5:30 am    Swiper welcomed the Pax to F3 – Fitness, Fellowship and Faith – reminding them of the mission to Plant, Serve and Grow small workout groups for the invigoration of male community leadership.

Then 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.

Credo: Leave no man behind, but leave no man where you found him.

Swiper reminded the PAX that I am not a professional.  Modify as necessary.  Workouts are all a suggestion.  From this point forward there is a real risk of injury. Swiper explained the Route and said we would stop at Cederdale each time we crossed it and would pick up the six and do some workouts.

5:33 am      Beatdown 

We started running.  I said let’s head East on the Papio Trail and we would head south on 72nd Street.  I started running with Schrute and Sponge Bob.  We stopped 3 times as we crossed Cederdale and each time we did

  • 33 Merkins (34 in the middle set)
  • 33 LBCs (34 in the middle set, and Farva did them IC)

        We it was all said and done, Schrute and I up front got 4.25 miles and others got different distances.  We all did 100 Merkins and 100 LBCs.

6:12        6MOM

COT        The Perfect Father

        For my COT I read from the book the “Perfect Father.”  The book talks about the roles that Fathers play in their lives.

Fathers: Remember the roles you play:

1.  Provider – Provide for the needs of your family 

2.  Pastor – You are the spiritual head of your household and the primary driver of fostering God’s love in your household

3.  Husband – You primary role to model the behavior of how to love your wife for your children….and when Mamma’s happy, everyone is happy!

4. Counselor – Listen, guide, be available, provider guidance, advice and direction

The premise is that Dads aren’t perfect…but they aspire to be!

Swiper led the group out in prayer.

AYE! Swiper
