CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

Do hard things.

An interesting map is on display in the British Museum in London. It’s an old mariner’s chart, drawn in 1525, outlining the North American coastline and adjacent waters. The cartographer made intriguing notations on areas of the map that represented regions not yet explored. He wrote, “Here be giants,” “Here be fiery scorpions,” and “Here be dragons.” Fortunately, explorers ignored his warnings—and discovered whole new continents as a result!

The cartographer’s notes did not reflect truth—they reflected fear. In our own lives, it’s not actual giants, scorpions, and dragons that keep us from doing hard things. It’s the fear of them. Once we take that scary first step with God’s help—and keep going forward—we’ll experience the bigger, more fulfilling life God has in mind for us.

Fear is the fence that keeps us stuck in our comfort zones. To be fair, we usually feel fear for a reason: often something is outside that should make us afraid. The problem is when we just sit there.

We wait.  And we wait.

Why? We’re waiting to stop feeling afraid before we attempt anything. We’re often afraid to try something new because of painful past experiences. We tried stepping out before, and it blew up in our faces. We poured everything we had into something we cared about, and our efforts fell short. We don’t want to embarrass ourselves again.

The truth, though, is that if we’re waiting until the fear and feelings of inadequacy go away, we’ll never venture outside our comfort zones. Until we take a step in spite of our fears, none of us will ever truly be able to do hard things. If we want to continue to grow and learn for the rest of our lives, we must beat these fears—not by making them go away, but by recognizing that there is something worse than discomfort, worse than the unknown, worse than failure. The worst thing is to never try at all.

God is ready to work through us, even with our limitations.
Instead of worrying about future fears, we can, as Corrie ten Boom wrote,
“Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.”

How could your life be different if you chose to do hard things by stepping outside your comfort zone?

Prayers:
Beef Log – biopsy for Amy (his M), pray for benign and nothing to worry about
Tiger Lily- Pray for final prep for move and the road trip to WA

THE SCENE: Warm. Shorts weather. Lots of PAX.
F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER:  Everyone was welcomed and disclaimed with the exception of Chuck E Cheese who showed up as we were beginning our march and YHC forgot to additionally disclaim him. I’ll do better next time.
WARM-O-RAMA:

Moseyed to First Formation. Ran IC in a 3 column formation while YHC called cadences. Cadences were When I Say One, When My Granny, and I Can Run All Day. A tire with a bottle water was also pulled while PAX were running IC or moseying, and was rotated as necessary.
THA-THANG:

After running IC to our first station, PAX were asked what year our country declared its independence. PAX answered correctly and avoided the penalty.

We then spelled “America” with:

  • ATMs (Alternating Shoulder Taps ICx20, Tempo Merkins ICx10, Merkins ICx10)
  • Monkey Humpers ICx20
  • Energizer Bunnies ICx10
  • Red Bull Smurf Jacks ICx10
  • Imperial Walkers ICx20
  • Carolina Dry Docks ICx10
  • ATMs ICx 10-5-5

Mosey single file approximately 200 yards and performed alternating shoulder taps until all-in. PAX were asked what country we were declaring independence from and who was their king. Most PAX answered England/Britain and got King George, but our youngest PAX out there, Prime Time (12), gave the exact answer of King George III. No penalty.

Mosey to Beaver Lake and began 11s on the hill next to the lake. The method of travel down hill was the Bear Crawl, Derkins at the bottom, Backwards Run to the top, and Bobby Hurleys at the top. Performed exercise for approximately 7 minutes until Q called time.

Mosey to the beginning of the Tour De Wolf. PAX circled up and performed Merkins in a rotating fashion, one after another, until all in. Q asked the PAX to complete this sentence from the Declaration of Independence: We hold these truths to be self-evident…

All PAX completed the first half of the sentence of “that all men are created equal,” but paused thinking that was the end. Lipton confidently finished out the sentence with a resounding “That they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that among them are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” No penalty.

Mosey to flags.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

Talked about this grievance from the Declaration of Independence:

Grievance 19[edit]

“For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offenses:”

Summary[edit]

On the fifteenth of April, 1774, Lord North introduced a bill in Parliament, entitled ” A bill for the impartial administration of justice in the cases of persons questioned for any acts done by them in the execution of the laws, or for the suppression of riots and tumults in the province of Massachusetts Bay, in New England.” This bill, known as the Administration of Justice Act, provided that in case any person indicted for murder in that province, or any other capital offence, or any indictment for riot, resistance of the magistrate, or impeding the revenue laws in the smallest degree, he might, at the option of the Governor, or, in his absence, of the Lieutenant Governor, be taken to another colony, or transported to Great Britain, for trial, a thousand leagues from his friends, and amidst his enemies.

