A handful showed for EC, mostly runners.  0730, let’s go.  Begin with the mission of F3, to plant grow and serve small workout groups for men, for the invigoration male community leadership.  Pledge.  Warm up of SSH, IW, arm cirlces, burpees, gravel pickers, and some stretches.  SA found a set key, anyone lose theirs?

Head down to the pavilion with no cover.  Find a picnic table.  Step ups, derkins and dips.  Start with 20 each leg, 15 derkins, 10 dips.  Run to flag and back after completed.  Increase all by 5, another round.  Increase by 5 again for 30, 25, and 20.  One more round but decrease by 5.   That gives 100 step ups, 80 derkins, 60 dips.

Head to the tennis courts.  Figure 8s.  Bear crawl base line of two courts, up sideline to net, across at net of two courts, up side line to back line, across two courts, down sideline, across nets again, down sideline back to start.  At each corner (turn) 5 burpees.  40 burpees total.  One more round with lunge walk and diamond merkins.

Good work men.

Fellowship mosey outside of courts.  Do hard things.  Tough workout to this point, but YHC calls for a sprint to the flag.  Tough thing to do  when you r tired and not expecting it.

Enough time for a little mary.


YHC told story of Carlos Hathcock, highly regarded Marine sniper from Vietnam era.  Perhaps the most highly regarded Marine sniper.  But early in his first deployment, he had a tough time including a night when he didn’t think he could he go on.  He devised a plan to dig a hole deep enough to insert his leg.  He was then going to drop a hand grenade in the whole to maim his leg so he wouldn’t have to home.  He began digging the whole at dusk.  Worked through the night.  Once the hole was deep enough, the sun began to rise.  He realized that he had made it through the night, and had the realization that maybe he did have what it takes to keep pushin.  Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right.
