Story 24

From Lonely, “Sad Clown”to Clowning with Palsand Getting Yoked They say most men live lives of quiet desperation. I could relate to that…a ton!  It was the year 2007, like a frigid dousing of water  slapping me in the face, I sat in my favorite chair in the living room…stunned.  Where once there were three […]

Story 23

Strength Through Brotherhood My story begins several years before F3 came to Toledo. When my second child was born in 2009, I was 60 pounds overweight and in poor condition physically. I was 30 years old but felt much older than that, like my best years were behind me. I successfully lost about 25 pounds […]

Story 22

I’m blessed to have a large family with the majority of them in town. Things seemed to fall into place with nearly everything; the […]

Story 19

Facing the ChallengeNot Alone How did I get here? The alarm is set with a “4” as the first digit and the little dot indicating PM is not illuminated. And surprisingly, I am already up, switching it off before it blurts out to disturb my wife.  The alarm is set with a “4” as the […]

Story 18

Leading Yourself “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” -Bill George The hardest person you will ever lead is yourself.
