Cinderblock Smackdown at #TheMission

14 pax gathered ’round the shovel flag planted at historic Finlay Park on a pleasant Saturday morning in downtown Columbia. What a beautiful day to sit on a park bench, read a book and just kick back and relax! But that’s not what the men of F3 are interested in when attending a workout. It’s called a downpainment for a reason and it has become obvious that our brothers from OGM walk down Arsenal Hill every Saturday morning for a challenge and not a walk in the park. They want the hard thing. To #GetBetter. And this was fully demonstrated by Papa Smurf as he assumed the postion of QIC and dropped the hammer on the pax in a cinderblock laden workout.

Great work by Papa Smurf! This guy continues to take the initiative to lead and not only in word, but also by example. T-claps to Mulligan (respect), Tom Cat, Change and Papa Smurf for running 3-miles on Friday AM as they prepare for the Mud Run.

If you are interested in joining the OGM guys on a training run, these runs take place on Wednesday and Friday mornings at 0700 and meet at the entrance door of the Oliver Gospel Mission.
