MARY – My take on the “Ring of Fire Thing”

Instead of Merkins, PAX did 3 Burpees.
Instead of Hold Plank, PAX held their coupon over their head in an overhead press position
PAX could opt to put their coupon down if they wanted to modify with burpees.  Those are the only 2 choices, Overhead hold or Burpees.

Thank you to all the men that came out and then men that got me here today.  I am not the type of person that commits a lot of time or effort into something unless I truly believe in it.  I hope it shows, especially the last few months, that I am fully committed in time and energy to my F3 brothers.  That is not a testament to me but a testament of how incredible each PAX in F3 is.  You guys bring me out everyday and I cannot thank you enough for that. When I started F3 it was a very tumultuous time in the world and within F3.  It was not the best of what F3 had to offer and I often would say “if this is a made up group, why put up with this shit”  I am very glad nobody listened to me.  The experience after the lockdown and what F3 truly has to offer has been amazing.  As we continue to open up and return to “normal” I can only hope the strength and bond of this group grows within our current PAX and is shared with those men in our surrounding neighborhoods and beyond.  Thank you to each of you!
