The BackBlast:


With Memorial Day upon us, it was important for the PAX of F3 Fort Collins to take the time to remember and honor those who gave their life in the line of duty. It was in that spirit YHC (on the fly) devised a simple but effective CSAUP event (F3 FoCo’s first ever!) for Memorial Day. After a simple disclaimer was given (mostly warning the PAX not to drop the flag, lest 50 burpees be dished out), we took one minute of silence in remember of those who gave their lives, and then we were off…

The Thang:

Simple 5.25+ mile loop, with a stop every mile to do…

  • 25 Merkins
  • 25 Squats

Likewise, at each mile, we took a minute to honor some chosen heroes who gave their lives in the line of duty:

  • Michael Murphy
  • Matt Pucino
  • Travis Manion
  • Edwardo Loredo
  • Albert Gettings


Took a minute to give thanks for the opportunity we have to get better, and for the sacrifices of the men and women who gave their lives so we could even have these opportunities.
