PAX: Baby Shark, Schrute, Chernobyl, Simmons, Knobs
QIC: High Life
At 5:30 AM High Life welcomed the Pax to F3 and the Sandlot reminding them of the mission to Plant, Serve and Grow small workout groups for the invigoration of male community leadership. Asked if there are any FNGs today (there was none).
High Life then covered the 5 core principles of F3. 1) Open to ALL men. 2. Always Free. 3) Always held outdoors, 4) Lead in a rotating fashion and 5) Ends with a Circle of Trust (COT). Stated the “I am not a professional! Modify as needed” disclaimer
– To avoid getting hit by a car in the dense fog, I modified the route to stay along the path down Lincoln Road and hook a right once we got to 96th. Once we reached 96th, Knobs and Schrute turned around for about a 3 mile run. The remainder of the PAX ran up to Papio Trail and turned around there. Total run was about 4 miles.
· Prayers for Knobs mother as she is about to have knee surgery
· Prayers for Baby Sharks friend who is nearing end of life.
· Bring cans for can food and attend 4 year F3 Omaha anniversary.
For my COT I focused on the word regret. When my father in law passed away a few weeks ago, I had regret on not answering the phone a few days before he passed. We spoke a lot on the phone, but I was in the middle of some work and didn’t get a chance to call him back. This regret has been weighing on my mind since.
When my kids were younger, I used to say something to them every night before going to sleep. They always wanted me to do this and sometimes I would not be in the mood. Nowadays, they hardly want to say good night back, and it makes me miss those old days. A lot of regret not loving every minute of it.
Regret can cause you to beat yourself up mentally and prevent you from moving on. I want to focus on more of a regret free life from here on and enjoy every minute of life without thinking twice about it.
Today, these 5 guys had no regrets getting up early and tackling these five miles with ease. I asked each on to take that no regret feeling and carry it over into their work day, their family, and for themselves.
In the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take.
