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.
Opened with 3f’s, Mission, principles.
PAX: Buttermaker, Shakira, Tupac, Jennay, Casper, Woodstock (Q)
Right on down to rucking, no coupons – covered ~3 miles through the fort, over the bridge, up the river side trail and looped back along the towpath. Used “gaggle” formation principle to discuss Growruck, rucking equipment/footwear, life, f3, and all the things. Decided rucks would be infinitely more awesome/impressive if we lived in bear country. Covered some (probably accurate) history regarding the towpaths/sidecut, and expressed genuine awe at real man’s feats of engineering still in use today (river locks).
Tupac was the 6.
COT, Prayers up for all F3 men posting and fartsacking, health and recovery for our injured brethren, health, happiness, and wellness for the expectant/recent fathers (and all children/M’s), God’s plan for all children stuck in tough family situations, Tupac to beat a (mostly) bad rap (<<<see what I did there?), and just being thankful for the beautiful morning gloom, tiny flakes of happiness descending from above, moist and slick mossy earth, and the soon passing of winter.
