10 burp OYO
Mosey to park:
by way of the riverside. 25 merks IC on the way
100 dips on stage wall
while partner ran to the Peace Pad and back
by way of Frazier. 25 merks OYO on the way
1.5 miles total
Swamp box jumps and 15 flutter kicks
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
Life is full of choices, and we choose the paths that we will follow. For myself, I have always chosen the path “less traveled” because I like the challenge. This passage, I think, accurately describes the men of F3. This is not an easy decision that we make to get out before the crack of dawn, but it speaks volumes about who we are and which path we choose to become better people and better leaders. “And that has made all the difference.”
