0445 – Pre Run – Multiple PAX, too many to count.
0515 – QIC kicked off the morning with the description of F3 – Fitness, Fellowship, and Faith.
Five Core Principles – Free, Open to ALL Men, Always Outside, Lead in a rotating fashion, and Ends in a Circle of Trust.
Credo – Leave no man behind, but leave no man where you found him.
The Mission of F3 is to Plant, Grow, and Serve small workouts groups for the reinvigoration of male community leadership.
There were no FNG’s present, nonetheless, QIC noted he was not a fitness professional so the PAX should modify the workout as needed.

15 Tappy Taps
10 Big Ones
10 Second stretch each quad
YHC thanked the PAX for joining him to celebrate his 2 yrs of F3. Paradise was the second AO I had every posted at when I started to
The week before contained a lot of burpees and hills, so YHC decided to just take a launt down the Big Papio Trail. I kept it simple; 20 mins out,
20 mins back. We got spread out quite a bit, so there was plenty of picking up the 6 to go around. We got back to the flags a little after 0600 and I
saw some PAX getting some MARY in before everyone got back. We skipped normal MARY and got right into NOR.
Announcements/Prayers: Brush Up event lead by Thor, Show Drive lead by Frosty.
COT: I kept the message simple but meaningful this morning and offered the PAX some insight as to what I have learned over the past few years. Going through and learning to lead beatdowns as well as leadership discussions has helped me grow in two different ways: (1) I have gained a new sense of confidence not just in community leadership, but also confidence in myself and (2) learning how to be honest with myself. I have been trying hard to figure out a way to balance the meaning of selflessness and selfishness. Thank you to all the PAX here this morning as everyone has been a part of my F3 journey.
YHC concluded the morning with prayer.
Aye! – Invictus
