- When: 08/08/2017
- QIC: Weedwacker
- The PAX: Duggar, Stealer, Cobra Khan, Smokey the Bear, Michaelangelo (FNG), WhatDid, Usain Bolt (FNG), Merlot, Crosswalk (R), TP, Weedwacker (YHC)
11 brave PAX overcame cataclysmic weather events, locked entrance gates, and the nervous anticipation of the first weekday LC workout to keep the momentum going at the emerging focus of F3 awesomeness known as #thetrinity.
77 Degrees, 100% humidity, and EXTREMELY wet and muddy. Simply gorgeous.
YHC is not a professional. This is a free, voluntary workout. Push yourself, don’t hurt yourself, and modify or stop as needed.
Gather around the flags in the wet, spongy grass.
Feel the moisture penetrating your shoes, socks, and skin, and begin to giddily anticipate how awful your car will smell at the end of your drive home this morning as the sweat and dirt and grass clippings and bacteria and fungi begin to exponentially accumulate to envelop you.
Marvel at the massive,intimidating high-voltage power lines above and envision them as a metaphor for the power we have within ourselves.
Listen to the squish/squash of the mud slapping against your calves as you walk gingerly to the flag, and smile, knowing that much of this mud will inevitably end up on the floors of your home in about 1 hour despite all of your futile efforts to keep it outside.
Brace yourself for the fury of the wife (if applicable) later this morning, as she wonders how and why her once-civilized life-companion has devolved into a dehydrated, semi-ambulatory, lactic-acid-producing, oxygen-starved, non-steroidal-antiinflammatory-medication-consuming mess with the cleanliness of a second-world barnyard animal before the sun even peeked sheepishly over the horizon.
Prepare to remind your wife (if applicable) that, by repeating this behavior over time, her physiologically-limited barnyard animal will slowly transform into a powerful example of confident and strong and (at the risk of overstepping my boundaries might-I-add) GORGEOUS masculinity the likes of which she hasn’t seen or felt or smelled in real life for many years, perhaps ever, and that she will reap the benefits of this seemingly-asinine behavior in all aspects of her existence for the years and decades to follow.
Ok, let’s get on with it.

This series of events resulted in the PAX appearing to be completely and utterly exercised.
CountORama and NameORama
11 PAX with 7 second-helpings and 2 FNGs (Michaelangelo and Usain Bolt). I can feel the growing momentum of #thetrinity deep within my bones.
We had a long discussion led by Duggar and WhatDid about how F3 can serve as a vehicle for improving ourselves and how that improvement translates into improving our relationships, productivity, and leadership in all aspects of our lives. Great contributions from Michaelangelo, TP, and many of the other PAX as well. TClaps to WhatDid for taking us out.
It is truly remarkable to see so many men coming back to #thetrinity in the gloom of a wet morning to build themselves as well as the group as a whole. I know that this launch will be successful and the League City crew already has the right men in place to lead and grow F3 in this community. I feel honored to have the opportunity to contribute during these early days and look forward to many more early-morning commutes to watch this group thrive and expand. TClaps to TP for being the driving force – and to Duggar for putting the “driving” in “driving force”. Let’s keep this moving forward.
Next workout at #thetrinity – Saturday 0630.
