Winter hit the men of Iron Valley hard.  We were averaging 17 or more each workout then winter hit.  Our numbers have been around 9 for months, even with the warmer weather.  I can’t believe it’s been just about a year now that we rolled 24 men to Iron Horse in Celebration of F3 NETN’s one year anniversary.  Today, we made an attempt to push men to be better and take away an excuse “………. if it were in Unicoi, I could make it…….”  Potter made it this moring and said it was time to stop making excuses.  TCLAPS man!!   YHC felt good about this morning!  The thoughts on this OA have been great from the PAX with in the group.  This additional day will not only be for your fitness but will also be a place centered around goals and form.  If we can make help one more PAX be a better father, husband, etc. we have succeeded! You can’t make change if your 6 is in the sack!  What is your excuse now!?!?

To plant, grow and serve small workout groups for the invigoration of male community leadership.
