Mister Rogers’s Neighborhood

I was talking with another PAX recently, and we talked about the relative few routes at The Pub, and I realized I had a Q coming up, so I should come up with a new route.  I was looking for something to have the same kick in the last mile of the down-and-back to Martha’s without being a down-and-back.  So the Mister Rogers route was born.  A 3-ish mile loop in Huntington Forest and a 2-ish mile loop up through Colony Woods.  We even have a way to make it shorter and still loopy for those over a 9-minute pace by going into Hoffman Place instead of Colony Woods.

Warnings were voiced that it was too complicated and too many turns, but enough guys knew the area that no PAX were lost in the inaugural Mister Rogers route.

Strong work by all.

Impact and Influence

1 runner and 6 ruckers showed for the Sunday version of F3. It was a perfect morning for some fast times (at least for YHC) and an adventure route with the ruckers. All returned safely and benefited greatly from the effort.

In our Q Source discussion, we covered Impact again and what it means to be a HIM who works to help Survivors and Sad Clowns to generate movement to advantage. The unavoidable factor in moving these men is that it takes proximity to ensure effective results.

After getting through that topic pretty quickly, we moved on to Influence and how the HIM must use different tactics than just his own effort and desire to generate movement. The targets of our Influence must want to move themselves with the help of the HIM. Without their own motivation, no benefit can occur.

Announcements: 2nd F lunch June 15th at Twisted Goat in Cramerton, F3 Dads on the 18th at Folsom, PT Test 25th at Gashouse
