Thanks to the 12 PAX who posted for the first ever F3Waxhaw 2nd F Monthly Lunch. Hence forth to be held on the 3rd Friday of every month.
Thrilled to see this bunch outside the gloom. Have to admit, did not recognize a few without sweat dripping down their face and that look of exhaustion we so often have during and after workouts. Also have to admit some can clean up pretty well but others should consult their stylist before leaving the house, YHC included.
No earth-shattering or meaningful topics were discussed during lunch which, I believe, was the whole point. Lots of banter and stuff-talking and not much else. Like hanging with friends you’ve known for years but really just for only a few months or years in some cases.
I guess the point I’m trying to make is that’s YHC considers all my F3 Brothers as best of friends. The bond we share with our push to successfully traverse a workout together and encourage one-another to go harder than we thought ourselves capable. And not just with the workouts themselves but to get out of our comfort zone and do things in our daily lives we didn’t think possible before. That’s what friends do. That’s what F3 is to me. Iron Sharpens Iron. But more importantly, we support our brothers with whatever they need. Today we didn’t discuss any earth-shattering topics as I stated before but we are laying foundations for each other to open up and be comfortable sharing our darkest thoughts as well as our joys. Something our brother Toby from Cape Fear desperately needed. Unfortunately it was too late for him and his family is left to pick up the pieces of a life cut short in a moment of desperation. Let’s remember to remember. Let’s support one-another. Let’s be present. So often men try to do life on their own and don’t ask for help out of fear of projecting weakness or stupidity. Let’s admit our fears let’s ask for help when we need it when we can’t find the answer on our own before it’s too late. Too many people in our lives depend on us.
So… I’ll end as I began on a bit lighter side. If you weren’t fortunate enough to be able to attend the lunch today then let me just say you missed a free meal courtesy of Chain Saw (who now will be lovingly referred to as Sugar Daddy by YHC) and a heaping helping of fantastic, Fuzzy’s Tacos and apps.
Special thanks to Kid Rock for calling some favors from F3 Bouncer (GM of Fuzzy’s Taco Shop) who hooked us up with some free apps and coupons for free stuff the next time we’re out there. Please help them get the word out as an up and coming franchise. Their tacos were great and I would recommend you stop in with the family. Quick serve sit-down meal. Kids will love it too.
No one took us out and no DiCCS delivered but a good time was had by all!
