At 5:00 multiple options for Pre-runs were given. The usual 5k run, the rucks were available. Burpee and Murph challenges were also going strong.
At 5:30 Simmons welcomed PAX to F3 and thanked them for coming out for his Q. He reminded them of the mission to Plant, Serve, and Grow small workout groups for the invigoration of male community leadership. He then covered the 5 core principals of F3. 1) Open to ALL men. 2) Always free. 3) Always held outdoors. 4) Lead in a rotating fashion. 5) Ends with a Circle of Trust (COT). He also stated, “I am not a professional! And to modify as needed!” He stated the credo of, “Leave no man behind and leave no man where we found him!” Lastly he asked if we had any FNG’s (there was none).

“Getting after goals”
I just wanted to start the year by sharing some advice I give my clients and my wife about goals. On your best days you need to celebrate, but also keep yourself humble. On your worst days you need to be honest with yourself, but also give yourself a break.
As we chase our goals this year, there is going to be days, weeks, maybe even months when we make no progress. But, that doesn’t mean you can’t still get back after those goals. Remind yourself of the hard work you have done up to this point. Take the necessary rest and recovery needed to get back after it. The important thing is were setting goals to make ourselves better, and as long as were making attempts at progress, we’re heading in the right direction!
