YHC was excited about turning 30. He spoke to appreciation of the things f3 has brought to his life in terms of consistency, predictability, and accountability. YHC ended 2016 at age 28 downtrodden about inconsistent fitness. Aside from the physical fitness, it seemed to be connected to other layers: loneliness, lack of commitments to himself, etc. Commitment to fitness has been a nice thing about 29, ideally 30 brings about other commitments and rhythms of life. YHC expressed desire to have midtowners Bible study this summer and plans to coordinate with Four Eyes & Bottomless. 

YHC celebrated his 30th birthday by doing 30 reps of most everything w/ 7 other f3 brothers. The surprise birthday q was ideated by Phat Pat and became the alibi for his eventual fartsack. Ironically we found the Turd Emoji mask at the Skate Park that was too much for F3 Memphis social media. We do try to keep it PG.
