What the ruck is a ruck? A hike with a weighted backpack (approx 30 lbs) while stopping along the brisk walk to do some invigorating exercise. Excellent 1st F (fitness) and 2nd F (fellowship). If an FNG (Friendly New Guy) is a bit timid to post for a workout the ruck is a great intro to the pax.
One thought on “The Necropolis – Ruck (Fort Meigs)”
Yukon Cornelius Ruck
Time: 5:30am to 6:30am
Location: The Necropolis…aka Fort Meigs Ohio’s 1812 Battlefield
PAX: 9 total – Ponzi, Geppetto, Better Offer, Casper, Raven, Callahan, Meatloaf, Popeyes, Ringo
No FNG’s, so right into Mission and Principles.
F3 – Fitness, Fellowship, Faith
Mission –Plant, grow and serve small workout groups for men for the invigoration of male community leadership.
The core principles of F3 are that it must:
Be free of charge
Be open to all men
Be held outdoors, rain or shine, heat or cold
Be led by men who participate in the workout in a rotating fashion, with no training or certification necessary. You versus you. Modify or stop an exercise if you need to. The most important thing is that nobody gets hurt.
End with a Circle of Trust
The “Thang”: Rucked to the “Welcome to Perrysburg” sign by the bridge to Maumee and back.
Topics of discussion: Favorite Christmas TV show, movie and song.
Total ruck distance: Approx 2.3 miles.
We ended in a Circle of Trust with Raven as the six. Loves the brotherhood of F3. We could workout anywhere but its the HIM of the group that keeps him coming back. It helps his mental health. Aye!
Moleskin/Spreadsheet from the Gloom:
-Popeyes and Ringo were a little late so they joined us halfway
-Slippery, snowy morning. Didn’t cover the distance we normally do
-Casper shared a fun fact from Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer TV show. The reason Yukon Cornelius licks his pickaxe throughout the show? There is an unedited version of the program that has not been shown for years in which his pickaxe lands into a pile of peppermint candy and he licks the candy off the pickaxe. Who knew!?!?!?
-Better Offer brought and actual pickaxe to the ruck!
