Today’s Q would be a special one. They say you are the average of the 5 people you surround yourself with. Well the 19 that posted today would showcase that the Garden is a group you want to be around! 0525 and the Pax was circling up and stretching with the occasional fist bump, and our FNG would be none other than my own Dad coming to join in the Gloom. What a moment and a special memory.

Main Thang – Partner/Hill/Coupon work:
Partners will work together to go down the list of exercises. Start with 10 BB in the middle location and then each partner splits up – one goes uphill and one goes to the Coupons. Does first exercise on the board, and meets back in the middle for more 10 BB. Then the partners switch and going to the opposite location to do that first exercise and return to the middle for more BB. Keep this rhythm and move down the board until complete.

I am so appreciative of F3 and for all it has given me. The opportunity to be surrounded by HIM, to get healthy in mind, body, and spirit, and for this opportunity THIS MORNING to come full circle and workout in the Gloom with my Dad. It is a circle because 1 year ago, my Dad was the one who sent me an article in the Oldham County newspaper about a group of men who workout in the morning before everyone wakes up no matter the weather. God must have been at work at that time because there was a lot of moving parts. Our brother Yankovic wrote the article, that Bulletin shared it on Facebook, where my Dad reads it and shares it to me. I read that article, met the Pax at the Patriot, and never looked back. Like I said earlier, I am appreciative and give thanks every day for this group and feel lucky to be a part of it.
I will be sure to keep SYITG fellas!
