Thank you to Honeypot and the other 17 PAX who showed up with me to Wall St. on this gloomy gloom to work on some endurance and make each other better for it. Thank you for the push from all PAX in attendance. You all did an awesome job this morning. Keep up the great work.


YHC had asked the PAX to be warm by 0500 so we could start, and we ensured that all PAX were ready to run on the roads (i.e. safety first).


This morning was simple. We were running a 60-Min. Tempo Run. 20 Min decent pace, 20-min. 5K-10K pace, 20-min. decent pace. The route was down India Hook toward town, left at Westminster Church, right on Charlotte Ave., and turn around at 0530 returning the same way. The PAX were able to achieve 5-7 miles this morning.


I have shared this before, but it is important for F3 to continue strong, so I am sharing it again today.

Galatians 6:2 Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.

F3 Workouts are led by men (who participate in the workout) in a rotating fashion, with no training or certification necessary. This is one of the 5 Core Principles of F3.

Let’s break this down a little.

  1. Led by men. This is obvious as F3 workouts are open to all men (another Core Principle).
  2. Men who participate. We are not to be the clipboard holder and whistle blower. We are to participate in the workout as well. An important note here is ‘If you can’t do it, don’t Q it’. This is very important as you don’t want to ask other men to do something that you yourself cannot do.
  3. In Rotating Fashion. This is the key point I want to set our focus on today. WE (all of us) are to lead workouts in a rotating fashion. I have been looking at the Q Schedule lately and have noticed a lack of Q’s or a lack of different Q’s. We need to step up and request to Q at workouts. This is what keeps F3 fresh. If it is the same person leading all the time, he will eventually run out of ideas and our workouts will become stale. Then, men get bored and stop showing up. Trust me, it happens. REACH OUT TO SITE Q TODAY AND ASK TO BE PUT ON THE Q SCHEDULE. Or better yet, put your own name on it when it works for you, and then tell the Site Q. I am sure he will be grateful.
  4. Our PAX have no training or certification to ‘lead’ our workouts. However, we lead because we are men who are called to lead by SkyQ. No certification or professional training is required to ask men to do Merkins (and do it with them) and keep a cadence. I will, however, suggest a PAX who is just starting F3 or who has not Q’d in a while to go to Q School or practice his cadence at home. It will make the workout go much smoother.

Men, this is important. F3’s Mission is to plant, grow, and serve small workout groups for men for the invigoration of male community leadership. Remember that and serve our Region by leading a workout today.
