– Great effort today by the pax in a tough workout. 7 FNGs definitely got an indoctrination.

– Pax #60 was a #BillyZane (see the “Lexicon” link at the bottom of the page for a definition) who joined during Robber’s COP but he dropped at some point, probably when he saw the pax take off down Main Street while carrying pavers. #thosedudescrazy

– 7 FNGs got worked. Overheard while running back up Main to the State House steps with pavers…FNG1 “Man, when do we get to the Faith part?” FNG2 “Huh? You ain’t prayin’ yet?”. #hadenough1stF

– T-Claps to WLTX’s Alyssa Lang for bringing out the camera for her upcoming story on F3. Sled, Sway and Chaser got some camera time in interviews and all of the pax were shot while #suffering. Look for an announcement of when the story will run.

– 8/3 Irmo workout launch at 7am at Seven Oaks Park. Try to attend if possible to show our support and get them off to a good start.

– 8/3 is also the Hot Summer Nights 5k in Shandon at 7:30PM #doubeldownopportunity. Great race and it would be great to have a big F3 gear presence. Sign up at the race or now at StrictlyRunning.com.

– Monday/Wednesday #Brickpile workout starts at Dreher on Monday 7/29 at 5:45.

– #Amble will meet at Owens Field Track on Monday morning 5:45. Come get faster and improve your 5k race pace.

  1. Good work today by Robber and Chaser. I’m so proud of the Columbia pax for their attitude, enthusiasm, and for “buying in” to what we’ve been throwing out there for the last 9 months. The day will come very soon when we look back in awe and say “Do you remember that day we ONLY had sixty at the State House?” Strong men lead to stronger families and stronger communities, and we are making a difference: one man at a time. T-Claps, brothers!

    Looking forward to running with my boys on Aug 10! Maybe the Today show will be broadcasting you guys by then. Don’t get too Hollywood!
