I again re-emphasized the importance of the second F.  I shared this a couple weeks back at Smackdown but with a different crowd, I thought it was appropriate to share what we mean by the second F. While the first F is the “magnet” that brings us here, the second F is the “glue” that keeps us coming back.  I will admit, I don’t particularly like exercise.  For me, it’s a means to an end.  However, I keep coming back to F3 not only because of the exercise, but because of the fellowship with other like-minded men to support each other.  Nobody likes doing tough things.  However, when you have a group of men like we have, it makes it that much easier and forges a bond that is unbreakable.  Iron truly sharpening iron.  I am thankful for these men and the opportunity to lead and help everyone get better.


We all had a scare this morning when one of our brothers was in distress.  Luckily, there were three physicians there should anything have happened.  

Outbreak really got a kick out of the pickle pointers and there was a lot of snickering amongst the PAX

Our FNG had to leave early so he didn’t get named

Iron Butt led us out by saying something positive about everyone in attendance. 


Smackdown is going to Tuesday/Thursday starting in October.  Reach out and send someone that way.  It will also be a once a month IronPax AO.
