8 PAX met 5:30am for the start of Anchor Time.   Was intimidating to see the young gun/rabbits; but relief when Oswald pulled and gave YHC a partner of similar age and stamina.   Here is how we went:

Circle Up for Warmups of:

  • Imperial Walkers x 20
  • Good Mornings x20
  • Sir Hamma Flamma Jim Jam Big Bopper Joan Jett and the Black Hearts Gong Show Moby Dick Au Pair is a Weenie Lewis & Clark Marco Polo I Can’t Believe I Ate the Whole Thing Plop Plop Fizz Fizz Fazio Arm Circles x 10 then 10 reverse
  • Mountain Climbers x 10

Fellowship Run all the way to Glenwood and arrive at the Harris Teeter Parking Lot for


4 Corners….I guess in honor of that old fart who use to coach down the road aways in Orange County.

  • Corner 1   Burpees   5,10,20
  • Corner 2   Merkins    10,20,40
  • Corner 3  Star Jumps 15,30,60
  • Corner 4  Squats       20,40,60,80

Partner up…stay with your Partner.   Sprint the two long sections; Backward Bear Crawl the two short sections.

This was tough.  While 4 Corners is very Simple in its Design, as was the case of the Big Nose Nasally sounding coach who invented it…..this F3 version of 4 Corners was brutal.      I was impressed with the absolute honesty of keeping count along with absolute proper form by E-Trade…the other Rabbits were probably doing this also, but E-Trade stuck out….YHC and brother Oswald upheld the Wilson S.O.P. of cheating as needed in count and form.

Run back up Oberlin….uphill is way harder than downhill folks.   Stop at Daniels Middle parking lot for tribute to Larry David’s “Stair Barrows’.    PAX then ran back to start parking lot for:


  • 20 American Hammers
  • 10 Windshield Wipers
  • Have a Nice Day


F3 5-Year Anniversary Party Announced for Saturday Night at Wendell Gee’s home.   Stated atire has digressed now to Bathing Suits and Bikinis….Life Alert hints at showing up wearing his Surf Speedo

Prayer Requests for Rain Man and his Family

YHC read Devotion below

COPAY Prayed us home well


Raleigh F3 has a bunch of solid young guys….as exhibited today.  I speak of their core as much if not more than their Physical Stamina.   Great to be part of F3 Raleigh

Passing The Test
TGIF Today God Is First Volume 1 by Os Hillman
January 26, 2017

The Lord has torn the kingdom out of your hands and given it to one of your neighbors – to David. – 1 Samuel 28:17b

When God anoints a person, a pattern of testing appears to take place at specific times in the leader’s life. God often takes each leader through four major tests to determine if that person will achieve God’s ultimate call on his or her life. The person’s response to these tests is the deciding factor in whether they can advance to the next level of responsibility in God’s Kingdom.

Control – Control is one of the first tests. Saul spent most of his time as king trying to prevent others from getting what he had. Saul never got to the place with God in which he was a grateful recipient of God’s goodness to him. Saul was a religious controller. This control led to disobedience and ultimately being rejected by God because Saul no longer was a vessel God could use.

Bitterness – Every major character in the Bible was hurt by another person at one time or another. Jesus was hurt deeply when Judas, a trusted follower, betrayed Him. Despite knowing this was going to happen, Jesus responded by washing Judas’ feet. Every anointed leader will have a Judas experience at one time or another. God watches us to see how we will respond to this test. Will we take up an offense? Will we retaliate? It is one of the most difficult tests to pass.

Power – Power is the opposite of servanthood. Jesus had all authority in Heaven and earth, so satan tempted Jesus at the top of the mountain to use His power to remove Himself from a difficult circumstance. How will we use the power and influence God has entrusted to us? Do we seek to gain more power? There is a common phrase in the investment community, “He who has the gold rules.” Jesus modeled the opposite. He was the ultimate servant leader.

Greed – This is a difficult one. Money has the ability to have great influence for either good or bad. When it is a focus in our life, it becomes a tool of destruction. When it is a by-product, it can become a great blessing. Many leaders started out well – only to be derailed once prosperity became a part of their life. There are thousands who can blossom spiritually in adversity; only a few can thrive spiritually under prosperity.

As leaders, we must be aware when we are being tested. You can be confident that each one of these tests will be thrown your way if God calls you for His purposes. Will you pass these tests? Ask for God’s grace today to walk through these tests victoriously.
