There were a total of 19 men that attempted the Triple Decker and 1 man who was a lone ranger which equaled 20. The excitement of YHC’s 2 year anniversary beatdown went like this..
Run to the Triple Decker ~1.35 miles
Start at the bottom of stairway 1, complete 30 LBC, 20 Merkins, 10 Air Press at bottom of stairwell 1, run the stairs to the top, complete 30 LBC, 20 Squats, 10 Mountain Climbers at the top, run across the top deck to stairwell 2, complete your exercises, run down the stairwell, complete your exercises, run across the bottom deck to the next stairwell…rise and repeat until 0600.
Exercises to Complete:
At the bottom of each stairwell you will complete 30 LBC, 20 Merkins, 10 Air Press

1. I wasn’t sure how that was going to turn out with all the stop and go but what I can say is that 2 years ago there is no way I would have been close to completing 13 stairwells. Maybe 5 would have been the limit with the added miles.
2. It looked like everyone shot out of the cannon at the start. I believe the six on the run there was at a sub 8 minute which is great to hear. Those rolling hills were tough but much needed for sure!
3. I am still amazed at our brother SS Minnow, he is a machine in his 50+ years on this earth. I think he has some special sauce we need to try out.
2 Years of F3: All I can say is that I am glad I took my M’s advise to start this little thing called F3. It has been an amazing road not only in fitness but the other two F’s as well. Prior to F3, I was truly a sad clown going to the gym by myself and pretty much just standing around like the fern in the corner. The only friends I had were those at work but still I was missing those male bonds that I had back in college. I didn’t know how much my life sucked until I joined my Highlands brothers in August of 2012. Fast forwarded to now and I am happily married with two young boys and live in an awesome neighborhood. I have some really strong friendships with men that will hold me accountable not only for posting in the gloom but for other aspects of life such as what is means to be a godly father and husband. I could go on about each of you but I need to get back to work so I will talk you personally. Life is good brothers and I have all of you to thank for that. #T-Claps to all my Highlands, Tradition & Harrisburg brothers!
