CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

Embrace the moment. 31 years ago yesterday (10/28) I was at an Ole Miss football game as a 9 year old kid where a player (Chucky Mullins) made a hit that paralyzed him and later (1.5yrs) through complications from cost him his life. I wrote him, got to visit him after, and saw how it changed my life and my view @ at an early age. And continues to. I set out that day hoping my team wouldn’t lose to Vanderbilt again, and walked away with a life experience that’s shaped my mindset and attitude. Similarly, when Wheezer invited me to come to F3 in June, I didn’t have expectations it could be life changing event. Only that my wife questioned me waking up that early to workout. It’s exceeded what I anticipated and allowed me comradery, accountability, and a desire to better myself while I cheer other like-minded guys as we chase similar goals. Embrace each day and the opportunity it presents. We can’t ever be sure what’s coming next.

MOLESKIN:
It was a wet & windy 60 degree morning. The challenge of dealing with that, a rookie on Q, and literally submerging feet & bodies in water was met by all. We completed despite the conditions, and didn’t let that affect our outcome. Kudos to each.
