*YHC shared some Wisdom with the PAX:

2 things have been heavy on YHC’s heart lately: Adversity and Humility
YHC breathed life into these messages by sharing some transparent frustrations he has had over last few weeks with a strained wrist from a clumsy stumble outside of and F3 work-out and a pulled groint while training for an upcoming 1/2 marathon.

YHC also shared some time-honored wisdom from MLB Dodger Steve Garvey from years ago…his message which YHC heard Garvey speak recently at a local breakfast was as follows:

“The issue he has with today’s MLB players (you can insert: athlete, husbands, bosses, etc.) is that they act as if they are afraid to ‘run 90 feet anymore’…that distance between the base paths.  His point: are we (men) giving our very best towards the ‘next 90 feet’ of our marriages, raising our children, leading our employees at work, in our communities, etc.”

So…are we?  Are you?  Am I?

**PAX prayers were lifted up.

1st visit to the Morg for YHC…and I loved it.  Morglians are grinders.  Zero Mumblechatter. YHC was impressed with their commitment.  Proud of Fleabag bringing his Pops as an FNG and Fleabag running his 1st 5K recently.  Well done, brother.  Rain and travel kept many in the fartsack.  YHC still working on creating beat-downs while recovering from janky wrist.  Groint has fully recovered and today was the 1st real test of his wrist/hand strength.

F3 Mission review was:  ‘To plant, grow and serve small work-out groups for the invigoration of male community leadership.’

If we can’t grasp this and recite it……we are just here…going through the motions. HC not to do that.


>YHC kicking off 2nd/3rdF opportunity at his house this week on 5/23/Wed. Immediately following BC from 0630-0715ish. FREE Living Room Coffeeteria (LRC)
