Great crew today to celebrate F3 being on the Seattle side of things for two years.  We started 5/16/2016 with sparsely attended Mondays at MOHAI, and we had 21 guys out today + now 5 Seattle workouts a week = GROWTH!!!  Hats off to our current Site Q’s who are leading the charge:  529, Wooly Bugger, Kemp, DINK and Sundevil.

 

Promote a culture of growth by embodying the following quote/philosophy:  “When you’re green you’re growing, and when you’re ripe you’re dying on the vine.”  Always seeks growth opportunities and get outside of your comfort zone.

 

Excellent showing by the two FNG’s.  They both powered through their comfort zones.

 

Announcements:

 

-Be thinking of our guy Yard Sale.  Round #1 of chemo begins next week, and he will have a 5-day blast throughout his body for Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma.  Then….he will have five more blasts.

 

-Dig Dug, Worthington and Santa head to DC to take down the 50-mile GoRuck event.  While we are working out on Saturday AM they will be near mile #35…..go get ‘em boys!

 

-Worthington Weekend Family Extravaganza:  6/22-24    RSVP now so Worthington knows how many buses to get for adults night out component of the weekend/food/etc.

 

5/28:  No MOHAI or Grass Lawn workouts, instead we will do the Murph and play ultimate football at Kirkland Middle School.  Start time is 7AM.

 

FNG Divebar shared WoW.  He has been in Seattle for seven months now.  When in a new area or situation say “yes” to just about any new opportunity.  Also, he shared about his friend who endured 11 rounds of chemo for nose and throat cancer (Gekko initially thought he was going to make a broken nose joke at his expense).  Go big every day!
