Preblast for the Week of 12/9/19

Highlights:  Last week was HUGE – King of the Bluff drama and lots of PAX participating in the St. Jude Marathon weekend. Let’s keep things going! Get your Grinch on at the Barracks (Tue); Blazing Saddle (Wed); or Arcadia (Fri). Q School at Bermuda Triangle on Wednesday. Three VQs: Brutus (Thu, Blazing Saddle), Double Dare (Thu, Lair), and Big Green (Fri, Annex). Get your ruck miles in for the December challenge, and plan to bring your whole family to the F3/FiA workout on 12/21, FOR GOODNESS’ SAKE!

December Fitness Challenge:
Zima (Neverland AOQ) is challenging you to ruck some miles this month. There are gold, silver, and bronze commitment levels. Pick a stretch goal. If you want to record your progress, do it here. Keep an eye out for the 2020 Equinox Challenge starting January 1st.

The Grinch Returns!
Opportunities this week at the Barracks (Tue), Blazing Saddle (Wed), and Arcadia (Fri). Complete this with a group or do it on your own.

Memphis Ruck Club Events, 12/14:
11 AM – Wreaths Across America. Place wreaths at Memphis National Cemetery.
2-4 PM – Santa Ruck & December Ruck Club Call-Out. 3 mile ruck starting at Appling Middle bringing donations to Youth Villages.

F3/FiA Holiday 2.0 Workout, 12/21, 8-9 AM, The Mothership:
Mark your calendars for a co-ed family workout (cover up those thighs!). A conglomerate of F3 and FiA PAX will be leading the workout. New kids will get named. New adults will not. Save your crying for someone who cares! Just bring yourself, your wife, your kids, your neighbors, their kids, and er’body else! This is a great opportunity to headlock those fartsackin’ FiA dads! Extended coffeeteria to follow.

New Website:
Be sure to check out our new website! Backblasts are now easier to enter via web form, rather than the clunky WordPress editor. Also, review our Events Calendar for upcoming 1st, 2nd, and 3rd F events.

2020 CSAUP Events:
Completely Stupid And Utterly Pointless! Be on the lookout for several opportunities in 2020 to do some difficult and rewarding fitness events with your F3 brothers. Relay teams for the Big Buffalo 50 in March will be forming soon. The Half Ironman is in October. F3 Nation is working on a new type of GrowRuck event that will probably be coming to a city near us, date and location TBD. Finally, there are rumors of an F3 Tennessee convergence somewhere in the middle of the state.
