Defeat the ‘DEATH STAR’
The death star as defined on the F3 Nation website is 10 stations (cones) with 30 merkins (300 total)…which sounds great - but in reality - is unobtainable by most of the F3 Grand Rapids PAX. So, YHC made an executive decision and changed the 30 merkins at each station to 10 merkins & 20 BBS. And instead of 10 cones in the shape of a star, we would run a 5K with 10 stops along the way.

In total, the PAX ran over 3 miles - pushed 100 merkins - and did 200 big boy sit-ups.

Not bad for a Wednesday morning ITG.
