F3’s Mission

Before diving into the BB, I want to pontificate about F3 mission and how important it can be to thoughtfully consider its purpose beyond exercise. F3’s mission is to plant, grow and serve small workout groups for men for the invigoration of male community leadership. I’ve been challenging myself to consider this mission during my […]

Oh the Places You’ll Go!

 It has been a bit of a rough week for Dr. Seuss, but his book “Oh The Places You’ll Go” will always have a find a spot in my memory.   With Dr. Seuss in the news, along with the lessening of Covid-related restrictions, and the recent brazen move by the state of Texas to […]

3 Exercises, 8 Reps

Strong Friday showing of 14 PAX. Coxswain and Kia were notable absences. Coxswain because he’s the site Q and Kia because he HCd. Today’s theme was the number 38, honoring the 38 AOs across Durham.   Warm-Up SSH x38 led by Knope because YHC was less than a minute late. No penalty burpees though.   […]

Like a Rug on Valium

  Trying to heed the recent callout for PAX to get more consistent with backblasts, but there ain’t much to this one. Inspired by Peppermint Pattie and some other OGs, lately YHC has been more about keeping things very simple – a few good exercises that hit all muscle groups, and lots of reps. Running […]

World’s Worst Pub Crawl

YHC came flying down Mangum trying to get to the AO before 0530. Magellan was standing on the street corner pointing at his watch. Never good a thing when someone with punctuality issues is calling you out. YHC was greeted by a large group of men at the flagpole who were ready to help YHC […]

Remembering 9/11

Today is the 19th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The UNC ROTC typically does a 9/11 memorial stair climb at Kenan Stadium, but due to Covid 19, the event was not able to be held. YHC still wanted to remember those that died in the terror attacks and those that died trying to bring […]
