–  Battle Buddy 1 switches to merkins while Battle Buddy 2 sprints to a cone, completes appropriate burpees and sprints
   —  1st cone = 5 Burpees
   —  2nd cone = 10 Burpees
   —  3rd cone = 15 Burpees

The theme of the morning was “better together.” We partnered up with a “Battle Buddy” for the morning to push and encourage each other through the workout. One of the characteristics of a sad clown is he lives a lonely, isolated life…F3 is the antithesis of that! We live by the simple truth that we are exponentially stronger physically, mentally and spiritually together than alone. Initially, most men come to F3 to work on themselves, which is a good thing, but soon we all learn that iron truly does sharpen iron. Something powerful happens to a PAX when men start showing up for each other as much for themselves. As Solomon says, “Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up!” (Ecclesiastes 4:9-11). We put this into practice this morning, and each of us leave better because of it.


When the K-Town PAX met up to head to Johnson City we didn’t know what to expect, but spirits where high and we were ready to met our new brothers. When we got there and Donatello was waiting for us and rolled out the red carpet. YHC can say right now…the men of JC get it! They showed up ready to work and killed it. Mumblechatter was high and the camaraderie was instant with our F3 Tennessee brothers.
