Black Tuesday welcomed the Pax to F3 – reminding them of the F3 Mission: Plant, Grow and Serve small workout groups of men for the invigoration of male community leadership.
Black Tuesday then recited the 5 core principles of F3. 1) Free of charge 2) Open to all men. 3) Held outdoors, 4) Peer led in a rotating fashion and 5) Ends with a Circle of Trust (COT).
Black Tuesday then informed the group that he is not a professional and to modify as necessary. He recited the creedo – “Leave no man behind, but leave no man where you found him.”
The PAX Moseyed a half mile up to the top of hole 7? Whatever the long downhill hole is – I crossed sarpy/DC border in the gloom, it’s lucky I showed up at the right place so don’t judge YHC for what YHC don’t know..for some Warm-O-Rama while viewing a beautiful sunrise…

A quote to start it off: “Enjoy the little things in life, because one day you’ll look back and realize they were the big things. “ unsure who said it…
Seize the day – take advantage of the time we have, and don’t take the little things for granted. Celebrating our 11th wedding anniversary today, seems like just yesterday we had our first 2.0, whos 8 now. Time flies, and with the passing time opportunities pass you by as well. WIth kids you blink and they’re grown up. Time with little kids is stressful – but you’ll miss it. We don’t have any free time and we don’t get to catch our breath – but its a privilege….another example – I was afraid to run the half, was always intimidated by it, but the M helped push me to do it. “Why not do it?” She said, “you’ve got this”. Ended up beating my goal time by 17 minutes – all I had to do was show up. An opportunity I would’ve missed had I chose to stay in the fartsack that morning.
Marriage, parenthood, etc – they’re all like a marathon – challenging at times, easy at times, but extremely fulfilling at the end of the day. WIth that said, you’ll never get to enjoy all the moments if you don’t take advantage of them when they’re there. Tomorrow isn’t guaranteed.
Thank you!! BT
