Birthdays everywhere


Q: Priorities

Pax: Rhymes, Mud Duck, Sawdust, Priorities

YHC doesn’t know what is so romantic about mid May but from all the birthdays going on, that’s when people are getting bizzay!  Croc’s birthday was 2 weeks ago, Priorities 2.0 had a birthday on Monday, M Croc is having a baby (quite possibly as I type this), M Rhymes is getting induced tonight and this morning F3 Monterey celebrated Sawdust’s 33rd birthday the best way we know how…

The Thang:

The traditional F3 Monterey Birthday Run – (this is the second such event so it’s now a tradition…)

– 1 pax takes off with the jugs.  All other pax do 3 burpees.  When the jugs are caught, new pax takes over.  When you are caught with the jugs, you do 3 burpees and chase down the jugs again.  Repeato.

Mud Duck didn’t quite understand the point as when we all were coming back to pick him up, he turned around and got a head start back to the flags.  Good thought but we still had places to go.

Next, the S.A.W.D.U.S.T. commenced at the wharf courtyard.

Words of wisdom from last weeks F3 Round Table:

An old man going a lone highway,
Came, at the evening cold and gray,
To a chasm vast and deep and wide.
Through which was flowing a sullen tide
The old man crossed in the twilight dim,
The sullen stream had no fear for him;
But he turned when safe on the other side
And built a bridge to span the tide.
“Old man,” said a fellow pilgrim near,
“You are wasting your strength with building here;
Your journey will end with the ending day,
You never again will pass this way;
You’ve crossed the chasm, deep and wide,
Why build this bridge at evening tide?”
The builder lifted his old gray head;
“Good friend, in the path I have come,” he said,
“There followed after me to-day
A youth whose feet must pass this way.
This chasm that has been as naught to me
To that fair-haired youth may a pitfall be;
He, too, must cross in the twilight dim;
Good friend, I am building this bridge for him!”
YHC rambled on for a bit but said nothing better than the poem above.  Prayers for those coming after us, especially Croc 2.0 and Rhymes 2.0 coming soon.
  • Saturday’s AO is at the Super Park in Fort Ord.  Tell your friends.
  • The Saturday AO on March 10th will be Hill Yeah in San Mateo.  OBT has the Q. #F3Royalty
  • The 2018 Official Race Jersey logo is released!  Pre order yours here. Let us know if you’d like to be part of the group order to save on shipping.
  • Sign up for a Q here. 2 Qs a month from our senior pax would cover it.



So I wrote this post yesterday but never published it.  It was a crazy night.  I was writing quite literally as Baby Hux (Croc 2.0) was being born.  Mom and baby are doing great!  Thanks for all the TAPS, especially to Sharkbait for praying with me at happy hour in the middle of a bar when we got word they were going in for a C Section.  God is good!!

In other baby news, M Rhymes has been admitted to the hospital but no progress yet.  Continue the TAPS for the next new addition to F3 Monterey!

Priorities out
