Side not. On this day the groups job of picking up the six was amazing. Everyone finished together at the flags. That’s what it is all about.

Name or Rama

This needs it own section today because of how amazing the thighs looked on the men today. Even if you shorts were normal length they were hiked up so nicely for this sweet vid.

Announcements and Prayers

Prayers to the Kiepest family in Papio. A father and son tragically lost their lives on their way to the husker game. He was a HIM and will be missed.

CoT

Armbar goes first

We talk a lot about the 5 core principles and Today I want to talk about the first one. It’s free. I asked you today to free you thighs (For fun) and to show how F3 being free is very important. It supports our open to all men principle number 2. No barrier that income could cause happens at f3. When you pull into the parking lot in a Audi super car (No names mentioned…DaVinci) or a 2009 Subaru that needs a new muffler the second you get out of the car you are HIM who want to get better. Nothing else matters at that moment. Lastly we do pay. In blood sweat and tears and with our time and energy. But that is a great price to pay to accelerate.

Then Othello steps up. I am paraphrasing what he said and will be no where near as magical or beautiful as Othello words. And especially when spoken allowed.

Their are many ways of being free. One is to release control, the freedom and letting things happen however they will. I am a planner and a person who has a process that likes to control as much as I can. When asked to Q paradise by my friend and HIM slow pitch at first I wanted to say now. I do not want to run 3 miles let alone lead a group of men who like 3 miles for fun. With that being said I needed to release control of my process for this and lead. So then when Armbar said lets do the traditional route again I didn’t want to do that but released control and went with it. And here I stand leading these men and made it through the workout (SO well done buddy) and releasing that control gave me the freedom to lead.

-Aye

Armbar and Othello.
