10 PAX posted this morning at HardNocs for a look back at the IPC 2019.   During the IPC Challenge each week I would read the Twitter feeds and fear would set in as I had to wait until Saturday to do the workout.  When I showed and completed the challenges, they ended up being fun.   Our minds will always try to limit us with fear but action dispels fear.   “We suffer more in imagination than in reality” Seneca

BOM – During IPC, I was impressed with men like Doink and Gravy that did the challenge each week multiple times to get better and also to keep me company and give me a push.   That’s what attracts me to F3.  Working hard and lifting each other up! Leave no man behind!
