0515 – QIC kicked off the morning with the description of F3 – Fitness, Fellowship, and Faith; Five Core Principles – Free, Open to ALL Men, Always Outside, Lead in a rotating fashion, and Ends in a Circle of Trust. Credo – Leave no man behind, but leave no man where you found him. Mission of F3 is to Plant, Grow, and Serve small workouts groups for the reinvigoration of male community leadership. There were no FNG’s present, nonetheless, QIC noted he was not a fitness professional so the PAX should modify the workout as needed.

Nugent Flag pass from Blue Chip to Grease Fire. Blue Chip talked about how Grease Fire helped him get through the run this morning and has been a great influence for him in the Clydesdales.
Continuing on the topic of “Get Right”, QIC talked about an athlete that inspired him during his rugby playing days. Jason Robinson is a former rugby player for England who experienced immediate success as a young professional rugby player which saw him get caught up in drugs and alcohol. He soon began to see his relationships with his teammates and family get strained to the point of being given an ultimatum; get clean or lose your rugby contract. Long story short, he got clean and relied on the support of his teammates and family to help him realize what is most important in life. He eventually became a Christian and won the Rugby World Cup with England in 2003. QIC concluded that this was a perfect example to him of a good “get-right” story.
QIC closed out the morning in prayer.
