The BackBlast:

4:55am I arrived and Disco Ball was next and let me borrow 4 of his bright lights. We chatted and the virtual BC prior to this one just never happened, bummer, but he quickly lined up another one at 8:00am. After this evening Disco Ball will be posting #200 tomorrow morning at the Black Diamond, wow! Farmer carried both coupons up the hill and that woke me up quickly, then another time with the lights and headed over to the flags where 8 other PAX arrived shortly after. No fartsacks, no one missing and no excuses. 10 total! 1 Respect Respect, 4 Respect, 4 PAX and 1 Hate Hate….LFG!

CoT – From the top of the hill, sunrise was glorious.

Society has set fake expectations that people tend to follow in order to feel adequate for where they are at. Age – you are too young to lift with 20 year olds. You are too old to run with 30 year olds. You are retired so you just need to sit around. Where did that come from? It’s just something people started saying to validate doing nothing, being lazy and letting themselves go.

Then there is the hate on Monday and I don’t get it. I have a job and purpose with an opportunity on the week ahead. We should be thankful for a new week, to have a job and receive and income and be looking forward to making a difference.I’ve heard countless nonsense about F3 from people that have never even considered being outside for a workout. Yes F3 is whatever you say it is and I am whatever you say I am.

We do not need to follow what society says we should be doing and we can create our own perceptions of what we should be doing. You have to embrace mental change, listen to yourself and climb the next mountain then the next then the next and never be satisfied in order to constantly get better physically, mentally and spiritually. If not, you will fall into what societies fake expectations of what they think life should look like. Aye!!

Dear God, Thank you for the men at the top of this mountain and this opportunity for us to get better. Many need something like F3 but they also need you. So help those that are seeking and asking questions to find their way. Let’s take a moment to pray silently and think about those that need you the most right now…………. In your name, Amen.
