Kirkland goes BANG and F3 hits the West Coast!

10 men posted on a cool (cold?) rainy Saturday morning in Kirkland, Washington and suddenly this little workout group called F3 Nation spanned coast to coast. In the 40 degree steady rain this party of 10 almost seemed anti-climatic after 5 years of F3 that has included 600+ pax Mud Runs, nearly 200 pax Blue Ridge Relays, 400 pax 5 year anniversary workouts and parties…BUT this launch was anything but anti-climatic in the hearts and minds of those 10 men who posted in Kirkland on Saturday. It may just be “only a workout” but YHC saw that familiar glimmer in the eyes of those FNGs that says a switch has been flipped and lives have been changed…again…and in that hour, over 2,800 miles from Charlotte, NC, that distance shrunk to nothing.

Conditions: 41 and raining from the drop but the rain stopped early on.

Moleskin:
– To say it was a monumental morning would be an understatement. Truly and honor and a privilege for YHC to lead these men in this first ever official F3 workout on the west coast. F3 Nation is now coast to coast and will do big things in Kirkland. TYHC can not wait to watch what these men do out there.
– 100% attendance at #coffeeteria at Zoka. #strong
NEXT WORKOUT is THIS WEDNESDAY 5:30am-6:15am with AP on the Q.
BIG SATURDAY workout this Saturday with Laettner on the Q all the way from Charlotte. Remember your promise to YCH and post with a FNG in tow. If you’ll be out of town…SEND YOUR FNG ANYWAY!!!
FROM AP: I’ve set up a couple websites for you to help tell people where to go… F3kirkland.com is our schedule and general info page, including how to follow us on social and to buy shirts if you want (http://f3.mudgear.com/products/f3-kirkland-pre-order is the main link there). www.F3kirkland.news is where to find our past workouts, one of which will be Saturday’s workout.

    1. Yup, Bartman. Yup. It was super cool for him to be there, and he’s coming back once he finishes biking cross-country. GORUCK guys are here for their production ops, and I foresee more connections!
