven’t done so or haven’t done so in a while.
