17PowderKegPAX posted strong in the gloom to see what YHC would be cooking up!  This special concoction of exercises would push through a growing theme of numbers & patterns on pavement, thru steps, a ring of fire, block pile, picnic shelter, run-a-round the church, moseys with appropriate plank stops to ‘pick up the six’, a potato masher with another plank stop before going through Hill Topper Flutters, a Superman Pose with a countdown for a Jailbreaker to the ShovelFlag with just enough time left for 1MinuteOfMary… Okay, so it was two! YHC knows just how much the PAX of The Powder Keg love Mary! Here’s the skinny for what went down:

It was iron sharpening iron despite seeing lightning, hearing thunder and even feeling raindrops as we closed out with prayer in the Circle of Trust. It is truly an honor to strive toward becoming better men with F3 Brothers who have your back! I look forward to YOUR Q as you step out of your comfort zone with the support of the PAX! See you in the gloom! Gluten, out.
