Partner Swapping

Everyone knows the risks of having multiple partners but YHC devised a safe fun and casual way for the PAX to share the load.  The plan was met with some resentment, however, as Paula Dean and Skinny Pete had to be pried apart after Round 1.  Bowtie flat out refused to participate after discovering he couldn’t stay with Arnold and ended up just running around in circles.  Lukie embraced the idea and tried to get with as many PAX as possible.  Here is how it went down.

Blimps & Bombs

It was a typical Friday afternoon in the summertime with nobody signed up to Q  convergence.  YHC stepped up to the plate with the hopes of delivering a Muscle Melting Masterpiece.  While struggling with ideas, some the of Clinic veterans started chiming in with requests for windmills that escalated rapidly to 100 burpees.  Slightly under the influence while manning the grill the night before, the vision for Groundblinds Abundance of Apocalyptic  Acronyms unfolded.  Here is how it went down.

Lesson on leadership From the Book of Titus

Doing Good for the Sake of the Gospel

You, however, must teach what is appropriate to sound doctrine.Teach the older men to be temperate, worthy of respect, self-controlled, and sound in faith, in love and in endurance.

Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.

Similarly, encourage the young men to be self-controlled. In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us

Great work by all and great having Steel Cannon from Kannapolis.  Always a pleasure to lead.

**CoT

The MOG MILE is approaching, it reminded me that Black Hawk Down is one of my favorite movies. Those guys went through HELL. Just like today we did today, they depended on their brothers. We all made it back today but they didn’t all have that luxury. Some of those guys fought to the death to get in there and save their brothers because they knew what they were going through in that city. Letting them go it alone was NOT an option. I say all of this as a reminder to you guys..as a team, as brothers, you need to let each other in on whats happening in your lives. We all get into places sometimes that we feel like are HELL and we need help but imagine that movie again with no relief. No one that cared to come get em out. We need this brotherhood, this accountability in our lives because sometimes we are the ones who need help, and sometimes we’re the ones who need to give it.

F3 Hartsville 30-Day Challenge – IMPACT

IMPACT – Forcible contact to strong effect

This is the F3 definition of IMPACT.  In essence it means taking ACTION that has effect on others or the community around you.  It is a VERB. It requires something of oneself without the promise of immediate return to oneself.

The next F3 Hartsville 30 Day Challenge is all about IMPACT.  If you accept this challenge then starting August 1stfor the next 30 days you will each day DO something that makes a positive IMPACT to someone other than yourself.  Not an absolute, but try your best to stay anonymous from the person(s) you are IMPACTING.  The range of ACTION can be anywhere from picking up trash at your AO, paying for the meal of the person behind you in the drive thru, to donating $10,000 to a local non-profit.  The size of the ACT does not matter it is the posture of our hearts we are exercising here with the giving of ourselves while getting nothing in return.

Yes…there will be a chat.  Each day you make an IMPACT you can simply comment “IMPACT” on the chat or if you wish to share what it was you did that is fine too as long as the person IMPACTED doesn’t know it was you.

So…this is truly a challenge for everyone, even you Bench Warmer!  Regardless if you’re traveling, regardless of your work schedule, regardless if you’re injured…everyone can make an IMPACT.

HC to Divac to be added to the chat.

Gray Man Returns

Conditions: 72 Clear and Humid

Last Sunday, Benchwarmer posted the week’s plan on the Clinic board and has “Paperboy” listed as Q for Convergence.  Well why not?  #accountability.   Best to take charge, #commit and take control of the agenda.   Could it bring it?  Could I hang?   Better yet – will the Pax post?

5 Pax loitered at the AO up to about 5 mins til launch – stragglers came rolling in as times up more pax rolled in as we circled up.  Benchwarmer rolls up halfway through the warmup and best yet – Cowboy arrives as we start 5 Mins of Mary…

All in all, 17 Pax took the DRP and we launched into a steady sweat fest on a cool, wet humid morning.

THE POWER OF PURPOSE

But I want you to know, Brethren , that the things which happened to me have actually turned out for the furtherance of the gospel, so that it has become evident to the whole palace guard, and to all the rest, that my chains are in Christ; and most of the brethren in the Lord, having become confident by my chains, are much more bold to speak the word without fear. PHILIPPIANS 1:12–14

Paul might have been forgiven had he chosen to take a little sabbatical as he sat in prison, awaiting his trial. Yet he used even this opportunity to advance the gospel. Paul was a leader who never drifted from his mission. He determined to leave his mark wherever he went. How did Paul’s sense of purpose keep him in the battle as he sat in prison?

What did he learn behind bars? Consider the following:

A purpose will motivate you.

A purpose will keep your priorities straight.

A purpose will develop your potential.

A purpose will give you power to live in the present.

A purpose will help you evaluate your progress.

