COT/NAKED MOLESKIN:

F3 Convergence at Pullen Park on Saturday 3/1 @ 7:00am. Coffeeteria & Dufresne home visit to follow. No other workouts scheduled on that day. Not even Catalyst (Saturday -OR- Monday).

Mister Rogers, having recently shopped at Dollar Tree for circular-shaped glowstick necklaces & bracelets, reflected on the symbolism of the CIRCLE. In F3 we have our Circle of Trust, we form a Circle to warm up, we have a Circle of friends in our lives, & of course we recognize the circular Olympic rings identifying the winter & summer games. F3 workouts always come full Circle, starting & ending at the same location. The circle is symbolic of UNITY & FELLOWSHIP. A very meaningful symbol. It’s no coincidence that we see it at every F3 workout. Think about its significance in your life.

Slash led us out in prayer.

What an awesome group. Thanks for the opportunity to have some fun, Zero Hour PAX!

  • Great beatdown. I think I had a flashback during the burpee part of the rave triangle….or maybe that was just me about to pass out! Aye
