Pair up, as we mosey have this conversion with your partner.

  1. What is one thing you wish you did better?
  2. What is preventing you from getting better?
  3. What is your greatest struggle?
  4. How can F3 help you with your struggle?

Mosey to football field – we rolled the die (thanks to @BadaBing)as we went and did a series of squats, merkins, SSH and burpees.

DORA – Teams of 2 pax working together to reach cumulative exercise goals of 100, 200, and 300 reps. Pax 1 executes as many reps as possible while Pax 2 sprints 100 yards down and back. Flapjack until team goal is reached. Exercises are a top-to-bottom of body progression,  100 merkins per team (chest), 200 LBCs per team (core), 300 squats per team (legs).

Rinse and Repeat – using these exercises – 100 plank jacks, 200 freddy mercuries, 300 Iron Mikes.

Mosey back to flag – continuing conversation with partner, stopping along the way to roll the die!

Name – o – Rama


I shared with the PAX 1 Corinthians 9:23-25 – I asked them, was Paul talking about winning the race, in other words crossing the finish line first or run in such a way as to win the prize. I believe the teaching here is as men we need to run the race to insure everyone crosses the finish line, starting with your M and 2.0’s. Then we make sure our F3 brethren are finishing the race. I believe we get our prize heavenward depending on how we ran the race here on earth. We are fellow partakers of the gospel…do we act like it?  Live in such a way as to win the prize!

Prayers for Gravy with a tooth extraction and my SIL Laurie Powers who had emergency surgery with complication with her pancreatic cancer.

Have a blessed weekend my brethren!!!
