Brothers in Sweat

The Pineville Police lot filled up quickly forcing many to search for auxiliary space far afield. A quick disclaimer was delivered and we commenced a slow little baby jog to pick up the scattered Pax. Once united, we circled up for COP.

In tribute

Low miles, but a full-body workout was complete, but that’s not why we were here today. F3 is more than a workout. It’s an outlet for men to come together to get stronger. When we start our F3 journey strength is about push-ups and race times. But strength is more mental than physical, it’s more communal than individual. Strength is pushing through pain. Strength is discipline. Strength is the ability to ability ask for help. Strength is service. Thank you to all those who came out to support Dumpster Fire and a tribute to his amazing brother.

Thanks to all of you who posted this morning. It meant a lot to me.

If you can at all, please help me honor Tom’s legacy through his memorial fund. Not much, whatever you are led to do. We’d love to write as many people as possible to thank them for affirming the power and impact of Tom’s life through their donation.

Tom’s Memorial Fund is how he lives on, and as time goes on it has become more important to me as a statement for everything good about Tom’s heart for community.

I’m not chasing a dollar figure, but I AM chasing hand cramps from the countless letters we hope to write thanking you.

He was and is my brother. I still want the best for him…and I want to do my best to that end. Love you all.