 

“To be successful, you must accept the challenges that come your way. You can’t just accept the ones you like.”–Mike Gafka

“Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no help at all.”–Dale Carnegie

 

Also read:

There once was a man who lived in a cabin next to a field. In the middle of the field was a huge rock – an enormous boulder. One night, God came to the man in a dream and said “I want you to go out in the morning and every morning after that and push the rock with all your heart and all your might.” So, the next morning and every morning after that the man did exactly as God instructed. Every morning, day after day, week after week, month after month – no matter the weather – the man woke up and pushed the rock until he could no longer push it anymore. And day after day, week after week, month after month, the rock never budged a single inch. Some days, he did not feel like pushing the rock, but he did it anyway. Some days, he did not push the rock with all his heart and all his might, giving just a partial effort until he realized this was not God’s command. His task was to push the rock with all his heart and all his might, every morning. He grew frustrated and prayed, “God, why am I pushing this rock? Day after day, week after week, month after month I have pushed this rock. I have never moved it, and never will!”

 

God replied, “I did not ask you to MOVE the rock, I asked you to PUSH the rock with all your heart and all your might. You have been an obedient and faithful servant; now look how you have transformed yourself: your shoulders are broad, your arms are strong, your legs are powerful. You are now ready for me to use you for a greater purpose!”

Thanks to all for the support – posting and sharing the suck!

Tour de Hartsville – 30 Day Challenge

Tour de Hartsville – 30 Day Challenge

There are 13 workouts in Hartsville on any given week.  Yes Barfly, Happy Hour is a workout.  Sorry Paperboy but whatever you and Coxwain do on Sunday afternoon needs to stay in the woods.

There are 13 “registered” workouts for which each Pax has an opportunity to post on any given week. Your challenge over the next 30 days…go to all 13.  Not 12, 13. Not all but Revolution, ALL.  Not every one except Act Like Men…EVERY WORKOUT.

This means you’ve got 30 days to:

  • Tell your M you need to post at two evening workouts over the next month. I’m sure she’ll understand.
  • Sike yourself up enough to go to Currahee – rucks are suggested but NOT mandatory. He’s a man who wore a dress to his 2nd F3 workout…it aint that bad!
  • Plan your outfit and funny quips for the show that is The Clinic. The resident DOTW is sure to make you feel welcome
  • Talk yourself out of the lie that Act Like Men is not for you cause talking about something other than burpees or Stallion’s gross toe just isn’t what you signed up for!
  • Pull out your speedo and get to the YMCA one Monday morning to play marco polo with Klinger or Red
  • Drop the “I don’t run” excuse and check out Prefontaine – they don’t mind if you walk most the way. That’s what Skinny Pete does!
  • Finally hit the Temple and show Bowtie what a real merkin looks like

The point is 30 days is plenty of time to cut the excuses and get out of your comfort zone and GROW. You never know…you may just become a regular at one of these new workouts.

Rules:

  • Start date is Monday, June 18
  • If your in HC to Divac and he’ll add you to the chat

On June 28, 2005, Lt. Murphy was the officer-in-charge of a four-man SEAL element in support of Operation Red Wing tasked with finding key anti-coalition militia commander near Asadabad, Afghanistan. Shortly after inserting into the objective area, the SEALs were spotted by three goat herders who were initially detained and then released. It is believed the goat herders immediately reported the SEALs’ presence to Taliban fighters.

A fierce gun battle ensued on the steep face of the mountain between the SEALs and a much larger enemy force. Despite the intensity of the firefight and suffering grave gunshot wounds himself, Murphy is credited with risking his own life to save the lives of his teammates. Murphy, intent on making contact with headquarters, but realizing this would be impossible in the extreme terrain where they were fighting, unhesitatingly and with complete disregard for his own life moved into the open, where he could gain a better position to transmit a call to get help for his men.

Moving away from the protective mountain rocks, he knowingly exposed himself to increased enemy gunfire. This deliberate and heroic act deprived him of cover and made him a target for the enemy. While continuing to be fired upon, Murphy made contact with the SOF Quick Reaction Force at Bagram Air Base and requested assistance. He calmly provided his unit’s location and the size of the enemy force while requesting immediate support for his team. At one point, he was shot in the back causing him to drop the transmitter. Murphy picked it back up, completed the call and continued firing at the enemy who was closing in. Severely wounded, Lt. Murphy returned to his cover position with his men and continued the battle.

As a result of Murphy’s call, an MH-47 Chinook helicopter, with eight additional SEALs and eight Army Night Stalkers aboard, was sent in as part of the QRF to extract the four embattled SEALs. As the Chinook drew nearer to the fight, a rocket-propelled grenade hit the helicopter, causing it to crash and killing all 16 men aboard.

