GasHouse Back Blast- Surprise Gifts and A Run Through The Jungle

#GasHouse was filled with gift giving, a lovely scenic run, some twitter facts about one of the PAX, and VQ’s.

  • The PAX were surprised to receive gifts this morning, but all faces turned from pure joy to displeasure as they came upon 15 cinder blocks.  The look quickly turned to determination as all PAX conquered the cinder block portion of our workout.
  • The PAX were also excited for a scenic run that eventually turned into an Indian Run that seemed to last forever….I believe we would still be running if someone didn’t let an unnamed FNG know that they had to sprint to the front of the line.
  • During the COT we learned that Godfather was an ailurophile (Thanks Twitter)….I’ll save you the time looking it up… he loves cats and all things related to cats.
  • BA and Joe Boo had their VQ’s today.

PREBLAST – F3 Davis Lake!

Men of F3 Nation,

Like the detached arm of a starfish that then regrows into its own, @F3Nation will soon be growing a bit stronger. @F3MECA is launching a new AO in the Davis Lake area!  Come be a part of the inaugural workout of @F3 Davis Lake!

When:  Saturday, May 30, 2015 at 7am sharp

Where:  Davis Lake Clubhouse, 9000 Davis Lake Pkwy, Charlotte, NC 28269.  Park in lot behind the pool.

No prior training is required and the workouts are designed to keep all fitness levels challenged.  If you are hesitant because you think you need to workout to be ready to post, any F3 man will tell you that the only thing that will get you ready to post…is to post.

Post workout, we will gather at the Davis Lake Chick-Fil-A for coffee and fellowship.

Please forward to your friends, family, co-workers, neighbors, etc.  Our only requirement is that you are male and you need it (we all need it).  All you need to bring is a willingness to try something new and challenging.

Local Qs, if you are interested in leading a workout, we are starting with Tues, Thurs., and Saturday bootcamps.  Sign up here:

Please email any questions to and follow us on Twitter for updates @F3DavisLake.

We look forward to seeing on you the gloom!

The Farm
