CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
YHC took this opportunity to talk about a former F3 Winston-Salem brother who took his own life last week. He had fallen into serious depression and had stopped going to F3 months ago. YHC is not an expert on depression, but YHC knows that loneliness doesn’t help. The men of F3 Winston-Salem will always wonder how Hoser slipped through the cracks. This should be a reminder to us that we should constantly be leaning on guys to come back to F3 if they’ve been absent for a while. They need F3 for the fitness, but more importantly they need this brotherhood.
– #kotters to splash and Spread after several weeks off.
– the PAX were pretty quiet during the running portions of the #beatdown
– we focused on core today because many of the PAX want to have fresh arms and legs for the #ironpaxchallenge on Friday. So far the fastest time in the nation is 20:45

YHC prayed us out, praying that God will help us recognize other men that need this group.
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.
Talk to Icebox about Taste of Dallas with M’s and CBD’s
Next Happy Hour is July 13th. Mark your calendars. This one will not be at Ozona… Spread, splash…. be on the lookout for announcements from Pepper.

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.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
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.
