C’mon Folsom

Ok, so here we are heading into winter where the temperatures are not going to be favorable for most to be outside. Well, tough crap, “outside” just happens to be one of the F3 core principles. That being said, Folsom was really lite this morning. Yes it was cold and yes it was slightly rainy. This shouldn’t affect a real HIM from posting. Alright, enough complaining. We have 3 so let’s do this.

mosey to the park entrance for the pledge. “Someone” didn’t bother getting out the fartsack to bring the site shovel flag. That’s cool, we wanted to run a little anyway. Now, mosey back past start to the lower parking lot turd shed.


All PAX balls to the wall. When Q calls, the first PAX bear crawls around the building. Back on the wall then P2 goes, then P3. This wouldve been even better with more participants, but gotta do with what you got. Next, wall seats in the same manner as before as we take turns lunge walking around the building. On our 6 for a little core. LBCs x20 IC, plank jacks x20 IC, Merkins x20 IC. Recover and mosey out to the parking lot. Line up for some triple nickel. 5 burpees sprint half the parking lot for 5 squats, sprint back. Rinse and repeat 5 times. Now turn and line up for Route 66 the rest of the lot with Bobby Hurley’s. Brief recovery then nur up the road until the we get to the turn. Turn around and finish running back to start. 22 for the vets.

YHC took us out

always an honor to Q the legendary Folsom crowd. I just hope the fartsack isn’t quite as strong next time. See you soon in the gloom.

The Number 7

Once Bedpan had reached out for volunteers to Q Downtown a few weeks ago, I was ready to give it a try. Being my VQ there, I wanted to make sure it was worthy of the regular PAX’s approval. There’s a Q that had been used out at Folsom a few times that YHC really liked. I made my own little variation of it to use in the parking deck. I love the parking deck. Folsom needs one, but twice as many levels. Anyway, this particular Q was derived from a story in the Bible. The walls of Jericho. Ok, more of the story will come. It’s 5:30 and a brisk 31 degrees.


SSH, Imperial Walkers, Gravel Pickers: all x 7 IC


Mosey to the parking deck. On the way, PAX discuss the significance of the number 7. Some said, “how many days of the week” some said some unmentionable things, and Clavin says “hey, a Q a while back referenced the number 7 to the Bible.” Yes, ok, God rested on the seventh day of creation. Joshua marched around Jericho once a day for seven days and then 7 times on the seventh day when the walls fell. The number 7 is referenced 735 times in the Bible. Gaston’s says, “hey that’s the number we should use.” Uhmmm, nah, 7 is good. 7 represents physical and spiritual perfection in the Bible. God rested on the seventh day, creation “then” was perfect. There are many other references that would take me way to long to cover, but you guys get the point. Folsom’s Walls of Jericho was performed in the Walmart parking lot, the run part representing the march around Jericho, but around Walmart. Of course Walmart’s walls never fell. Anyway, let’s do it.


7 exercises performed 7 reps each then mosey to the top of the parking deck. Down the stairs and rinse and repeat 7 times. Again, this is a variation using the parking deck. I love this place. Ok, exercises were Burpees, CDDs, Plank Jack Merkins, Hipslappers, Big boys, Mountain Climbers, Squats. Perform 7 reps of each then mosey to the top, down the stairs and repeat 7 times. I’m glad this didn’t cause the parking deck to fall because I love this place. QIC called for all to stay together as best as possible. After all, what good is the army not working as a unit? After 7 rounds were finished, PAX moseyed back to start. With a few minutes left, finish up with some Mary. Bedpan calls Freddie Mercs, Clavin calls Flutters, Gastone calls crunchy frogs, Island wanted some more Flutters, Breaker called American Hammers, Anthrax calls out windshield wipers, YHC finished out with 22 for the vets.

Prayer requests: Allen Tate’s Mom n Law, Breaker’s Mom, BedPan M, each other and our families

YHC took us out in prayer

It was an honor to Q downtown this AM. This AO is awesome due to all the options available. Especially the parking deck,  I love that place. I encourage all to branch out and grab a Q somewhere different on occasion. Like myself, I know it can be difficult due to personal schedules. Anyway, as far as the number 7, the reason it’s used so many times is because it represents what is perfect! The Word of God is Perfect. None of us are perfect or ever will be, but thanks to our Perfect God, we don’t have to be. Thanks to God, he sent His Perfect Son as a sacrifice to save us. Let that sink in, A Perfect God, A Perfect Son sacrificed for a non deserving world. Now that is Love. Perfect Love. (Coincidence that there were 7 PAX this AM?)
