T-claps to all of the RVA #redwoods for coming out this morning.  Was great to have you in the mix and YHC can tell this is going to be a strong PAX that develops in and around Richmond.

Wow…the Richmond youth football scene is alive and well.  Parents and kids descended on that AO pre 0700 and were tailgating like it was RFK in ’91.  ACDC and Metallica were cranking early from the speakers and was a nice welcome to our pain fest on the nearby fields.  Enjoy that next week fellas.

Toga and Johnsonville did a solid job taking Q duties at the inaugural plant.  OBT taught you boys well.  That’s what it is all about and no doubt more can step in next week.

Have to send a special thanks to Donor Kebab who showed true RVA hospitality to Nancy Drew and YHC upon arrival Friday evening.  Cold beer, a warm meal and a place to crash was key.  Send our thanks to the M as well DK.

Coffeeteria location seemed to be a pretty good fit.  Was great to get to know everyone a little more that came over.  #2ndF

Shout outs from the morning include:

Always great to see Father\Son duos in the Gloom: Earthworm\Grub and Orville\Wilbur.  Wilbur looking to help us plant that LA (Lovely Augusta) flag soon from what I can tell.

Cousteau adding another JMU alum to the ranks of F3 Nation…gotta love that.  We roll strong down in CLT Brother.  Come visit.

Snowden loves his name.  Bleeder nailed it.

Cauliflower was pushing the pace at the front with Orville, Camper and Conspiracy…probably more.  Keep raising the bar fellas…will make you and everyone else stronger.

Holly stayed with it for the entire hour…have to applaud the fortitude.  Nicely done and hope to see your name in the PAX list next week.

This workout was old hat for JP.  He’ll be leading in no time.


Encourage all of you guys to get active on twitter and start talking it up.  It’s a great way to build the 2nd F amongst the PAX and share the news of your new AOs and workouts you’re planning. @F3Richmond is your home base.

Speaking of…0530, Thursdays at Mary Munford, bootcamp.  First weekday workout already on the calendar.  Start thinking of a name for these workouts.  #character

And send a note to Superman at reeves.davis@gmail.com for your website login and credentials.  Send hospital name and F3 handle.  Thanks Superman.

T-claps to TML and Nancy Drew for making the trip up.  Disney, Sir Topham, Chong Li and a posse from Raleigh are all heading up next week to join in the fun.  Work your own EHs this week and bring one or two buddies with you when you post.  Bleeder already has it down to a science with the front door chauffeur service…no one can deny that.

Was an honor to lead you men this morning and start to see the magic of F3 start to take root.  Own it, build it, lead it, share it. #mission #leap
