    • T’claps to proud papa Vlasic (The After’s uncle) for EH’ing this 19-yr old and bringing him out to receive a serious beatdown.
    • Chicken Ranch gets naming rights as our FNG represents The After to most sad clowns’ The Before. #AfterOnly3Weeks
    • The General worked it hard enough to bring up last night’s dinner (#hopefullynotmerlotatthisyoungage) during CoT.  Way to hold in there the whole time and show us how it’s done.  Spewer woulda been proud.

F3 workouts count, as well as any 30+ minutes exercise sessioin you complete (yes, even with your M if you can last that long!?!). Time for YOU to step up for your own @F3_250 #accountability
    • Check the F3 Houston Google Sheet to track your progress.
    • Tweet your weekly workout count to @F3_250 with the hashtag #F3TwoFiddy every Saturday to log on a national level.
  • GrowRuck 03 – New Orleans June 9-11 combines F3 Grow School with a GoRuck Tough. Details to follow. Have no doubt, this will be a transformative event for the PAX that do it, as well as for F3 Houston and F3 Texas. Get excited!
  • Capital 2 Coast Relay October 20-21 from Austin to Corpus Christi
  • F3 COMZ. Because we are only working out together 3-4 hours a week, communication between the Pax is a key way to build our Fellowship as a group. #CommunicationIsKey There are multiple ways to stay in touch: BAND (download the app), Twitter, Facebook, F3Nation.com


  • Word of the Day (WOD): COMPETITION: The healthy process of pitting oneself against another man in an objectively measurable endeavor.

Thank you for allowing me to bring the pain!
