Awesome to see such strong representation and participation from F3 Memphis at the St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend races! It was a great time for a great cause!

If you follow F3 Memphis on social media ( or Instagram), be sure to check out the PAX highlights posted there. Sharing these stories is another way to get the word out about F3 Memphis and potentially stir up some sad clowns to join us in the Gloom! If you are willing to share your F3 story on social media, DM Boudreaux.

Highlights for this week:
KOTB for December runs Sunday (Dec 4) through Wednesday (Dec 7). If you recall, we started a new KOTB format last month, with the goal of giving every AO some “stake in the game”. The rules are as follows:

AOs are divided into two teams:

Team 1Team 2
8 TrackAnnex
Air Up ThereBarracks
Blazing SaddleCatalog
Dolly’s DepotField of Dreams
FalkorGreen Mile
Quad CityOld Forest
Six WicketPit

Mothership and Ruckership are not included, because that is where it all started for F3 Memphis, and those AOs belong to the whole region! Outside of those two, ALL other AOs will be counted for KOTB! The counting will run from Sunday-Wednesday, during the predetermined KOTB week, and the team with the highest post total will be deemed the winner!

-Each AO can count ONE day during the counting period. If an AO has multiple days during that time frame, the highest total will be chosen. (Ex: If Levee has 13 on Monday, and 16 on Wednesday, then they will get credit for 16 for KOTB)
-PAX can be counted at multiple AOs for the same team, or on both teams, during the same week. (Ex: if someone posts at Green Mile Sunday, Levee on Monday, Lair on Tuesday, then FoD and Berm on Wednesday, that PAX would log 2 points for team 1, and 3 points for team 2)
-All FNGs count for 2 points, during those 4 days, even if their post day isn’t the one that gets counted. (Ex: Berm gets 2 FNGs on Monday, but then has highest total of week on Wednesday, they still get to add the 4 points to the Wednesday total). After the winner is determined, KOTB flag can travel around to the various AOs, for the winning side. We will leave it to AOQs to coordinate.

Fitness Challenge is Back!
Looking for a push to finish the year strong? Through year end – cumulatively tracking anyone that logs Posts, Miles Ran, Miles Rucked, + Weight (so individual categories for each)
In Addition – tracking total Murphs completed prior to year end – its an excellent WOD that pushes you and helps increase overall fitness and a variety of muscle groups
