20 PAX arrived to hear the F3 core principles, mission statement, motto, and Credo, as well as exercise disclaimer.  2 new FNGs were present and welcomed.  Mosey was taken to the lit parking lot to the south of the high school for Warm-o-rama.

Warm-o-rama included 20 SSH IC, 3 burpees, 15 Big Ones IC, 3 burpees, 10 Sun Gods fwd/backward IC, 3 burpees, and 10 windmills IC, followed by final 3 burpees of the day.  We then moseyed to the east wall of the high school for a brief Pre-Thang

  • Wall Sit for 5 count x 20 with alternating left leg/right leg off ground while maintaining sit

PAX then numbered off into 4 groups and we then moseyed to the field for The Thang

The Thang:   Stations 1 and 2 were completed while 1 PAX at each station was to be running a flight down, then up on the stairs before switching out with another member of the group.  Another theme for each group was to give them 2 items to mumble chatter about on the way to their next station if topics were sparse (not the case)

Circle of Trust:

I chose to focus today’s COT on the importance of listening and connection.  I recently retweeted an article by Dr. John Delony on the Importance of Human Connection.  I am flawed in so many ways that I forget many of them.  One weak point of mine is the power of active listening.  I have heard many wise mentors tell me that we are born with 2 ears and one mouth for a reason.  We should be doing twice as much listening as we do talking.  Reading this article highlighted how much of our current communication is done without talking or real connection with others.  A 2020 survey stated that 6 out of 10 young adults ages 18-25 described themselves as “miserably lonely”.  Think about those who focus heavily on how many online followers/retweets/likes/etc they have but cannot think of a single friend who they can call to come help them move some furniture.  Connection and proximity are interesting concepts.  It is pointed out that connection requires proximity, but proximity does not guarantee connection.  It takes vulnerability, risk taking, is not comfortable, is not digital, is not one sided.  It involves sharing, requires us to look others in the eye, ask questions, listen, and then ask more questions.  Most importantly, it requires us to extend grace to others, forgive, and take an active part in groups that matter.  This article screamed F3 to me and meets every check box in this article.  I am paraphrasing most of this article as I cannot say it much better but will be sure to post to Twitter for others to see as well and hope this resonates with you.  I appreciate you all and thanks for always being there, for listening, and for being so supportive of your brothers, families, and our community.

Aye!
