THE SCENE: Low 40s and light (to moderate) rain
F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER
Moroccan night clubs
Mosey out of the start pavilion and around the sidewalk to the next pavilion. The ground had been turned into a mudhole between the sidewalk, so we moseyed past to the next pavilion (not the only audible this morning). I told the PAX that we have four pavilion stations, each with three exercises of the same structure (initially 20 reps first exercise, 15 reps of the second exercise, 10 reps of the third exercise). They got to pick how many rounds of each we did, without knowing the exercises. The fun part is they could choose 3,4,5 or 6 rounds but once you use a number, you can no longer use it. So they are choosing blindly on how many rounds we do.
Pavilion 1 (PAX chose 6 rounds):
- Dips x20
- Decline merkins x15
- Four count (HR) merkins x10
This proved to be a huge mistake on my part, so after three rounds of that, Q called an audible. 10 reps of each exercise to finish the final three rounds. Finish and mosey around the sidewalk to the pavilion beside the Lion’s Club building.
Pavilion 2 (PAX chose four rounds):
- Calf raises x10
- Lunges x10 (each leg)
- Bulgarian split squats x10 (each leg)
Mosey out of the pavilion onto the sidewalk and back (tables were set up differently at each pavilion and this one was better).
Pavilion 3 (PAX chose 5 rounds):
- Carolina dry docks x10
- Table rows x10
- Single arm pulls on the poles x10 (each arm)
No time to mosey, just stayed put for round four.
Pavilion 4 (PAX were left with 3 rounds):
- Smurf jacks x10
- Plank jacks x10
- Burpees x5
That was enough to use up the time, no Mary today.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Reused my word from yesterday, a C.S. Lewis quote:
Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it.”
Again, just shows how much people tend to worry about the truths in their lives. Just stress to live by your word, be true to each other and maybe even more importantly be true to yourself.