The arguments used by Lord North in favor of the measure, had very little foundation in either truth or justice, and the bill met with violent opposition in parliament. The minister seemed to be actuated more by a spirit of retaliation, than by a conviction of the necessity of such a measure. “We must show the Americans,” said he, ‘ that we will no longer sit quietly under their insults; and also, that even when roused, our measures are not cruel or vindictive, but necessary and efficacious.” Colonel Barre, who, from the first commencement of troubles with America, was the fast friend of the colonists, denounced the bill in unmeasured terms, as big with misery, and pregnant with danger to the British Empire. “This,” said he, “is indeed the most extraordinary resolution that was ever heard in the Parliament of England. It offers new encouragement to military insolence, already so insupportable. By this law, the Americans are deprived of a right which belongs to every human creature, that of demanding justice before a tribunal composed of impartial judges.”[17]

The text of the bill contained the following:

In that case, it shall and may be lawful for the governor, or lieutenant-governor, to direct, with the advice and consent of the council, that the inquisition, indictment, or appeal, shall be tried in some other of his Majesty’s colonies, or in Great Britain.[18]

YHC talked about the Americans refusing to accept that they might have to return to England to stand trial in a foreign land among men who were not their peers.

Men today are facing powers that want to pull us back to places we don’t need to or want to go. Surrounding ourselves with other men to hold us accountable, to help us move through things that will pull us back, and to make us better is what F3 is about. We’re not just here to get better physically, but to grow spiritually, mentally, and emotionally, and to not let the things of the past pull us back.

MOLESKIN:

Moseying with such a large group over a long distance presents challenges, and trying to challenge each individual at the level they’re on is also difficult. Running IC at the beginning of the workout and having slower runners up front to set the pace both pushes the slower runners, but also allows better runners to warm up (or pull a tire if you’re lucky). It also keeps runners together and helps with motivation. Definitely not something that should be used all the time, but it’s a good tool to know and have with larger groups.

I appreciate TP and others bringing Gatorade and water out today. It was hot and we ran a lot, but we didn’t have any heat casualties.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:
Dads +2.0s Saturday at 0700. If you have questions, Slots has probably already asked it in the Mumblechatter.

Great morning for my final KOTB at Neverland. The mumblerchatter was great, Zima commented on my stature and someone (other than YHC) said RESPECT after Zima during the COT.

  • James 5:12: But above all, my brothers, do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or by any other oath, but let your “yes” be yes and your “no” be no, so that you may not fall under condemnation.

A staple mantra in YHC’s household is “Say what you mean and mean what you say“. As leaders in our workplaces, communities, and most especially our homes, our word must be our bond.

  • Shared the following commentary: Why is it so difficult for us to simply say yes or no? Perhaps because we like the ambiguity of not having to follow through with what we say. Or maybe because it’s easier to put off a tough decision for a later time. We may flirt with tendencies towards deceitfulness and not want others to know our true intentions. Whatever the reason, God expects His children to be clear cut with their words. We are not to wade in the subtle grey areas of ambiguity with our words. Rather we are to be people who speak plainly, clearly, and truthfully so that we aren’t condemned by our own words.

QIC prayed for Ace Ventura and his M as they bring in 3 new foster children for the first time, Billy Blanks and his M in their adoption endeavors, and safe travel for Chamorro and family.

Long Term Impact and Blind-Spots – My 2.1 decided while YHC was out of town to try to start a fire in the garage, he was successful in lighting sawdust soaked in gasoline on top of a CMU on fire and burning a plastic bucket. Needless to say, he was not thinking about the impacts that a fire in the garage could cause. YHC challenged the PAX to use others that have been there or others around us to look at our blind spots and look at the long-term impacts our actions might cause.

MOLESKIN:
This morning was everything I love about the Mothership. It is great to see people that you normally do not get to work out with; in addition to the extra 15 min seeming like the workout will never actually end. The mumble-chatter was great (expect nothing less from BB), and everyone got better. I am truly gonna miss all three Fs with you HIM!
