The BackBlast:

Today the Pax observed the 4 year anniversary (officially 9/23) of F3 Chicago. To do it right, the Pax committed to executing all 3 F’s on the same day: beatdown (1st), dinner (2nd), and a fundraiser (3rd). Unsurprisingly, the Pax (including those beyond the city) came together to crush the goals before them: a smokefest this morning, what is sure to be a lively dinner tonight, and a fundraiser that exceeded its goals by 211% ($651.73 was raised among the four regions for 1,955 meals). HIMs!!

  1. Side Straddle Hop
  2. Frankenstein
  3. Triple Squat
  4. Carolina Drydock
  5. Groyner
  6. Watership Down (Murder Bunnies/Burpees, Squats, Merkins, Big Boys)
  7. Wheel of Fortune (Coupons: Bi Curl, Overhead Press, Goblet Squat, Thrusters)
  8. Old Faithful
  9. Burpee in the Bull Ring
  10. Steady Plank
  11. LBCs
  12. Amerian Hammer

On a post-beatdown high, the Pax had an excellent conversation about The King from Qsource replete with great questions and insights (so good in fact, YHC believes the conversation far exceeded the read).

Naked Moleskin I: Percy locked his keys in his car. Lessons learned/affirmed: Leave no man behind (which happened intuitively) and make sure your car insurance has roadside assistance (whether chosen fortuitously or intentionally, Percy walked away with $0 in added expense and made all the richer hanging out with these guys [two thumbs aiming back at the Pax]).

Naked Moleskin II: Will our coupons be confiscated by the Zoo after being caught in the act of stashing one coupon? Let’s hope not!

Congrats to all Pax of F3 in Chicagoland for making the last 4 years one of the best sucks in town; here’s to many more years embracing the sucks and doing hard things well!
