I snagged my normal once a month Q at Folsom it happened to be the 22. I didn’t know the significance of the date then. Later Gearwrench informed me Folsoms 8 year anniversary was the 23. So I decided to celebrate folsoms birthday during my Q with Ponyboys blessing of course. Folsom is my home AO so I wanted to do this right. So I had the thought to reach out to past site Q’s to see what they’d like included in the workout to commemorate their time as site Q. I suggested a location,exercise,routine,or certain type of coupon. All replied with some good material. So all I had to do was figure out the details of how to squeeze everything into a 45 minute Q. So this is how that played out. We started without a proper warmup much to my dismay no time for that we warmed up with Wichita’s suggestion of 80 burpees in 8 minutes he really suggested 100 in 10 but I liked 8 better 😁.Everyone loves burpees at Folsom it’s in our DNA they groan but it’s just a cover up. Next up was Huckleberry’s suggestion Australian mtn climbers and rocky balboas at the amphitheater 3 sets of 8. Next we ran to the horse track Montross wanted to do some running 🤷‍♂️.There we did Balljoints thing rows and dips 3 sets 8 reps. Then ran to the block pile for sparkys 2 cents Blockees KB swings and curls 3 sets 8 reps. Next to the hill y’all know the one it’s killed anyone’s enthusiasm that’s ever done any work on it. This was Gearwrench and Ponyboys idea we ran it once short on time. Had to get to the tennis court for Freights pick route 36 merkins. Times up we didn’t have time to grind on anything but we covered a lot of ground and included all 8 Q’s ideas. Technically Freight wasn’t a site Q but he helped get things started and I wanted him included. Almost forgot we did a burden carry through it all took turns carrying a 35 pound bag of corn. Big pappy suggestion 👍. At first Pappy said no exercises stood out in his memory it was the relationships he built that he remembered. Which captures the essence Folsom. F3 for that matter it’s not just a workout. Which is part of why Folsom is so important to me. I told the guys I’ve been in F3 for about 4 years now and have gotten better physically but also as a man because of the fine men of F3 mostly at Folsom they come and go but leave there mark. I shared the verse Proverbs 27:17 as iron sharpens iron so one man sharpens another. This has happened at Folsom for me and many others I assume. So thanks to everyone that has contributed to keeping Folsom going the past 8 years I hope it continues to sharpen men for years to come. Bearded truck driving burpee doing crap talking solid strong Godly men that leave there mark.💪🏻
