The 6 Year Cherokee Anniversary 1 Week Early Because Belk Cannot be There Jan 1

Cherokee….The workout named for a road in Eastover. The workout which started, after many other Metro workouts, but has the distinction of starting on the 1 year anniversary of the launch of F3Nation. The workout that moved seamlessly from Eastover Neighborhood Park to the Mint at Randolph after neighbors complained of exuberant and loud imperial walkers. Cherokee the workout that over time that has championed and cultivated the FNG,  FNGs who in turned have unselfishly given their time as Qs and SiteQs helping F3-Metro maintain its continual quest to invigorate male community leadership.

17 Pax arrived and rallied around the shovel flag. Many Pax we were there to help Belk celebrate this incredible workout’s 6year milestone which still has not happened since Jan 1st is not til Monday. Many pax arrived determined to support and help Raider vent his grievances aloud and perform feats of strength to celebrate Festivus, the holiday only a top notch Sitcom can create.

Big Shout Out to Van Winkle #ran4milesb4workout, SkoalBandit and Eminem(out of town but there in spirit) for bringing a ton of gear and helping setup stations for the pax

All I know is this….YHC had a kickass time this morning doing things a little bit different.  As usual The veteran pax pushed themselves and never ceased contributing to the peanut gallery. The laughing and one liner zingers never ceased and flowed over to coffeteria. Next time you have an FNG bring them out to Cherokee. Gotta love this F3 thang.

    Awesome Q, Ribeye. High quality pseudoanniversary. I remember fondly your FNG workout, at Cherokee, when you were named Yoda for reasons that I don’t remember, and then renamed Ribeye later for reasons that are non-specific but appropriate.

    Great to see so many Cherokee vets out. Warms the heart. And Ribeye nailed it — Cherokee is a leadership factory.
