The Q:

Fort Meigs


Perrysburg, ruck

What the ruck is a ruck?  A hike with a weighted backpack (approx 30 lbs) while stopping along the brisk walk to do some invigorating exercise. Excellent 1st F (fitness) and 2nd F (fellowship). If an FNG (Friendly New Guy) is a bit timid to post for a workout the ruck is a great intro to the pax.

    Workout: Embrace the Ruck
    Date: 8/27/19
    Location: The Necropolis…aka Fort Meigs Ohio’s 1812 Battlefield
    QIC: Geppetto
    PAX: 8 total –Flo, Bongo, Red Ryder, Bluto, Hazmat, Geppetto, Van Gogh, Casper
    No FNG’s, so right into Mission and Principles.
    F3 – Fitness, Fellowship, Faith
    Mission –Plant, grow and serve small workout groups for men for the invigoration of male community leadership.
    The core principals of F3 are that it must:
    • Be free of charge
    • Be open to all men
    • Be held outdoors, rain or shine, heat or cold
    • Be led by men who participate in the workout in a rotating fashion, with no training or certification necessary. You versus you. Modify or stop an exercise if you need to. The most important thing is that nobody gets hurt.
    • End with a Circle of Trust

    The “Thang”: Moderately paced ruck to Orleans Park for some optional ruck on/ruck off PT. Bear crawl/lunge down 15 yards and back. 20 squats OYO. Bear crawl/lunge down, crawl bear/lunge back. 10 merkins OYO. Bear crawl/lunge down and back. 20 squats OYO. Rucked back to Necropolis

    Total ruck distance: Approx. 2.4 miles. Total PT time: Approx. 10 minutes

    We ended in a Circle of Trust with Count-O-Rama, Name-O-Rama, The Six, Announcements and a Ball of Man with prayer. Flo was the Six and shared his story about how the fitness is great but he really enjoys the 3rd F Faith aspect of F3. Got his name as he’s a State Farm Agent. A quick prayer of thankfulness and gratefulness to have the physical ability to exercise and for God to bless us as we start our day before the skies opened and we all got poured on.

    Moleskin/Spreadsheet from the Gloom:
    • Some PAX put in work before the ruck/run by completing IronPax Week 0 Preseason workout.
    • Got yelled at by a lady walking her dog that we were being too loud. We need to be more respectful and quieter when rucking through neighborhoods. She could have articulated it better but her point was received.
