Soggy B.O.M.B.S (but the wick still lit)

AO: The Cockpit

PAX: Ditch; No Fuego; Rabbit; Jasmine; Shania; Soulja Boy

O. M. Goodness! Where do I even start with this? Well first of all, T-claps to our very own Memphis Weather Q, Backseat, for working with the SkyQ on getting that Lightening canceled. After that the only out of the ordinary condish was the refreshing rain.

Due to lack of HCs the night before, YHC decided not to pre-ruck because rucking alone SUX! Showed up to the Cockpit to find Jasmine and Ditch GITTIN IT around the walking path at top speed. T-claps, men. Sorry I missed you.

Due to a lack of commitment on the part of MLG&E YHC was prematurely bestowed the honor of piloting the Cockpit for the first time. Phat Pat was reduced to bumbling around the house in the dark, lighting his pipe with ancient technology (a match) and not drinking coffee. He was a miserable soul to be sure.

Rabbit slept past his alarm but in his dedication to post at the Cockpit, heaved out, triced up, and posted about 8 minutes late.


Performed properly and on time.

The Thang required an even number of PAX so YHC decided to take a Capri lap around the walking path to wait for Rabbit. Worked out perfectly. He joined us at the end of the lap.

Inheriting todays Q last minute, YHC decided to do what any self-respecting Q would do.


See the explanatory exicon blurb below:
Similar to Dora 1-2-3 but more exercises. Partner up. Pax 1 does exercise while Pax 2 runs to the edge of the parking lot. The mosey was about 75 yards. Swap out and continue the exercise until each amount of reps are complete collectively between partners.

The exercises and reps are as follows:

  • 50- Burpees
  • 100- Overhead Claps
  • 150- Merkins
  • 200- Big Boy Sit-ups
  • 250- Squats.

It’s a beautiful thing when the PAX rally around the six to support the workload and finish up the reps. That happened this morning. [single tear]

Warm-o-rama ran a bit longer than usual due to a ½ mile capri lap so the thang ran right up to Mary.

6 PAX, 0 FNGs

YHC is thankful for The PAX of the Cockpit and excited about seeing F3 grow further into Millington and Arlington. These two cities NEED F3.

The 3 Fs, Fitness+Fellowship+Faith, are designed to defeat the epidemic of “sad-clown syndrome”. Sad clowns are everywhere. A clown at a birthday party may look happy but only because of his painted on smile. In reality, he hates where he is, what he is doing, and he regrets wasting his time at clown college.

A sad clown in life may look 5.0 on the outside. Good career, beautiful family, Loving relationship with the M… But on the inside there is something missing and he knows it. He may not know what it is but he knows it isn’t there. The negative emotions triggered by this can lead to a multitude bad habits: Lack of exercise, lack of leadership initiative, acceptance of parental failure, depression, the list goes on.

So what is it that’s missing? We, as created beings were created with an innate longing for fellowship. Primarily and most importantly with our creator, wives, and family. But also with other like-minded men who are willing to step up and share in a common struggle in order to lift one another up. The community that emerges out of the bond between friends and brothers is healing. I love F3 and the F3 brethren.

Challenge to the PAX: ABH! (Always Be Headlocking)


Several prayer requests raised this morning. The Lord has them. God is good.

Post at the Morg tomorrow so Gus can prep us for Growruck. Should’ve mentioned Chic-Fil-A family picnic and field day. Im sure O Positive will pick up my slack on Slack.
