MOLESKIN:
Low amount of mumble chatter this morning. Everyone was wondering where BOOMER and Neutered were; delayed as long as possible in the parking lot before heading to the soft top. PAX quickly corrected the QIC on his counting during the Rugbee situp part of the Mary 45s (henceforth renamed Dolt 45s and to now include Homer to Marge (DOH!)). QIC modified the tennis court cardio, changing the second webbicide to a regular suicide to head off a PAX revolt. Several PAX pulled a #Chippendale due to the high humidity.

AlrightAlright explained that today’s workout would focus on teaching guys how to lead workouts the proper way, and that starts with Side Straddle Hop. After this demonstration AlrightAlright took time to explain that slower cadence counting will help all of the PAX have better form and Special Sauce commented that it makes merkins more difficult. Mary was done without the PAX setting their feet down at any point.

splash made the comment early on that it was obvious that AlrightAlright hadn’t not seen his wife. Very true.

Lots of grumbling at the initial call for bear crawls. And Special Sauce even predicted it.

The PAX did a great job of picking up the six and planking for the six. This is a huge part of F3 that we often forget. Never leave a man behind. We’re all in this together.

THA THANG:
Run to campus and line up around fountain by parking garage. Pax do continuous step ups while alternating to run a lap around the fountain until all have completed a lap. Rinse and repeat with box jumps for round two.

Run to parking garage and take stairs to top level. Burpee broad jumps across top deck. Rinse and repeat back to starting spot.

Line up along wall at top level in two groups. Group one sprints down ramp to opposite end and runs backward to start while group two does squats. Flapjack. Rinse and repeat.

Head back to fountain and plank up, choosing to take stairs or 4 levels of ramps down.

Time for some upper body says AlrightAlright (but no grass, please). Partner up for partner Merkins. Rinse and repeat (still not sure AlrightAlright ever got the count down properly…math is not a core subject at Wake apparently). Partner shoulder taps next.

Hot morning demanded a return to the fountain for more laps, this time with Incline Merkins shifting to decline Merkins or dips halfway through the run routine.

More upper body, please, Mr Q. So it’s over to the round rose garden for more dips while pax take a lap around bear crawl style (2 pax at a time).

Coming up on home stretch and talk of crawl bears was making its way through the mumble chatter as we did lunge walk and backward lunge walk. So pax split into two lines for a crawl bear relay out to fire hydrant and run back to start while rest of each team does sumo squats. AlrightAlright rallied his team from a big gap to win handily.

MOLESKIN:
Ant Man posted midstream WARM-O-RAMA and #Respectables were sufficiently loose so it was time to get the show started.

Strong showing among Dallas pax on a very swampy morning. Thanks to pax for the zeal and the engagement during active rest periods discussing their experience with F3.

Nice to see Splash hanging with the #Hates and, like Candy Cane on Thur, repping the F3 mission from the early days in Dallas.

Great to see many relo pax from F3 regions who never knew about F3 until they landed in Dallas.

Strong naming effort! Hope Al Dente and Sooner stick with it.

The top of the deck provided perfect setting to highlight F3 male community leadership mission. Could see Dallas skyline in the distance and like Charlotte, Richmond, Houston, Fort Mill and so many other markets, Dallas needs F3 because it needs men invested in community and leading in whatever way they can. It doesn’t have to be grand or complicated…merely bringing out another Sad Clown, supporting a pax during a hard period, encouraging AlrightAlright or living all 3 Fs in your family is a great step forward. Keep pushing yourself and each other.

Thanks to AlrightAlright for the invite and keep leading these men!

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.

The PAX quickly caught on to the theme during side straddle hop. YHC and others are just glad Spreaddoesn’t go with this theme on his birthday. #old

Not nearly as much grumbling as I expected during the initial bear crawl.

Sambucadoes not get cheated on his pull ups. We should all try to get full extension on those if we can. #tclaps

Significantly more #mumblechatterduring the bear crawls and merkins.

Everyone got noticeably quieter after the second round of crawl bears.

Hacker pointed out that he didn’t see anyone doing Australian Mountain Climbers the last time he was in Australia.

The Spanish counting on Rosalita got much worse after we got to 16.

splashtold Aaarrrggghhhthat he would get more athletic as he does more rugby sit-ups.

splashalso announced to the PAX that he thinks LBCs make us fat.

We added a half mile to the distance that we usually run. Total mileage for the day was about 3.1.
