[Al Borland]- went a little off script but here’s the gist.
I’m glad that I found F3 2 years and 3 months ago. This group of guys keep me grounded, discipled and have helped me to be a better man and husband. There is not a better group of men to spend my mornings with and it has been a real pleasure and honor to have had the opportunity to lead the Berm over the last year.
I mean this when I say it, I’ve never been around a group of so many leaders. Of which Schnitzel has always been someone that has impressed me.
This guy shows up every morning with a smile on his face even in the face exuding positivity. Despite all the day-to-day things that could throw someone off, being a husband, a dad and a Colorado fan- supporting your wife and family as your brother-in-law has fought through his health challenges. Never anything but positivity from you. The positivity you bring to the gloom is infectious and inspiring and it’s going to serve the men of F3 Omaha well over the next year. I say this with all sincerity. I’m excited for you and to see the berm continue to grow under your leadership.
I will keep this fairly brief, but I first wanted to express my thanks. AB thank you for your amazing leadership the past year and trusting me to carry forward The Berm greatness. Hopefully I can lead this site at the same level you did. Also a sincere Thanks to the F3 leadership and thanks to all of you that came out.
The date was May 4 2022, this was when Schnitzel was born into the world of F3. However, It was not all sunshine and rainbows that day. To be honest, my first workout sucked. It was terrible. I was EH’d by Truly and Slapshot and a man named Mufasa was on the Q. I remember it as if it were yesterday, getting out of the car and hearing Truly say “oh….you didn’t bring any gloves?” As I’m looking around, everyone has gloves on and then we jump straight into Mufasa’s burpee intro on Millard South’s disgusting cement parking lot (Im a Millard west alumn so I can say that). By the end of the Mufasas intro my hands were bloody….skin was missing…my brain told me that was stupid and never to go back, but luckily I didn’t listen that day….
Fast forward 18 months…I look around and I see for me, personally, the foundation of what was built over that time…And that foundation is fantastic relationships. No matter the season of life I was in, people were there. I’m not sure many of you know this but my brother in law was EH’d two weeks ago at Oracle. 16 months ago he was diagnosed with Stage 3 Pancreatic Cancer. When we were leaving Oracle that day someone mentioned to him “we’ve been doing a lot of praying for you Joey” and Joey look at me surprised. Driving to coffee that morning I explained to him that he’s essentially been a part of F3 for awhile now, he just didn’t know it. I told him I couldnt count how many times people texted or asked me about him after a workout. They didn’t know him…heck they barely knew me, these were guys I was just starting to get to know…but they reached out and still do. That’s how I knew F3 was different and these weren’t superficial. This is the crux of F3, a brotherhood who is there for you. Without fail. Consistently.
So I will leave you all with this…
I was trying to come up with a quote or saying for today and the one I kept thinking of was “consistency breeds opportunity”. Continue to consistently come out, consistently reach out, consistently serve others and amazing opportunities will arise.
The was passed in another peaceful transition of power.
Al Borland took us out in prayer.
