The PAX broke out into six groups.  Dirty Bird explained that the group would be doing the Ring of Metal (Fire) with a twist.  The push group would mosey around the stage and back.  Before they pushed the next group, the push group would get to pick the exercise for everyone to do at that moment.  The push group is not obligated to do the exercise it selects but is required to do the exercises when it enters the Ring of Metal.

“You don’t miss your water until your well runs dry.”  Dirty Bird relayed that he had been sick the last week and it really emphasized how lucky he is to have the ability to come out in the mornings to join his F3 brothers.  He missed being fully healthy to post.  He acknowledged that he does not handle being sick well and has a hard time slowing down and not doing something.  His wife really dislikes it when he is sick.  He expressed to the PAX that it is important to slow down, take care of yourself and have a minor break so that you do not miss out on things for an extended period of time.  F3 during the winter has been a big boost mentally for Dirty Bird, and he encouraged the PAX to continue to post in the winter regularly.  But be smart about it.  If something does not feel right or is off, take a short break and avoid injuries that will keep you out for a long time.  Make sure you warm up and stretch before you exert yourself in cold weather.  But also remember when it is cold outside, it is a great time to post.

Dirty Bird ended with a prayer of gratitude.
