    No FNG’s, so right into Mission and Principles.
    F3 – Fitness, Fellowship, Faith
    Mission –Plant, grow and serve small workout groups for men for the invigoration of male community leadership.
    The core principles of F3 are that it must:
    • Be free of charge
    • Be open to all men
    • Be held outdoors, rain or shine, heat or cold
    • Be led by men who participate in the workout in a rotating fashion, with no training or certification necessary. You versus you. Modify or stop an exercise if you need to. The most important thing is that nobody gets hurt.
    • End with a Circle of Trust
    Snowy, wet, icy. Reiterated that we all need to be careful and not get hurt. No running is planned but we still need to watch it.
    Warm up (in cadence)
    (20) 4ct SSH
    (15) 4ct Windmills
    (10) 4ct Imperial Walkers
    (5) 6ct Burpees

    Just as we were getting ready to begin the workout a salt truck pulled into the CSM parking lot so YHC called an audible, we picked up the cones and moseyed into the Key Bank drive thru ATM parking lot for the workout. This lot had NOT been plowed which was actually an improvement in footing.

    The “Thang”: Descending ladder of two exercises. Perform 10 reps of each exercise at the first set of cones, move to the other set of cones, perform 9 reps of each exercise, move back to first set of cones, perform 8 reps of each exercise, etc. all the way down to one rep of each exercise. Hold Al Gore when complete. Once 4 PAX were finished, we regrouped for the next set of exercises and movement between cones.

    Round one: Merkins and squats. Movement: Walking lunges
    Round two: Merkins and air presses (2=1). Movement: Squat twists
    Round three: Merkins and absolutions. Movement: Traveling Imperial Walkers

    Called time during round three. Moseyed back to the CSM parking lot for:

    Circle of Trust with Count-O-Rama, Name-O-Rama, The Six, Announcements and a Ball of Man with prayer. Trinity was the six. Got his name because he worked for Oracle at the time and that company name led to The Matrix movie, which led to Trinity. He keeps coming out for the fellowship, the impact F3 has on his life and the impact we are making on the community. Prayers for Dauber who is on the mend and brings so much energy to this group and we wish him a speedy recovery. Prayers for Woodstock’s family and for his wife’s surgery. Prayers for veterans, first responders, and all those that protect our safety and freedom. Prayers for F3 brothers who are MIA and that God would fill us with the Spirit to reach out to those guys and get them back out in the gloom.

    Moleskin/Spreadsheet from the Gloom:
    • Early winter blast in the Glass City. 3” of snow. 20 degrees. No wind (thank the SkyQ!). Hands and feet got wet but we stayed off our sixes and our backs.
    • Honored to be a part of this group and get the chance to lead these HIM, especially at The Crucible. It is great to see us come together as a region and support this AO. Representatives from SYL, TOL and PBG/MAU all attended this beatdown.
