12 PAX gathered to compete in the Second Annual F3 Dallas Tour de France (YHC showed up to officiate). The race did not disappoint, as all of the PAX gave the maximum effort throughout the workout. Everyone competed for stage victories and made each stage exciting. There were a couple controversial stage results, which aligns perfectly with the actual Tour de France. Special Sauce grabbed the lead early with multiple sprint stage victories and the lead was insurmountable for the climbing specialist Chairman Mao. One of the climbing favorites prior to the race was Pepper, unfortunately he spent too much energy in the sprint stages, and even gave up some extra calories along the way. The climbs certainly had the feel of le Tour, and it showed on the faces of the competitors as they neared the summit each time. This was a heck of a workout for Special Sauce to bring an FNG to, but Radio was strong throughout. Welcome to this crazy brotherhood.

MOLESKIN:
Humid gloom today. Only one pup today who did surprisingly well. A bandana was left in the car of a clown when it would’ve been quite nice. YHC brought wayyy too heavy of a ruck sack so AlrightAlright and Ina took some turns which was appreciated and likely saved YHC from future back surgery. Very pleasant morning overall hanging out and getting some light work in.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Ant Man prayed us out hoping everyone has a safe week.MOLESKIN:
We initially waited on BOOMER to show up because he Emoji-ed my post but he was nowhere to be found. Ina brought a level of professionalism to MRM with an actual rucksack in order to prep for a week long camping trip (where he might or might not shower the whole time). Cash and Tango looked as though we were going to have to carry them up that last hill. AlrightAlright had thoughts of another Barkley Marathon, Ultra preemptively called in sick without missing a beat.

PAX: AlrightAlright, Chairman Mao, Ina, Isaiah, Teasip, Podcast
QIC: Coach K

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
INSERT

MOLESKIN:
Coach K sent a late night text requesting a substitute Q because Teasip peer pressured him into going out, but we rallied through. More to follow.

Early comment from AlrightAlright about a shortage of PAX, and I think I’ve officially fallen to the ranks of scaring people off with my oh so charming personality. Fortunately my feelings regenerate at the twice the speed of a normal man, so we powered on.

Our story really begins at AA’s suggestion of: “I’ve always wanted to crawl bear that library staircase.” Coach K was curious as well, and so I gave a brief disclaimer before all the PAX managed to ascend the 3-story staircase. It was agreed that it was the worst thing we’ve ever done prompting the “it seemed like a good idea at the time”, which seems to be a common theme in F3.

Lots of subsequent mumblechatter about the NBA draft, which honestly I didn’t keep up with until someone made a dig at UNC. Subtle reminder that UNC has the most Round 1 draft picks of all time instigating a strong debate about the scandal. AA said he was a strong supporter of Oregon State baseball despite them pitching a convicted child molester…minor details.

6 PAX made it to Bubba’s where the fun continued…Isaiah eagerly awaiting the arrival of baby Isaiah. Podcast is starting his new job next week with the Rangers, so any complaints/suggestions can now be directed at him. YHC got some digits last night with strong wingman support from Teasip, the true 2nd F champion. Talked a while about AlrightAlright vocal chords and dance moves. He admitted to splitting his pants at a wedding from going too hard, which is next level intensity. Mentioned how weird it was for AA to have such a deep singing voice while YHC has a much higher range. Wrapped up the discourse debating whether Kelly Clarkson or Carrie Underwood was more successful after their American Idol runs.
