When: 12/19/2018

  • QIC: Trojan
  • The PAX: Guitar Hero, Mufasa, H-Bomb, Taco, Cruiser, Nimbus (DR from TN), Britney, YHC (QIC)

8 PAX > 0 FNGs were ALARMed when they saw all of the presents. Not to worry, they would all be merry (or Mary) by the end of it all!


HO HO HO! The Gloom was a nice 53* with light fog overhead. We managed to avoid the rain in the area; another Christmas miracle!


YHC is not a professional. F3 workouts are voluntary and FREE – you are here voluntarily #YouAgainstYou. Modify as needed. Notify the Q or rest of Pax of any serious medical conditions #PushYourselfButDontHurtYourself.

The Thang


  • Mosey around the loop: buttkickers, high-knees, SSR, SSL
  • Abe Vigoda x10 IC


  • Arms – Shoulder press w/Darlin’ x25 CC
  • Legs – Lunges w/Darlin’ x50 OYO
  • Abs – LBC x75 IC
  • R – Rosalita x100 OYO
  • Merkins – Merkins x125 OYO

The children of The Marathon were overjoyed with the generosity of the PAX as we delivered presents after each set.

There is always, and I mean ALWAYS, time for Mary:

  • Low flutter x25 IC – keep ’em at 6 inches for a nice, slow 10 count
  • Freddy Mercury x25 IC – keep ’em at 6 inches for a nice, slow 10 count
  • High flutter x25 IC – keep ’em at 6 inches for a 30 count to end the pain

Following the WoD, YHC stayed in The Gloom for a little extra BD:

  • 100 Merkins
  • 1-mile run
  • 100 BBSUs
  • 1-mile run
  • 100 Pull-ups
  • 1-mile run
CountORama and NameORama

8 PAX > 0 FNGs


TAPs for Cruiser’s son Chris, H-Bombs BIL, Digit in the Carolina’s, and anyone traveling over the holidays.


Halfway through the gauntlet, and each WoD has been harder than the day before. Continuing to push myself after the BD to do more. There is no growth in the comfort zone.

For those few of you who have not yet signed on – get onto BAND today, either via smartphone app (links here: apple / android), or via the website. This is our new preferred Comz Channel going forward – download it and join the band called “F3 Houston” to get all the info on F3 Houston. Here is where you can learn who are the upcoming Qs, sign up yourself to be the Q, read our Backblasts for each WO, learn details of our next CSAUPs, and as usual, make fun of the guys in the Pax in general with some good ol’ Mumble Chatter.

Honored, humbled, and hungry for more. – Trojan
