I arrived early to put the cones down for 4 man grinder and see if there were any ruts or holes in the rout for the running stage up the hill as I was walking back to the shovel flags the pre runners and ruchers were finishing up.
I welcomed the Pax to F3 – and explained it is Fitness, Fellowship and Faith – reminding them of the mission to Plant, Serve and Grow small workout groups for the invigoration of male community leadership.
I 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).
We had no FNGs.
I covered the Credo: Leave no man behind, but leave no man where you found him.
I stated that I was not a professional and to modify as necessary to avoid injury.

For my COT today I would like to remember those who lost their lives on 9/11 and for all of the First Responders that lost their lives trying to save others that day. A story from 9/11 that has stuck with me over the years is the man with the Red Bandana ( Welles Crowther) After the south tower was hit he went up to the 78th floor covering his nose and mouth with a red bandana and guided trapped people out of the smoke and down the tower to safety. He made 3 trips up the tower and saved as many people as he could until the building collapsed. His mother later read an article of a man with a red bandana in the New York times and knew that was her son who had carried a red handkerchief since he was a boy and verified it was him through all the people he saved that day.
