Today is YHC’s 121st post and marks one year of F3. One year ago today YHC was in a very different place in some ways – while never really fitting the sad-clown mold (which is why Choker never EH’d), F3 has changed YHC in some ways (for the better). Finding a group of like-minded (or at least similarly-minded) men who work to understand and embrace their role here on earth has been great. And some friendships that already existed have be fostered by the forging we face together every time we post.

YHC has faced some physical adversity this year (though this isn’t new – a lifetime of abused joints means this has been the norm for a while now) and there have been times of frustration, but showing up here, even limping along while you guys smoked the workouts, has been really encouraging. YHC has come to realize the second F of posting is really more important that the first F (on a personal level) – while YHC enjoys the workouts, the habit of working out solo is a personal strength – but the mumble chatter makes posting to F3 so much better.

We were created as social beings, and F3 helps us be more like what we were formed to be.

Despite the playground being gone (it will return), the shininess of this AO remains.
