You know the F3 mission. As the new year starts, we need to work on GROWing F3 (I confess I’ve been lax on EH’ing – we can still do this in winter!), which helps us PLANT more AOs. We need to SERVE: step up and Q (or Q more often), and serve your communities- note the plural. Your communities are your M, your 2.0s, your F3 brothers, Omaha (and the metro). But don’t neglect serving your your family to serve F3 and Omaha. All of this enhances our ability to LEAD – lead in your communities. 

SYITG,

Moleskine

  1. It’s important to scout your location. E.g., I was going to use a baseball field this AM, but they were harder than concrete, so audibled to grassy field. 
  2. Despite the slightly better terrain, No Surrenders were quickly changed to Copperheads as bumpy, frozen ground sucked for kneecaps. 
  3. Reaearxh has shown one indicator of overall fitness (esp. as you age) is your ability to get up from the floor without using one or both arms. I need to do more Turkish get-ups. 
  4. Outlaws are simple, but I forgot to write down the explanation. Thus, PAX were told to pick their own substitute.
