F3 started 10 years ago in a middle school parking lot in North Carolina. Unbeknownst but perhaps suspected by the Founders, F3 turned out to be the solution to Sad Clown Syndrome. 24 PAX from around Houston gathered at Eleanor Tinsley Park to celebrate and give thanks for the positive influence F3 has had on our lives. The PAX were given a choice: standard F3 boot camp string of pearls or Heavy Hogg SoP with a ruck. Unbeknownst but perhaps suspected by the PAX, a steep hill awaited at every pain station.
Conditions: Glorious! 42d and damp grass

YHC entered 2020 thinking perhaps I was a #HIM and not sure if I was there or what was next. I enter 2021 knowing I’m an Amateur but with a path to turning Pro. Q’ing a workout with so many studs is yet another reminder of the work that remains undone. Wherever you are on the journey to #HIM – and whatever challenges or opportunities the last year threw at you – keep posting, use the Concentrica template to allocate your thoughts and energy, and Always Be Headlocking!
