It was a Downpour at Blazing Saddle

THE SCENE: It was a warm and balmy morning at the saddle  and we did our best to make it rain.


Welcome to our Thursday F3 workout at the Saddle, my name is Rainout and this is my VQ. I am not a professional and we are not paid or paying to be here. Workout at your own risk and modify as needed. Let’s do this! The musical playlist included songs that were all about the rain and included classics like Fool in the Rain(Led Zeppelin), Blame It on the Rain(Milli Vanilli), Purple Rain(Prince), No Rain(Blind Melon), A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall(Bob Dylan), Umbrella(Rihanna), Here comes the Rain again(Eurythmics), Fire and Rain(James Taylor), and Set Fire to the Rain(Adele).

We spoke about  Proverbs 27:17, “Iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another” To me this is what F3 is all about. We are all out here making each other stronger and we wouldn’t be able to do this alone. This message applies to our work, family and friends. Everyday we have the opportunity to help those around us be better and stronger through support, encouragement, and friendship.
We thanked God for giving us the opportunity to workout and get stronger together and to keep watch over our friends and family. Woody provided pumpkin spiced coffee even though it doesn’t feel like Fall.
Saturday is the Dad and 2.0 Donut workout at Mothership. Don’t miss it.
