The Storm 5/17/22

Big EC crowd this morning, at least 7 or 8.  Also had an FNG join us.  0530 hits, time to go.  Pledge.  Short reminder of the mission of F3, and quick word about the choices we get to make.

Warmup of SSH, a few burpees and some stretching.  Mosey around parking lot and stop at school entrance.

Escalator is called.  10 burpees, 20 hand release merkins, 30 flying squirrels, 40 step ups, 50 lbc.  Take a lap around the parking lot.  See how many rounds we can do.

Just before the end, one more hard thing, sprint to the flag for COT

Another quick word about choice.  The choices we make make us into what we are.  If we work hard and give our all in these workouts, we are more likely to carry that into our day giving our best in all that we do.  We talked also about the fact that some guys don’t have the choice to be out there right now.

Turtleman facing a medical procedure that will keep him isolated from most people the next four weeks.  Whooppee encouraging PAX to write a letter to him.  Leave no man behind.
