17 Salmon met at Assssssspen (Antioch Elementary Thursdays at 0530) for the promise of some surprises.
8 PAX answered the Cowbell on Wednesday.
PRAYERS FOR AFGHAN BROTHERS AND SISTERS
4 PAX at Last Call for a change of pace.
THE GOOD NEWS: With the small crowd, it allows the Q to use gear and do different things . . . Kind of like when I started F3 and Transporter used to come rolling into Cutty Middle dragging his trunk due to all the gear . . . for a 5 man workout.
THE BAD NEWS: Not really any place to hide . . . If you want to modify or coast into the weekend with limited efforts, a small crowd makes it difficult . . . Since Dasher is staring at you the entire workout
7 PAX still showed up to Pursuit after Rubbermaid pre-blasted “Weigh-in before and after workout to see who loses the most weight . . . The less clothes the better.” Yikes.
LAST CALL: YHC on Q at Marvin High tomorrow (Friday) at 0602 (that is not a typo). Sleep in and come out to an old school F3 workout with gear and limited running
At least 8 PAX believe the answer to the title’s question is YES.
However, does a running workout deserve a great BackBlast?
At least 1 Q believes the answer is NO
Mosey to Kensington for warmup
MAIN EVENT: Running (Duh! It’s a running workout)
.5 Mile at 1 mile pace
.4 Mile at same pace
.3 Mile at same pace
Mosey off campus to Kensington Place
.2 Mile at faster pace
Repeato x 4
Mosey to COT for light stretching
RECAP: This is the part where Q talks about everybody working hard and it’s an honor to lead. Blah blah blah.
But I’m not sure if everybody worked hard. Only the mirror really knows. I know the guy in my mirror hasn’t been handing out any high fives to me lately. Taking time off during vacations and then trying to get back into the routine is tough. So my encouragement is to commit the night before. Either to a fellow PAX or better yet, HC (hard commit) in the NewsChannel . . . That will surely get Zin excited . . . Tell him that Dunkin told you it was allowed.
Prayers for Snowball as he takes on a new title and responsibility at work. May he continue to lead well and follow God’s calling for his life.
For those who weren’t at Waxhaw’s Memorial Day Convergence, I wanted to share an exciting announcement for our region. While some of you think that F3 runs smoothly on its own, this organization is special because of many HIM (High Impact Men) continue to live selflessly in order to reach more men.
There are about 50 Site Qs who help keep our workouts active, relevant, fun, safe, and growing. Then there are 10 guys who have been selected to “The Board” to help F3 Waxhaw on mission and accelerating in all areas. I have had the honor of being a part of this Board since we launched almost 2 years ago (NOTE: What is “The Board” and what do they do? See below for more details).
Today, I was VERY excited to handoff the Nantan role to Gerber. (NOTE: What is the “Nantan” and what does he do? See below for more details). The vast majority of you know Gerber because of his speed, his tripod, his love of ClyentDinner, or because his 7 year old son SpeedBump has kicked your butt during a workout at some point. But I have gotten to know Gerber a lot better over the past couple of years and I want to share some items about him:
This is just a little bit about F3 Waxhaw’s new Nantan. He is going to help F3 Waxhaw go to the next level. HOWEVER, one thing that the Nantan role is not . . . A lone soldier. HE NEEDS OUR HELP. Let’s line up alongside Gerber and work together to accelerate all 3 Fs . . . Both personally and as a Region.
I will be praying for Stase as he takes on this new role; for wisdom, for discernment, for protection in his marriage, for his health, and for an overwhelming group of men to rally around him to encourage and uplift him. LET’S DO THIS! ALL THE BEST MY FRIEND!
F3 WAXHAW BOARD:
NANTAN: The Q of the Region. The cultural and spiritual leader of his PAX, who represents but does not govern. Encourages the “Plant/Grow/Serve” mission and ignites the need for male community leadership amongst the Pax.
8 men gathered at Cuthbertson after our workouts to welcome our 2 newest Board members and discuss
removing the Bot from the Playhouse how we are accelerating in all 3 Fs. This backblast is an attempt to share with the PAX what the Board discussed and the actions/takeaways from the meeting.
MEMORIAL DAY CONVERGENCE:
I’ll end this backblast with the same message from a couple meetings ago . . . A SINCERE AND BIG THANKS to all the leaders of F3 (and especially these Board members).
