12.19.19 – The Darkest Q

MOLESKIN: As Your Humble Correspondent prepared his first Q in a while, he reflected on the past month and got all sentimental thinking about last winter. He was filled with appreciation for all the guys who have stepped up and taken on the mantle to Q a workout, to lead our social media pushes, or come up with great EC ideas and be good brothers to one another. That appreciation inspired the Circuit below, an exercise in gratitude for all the combined hours spent agonizing over weinkes and backblasts. Many hands makes the work light.

I spent the better part of the past month on the back foot and really couldn’t have pulled my weight with F3 if it were required of me. You (dear PAX) may have noticed a lack of “filler noise” on Slack as I needed to prioritize work and push into other fronts in my life at the expense of my F3 presence. In a different year, that month-long downturn from one person may have spelled the death of F3 Wheaton. I am filled with hope and confidence having “returned” and seen that things have continued on just fine without me. As I immediately head into another two-week (three weekends!?) absence from workouts, I am comforted by the faithful regularity of the men of F3 Wheaton. This week marks the darkest Gloom that we will post in (though it might get colder). Hold the line, brothers. Let’s kick this winter in the teeth and come out on the other side ready to share the joy of our regular weekday/weekend shieldlock with a fresh batch of FNGs. Set those alarms. See you in January. SYITG.
