YHC prayed us out, praying that God will help us recognize other men that need this group.

MOLESKIN:
Before the workout began Spread immediately protested the Tunnel of Love. It was a perfect day for it.
We moseyed back to the soft top for Mary and found that our territory had been seized by a group of women. Clearly they missed the memo that we claimed this park way back in 2012. We decided to cede the territory peacefully this week, but if it happens again next week…..
Ant Man remarked that the women should be recruited for Females In Action… more to come on the F3 sister organization in the coming weeks.
It was agreed by some that 5×5 should happen more often.
Many complained the Painting Bears are impossible, yet we didn’t have any trouble completing them.
Several of the PAX were overjoyed to find YHC Q’ing for a second day in a row.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

MOLESKIN:
This beatdown turned out to be much more running then Special Sauce thought it would be. All in we covered about 3 miles – Life lesson: Distances on Google Maps are further than they appear. There was plenty of hate early on during the 5x5x5, but most of it subsided by round number 2 as most of the PAX, me included, was too winded to make words. Spread took a 4 second head start on the last gasser and was still caught by AA & Chairman – he blamed the loss on being old. Great to have Candy Cane back for a Wednesday workout, 10 minutes of bearcrawls is a great way to return from a torn rotator cuff. Boney Express tweaked his calf on the last gasser (diagnosed as a pull by Dr. Mao), but fought through the pain and was able to make it back to Caruth. Keep him in your thoughts as he was worried about the hostile comments from the M upon his return home.

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.

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.
