60 degrees and clear skies

There are lots of things PAX think about when deciding to post:

  • Great weather > Cold and rainy
  • Late start time > No sleep
  • Solid Q > Hard/Weak Q
  • FNG coming > Nobody will be looking for me
  • Short drive > Inconvenient location
  • Big crowd > Boring small group
  • Feeling good > Bowel issues

There is no doubt that there are some legitimate reasons not to post.  This soap box backblast is not a guilt trip but rather a challenge:  PUT YOURSELF OUT THERE, BE UNCOMFORTABLE, AND COMMIT THE NIGHT BEFORE

A couple questions to ponder:

  • Have you ever reminisced with another F3 brother and said, “Do you remember that time when I fartsacked?  I had the greatest time.”?!?!?
    • ANSWER:  Never happened
  • When is the last time that you truly regretted attending an F3 workout?
    • ANSWER:  Likely Never happened
  • Have you ever been on Q and nobody showed up?
    • ANSWER:  Hopefully Never happened
  • Has another F3 brother told you that he was going through a difficult time and your presence or an encouraging word to him at a workout caused his day/attitude to change?
    • ANSWER:  Probably Never happened BUT it is likely true and he is just not comfortable sharing that nugget just yet

Again, this is not a guilt trip but hopefully a reminder of what we have the opportunity to do every morning.  We have the opportunity to:

  • Get a free workout
  • Improve our physical health
  • Improve our mental state
  • Laugh out loud before most people are awake
  • Encourage a fellow brother
  • Be encouraged by a fellow brother
  • Bring a smile to somebody’s face/soul

DO NOT TAKE THESE THINGS FOR GRANTED!  THESE ARE GIFTS GIVEN TO EACH OF US . . . ARE YOU GOING TO KEEP THEM TO YOURSELF OR START GIVING THEM AWAY TO OTHERS?!?!?  You know the answer.  Now let’s go do it!  #COMMIT

Soap Box finished . . . Now onto the workout:
