Community Foundation Pain Lab

Community Foundation Pain Lab

T-Square came up with a genius idea to move Pain Lab downtown Gastonia at the Speed for Need tent on Saturday morning. I saw the tweet late Friday night but threw it out there anyways letting the PAX know we would redirect to Rotary Pavilion at 7:15AM. This would allow me a few extra minutes to meet anyone that showed up at the Schiele and have them follow me downtown. That said T-Square rounded up the troops downtown and I met Moses and Billy Madison at the Scheile and automobile moseyed to the Rotary Pavilion. The scene was jumping early downtown. Everyone was getting their tents setup and Speed for Need were unloading the chariots. We decided to setup Pain Lab in the grass in front of center stage near the Speed for Need tent.

The thang:

Painopoly of course! I mean, why not? This is a great workout and does not require hours of planning a weinke. It is all on the game board. We did 45 minutes of it and we all finished stronger, sweatier and smellier by the end.

Pain Lab Downtown

There were 5 total PAX and about a quarter of the way through a young boy that had been looking on decided to join us for some kettlebell fun. He did all of the exercises we landed on and with vigor. Good kid with good spirits. Wish he could have stayed for the entirety but he had to go find his family so did not get a chance to name this wonderful 2.0.

Announcements:

Duh, Community Foundation Run in about 30 minutes

YHC took us out in prayer

The one thing I can say is F3 and Speed for Need got some wonderful exposure. We had a lot of curious on-lookers, some asked questions about F3 and Speed for Need in which we directed these folks to the tent. I hope that our Nantan did a good job explaining things. If there is one thing of purpose we fulfilled by doing Pain Lab downtown it was Plant. We planted the seed of what F3 is about.

Tube, good to see you out here brother!! Thank all of you men for taking a detour from the normal Pain Lab spot, it was greatly appreciated. You all pushed hard, even though it may have been uncomfortable doing these exercises in front of a bunch of complete strangers. However, know this, if there is one thing that has helped me since joining this group it is how to step out of your comfort zone and face challenges you may never have.

Until next time,

HIPAA

AYE!
