“Perseverance is not a long race; it is many short races one after the other.” – Walter Elliott

Some men come into F3 already pretty physically fit. Some of us come in looking to get fit. Some people already know how to discipline themselves and they come in already in shape, but maybe they’re dealing with a lot of psychological turmoil. Some of us have to learn discipline and be shaped by others here. Some of us come in very internally motivated to get up and workout – meaning, there’s very little need for someone to coax you into getting up at 5:00 AM to go pre-run and then beatdown. Some of us have to be constantly coaxed and we’re externally motivated by the encouragement, the comraderie of F3.

I imagine we’re all walking individual lines. We’re all at different places on our lines for our physical, mental and spiritual health. And there will be (and are) times where we fall off that line. We then feel like we have failed ourselves and the community. I’m here today to tell you that you have not failed us. And we are here to help pick you back up, get you back on that line and get back into the race so you don’t fail yourself. Because it’s just you versus you. Your old self versus your new self. We are with you, not against you. And if you can keep going forward (keep accelerating) on that line – you are beating your old self. You will have times where you fall off the line again. Dust yourself off and saddle back up. 

We ride at dawn.
