All of the morning announcements, slack comments, and mumble chatter about the latest RVA homegrown CSAUP will finally come to an end after Friday. The only thing you’ll hear about the Frozen Triangle Part Deux after that is mumble chatter about how much fun you missed out on if you weren’t there. We’ve gotten some hard commits, soft commits, offers to help and we appreciate all of the offers and updates on participation. A few final notes for everyone: We start at 6:00 am at Dogpile – that’s the only thing about the day that will be typical Bring a…

If you have been posting or reading Slack you have been hearing about an upcoming CSAUP – The Frozen Triangle.

Give a thumbs up or something else if you are a soft commit. Many folks have reached out to Rosie and me to let us know they want to help. Thank you. We will be touching base with you…

Lots of guys have provided their 2023 Challenges, both individual and group. Thank you. I have two private challenges so far that people have shared with me. Good stuff. I’ll add one for the group. The Purpose of F3 is to “… plant, grow, and serve …for the invigoration of male community leadership.” We do this through all 5 principles. Dredd and OBT selected principles that are very simple and entirely intentional. Each man should strive to live all 5 F3 principles every week. This includes one easily overlooked: live the Rotating Q. Some guys Q all the time. Some…

Tuesday 11/22 at Spider Run we will be running a 10k. The link to the route is below and I’ll also describe it for individuals that have not run this route previously. The trails are slightly modified from the official route but everything else is the same. Headlamps strongly recommended. It’s 6.2 miles with plenty of elevation. Ideally, we will all be finishing at the same time, right around 615. If you think you need an hour and 15 to finish a 10k, play your departure for around 5am. I’ll be there just before 5am to assist with any questions.…

*****Pre-Blast***** I invite the PAX to come out to the 11th Annual Shawn G. Hogan Memorial Beer Mile.
