MOLESKIN:
For the 2nd time in F3 Dallas history, the PAX attempted the Barkley Marathon Workout. 4 of the original 6 participants came out for a second attempt. Rain was int he forecast, so YHC and the fearless leader attempted to fit the pain station writeups into plastic bags, causing a slight delay to the start of the workout. Mid workout, one of the pain station write-ups disappeared due to a good Samaritan walking the neighborhood picking up “trash”. The ABCs spelling your F3 name twice was a crowd pleaser, especially for AlrightAlright. Coffeteria was held after at Whataburger, hilighted by the claim that the #6 song in 1985 was actually the #1 song ever; much skepticism was expressed.

It seemed like a good idea at the time

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

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.

MOLESKIN:
Apparently starting out with a burpee mile knocked the sarcasm out of the PAX, Teasip knew something was up though since Icebox wore the extra knee brace. AlrightAlright was frustrated with my old man pace and was karoking for most of the mile, Aaarrrggghhh hasn’t worked out in a week and a half but performed adequately, Numb Tucks didn’t know what was going on with the beats box, Eruzione commuted down to celebrate Icebox’s bday as well. Isaiah was excited that it was more of a Katy Trail workout. Splash was a no show since he was only going to lose 5 lbs instead of 10 during the workout

YHC reminded each of us that we are leading people in our lives and how we do so reflects who we follow whether that is Jesus Christ or another religion or person. How do those that you led see your leadership?

Ultra shared a prayer request for his father-in-law’s upcoming surgery. We prayed for him in closing.

MOLESKIN:
There was some mumblechatter as we began the gloom about the short rain and some lightening, if there had been more we would have ENDEX. After our Warm-o-rama it was nice to have a mosey around the park Native American style – keeping all the PAX together. When we arrived back to the playground Ultra joined us, he had been earlier but left before any PAX showed up due to lighting. Our fearless Nantan was able to contact him and get him to join us. Great job AlrightAlright.

During The-Thang there was not much mumblechatter due to the nature of doing 50 of any exercise against the clock. AlrightAlright did note that he asked what we would be doing this gloom and took YHC’s response of abs as to be mean our traditional ab workout…not hanging ab workout. Which is exactly what AlrightAlright worked out last night. Thats good he can always use more ab workouts.

Boomer was victorious over the CMU/Coupon this gloom, even brought gloves to ensure there was no way of a surprise.

We are in an exciting time for F3 Dallas as we multiple new PAX leading workouts. This week we have a Shake Weight VQ on Saturday and two VQs last week. PAX continue to EH the Sad Clowns of Dallas and lets make a change in male leadership, fitness, fellowship and faith.

MOLESKIN:
Such a great day to get out in the gloom with the men of F3 Dallas. This morning counting/deciding on how to count was a struggle early on, however Splash got the men together by the end. There was a good bit of mummblechatter about the closeness of partners in some of the beatdown, but it made for a great workout. While upon the tennis court F150 kept dropping Boney Express…nice initiation.

While doing flutter kicks our beloved Pepper was mentioned, but the PAX quickly recalled that it was not his Q so attendance questionable…it was mentioned that he was to bring an FNG with him but the PAX never saw either. Great morning to have two Willy Lomans join us – Don’tChaKnow and Rocket Man and to have RESPECT for Boney Express for joining us and being excited to get Sad Clowns from SMU to join us in the gloom.

At one point Aaarrrggghhh shared how a particular door to a home looked to be very welcoming and almost like it says “come on in.” He quickly points this house out on most moseys down Caruth Blvd.
