Celebrating my name day and we did exercises to understand what F3 does. The POAS allows for the 6 to remain a part of the group without us having to go back for them. The partner assisted pull ups remind us that we need our brothers to pick us up from time to time. The partner weighted merkins give us strength so that we can drop that dead weight on our back. The partner assisted sit ups are there because your mother can’t always tell you to sit up straight … sometimes your brother needs to. And in the end, we did some leg strength exercises so that we are always ready to kick butt and take names.
Boys, YHC is on fire for F3 and that’s a big reason why we are in the Azalea Festival Parade. Meet at Snipes Elementary at 0715 this Saturday. It’s gonna be epic.
Beauty shared that he prayed he could participate despite knowing he had a job to do … the job called yesterday and delayed the move, so he’s in on the parade AO.
Prayers of thanks, for His Grace in nudging me from that tree and introducing me to F3. Prayers for continued growth of F3. Prayers for first responders and their family.
Skins: Thanks to SOL for the EC run. I’ve been slacking on my run days, but its obvious he’s cruising at a good pace these days – it was good to chase him along. T-Claps to Fire Marshall Bill for offering up a crisp Benjamin if he fart-sacked one more time. That new business trailer is lit – did y’all know FMB has started a pressure washing business? It was good to see Zoro after a long absence. Magnito – I can see your improvement, keep posting. Blue Steel, thanks for always being so positive.
Always an honor;
