Indian run to the Florence Country Club

5 tees, Merkins at each tee, 5,10,15,10, 5
2nd Tee Box
5 tees, Big Boys at each tee, 5,10,15,10, 5
Mosey to the 3rd tee box, at this point we stopped at the Brian Kelley, F3 name “Duke” memorial tree.
Brian Kelley was an F3 Florence brother who passed away at a young age due to an unexpected cardiac event, this occurred in April 2017. Duke is the name of our highest award given out annually at the Christmas party each year. CDC told us that this award is given to the person that best exemplifies all 3 F’s. This year the award winner was Pinto. Spiritfingers reminded us of a funny anecdote involving Duke. He told of a workout at Scrooge that involved getting up on metal container boxes, each team helped to get each other up, Banjo was the Q, he reports that Duke pulled him so hard he thought his arms are going to separate, and then he got all scraped up getting pulled up the side of the metal container, I’m laughing as I’m typing this. Duke is gone, but never forgotten.
3th Tee Box
6 tees, Burpees at each tee, 3,6,9,12,9,6, we had to modify at the end when Bridesmaid said “I can’t breathe”. In his defense I couldn’t either (just a little humid).
6th Tee Box
5 tees, Windmills (or Windshield Wipers as some prefer to call them) at each tee, 5,10,15,10, 5
Indian run back to Rumble AO
Great job everyone. Thank you for letting me lead you this morning. Every year the humidity is like Christmas, I can’t wait for it to come, it feels so magical. Fortunately, we have it for 3 more months. Today we were reminded that our life here on earth is only transient, we must be ever mindful and vigilant of the day that we are called home. We should all continue to strive to follow Duke’s example and exhibit the 3 F’s as best we can. I am humbled by both Duke, and all the Duke award winners.
