About 45 days ago Ozark lead a workout in which we had to do pull ups.  I remember having a conversation with Den Mother in between sets where we both said, “I hate pull ups & I really suck at them” & today is the culmination of that. Men, F3 teaches to not only run at the things we are not good at & we hate to do it teaches us to break down the fucking wall when we get there. I started this pull up journey only being able to complete 3 real pull ups & today I did 8 without breaking a set.  I have a long way to go but what I know is I have helped callous my mind to something I suck at.  I say it a lot of times but we have to do the things that suck & we hate b/c ultimately we are preparing for the expected but also being ready for the unexpected.  Aye!



Dear lord thank you for this opportunity to wake up early in the gloom & experience your greatness.  We are humbled for the opportunity you give us every day to be in your glory & serve you as leaders in our community.  Watch over those that are not as fortunate as us & give them healing & strength in their struggles.  In your name we pray.  Amen!
