He reminded PAX that he is not a professional and that PAX may need to modify as necessary.
The PAX were led down the stadium stairs to the track where we ran counterclockwise around the track for an easy warm up lap. We ended on the Southeast side and began with warm-o-rama. PAX listened to the song “Jump” by house of pain. We held a squat for the entire song until they said “jump”. This was very challenging. The thighs were burning by the end. This was not an easy warm-o-rama

KOA had Chinese food earlier this week and his fortune was “If you read your fortune out loud, you will have good luck.”
KOA began by discussing all of the thoughts, hopes and dreams that we hold in our brains. How often do we actually speak them and let others know about those things? Many times never.
The point is that if we fail to let others know what our goals are, what our thoughts are, what our hopes and dreams are; we will rarely make them a reality because we won’t have anyone to keep us accountable. The beauty of F3 is that men are willing to freely speak up and open up to the men around them. By doing so, what they have to say become real. If forces them to be held accountable and it makes us all better.
KOA took us out in Prayer.
