C’mon man

3 for boxtrot this morning. (Hollywood, DryDock, XBox) However one of the PAX – who shall remain nameless – had to peel off early due to the fact that the one rib of his which is currently broken was bothering him. Duh.

The other two ended up running sub-8 minute miles for a bit.

Respect your injuries…geez.

Dodging Rain Drops for the Boxtrot

3 Men met in Redmond for a Boxtrot run.

The PAX: Hollywood (Q), Salsa, Worthington

The Thang – Hit the trail, turn left. 2 miles out, 2 miles back. Salsa’s watch had us at a 9:18/mile pace.

Great discussion the whole way. Recapping Worthington’s weekend.

At the end we discussed training for the Rucks coming up. The benefits of adding PT into the training sessions, and working with Kettle Bells and other coupons.

WoW focused on getting better and pushing ourselves. Always grateful for F3.

As always…the rain took a break for the majority of our run. Started to come down hard again as I was driving home. Don’t be scared by the rain. Get out there!

Running in both directions

Creating this BB for XBox who had to run down to Seatac for an 8:15 flight. (Ahem…he still hit a workout on a travel day…cough, cough….#NoExcuses )

The PAX: FSBO, XBox, Drydock, Spotlight, Hollywood.

We did 4 miles on the Redmond trail.  (XBox peeled away after 3, but that’s acceptable, cause he’s “tha man.”)

Kept the pace around 10:00/mile…maybe crept up a little faster, but started and finished as a group.

Great conversation the whole time.

During CoT and WoW I mentioned the book I’m reading “Factfulness” by Hans Rosling.  Great read so far. If you’ve never seen one of his TED talks, I highly recommend them.


It’s our Credo

5 showed up to get better….and did.

PAX: Jar Jar, Spotlight, Hollywood, Dry Dock, Xbox (Q)

Dry Dock, Spotlight, and Hollywood got 4 miles and Jar Jar and I got closer to 3.

WoW: Jar Jar felt bad that I stayed back to walk/run with him. I reminded everyone of our Credo, which is not a rule but an action a man takes in support of another man: #thirdF #fromtheheart.

Thank you for the opportunity to lead.

Still an OTB?

5 showed up to boxtrot and got better.

PAX: Schnitzel, Worthington, AP, Dig Dug, Xbox (Q)

2 miles north on the Sammamish River Trail and back. We averaged 9:39 a mile today with mile two being our fastest: 9:26.

We circled up, counted off and did nameorama. FSBO then showed for a post run ruck to hear AP define what a Ball-of-Man is supposed to look like: one man in center with hand up, the rest of the men come in and touch the shoulder of that man or one close to them.

Great to see 5 today. This OTB is near On-the-books with its consistency. Come on out and join us.
