Story 7

From Walking in a Dazeto Posting in the Gloom The summer of 2017 was probably the hardest summer of my entire life. My mom was killed in an auto accident over the Fourth of July weekend after being life-flighted to the hospital. I had already been feeling down about life and what I think could […]

Story 2

Dedicated and Pushing it Every Day When I was first approached about F3 in Toledo, I thought that it was a pretty neat idea and that some guys would probably get behind it. I wasn’t sure that it was something I needed because I considered myself pretty active and “in shape.” I coach middle school […]

Story 1

Toledo… Really?!? I learned of F3 while living in Charlotte, NC (I lived there from 1999 – 2014). At that time, I heard rumblings of guys that worked out only a short jog from my home. I passed these men on my way to the gym or work and was curious about what the attraction […]