On the ground and nearly out of ammunition, the four SEALs, continued to fight. By the end of a two-hour gunfight that careened through the hills and over cliffs, Murphy, Gunner’s Mate 2nd Class (SEAL) Danny Dietz and Sonar Technician 2nd Class (SEAL) Matthew Axelson had fallen. An estimated 35 Taliban were also dead. The fourth SEAL, Hospital Corpsman 2nd Class (SEAL) Marcus Luttrell, was blasted over a ridge by a rocket-propelled grenade and knocked unconscious. Though severely wounded, the fourth SEAL and sole survivor, Luttrell, was able to evade the enemy for nearly a day; after which local nationals came to his aide, carrying him to a nearby village where they kept him for three more days. Luttrell was rescued by U.S. Forces on July 2, 2005.

By his undaunted courage, intrepid fighting spirit and inspirational devotion to his men in the face of certain death, Lt. Murphy was able to relay the position of his unit, an act that ultimately led to the rescue of Luttrell and the recovery of the remains of the three who were killed in the battle.

Christmas in April 2018 AAR

“I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do.” – Edward Everett Hale

Today F3Hartsville learned some valuable lessons:

  • We are a strong pax.
  • We can accomplish a lot in a relatively short span of time.
  • We have a variety of skills, except Skinny Pete, who doesn’t seem to know how to do anything.

What we did at 616 Howard St:

  • Replaced 6 windows
  • Insulated and sealed all the windows and added trim on the exterior
  • Installed privacy door lock on the bathroom door
  • Installed exterior door lock on the back door
  • Added a full master suite with Jacuzzi tub and Italian marble rain water shower

What we did at Marion St. Cemetery:

  • Spread mulch
  • Clear debris
  • Lean on shovels
  • Eat coffee and donuts

After a light workout Q’d by Little Jack, which basically consisted of high fives and several heated contests of Miss Mary Mack, YHC was ready to get the pax moving in the right direction.

We had a problem with Benchwarmer who viciously tried to usurp YHC’s authority and speak out nonsense. YHC quickly chastened him back into his place. (previous version used sterner language that may be inappropriate for sensitive ears)

We all met for coffeeteria at 616 Howard St. Ruth’s Drive-In provided coffee and biscuits. Miraculously Stallion showed up for food and the group pic immediately afterward. Nobody saw him after that. He mumbled something about checking out other Christmas in April sites to see what kind of food they had.

YHC wisely and shrewdly separated the intelligent pax from the grunt labor. This didn’t take long. Basically anybody that brought a tool was on the Howard St. job, while the inmates were assigned to the mulch pile chain gang.

YHC took all the skilled labor pax through a comprehensive Power Point presentation on worker safety and best practices, as well as an in-depth discussion on each step of the window replacement process. Immediately after the presentation, every single pax asked YHC the same exact questions that were discussed ad nauseum just 2 seconds before. YHC began to question the wisdom of committing to a work project that required some element of intelligence and construction acumen. Fortunately YHC has unlimited patience and endured the trial of a bunch of little kindergarten kids asking the same questions over and over again.

Soon enough, we had 4 window teams working simultaneously, just like YHC had envisioned back when he and Krispy Kreme replaced the first window as a test run. T-claps to Krispy for helping organize this whole event. He put together the shopping list and measured out the window sizes. His work behind the scenes made the job possible.

Head, LoveBug and Lee Murph took on one window. PurdyMouth and Audit tackled another. Sludge, Cowboy and Gutterball jumped on one. Twinkle Toes and Audit’s 2.0 took the hardest one of all, because it was partially behind a rickety kitchen counter.

Meanwhile, this happened at the mulch pile:

 

I was truly honored to be a part of Christmas in April with F3. We got a lot of work done and tore down some barriers along the way. My dream is to have an AO in Pride Park or somewhere in that neighborhood. Today was a step in the right direction.

All the pax worked hard and worked together. One of the town volunteers helping with the cemetery was named Willie. He is 80 years old and was slinging mulch alongside everybody else. He lamented that his community wasn’t taking care of the cemetery. What he meant was the “black community”. I cut him off and told him his community was out here right now. There can no longer be a white community and a black community. It may seem strange to say, but a cemetery is the perfect place to begin stitching our town together. The graveyard is a collection of stories. Marion St. Cemetery was lost for decades due to neglect and apathy, but these stories are emerging once again. They must be told. They must be shared. Too often we try to bury our past without acknowledging and growing from it.

The next logical step is to create a shared story among the living. Working shoulder to shoulder in the hot sun or repairing an elderly couple’s home is a powerful way to unite people. We follow the same structure in F3. Show up in the gloom and do stupid stuff, while all the sad clowns sleep. What happens in the gloom, however, is community. We have the secret sauce.

Aye!

Christmas in April Pre-Blast

Here’s the details:

Date: Saturday, April 28

Time: After Convergence (coffee and biscuits will be provided)

Place: From WarZone to 616 Howard St.

