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.
Backblast – November 27, 2018
AO: The Necropolis – Fort Meigs Historic Battlefield – Perrysburg, OH
PAX: Geppetto (QIC), Bourbon, Woodstock, Bambi, Coal, Chew Toy, Dutch, Stark, Jennay, Mile High, Buttermaker
Workout: Ruck to Riverside
No FNG’s so right into F3 Mission and Core Principles:
F3 – Fitness, Fellowship, Faith
Mission –Plant, grow and serve small workout groups for men for the invigoration of male community leadership.
The core principles 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
Count-O-Rama to ensure we end with the same number we start with – Eleven.
The “Thang”: After COR, Bourbon, Stark, Dutch, Woodstock, Jennay and Chew Toy headed out on their run and the remaining PAX gathered for the ruck. YHC, Bambi, Mile High, Coal and Buttermaker rucked to Riverside Park and planted the flag for some quick PT. Twenty-five in cadence Air Squats, Imperial Walkers, and Merkins. Rucked back to Ft. Meigs. Rotated the flag every 10 minutes. Covered 2.8 miles.
Count-O-Rama – Nine (Chew Toy and Dutch had to leave early)
Sharing of the six – Stark. EH’d by Cooter. Used Jedi mind tricks and subliminal messages in order to get his F3 name which comes from owning a sheet metal business. Admits that without F3 he would not be working out in sub-freezing temperatures. Likes that so many PAX step up and lead the workouts.
Announcements – Holiday party on December 8th. Change of evening workout day and time to Tuesdays at six PM, still at Levis Commons clocktower.
Ball of Man – Prayers for those family and friends who are expecting babies. Prayers for the holiday season and those less fortunate and to remember the true meaning of Christmas.
Spreadsheets from the Gloom: Cold and windy morning. Great conversation and 2nd F while rucking.
