PAX:  Samples (respect), Black Lung, Hard Hat, Vanilla Ice, Tenderfoot, Q-Tip, Splinter
Q: Splinter
5:15 a.m. YHC pulled into all but empty parking lot to do a quick run around and check things
out after a surprise snow the previous evening. YHC randomly placed a few surprises around the
football field and realized I forgot to leave my glasses in the vehicle. Quick sprint to deposit
glasses 5:29 a.m.
5:30 a.m. 6 PAX plus YHC decided to make the battlefield their home this beautifully white
crisp morning. YHC explained the mission of F3 along with the 5 core principles (nailed it) to
start things off and then displayed the cowbell brought along for the beatdown. Why the
cowbell? Let me tell you why, more cowbell is why. If the cowbell was rung by YHC, PAX
owed 10 burpees, if the cowbell was rung by PAX only 5 burpees were owed. Long story short
we were dealing with the burpee bell.
YHC did mention that I am not a professional and there was risk of injury so modify as needed.

Circle of Trust:
We are all told to go get what we want in life. We learn at a young age to not ask for help
because it is seen as weak. I structured the workout around both the ability to go get something
today and having to admit that we need help. One of the big things that we overlook when we
are unwilling to ask for help is the reality that we are denying others the ability to be a blessing
to us in the same way we enjoy the ability to bless others when they are in need. Today’s
challenge was to ask for help in an area that you struggle so someone could be a blessing in the
same way that the HIM of F3 so often are to others in their communities.
YHC called for ball of man and prayed us out.
