We gathered and prepared to start at 0700 the faithful time, when we spotted some wayward Pax blazing into the parking lot in his wife’s new bird killer -Yukon/Suburban-….so we moseyed. Turned out to be Airball who quickly caught up as we headed for the football stadium, accompanied by cries for “What about the mission statement??” ‘The mission of F3 is to start at 7 AM on Saturdays!” 🙂
Upon reaching the track at the S end of the football field/endzone area, I was instructed by Wicked that the place to Warm-O was on the blacktop -rectangular vs half moon shaped, so I complied and we moved to the paved rectangle area where I announced “the first exercise is…pause….”DON’T DO SSH’S! some bosey pax yelled….. “Side Stradle Hops!” NOTE: Also Blackswan joined us by then.

Great day. Weather was nice, we had ice on the field early. Everybody pushed hard, and stayed mostly together. Lots of good mumble chatter and banter. Everybody loved my 90’s nylon shorts. Ha! Honored to be with you men. Great to have Big Worm with us! AYE!
