Be the Light


For those who have been to Hoedown, it is a dark place. So, unlike the rest of the group, I wear a headlamp. Before we got started, I walked over to Faceplant who was tying his shoes. ‘Don’t move, I can finally see what I’m doing.’ It’s taken 69 years, but I have found my purpose in life.

I got back last week from a two-week trip to Germany, plus an overnight trip to DC. This is my second workout since returning from Germany. It’s good to be back.



THIS SATURDAY: Gridiron 8-year anniversary convergence: I understand this was the first F3 workout in Richmond. We’re starting at 7:30 instead of 7:00 to give the Crucible folks the opportunity to be here. Parking may be an issue so park at Short Pump Middle School and come over to the football field.

Use this as an opportunity to call up folks you haven’t seen post in a while. There will be refreshments afterwards.

Saturday afternoon: Sit and Sip: Contact Gomer Pyle with questions. Cornhole tournament. Bonfire, Overnight camping trip.
