Pirates looking for Plunder
This morning we are looking for pirate plunder. We paired off and ran as a team from spot to spot around Webb Bridge Park looking for the (mostly) pre planted exercise instructions.
At each station, each PAX must complete 99 reps of the primary listed exercise. Partner 1 will choose how many of the 99 total reps he will complete. While doing these reps, Partner 2 will do the active recovery exercise listed. The active recovery exercise reps are not counted. Partners will work through each exercise until each PAX has completed 99 reps of the primary exercise. (e.g. Partner 1 may choose to do 10 reps and then switch with Partner 2, doing 10 reps until done with 99, or Partner 1 may choose to do 20 and switch, or knock out all 99 at once). When finished, the group will continue to the next station and follow this method of completion at Stations 1-7.
Station 1 clue was “On the steps by the plastic grass”.

Always great to see new guys at F3. Welcome downranger Darkside and FNG Detour.
I’ve been coming to Widowmaker / Black Widow for 7 years. None of the guys that were there at my first Widowmaker were there today, but the F3 spirit lives on!
Why 99 reps today? I don’t know. Because it seemed hard. Push in your everyday life to the hard work, hard conversations, hard decisions. Doing hard things makes us better. We grow when we challenge ourselves.
