Question : Do you like to say “I was there when this started?”
Answer : TWO were there at the unofficial, not-yet-launched, (soft-launch) of F3 OakPark.
Weather – perfect
PAX – Kodak, FNG (yet to be named buddy Dave)
- 4 point Lunges
- Break Dancers
Thang 1: (Parking Garage)
7’s – Merkin at the bottom, Burpee at the top of ramp.
Thang 2: (Turf Field)
Partner 1 does Jumping Squats, Squats, Lunges
while Partner 2 Ape Walks, Bear Crawls, Crab Walks …
Quick End for parenting obligations; no COT or name for said FNG.
This beatdown was set-up following a request from DR PAX looking for a workout on the West side of Chicago … I know, Right?? These Charlotte boys are not used to traveling several miles for F3, but seem to have an Area of Operation (AO) on every corner .. never the less, I was happy to accomodate as Oak Park is on the radar for expansion and I wanted to test out a potential AO; plus try to get some local pax and new guys involved.
DR Cancels. I already put the bat-signal out to existing pax and interested friends; did not get any Hard Commits. SO, I knew I needed to post anyways and was really glad to see a friend waiting when I arrived, (lve sooner next time, I suppose). Solid guy, great hockey background and as I am a ‘middle of the pack’ athlete, he pushed me hard during Thang 1 when it was one-on-one. Hope to see him Downtown to introduce him to the other boys and show-off the great AO we have in the City, give him a proper F3 nickname!
In a race w/ F3 Evanston to be the next AO within F3 Chicago’s region, I’d have to say that our kick-off on a not-so-gloomy morning was a success. One man at a time.
