I thought I took the easy way out doing my VQ at the Pineapple Express, however I got called out and the trolls were in full force on slack. My plan was not to suck.

Showtime has a VQ coming up
Naked Man Moleskin: I had been thinking about doing a Q on this date for a while and didn’t realize I never formally signed up for it(1st rookie mistake). Fortunately it took zero convincing to Dizzy to take since it’s only been a week since the Growruck where he killed it.
In the middle of the mosey of the warm up Pie Bar says you know have to keep this up for an hour, my adrenaline only got me through about 30 minutes(2nd rookie mistake picking a Saturday for a VQ to fill an hour up with pain)
Since I’ve been doing this longer than I should have before my VQ. I had a good understanding of what my goals were for this BD.
1) mix it up and hit all the muscles.
2) keep the Pax together
3) make sure all levels of pax get a good workout
4) some opportunity for mumble chatter
Lucky Charms got me to come out so it was fitting that he was the 6th man. He spoke about his experience to date and has really developed into a complete F3 Pax by exploring all the Fs
There’s a reason why I’ve avoided Qing for this long, lots of respect that Q frequently or take last minute Qs. Thanks to everyone that came out and have supported me throughout my F3 journey. Hard Drive for continuously coming out and encouraging me. I keep trying to reflect how special this is to this with my Dad.
