Nothing like having a Q that you signed up for 6 month ago to get you out of a bad spell of fartsacking. Between travel and being lazy, it has been a minute since I've been out at Norseman. But way back in the beginning of 2023 I signed up for 6 or 7 Q slots, and so here we are! Props to Knight Rider and Snowman for the solo pre ruck/runs, respectively.


Mosey over to the parking lot for some:
  1. SSH
  2. Weed Pickers
  3. Toy Soldiers
  4. Windmills

The Thang:

Once warm, we moseyed North up the road until finding a decent rock pile. We were going to need these coupons. But first we needed to take them to The Arena. Line up double file, and all the PAX were to rifle carry their chosen coupon while walking past the softball fields, down the path to the Arena. PAX were asked to jog back to front Indian-run style (or "Native American" / "Indigenous peoples" run as Ha-Ha corrected) while walking. Much mumble chatter along the route from Snowman. Stopped halfway for some step ups with coupons on the softball field wall. Callahan started with two little baby coupons, then switched out to a monster coupon, then finally found a 3rd one that was "just right." Once at the arena, we partnered up. One partner would run a lap, while the other would complete an exercise from the circuit:
  • Curls
  • Thrusters
  • Dead Lifts
  • Bent Over Rows
  • Skull Crushers
  • Man Makers
Completed two circuits before a brisk run back to the flag (almost making it by 6:15).


Lots of opportunities coming up with the holidays for toy drives, food drives, etc. Prayers for continued recovery for our long-lost site Q.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

Best part of F3 is the accountability to get back out there, even after going through a season of fartsacking. Life gets busy, and it's easy to miss. But really great to know that our crew is always there, in the Gloom, ready to push one another and get back out there. Grateful to lead!
