  • PRELUDE

    22 bad ass men, in 28 degree weather, started at 0700 on the dot with all on time…or so I thought.  After some words of wisdom about looking at ourselves as heros, we moseyed to the north end zone of the illustrious football field of the West Carteret Fighting Patriots.  With some Katy Perry jamming on my daughters disco machine, we began

    Monkey Humpers x 20 (IC)

    Cotton Pickers x 20 (IC)

    NOTE : It was at this point that a wayward soul named Dreamliner rolled in.  He came from Virginia and said the traffic on I95 was awful hence the lateness.  I found this minimally believable but let it slide and gave us the joy of..

    FINAL THOUGHTS

    Having just completed the USMC special forces short card…

    3 miles

    120 pushups

    40 burpees

    myriad amount of other exercises

    we were unfortunately out of time.  We moseyed to parking lot for namerama and COT.

    After namerama (warm welcome to Dreamliner from F3 Hampton Roads) we did a quick announcement and I gave the stage to My T Sharp.  He asked us to reflect on what we were thankful for in 2016.  Some of the things I heard in no particular order…

    -F3

    -Family

    -Friends

    -Faith

    -Forgiveness

    (Is there an F theme going on here?)

    We were taken out in prayer by Father Rameses…who once again nailed it.

    I am proud of every single one of you who showed up and DID NOT QUIT. Way to push through an admittedly tough workout.  I challenge every single one of you to be #courageous and #inspiring in 2017!

    Aye
