With Christmas music pumping through his speaker YHC lead the PAX through the NATX 12 Days of Christmas.

  • The GrowRuck event has a tentative end of September date and the locations are between Houston and San Antonio. GP will continue to feed info as he gathers it.
  • YHC will be posting finalized details on the NATX New Years Ruck sometime in the next few days.
  • We will be pushing our workout start time from 0530 to 0500 starting in 2020 for the Monday-Wednesday-Friday Posts. We will trial this for the month of January and see how it affects numbers and go from there on whether to keep it or go back to 0530.
  • There will be NO workout next Wednesday for Christmas Day! Stay home and enjoy the family time
  • Starting in January we will start to implement monthly challenges for the PAX to complete on their own time outside of the normal workout posts. Stay tuned for more info each month.

After announcements were completed, Elmer Fudd graciously brought to light the fact that yesterday was Photo Op’s 31st birthday. So in typical F3 fashion the PAX, lead by Photo Op, performed 31 Birthday Merkins.


  • Thoughts and Prayers go out to anyone/everyone that is going through any kind of loss right now
  • This brings back the idea that we are more than just a workout group, we have become brothers and with that each member is a pillar for every other member to lean on in time of need.

Merry Christmas!!
