If you follow F3 Memphis on social media (Facebook.com/f3memphis or Instagram), be sure to check out the PAX highlights that Boudreaux, our outstanding Comz-Q, has 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! So far there are highlights posted for Grimace, Landline, Tomb Raider, Stop Drop & Scroll, Yoga Splash, Ball Drop, Photoshop, Turkey Leg, TryCycle, Cheesehead, Slater and YHC. If you are willing to share your F3 story on social media, DM Boudreaux. Hit that :f3: emoji if you read this

KOTB for November went to Team Inner Looper/Northern Kingdom!
The final score was 90-78, in the inaugural team KOTB competition! Expect to see the KOTB flag flying in post-BC photos at various AOs in the Inner Loop and Northern Kingdom this month. Better yet, post at one of those AOs and see it in person

Highlights for this week:
Fitness Challenge is Back!
Looking at 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
Weekly – “Exercises” – starting with Thrusters/Burpees
The person with the most “weekly” (by Sunday night) gets to call the next week’s exercisesYou can enter your responses daily (or go back and select the date as needed). I won’t be logging anyones scores/posts so do it yourself. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScmDTPxFAHzV901NC8CbYQOa8GjWlbEMWXeuR8a5njFd5mswg/viewform?usp=pp_url
