Q: The Plague

Welcomed 24 PAX to a beautiful morning at The Colosseum. The Plague cited the core principles and mission of F3, “Plant and grow small workout groups for the invigoration of male community leadership”. The Plague also mentioned that he has never been, currently is not and will never be a professional so modifications will be necessary. PAX were disappointed when The Plague mentioned they would not be using the beautiful football field today, lots of mumble chatter indicating that was the main reason many of the PAX came to Colosseum today.

Warm-A-Rama

PAX moseyed around the parking lot and to the tennis court for warm-a-rama. During the mosey, The Plague surveyed the PAX to identify the best Pandora station for a workout. The unanimous vote (aka Toadstool’s idea) was to go with Backyard BBG. As warm-a-rama began, the Fugees played in the background – Safe Ride was amused.

Circle of Trust:

  • The Plague shared a paraphrased version of the David and Goliath story
    • David went into battle without a weapon but used stones to knock down Goliath
    • After Goliath was knocked down, David went and cut off his head and took his sword
    • On the other side of your giant is a sword
    • Sometimes your stones may be someone else’s sword
    • Be vulnerable and allow others to use your experiences and victories to overcome challenges in their own lives
    • The Plague thanked the PAX for sharing their experiences that have helped him overcome challenges in life
