NOR/COT:

Prayer Requests – Nicole, Eric and unspoken

Moleskin:

During COT, Dabo said it best: when you’ve been on the shelf for a while, you don’t realize how much you appreciate and need F3 until you’re back in the gloom. The early mornings, the cold, the soreness: it’s all worth it once you’re surrounded by brothers that are lifting you up.

T-Claps to Peaches and Big Spur for constructing the idea of a mobile AO. Kudos to Dabo for being receptive to it and understanding the intent. Thanks to TYC PAX for making the trip over. We may have multiple sites, but we’re one group.

Those of you that live in gated communities may think you’re safe from this type of guerilla tactic; you’re not.

YHC was a little hesitant and quiet early on as I know Dabo has guns inside. Fortunately, a bunch of middle aged men jumping around in spandex didn’t come across as threatening.

This morning was evidence that we can have a rigorous and effective workout while never leaving the flag. There are more than 700 different exercises in the exicon; let’s put them to use.

If we had to put together a basketball team, I’d be concerned for this group. Not much ground clearance on those deconstructed burpee jumps.

I love this group. I love the people in this group. And I love the physical, social and spiritual benefits that this group provides me. While it may be cliche or perhaps a bit sappy, in my estimation, F3 is about so much more than a workout and it’s my sincere hope that others get as much from it as I do. If for whatever reason, you feel that something is missing, grab and brother and confide in him. We’re not made to go at it alone.

It’s always a pleasure to lead.

Sawed Off out.
