At 5:00 Duracell, High Life, Black Tuesday, and Simmons Ran a 2 mile pre run. There were other pre run and rucksack groups out this morning. Wild animals were heard making odd noises.
At 5:30 Simmons welcomed PAX to F3 and thanked them for coming out for his VQ. He reminded them of the mission to Plant, Serve, and Grow small workout groups for the invigoration of male community leadership. He then covered the 5 core principals of F3. 1) Open to ALL men. 2) Always free. 3) Always held outdoors. 4) Lead in a rotating fashion. 5) Ends with a Circle of Trust (COT). He also stated, “I am not a professional! And to modify as needed!” Lastly he asked if we had any FNG’s (there was one, Skyler Yoder).

My COT today was about how my name was after Richard Simmons, who was known for his positivity. That is something I relate to well, in that, I always try to be the optimist for other people when I can. I wanted to encourage Pax to be that positive light for other in their lives. But I also mentioned how Richard Simmons was known for his outward positivity, and later in life we found out he was very negative inward. He suffered from depression and anxiety after year of negative self-talk. So I also wanted to encourage everyone to be positive not only to others but to themselves.
