I Don’t Give a F, I Actually Give Three

Hello fall! What are these things on my arms?… Oh, that’s right, sleeves. I forgot what they were like as this has been quite the extended year of staying at home and unforgiving heat and humidity. Not going to lie but I recycled a portion of a previous Weinke today mainly because I knew I could Q it better than last time and we needed to keep moving to stay warm. Yes, 50 degrees is cold for me… Anyway it didn’t take long for a nice crew of 10ish to appear out of the gloom and it was time. DiCCS were executed perfectly and we had a ton of safety gear present so we looked like a string of Christmas lights when we ran in a single line. You’re “encouragement” is working Mad Dog!

So there was a lot of stopping and starting today during our adventure but got in a variety of exercises, an ars kicking sprint and finally a longer gallop to finish things off. We had a fast group, faster than usual I think, because everyone really stayed together the whole time and pushed each other. There were several changes to the leader/s of the pack as we went along which is awesome. I remember when some of these “fast” guys started encouraging me to post at the longer distance / hour long workouts and now I get to be a co-site Q at one of them. Ignition. And how cute is it that the dude that EH’d me into joining F3 is the other site Q. Thanks Hollywood xoxoxo – I mentioned a couple things up top regarding F’s and seasons so I guess I should tie all that in somehow. Here goes; With about a minute left I opened up to the group that we are going through a change of seasons and by now I think most know that I have been as well. It has been an incredibly mixed ride of ups and downs, emotions, confusion and stress. But with all of that there has also been so many incredible and amazing other things that have been revealed on this journey of mine. One of the biggest and most important is I’ve been able to invest in the other two F’s of F3; the Fellowship and Faith components. I don’t think I can put into words the impact that tying all three together has made in my life in such a very short period of time. The bond and community that I have with many PAX today rivals those of immediate family and close friends I’ve had for 20 years… They’ve got my back. They pray for me – like for real pray, not just send the 🙏 emoji or post it in GM. They have offered me a room to stay if I need it. Coffee and an ear to listen. Encouragement. Accountability. And honestly just offering their time in a world where there never seems like there is enough to even get the most basic tasks accomplished that come with the defaults of life. I’m more engaged and connected with God than I have been in years. When you’re put into an environment where you know you just can’t do it alone you start to look for support ( hello 2nd and 3rd F’s ) and support is what I have found. I am more clear headed and in tune with the environment and world around me than maybe I have ever been before. And guess what, when that happens you start seeing even more amazing and beautiful things around you. Some, that have been there the whole time. I could go on but I’ll save some for my next BB. Here’s the bottom line; we have a FREE opportunity to take advantage of right now to help us grow in any area of our life. You just have to get uncomfortable enough to take the next step and act on the thought or emotion that you’ve been carrying around for however long. It’s there for a reason and so is F3. Grateful for each and every one of you. ✌