Directions: Take 6th St to Marion Avenue. Right on Marion. First house on the right just after Pride Park. (This is the back of the house)

THE THANG

PROJECT PANE

We are going to be replacing 6 windows, 1 exterior door and 3 door locks for Dolly Wright and her husband. She is as sweet as a 50# bag of sugar, and I can’t wait to help her out. Their home is old and breezy. New windows will provide better insulation than the plastic she has tacked up over the original windows. Currently her back door is an interior hollow core door, which provides zero security and not much more insulation value. Her front and rear doors have no deadbolts and old handles. Her bathroom door has no handle at all. #awkward

Tools: Hammer, flat bar, screwdrivers, level, pliers, cordless drill, sawzall.

PROJECT COVERUP

Donkey Lips put us on to another project that is just down the street. There is a 100+ year old cemetery at the end of Marion Avenue that was literally covered up by trees and undergrowth. Volunteers have begun to bring it back to where it should be, but now they need some heavy lifting. F3 is tasked with laying a thick bed of mulch over the entire plot of land to kill off the vegetation. We need strong backs and weak minds.

Tools: Wheelbarrows, shovels, rakes, pitchforks, pruning shears, maybe a chainsaw or two.

THE BIG PICTURE

F3’s mission is to plant, grow and serve  small workout groups to invigorate male community leadership. Service is a major component of leadership. It is one of my burning desires to build bridges. Across race, age, creed, nationality,  basically any gulf between “US” and “THEM”. Working on these projects gives “us” a huge opportunity to reach “them”. How many sad clowns live within a 1000′ radius of these two projects? How many lives can we impact by leveraging a little bit of our time to help others?

Join us. Sign up and show up.

Aye!

Against The Wind

YHC didn’t plan it this way, but todays theme turned out to be “Against the wind.” Yes, the weather was windy.  But that had nothing on the Category 5 tornado of toots and the longwinded mumblechatter from the PAX.  Even a stirring quote by the late Barbara Bush couldn’t muffle the PAX this am.  SMH

Warmup

As Chainsaw heads to the flag to circle up the first shots are fired of Fart-mageddon.

Warmup exercises consist of SSH, Windmills, Copperhead Plyo Jump Squats (I made that up), Merkins, all IC in various quantities like 23, 11, 16, 8, etc.

The PAX were left to wonder, are these numbers from a “Clemson score”, “number of times Stallion has missed a workout this month”, “winning lottery ticket”, or “number of times BA was killed today by Paula Dean” etc. Well, only savants like Woodchip and YHC can truly understand this level of advanced mathematics.  The rest of you will be left to wonder.

The Main THANG

Mosey to block pile. The only reasonable explanation YHC can give for today’s flurry of flatulence is that maybe Baby Beasley invited the PAX over for his trademark pre-workout meal of cabbage and deviled eggs???

  1. Thrusters/Merkins sets of 21, 15, 9 reps hold 6″ on the 6
  2. Goblet squats/kettlebell swings sets of 21, 15, 9 reps Air chair on the 6
  3. Triceps/Upright Rows sets of 21, 15, 9 reps Flutter kicks on the 6
  4. Lunges w/block OH/Burpees over the block sets of 21, 15, 9 reps Leg raises on the 6

Put blocks up and line up at the first light pole for 75 yd sprints X 10 with 30 second rest between. 1st & 2nd place winners of the heats were rewarded with a tire to pull.  Although it was a weak field, Skinny Pete let us know he won his division again.

Mosey back to the flag for Mary

Mary—plankorama on the 6, various ab exercises

Announcements

Mudrun 5/19, Prefontaine tomorrow at Byerly track, Christmas in April 4/28, F3 camping trip 4/28

Moleskin

Full disclosure here: YHC ripped off the main portion of the Q from one posted by F3 Chaser the other day on Twitter.  It looked pretty decent on paper, but honestly YHC was a little disappointed, especially after Stepshow’s suckfest on Tuesday.  YHC even added another round to try to give it a little more umphh.  Oh well…

During announcements, the Pax asked Stallion about Tuesdays Operation Arousal to get him out of bed, but he quickly deferred to Chief Arouser, Judge Judy. Stallion then quickly took back over, telling his version of the story which included details about his underwear, the status of his “wood” and what kind of blanky he was using.  It started getting out of hand, even without Barfly present, so the Q finally had to cap off the announcements to allow time for the Devo.

Devo mentioned a couple of recent events: freak fatal accident on Southwest airlines flight and HMS lockdown yesterday.  A quote from Barbara Bush “At the end of your life, you will never regret not having passed one more test, not winning one more verdict, or not closing one more deal.  You will regret time not spent with a spouse, a friend, a child, or a parent.”  Take time to love those close to you.

Aye!
