69 but felt like 74.  Slight breeze was quite nice.


Started in the upper pavilion and introduced the 10 pound sandbag we’d be carrying with us for the duration.  Best efforts to not let it touch the ground.  Everyone shouldered the burden.

Burpee broad jump suicides every two parking spots and back to start
Back to face the big hill

Indian run.  Lead guy holds 30 pound ruck plate overhead.  2nd guy held the sandbag.  Last guy dropped and performed 5 burpees and sprinted to tap the new last guy on the shoulder and continued to the front to grab the plate.  Plate guy then took sandbag.  Continue until all had performed the burpees and sprinted up.

The Soccer goals were facing each other roughly 30 yards apart and we lined up  along one goal line and faced the other.

Iron Butt and  I have been discussing purpose recently.  He pointed me to a page in Freed To Lead that was a good reminder of F3’s impact.  Here’s a short excerpt:

Another way to look at Purpose is that it is the solution to a man’s Life Problem.  There is nothing philosophical about a man’s Life Problem.  It’s simply the thing that bug’s him the most, and the thing that nags at him and won’t go away, unless he sets about solving it.  Most men learn to live with their Life Problems, which is a big part of how they end up as SadClowns.  A few men refuse to accept their Life Problems.  They stubbornly set out to find a solution.  If they succeed, they find their Purpose.  If they pursue their Purpose with great skill and fortitude, they have impact.  Big Impact.

Chances are you’re thinking about your problem(s) as you read that.  Find a brother and talk about it.  Perhaps this a good time to find a mentor or someone who has been through what you’re going through.  Or maybe now is a good time to mentor someone else?  


PTL for the bathrooms being unlocked even though the gates were locked.  TRUST ME DUDES.

Candu’s hydraulics were were point today.
