What is your goal for this year? Where there is no vision the people will perish according to Proverbs. In Philipians 3:12-14, the author Paul who is in prison, soon to die states that he has not arrived yet so neither have we. Paul states we have 1 thing to do…forget the past and strain forward, press on toward the goal. Remember the past is merely a rudder to guide you, not a anchor to hold you back. Remember pressing on in your daily walk in F3, as a husband, as a father, as church member, as a employee will be difficult and take max effort as it did in our Tabata today.


Mumble chatter was present. Quickly into the Tabata there was much groaning and grumbling. PAX were not happy with Rodeo for having shared the timer app with Stork on a previous beatdown. There was a lot of “That’s what she said” when PAX asked on several occasions if they had to do another round. Facetious ‘Congrats’ were given to the Q for a great beatdown.


Announcements included Chubbys ministry and upcoming Tuff Muff. Prayer requests included AOL and his family, Blair Witch’s father and his battle with cancer, and Sunscreen’s new semester in grad school.
