MOLESKIN:
As I finished my run and began to wait for the ruck group, the worry started to creep in as 6:24 am rolled by (unusually late for a ruck).  I had decided I was calling 911 if they did not show by 6:30, but luckily at 6:25 I heard some chatter and learned of the unfortunate injury to Oatmeal and the miscalculation of distance to be covered in amount of time remaining. I wanted to join the ruck but I will not be able to join on March 2nd, so I figured I would double-time just in case another PAX wanted to run.  Alas, no one did and so I ran All By Myself – an encore to Alright Alright from a few weeks back.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:
1. Wednesday night 6:00 pm at Chick-fil-a on Hillcrest
2. I also have a daughter in GS, so let me know if you want some GS cookies.

Mumblechatter…might have lost track of time

THA THANG:
Walking, limping, walking some more

MOLESKIN:
Camp Gladiator decided to park in our spots, so we were immediately off to a rough start. Apparently they can’t walk up the hill for their yoga sessions and PAX weren’t too apprecicative of it. YHC tried to jump on the “dissing Camp Gladiator” bandwagon but was quickly shut down and so back to silence YHC went. Icebox tried to be supportive of the talkative (albeit extremely cranky) Q but to no avail.

We started on our march and about .5 miles in, Oatmeal got clipped by a speeding car, which caused him to roll off into the ditch bending his ankle every which way. Not quite that dramatic, but Oatmeal did take a nasty fall. We started rucking back towards the car before AA took off to get a truck (without dropping his weight sack – art of manliness right there).

Once we got Oatmeal situated, the PAX continued their trek where some mistakes in routing were made. We grossly underestimated the distance we could ruck under the time constraints resulting in PAX showing up late to meet up with a legitimately concerned Ina.

Conversation predominately covered the CSAUP event in March, the details of which will be summarized later. You definitely won’t want to miss this. The other hot topic was, per usual, YHC’s level of grumpiness. As Splash would say, YHC needs to find a girlfriend. With any luck, the spark made with a girl in the chip aisle at Kroger pre-Cowboys game on Saturday will ignite something (#backblast for Teasip per request).

Pray for Oatmeal and for a quick recovery. Hope it felt worse than it actually was, and power to him for walking an extra quarter mile with a weight vest.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:
1. CSAUP event planning in the works; 03/02 Texas Independence Day
2. Run Ranger Run sign ups
3. Q source groups meet Wednesday night and Friday at lunch (see preblasts)

Doubletime 2019

AO: Flag Pole Hill

WARM-O-RAMA:
None, straight to running

THA THANG:
5 miles over two loops

AlrightAlright – 7.15
Mile High 7.22

MOLESKIN:
First mile pace of 7.08 with most PAX grouped together. YHCs mutt was non compliant, so I DNF full 5, and got only 3.5 miles in. Chairman and Isaiah did not track their pace but were not too far behind.

Mutt Ruck and Dribble Ball

COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA:
PAX: F150, Icebox, Ina
QIC: Coach K

AO: Flag Pole Hill

THA THANG:
We walked places. Did some squats. Pace was 16:28 if I heard correctly, but PAX are welcome to correct me.

MOLESKIN:
Kicked off with a couple of Parkey jokes. Glad he finally won the Eagles a game. Lots of college basketball talk this morning as YHC didn’t have his public accounting PIC. Discussed the new NFL rule where colleges can restrict access to their coaches (Kingsbury the first to get slapped with this). Mentioned light up sneakers making a comeback. Maverick out and about despite low T from his operation.

All By Myself

YHC arrived in the gloom to find 3 ruckers, but no doubletimers. So YHC took off accompanied by Lil Wayne, Young Jeezy, Maino and of course… Akon.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
YHC prayed us out.

MOLESKIN:
PAX discussed Christmas happenings, OU’s impressive showing again the Crimson Tide on Saturday, Nick Saban’s expected pension benefits ($2.4M/year as a public employee, not a bad gig if you can get it), ND & OU being trolled on Twitter, and other bowl happenings.  F150 also got half a ruck’s worth of public accounting talk from YHC and Coach K.  Definitely worth the price of admission!!

How many layers is too many?

COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA:
PAX: Ant Man (and Eli), Rump Roast, Candy Land, Alright Alright, Sally (and Roxie)
QIC: Mile High

AO: Flag Pole Hill

Perfect weather for a MuttRuckMonday. Some PAX started off with many layers, erring on the side of warmth. This decision came to be regretted after the first 1/2 mile. Typical rucking mumblechatter ranging from jack russell terriers’ aptitude for rabbit hunting to the apparent demise of the other workout at Flag Pole Hill. Candy Land decided to finish off the last 100(ish) yards with a jog back which spurred AlrightAlright to challenge him. Candy Land won out.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
YHC prayed us out.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:
1. The website is funded.
2. Oatmeal started an F3 Dallas team for Run Ranger Run in February. Refer to the chat on band for more information.

The Dog Whisperer

COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA:
PAX: Ina, Mile High, Sally with Roxie
QIC: Coach K, but more so Ina

AO: Flag Pole Hill

THA THANG:
We walked places, did some squats

MOLESKIN:
Sally was a smidge late but finally tracked the rest of us down about 10 mins in giving us our lone Mutt of MRM. PAX were given a glimpse into YHCs mysterious past when asked about his obsession/knowledge of dogs. I grew up huntin’ and training dogs for both retrieving my dinner and running in huntin’ trials. We discussed the common misconception that Mile High is from Denver…different type of club everyone, a much more exclusive club at that. Ina is a monster who ran a 5k and half-marathon this weekend and still showed up to Ruck (in shorts of course).

As promised, YHC brought some cookies for the PAX. Little known fact, YHC loves to cook.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:
1. Get your votes in for the HH this Friday. Wives, SOs, and single women friends all invited
2. Capture the Flag / Bomb Q this Saturday. YHC needs people to show up again to make it happen, so commit now

Double the Miles Double the Fun

COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA:
PAX: Ina, Oatmeal, Pepper
QIC: Alright Alright

AO: Flag Pole Hill
F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER:

THA THANG:
Run 5 miles

YHC, Pepper – 7:18 pace
Ina, Oatmeal – 7:37 pace

MOLESKIN:
It was a cold morning, but the PAX all got off to a hot start with a 7:09 first mile. We all dialed things back a little bit from there. The hills were as treacherous as ever, if not more, after all 4 of the PAX were sore from workouts over the weekend.

There was not much mumblechatter as we were all either frozen or sucking wind throughout the run.

None of us could have run these times solo, but we all pushed each other to be faster. That’s what F3 is all about.

Not Just Finance Mutt Ruck

PAX: Mile High & Rump Roast

QIC: Icebox (Maverick)

MOLESKIN:

Mile High was really the Q since I don’t know any routes around Flag Pole Hill Park and killed it with the navigation skills. He was quick to point out that he and the Roast are the only ones not in finance #diversity

Rump Roast showed 300% improvement from a couple months ago, T Claps to you sir! In case anyone has a pet pig it’s okay for the Roast to meet them, he will not try to sell them as merchandise.

Great getting to know you guys better, hope to see more of you for future rucks!
