Ball of Man led by Twoadays


– Excellent first Q by Twoadays.  We’ve come to expect such out of all of our resident Combat War Veterans and we’re developing quite a collection (Stain, ConMan, Twoadays, Snuggles, Sheets, I apologize if I’m missing someone).  We appreciate your service gentlemen.

– Twoadays promised a harder workout next time. Tried not to “go overboard” for his virgin Q but I think he’s done with that.  #watchout #Beano?IsThatYou?

– Same ol’ same ol’ on Thursday (4th of July). 5:45AM at #SwampFox for Fountainhead’s virgin bootcamp Q.  Come burn some calories cause you know you’re going to take some in celebrating the 4th.

Speaking of calories…the F3 Summer Fuel Challenge is an F3 wide 6-week clean diet challenge.  This is NOT a fat-guy-get-skinny diet (though I’m sure that will happen for alot of guys) it is a clean diet challenge for everyone.  Whether you have 35% body fat or 5% body fat we can all eat cleaner and see the results.  I can tell the difference every morning depending on if I ate well the night before (light dinner, lots of water) or ate badly (pizza and beer).  I’m in for the challenge as is Sway and many others.  We’ll talk this up.  It starts Monday 7/8.  See this for the deets and list of those committed in the comments section: http://f3nation.com/2013/07/01/2013-summer-fuel-challenge/#comment-14383

– Born in the USA 4 mile road race this Thursday after #SwampFox.  The race starts at 7:43 at the corner of Forest Drive and Trenholm.  You can be headed to your 4th plans by 8:30am. Do #SwampFox, do the race, DO BOTH…but DO SOMETHING.

– Standing F3 lunch at Beltline Lizard’s Thicket at noon on Wednesdays. #April

DEADLINE of 7/15 to order the new batch of F3 Columbia shirts. Fitted or Loose. Order here: http://f3.mudgear.com/SC–Columbia_c_30.html
