A one time departure from tradition, we started at 6:45 and ended at 8:00 for an extended workout, for some reason this energized the PAX and folks turned out.
We had 5 Q’s today, all were folks who happened to post on the first Raleigh workout and have stuck around.  The Q’s met off site and piled into the back of a truck and rolled in at the turn of 6:45.
This surprise start mixed with a change in normal flow for a workout yielded confusion without delay.
Tclaps to our 2 new FNG’s who posted today.  This was a non stop workout, it was meant to burn and it did!
Wendell Gee’s attempt at small talk during the AMRAP he laid down was more confusing than the 6 different exercises we were supposed to remember.

Sign up and start training this week for the GORUCK – talk to White Shoe
Talk to CK if you are interested in the Blue Ridge Relay
Stay tuned for the RDU convergence in April- date and location to be announced next week

  • I also thank the leadership in Charlotte and all those who helped make F3 possible. It has been a great year!

  • Great lead by the Q’s. Claps to those guys for being there literally since day 1 in Raleigh and blazing the trail for us to follow. Thanks to those who had the vision and commitment to bring F3 to the Capital City, and thanks to our brothers in Charlotte and across F3 Nation for their continued support and encouragement. We are fortunate to be a part of something much bigger than ourselves. Aye!

  • T-claps to the Q’s for the great workout and to the organizers of the event. Job well done on both fronts. A great day to reflect on our growth and appreciate the health that enables us to be this active. Also a nice time to thank those who decided to bring F3 to others on 1/1/11, I am eternally grateful. If the title inspires Cindy to roll up here to visit MH & Q Ball Bearings please give me a heads up so I can make arrangements for recovery the day after 🙂

  • CK – I was there as well…nice job and great to be a part of this group and celebrate one year of F3 in Raleigh!
