Mosey back to COT


I don’t get the chance to Q very often at Independence so I gladly seized the opportunity. Thank you all for coming out to push yourself through some humid miles this morning.

Great leadership today, Walker. Thanks for pushing the PAX to improve. Happy Birthday, Kenyan…glad you chose to share the day with us. Awesome speed today Ringo and Jester. You fellas led the whole time. Ponytail and Schrute, thanks for keeping my company. Boomer, great words on the freedom we have in Christ. White Hat and Lancelot, it was great seeing you fellas pushing hard together. I think we often take for granted the consistent guys in the middle. We pay attention to the front runners and the six, but the guys like Darth, Gold Plate, Anchor Bar, and Roxanne are steady, strong, and very important to the growth and staying power of F3 in this region. It was good to see Chuckie and Hawkeye this morning pushing the rock together. And I can only imagine how fast Pescador and Sandlot were on their run.

Don’t forget men, this is more than a workout group. We are more than a fellowship group. And if the only faith you encounter is in the COT, you need to re-evaluate your circumstances. We are better together. We are stronger together. We can go farther together. Don’t let politics or pandemics separate you from each other. Support each other. Be there for each other. But most importantly, find a way to encourage each other. If we forget that we are in this together, we will end up alone. Reach out to your brother and help lighten his load. We all need it sometime.

Thanks again for the hard work this morning. You could have stayed home but you chose to do the hard thing. For that, I thank you.
