Richmond PAX – many of you were involved in spreading F3 to Charlottesville, VA this summer (May 20, 2017 to be exact) and we are thankful for it.  We’ve been meaning for some time to get our first round of shirts available and printed but have been waiting for MudGear to re-stock the Loose T v2.  Well, it’s getting colder and we’re getting impatient so we are going to go ahead and print our first run of LONG SLEEVE (and short sleeves too, in several styles, just not Loose T v2).  Some of you asked us to let you know…

Happy Hour: I propose that we consider trying a Wednesday 8-10 PM event. The evening time is less convenient in that you can’t swing by after work but for the dads in the group (and there are a lot) this is probably the only time that will work. F3 actually has an acronym for Wednesday Night happy hour…

ANNOUNCEMENTS None this morning because I wanted to spend a bit of extra time in the Circle of Trust NAKED MOLESKIN (NMS) After an absolutely awful weekend for Charlottesville, the Commonwealth of Virginia, and the United States generally, it was especially nice to see 11 PAX roll into Washington Park for an early morning beat down and to just be together. We had the good fortune of welcoming our first French-Canadian member of F3 (by lineage, he’s actually from Northern Virginia like everyone else), who brews beer at Random Row Brewing Co. and whose new F3 name is, of course,…

AO: Blackout (Booker T. Washington Park, Charlottesville, VA) Total Time: 45:00 Distance Traveled: 1.05 miles ANNOUNCEMENTS Shirts: EMAIL ME if you want one, sounds like the preference so far is for technical shirts (as opposed to cotton t-shirts); F3 is a non-profit company whose only source of revenue (which is needed to maintain the webpage and spread the word) is a licensing agreement between MudGear and F3. So when you buy one of these shirts you are helping support F3. F3 also just started a foundation called F3F which accepts tax-deductible donations and distributes grants, you can read more about…

ANNOUNCEMENTS Big Daddy is Becoming a Daddy: huge congratulations are in order for our very own Big Daddy, who is becoming an actual Daddy!

Hopefully to start in two weeks (8/10/17). More details from the Commish Q Schedule: (8/2) Speed Limit, (8/5) Quagmire, (8/9) Goodwill, (8/12) TBD. Let me know if you are interested in being the Q. The requirements are pretty basic – run the workout and the Circle of Trust,…

NAKED MOLESKIN (NMS) Our biggest Wednesday yet! Hopefully it was it worth your time. A couple new things on this one. New thing #1 – barefoot running. Excellent way to build up your lower body in particular foot and ankle strength and stability. This is how you were born to run (and, guess what – there is a book about it called Born To Run, by Christopher McDougall, and it is an amazing read). Look at any three year old – they run barefoot, and on their toes. Or at Abebe Bikila, the Ethiopian who won the 1960 Olympic Marathon…

NAKED MOLESKIN (NMS) Week #2 for Charlottesville F3 flying solo (thank you F3_RVA!). 10 returning PAX and the good fortune of welcoming one FNG (Dysentery). Fast moving workout despite the fact most of us had burning thighs thanks to True North’s Suzanne Somers-style Thigh (or Quad) Master on Steroids workout from 5/12/17.   A lot to cover and in fact ran out of time so had to drop a couple special presents designed for the PAX (next time!). Also, take note, Fannie Mae dropped off 12 CMUs after the workout… get your arms and shoulders ready boys. AO: Blackout (Booker…
