The F3 Brotherhood

THE SCENE: I got up at 0410. I felt sorry for myself. I didn’t want to run. I didn’t think anyone would show up. I regretted organizing a run today. I was still feeling sore from Tuesday stair climbs. Me, me, me. Then, out of the gloom, 2 of my F3 brothers that I’d never met before showed up. F3 aint about me. Never has been and never will be. Seeing two brothers take their red pill was all I needed to fix my attitude. 
THA-THANG:
A leisurely stroll around Memphis. 6.2 miles, 10,000 meters. I haven’t run in this area a ton, so we modified the route a bit to stay off of some busier roads.  

COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
I was so certain no one would show up that I definitely didn’t plan a COT. This turned into my COT. Sometimes, all that is required is showing up and moving the ball forward. Boy am I thankful that we all showed up this morning. When you’re stuck, figure out 1 thing you can do to improve your situation and do that thing. You will often find your situation improves dramatically (and even your attitude).
MOLESKIN:
Street running in this area isn’t fantastic. It’s not terrible this early in the morning, but more planning is advised for the future.

Running is fantastic for extended conversations. I was able to get to know two of my brothers much better than I normally would after a single workout together.

Old forest already has a solid Tuesday run going. Moving forward, that will be the norm. 
ANNOUNCEMENTS:
10 miler on Saturday from the Barracks.
