Nice shared Q by all. Great to see Cable Guy back in the mix and join us for some EC rucking as well as we prep for Go Ruck in Sept. Newton had to bail early for work…but sounds like everyone finished strong w the Bear Crawl and Crunchy Frog-fest in the luxurious waterlogged field. Sweet.

COT/BOM
The F3 NATX PAX spent the last ~10 minutes sitting in a circle and discussing men’s mental health, depression and suicide. YHC shared my personal battle with depression and the role F3 has played in my life. YHC really appreciated the openness and willingness the PAX had to be real with each other and have an honest discussion.
