F3 Chicago – Zoo Crew AO

Lincoln Park Zoo Admin Office (LPZAO)

Tuesday, October 20, 2020 (Ten Twenty Twenty Twenty)

33°, Cool Chilly

PAX: Homer, Noonan, Rancid

QIC: Rancid

Still getting used to the extra time for layering up and all-around moving slower due to colder temps…Rancid came in raaaather hot for this one! Noonan and Homer were already assembled at the front of LPZAO. YHC (Your Humble Correspondent) hates leaving the boys hanging – even if only for that one extra minute! First bumps, howd’y’do’s, then right into it:

0601 – WELCOME, BROTHERS!

F3 – Fitness, Fellowship and Faith

It is the mission of F3 to plant, grow and serve small workout groups for the invigoration of male community leadership. F3 is always free, it is open to all men, held outdoors, led in rotation, and it ends with circle of trust. Introduction and disclaimer: I ain’t no pro. Shamelessly modify, as necessary. 

No FNG’s. 3 PAX. 

Let’s rock!

POST-THANG

DOOMSDAY HUMPERS

Monkey Humpers IC

  Each man leads 1 cadence

  Count goes around clockwise

  Until last man standing

OK…so this disintegrated quickly. Intended this one as a generous “nod” to Chicago’s renowned Doomsday Clock, and this just kind of didn’t work as I planned. HOWEVER!!!! I know now what went wrong. If we are each going to take a part in the lead (leading a “cadence”) it can’t actually be in cadence; it’s simply a count. I totally forgot that’s how Doomsday Clock works – is by each man taking the individual count for the “down”. Sooo…long story short…we’ll be trying Doomsday Humpers again (real soon)!

Mosey back to the Shovel Flag

Make sure you don’t lose touch.

Amongst the PAX. With our families.

Friends. Colleagues. Neighbors and fellow citizens. 

In a world of Gloom, F3 is our searchlight. Pathways illuminate.

(Noonan added: in a world of Gloom, F3 is the Glue)

Noonan took us out in prayer.

All PAX joined for car-side coffeteria. 

Smiles were shared and good company enjoyed.

Thank you, Sky Q!
