We had a great workout at the Marathon, which is the shiny new toy in the F3 Houston arsenal. A great park with running track, green field that is perfect for all kinds of exercises….. and a nearby 5-story tower of fun, with steep ramps for running, overhead bars for lifts, and stairways for constant, intense muscle burning activity. Add 20-30 pounds of rucking weights, and you have yourself a fun party!


Perfectly clear, 45 degrees, 0% humidity

7 PAX came out for the beatdown. We started with laps around the park, mixed with little baby arm circles, Moroccan night clubs, abe vigodas, grass grabbers, and side straddle hops.

Thereafter, we each took 20-30 pounds of ruck plates and mosied over to the parking lot, with weight lifts, left, high and right. On statin, we went to Floor 5 for a BLIMP modification. 5th floor 100 big boy sit ups, with partners running the inclined length of the lot and trading off each lap.

4th floor 100 lunges each leg, with partners running the lot and trading off each lap

3rd Floor, 30 imperial walkers, then a ruck weight tour of the floor. Just beautiful.

2nd Floor, 50 pullups OYO on the rebar…. not good for the hands, but we pushed through it.

1st floor, down with the ruck plates, and huff it back to the flags, for 20 little baby crunches, then 10 bridges, and then 20 flutter kicks.


Sending thoughts out to all who have been challenged by the Storm, to the Swendsen Family, and to all of the men and women in uniform who are downrange for the Holidays – keep them in your thoughts.


It was great to get through my second Q, and I look forward to the next one.
