Mosey’d back to Shovel flags for Announcements, Prayer Requests and CoT.

Prayer Requests: Khaki’s brother, Splinter’s M. 

CoT:  No Fancy motivational quotes to inspire today.  Already had a great group of men in the cold, early in the morning working out together.  No need to talk about motivation.  The men of F3 didn’t need it today.  Instead we talked about Picking up the six and it’s importance to me.  Slow Pitch picked me up as the six in my very first pre-run.  I wasn’t humbled, but grateful and also motivated.  Motivated to work harder so that I could one day pick up the six myself and sacrifice myself for someone else.  Picking up the six transcends into other parts of life than just F3.  Could be your M, 2.0’s, Friends, Extended Family or your work.  As Male leaders in this community it’s our job and should be our honor to pick up the six any chance we can.  We should be searching for those opportunities.  Thank you to Slow Pitch for picking me up and instilling in me a life lesson. Always will be grateful for that. 

Tater Tot led us in Prayer. 

Humbly, Griswold
