Back to School Blast

61 F3 dads and their 2.0s stormed Harrisburg Park for the MECA’s final F3 dads of the summer. Meteorologist predicted rain and thunderstorms but that didn’t hold back the PAX, nor their 2.0s.

Mosey from parking lot to lower lot w/2.0s (some already “too tired” to run so some dads got to fireman carry down to the lower lot). ¬†Tabasco warned the PAX and 2.0s what they were getting into and the theme of “Back to School Blast.”

Kid suggestions



  • An amazing turn out this morning for F3 dads! Great seeing all the guys from Harrisburg, Highlands, Tradition, and Concord. I think the kids found at least one exercise they enjoyed doing or seeing their dads do.
  • My kids are already asking when the next F3 dads will be! ¬†Thanks for coming out everyone!
