Well I've been waiting for this moment for all my life

15 men gathered at Hurricane Alley to celebrate YHCs 1 year F3 anniversary.  Conditions – A cold 27 degrees and clear skies.  Using the F3 Exicon, Hurricane Alley will be treated to some new exercises this morning.  Here’s what went down:

SSH x 32

Merkins x 32 OYO (Both to celebrate BOGO’s birthday since I stole his Q spot – thanks brother!)

The Chinook x 15

Frankensteins x 10

The Thang:

Double-line Indian run around the track to warm up

We moseyed down to the lower football practice field where cones were setup 100 feet apart.  The PAX didn’t realize that the gate was unlocked.  The drill – Wilt Chamberlains – 100 LBCs, run to the other end, 100 squats, run to the other end, 100 dbl count flutters, run to the other end,100 single count lunges.

There were tires laying around needing some love.  In groups of three, one man on each end of the cones doing air presses while one flipped the tire 100 feet.  Some were unlucky in picking their tire selection and paid for it.

We followed this by doing In the Plank Tonight with Phil Collins playing “In the Air Tonight” for an eternity.  The PAX altered between planks and chilcutts. #abburnermumblechatter

Shake those arms out for our final exercise – the Wave of Merkins – everyone planks while we revolve around the circle escalating the merkin count.  Time only allowed us to make it to 8 to many’s delight.


It was great to see all the men, and especially some that made a special effort to be here – Flow Rider, Stem Cell and Youkilis.

YHC shared with the Pax what F3 has meant to him, and how YHC came into F3 for improving his health.  The selfish purpose evolved into less about physical fitness and more to serve and reach out to others, strengthening faith, building relationships, and accountability in each other.  The bonds with these men and our faith in Christ are strong and continuously growing stronger, and that’s why we keep coming back for more.  There are many others in this community that need a group like F3.  We must seek them out and bring them in.

Announcements: Dream Center 5K on Dec 10th, Thanksgiving Convergence at Legacy 0700 on 11/24

Prayers : one of our F3 Clemson brother is dealing with some depression, Clarinet’s great aunt dealing with some deteriorating health, Prayers for Slug’s wife and kids in dealing with Slug leaving in December for Navy Reserve training, Al Borland dealing with some illness
