My Blockie and Me

THE SCENE:
High 30’s – just that temperature where the tights debate really kicks in. There were hats, sweatshirts, sweatpants, and tights abound. Tomb Raider and Hobo would both take issue with the whole deal.

THA-THANG:
The QIC disclosed that there would not be burpees and there would not be bear crawls, two of my usual hallmarks. This marks the first Q that I haven’t had those two elements since I started F3 in summer 2018. I let the fellas know that we would make our way around the 1 mile track, carrying our CMUs with a rifle carry or farmer carry and doing some work with them along the way.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Sometimes we get caught in our own record player groove of thinking everything we have to deal with, and everything we “don’t get to do anymore”, is a downer. And every so often, something happens to remind us that those very things we have to “deal with” are in fact the very blessings we should be honored to have the opportunity to do and be a part of. I had one of those eye-opening, check-yourself, reframe your perspective moments this week that reminded me that the voice in your head is not always your guide, your friend, or something you should trust. It takes other HIM to help you keep that perspective sometimes and leaving no man behind can often mean calling each other on our own “stuff.” Because we all have our own stuff.

Moleskin:

FNG – Pits rocked it this morning. A Prince Ali EH, he knows him from the jiu-jitsu world and the guy has some gusto.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:
Thanksgiving Convergence at The Berm. Bring your vittles and something to drink on Thursday morning, along with something to serve your item with. Many thanks to Mudpants and Laettner for rallying the troops here for some solid second F.
