Several of the Houston PAX are headed to Austin next week for the new AO Launch, followed by “The Capital Ruck Tour” to raise awareness for Operation Enduring Warrior. Our training for this 20 mile event has hit a few bumps over the past couple months so YHC decided to step it up a bit today. Let’s have some fun.

22 PAX with 1 FNG. Welcome Jamie Brick aka F3Carlton and #ABH #ProudPappa Kings Point
TAP’s were sent out to KFC and his daughter Ava, Vlasik and his father, Britney’s friend in Cali battling the fires as well as YHC’s daughter in law and 3.0’s as they struggle with the loss of their husband and father, my son Eric and our brother Big Wheel.
These last 3 weeks have been trying. I just want to wake from this horrible dream. The decision to get back on my workout routine was easy, keep the mind and body active. The decision to Q was a little harder. When we’re on our 6 I look up at the stars for a sign that he’s looking down on us. The outpouring of love and support has been unlike anything I’ve ever witnessed. Nationwide, family, friends, customers, the high school baseball team. Smiles to tears to smiles to tears. For me personally if it wasn’t for my brothers of the gloom, this would be much tougher. As we stand shoulder to shoulder each morning I can’t help but remember everyone on their knees praying with me as Big Wheel struggled to come back to us. As we go forward and try to find the good that comes from a tragic situation this will make us stronger, better #HIM’s. Very soon we’re going to plant the Big Wheel shovel flag at the top of Mount Houston. I’m not quite ready, but soon and I know Eric will be there as will the F3Nation, ready to support our family and any other family that is suffering. From my family, Thank You All, I love you guys.
