F3’s mission is to invigorate and embiggen the noble spirit of leadership with small workout groups that are free of charge to all men.
Disclaimer: F3 is a peer led free workout group. I’m not a professional. I urge all participants at the Creek to scale, modify and adjust and run with safety in mind. I said as much before we started our run.
FNG’s: None. We were joined by a Charlotte area transplant from the Area 51 region. Vida has been living in the area for a little while now and we’re glad he decided to make his return to the gloom here at the Creek. I disclaimed to all runners and then announced the plan. Today was just going to be a self paced run. YHC would be running at an easy pace 9+ minute miles. All were free to stick with me or attack the 1 mile figure 8 course at their own pace. There would be no fanciness, just running. Any fanciness would be at the PAX discretion.
The group averaged around 3.5 to 4 miles this morning. I got to run with just about everyone at some point or another. Vida advised me that he enjoyed pain and would run whatever pace we needed from him. I like the attitude! Glad to see Oil Pan back out in the gloom. Redo informed us all that he’s fallen victim to peer pressure and signed up for a Spartan Race in 2018. Fantastic.
This is tapir week for YHC. In most marathon plans you have to tapir in the weeks leading up to the marathon. Many do not enjoy this time. I’m a lazy man trapped inside a runner’s mind and body, so I quite enjoy the recovery time and conversational miles. Today was not a barn burner by any means, but that’s alright.
Here is a picture of the Tapir.

Pledge, BOM, Devo:
Romans 7:15 Paul talks about the internal battle with sin. Good discussion with the men of the Creek about our own battles with our impulsiveness and sin. Often the internal struggles with what we know to be right and we do in sin bring misery into our lives. Lets rely on each other and our relationship with God during these times.
