Recover Recover reminder from Headlock
COT. prayers for Headlock today at 9 as he meets with his surgeon regarding options for his shoulder. Prayers for the heart of our nation. We were encouraged to keep EH’ing other men who need F3 in their lives.
MOLESKIN YHC wanted to take the opportunity with the less than beautiful weather to encourage PAX to work on our mental toughness. That’s one of the reasons I was so thankful that Snooki said the motivator comment because all the PAX would assume we were done but we had not completed our full 45 minutes. The thing I love about F3 and the growruck, not that I was able to attend, and Dreads comments about “you can do anything for 90 seconds” is the fact that we really can do a lot more than we think we can. I reminded the guys of a comment I used to say back when we were much smaller here in Indianapolis which was “if you don’t post because of the bad weather you can never look at your wife during a movie about Special Forces and tell her “you know I think I could have done that”. ” I say that somewhat to be funny but I also really want to challenge guys to look at all the situations in our lives where we can tell ourselves we can do this, it’s not going to go on forever, and pick up those around us and push through. And I’m just now convicted of the fact that what I’m saying to you guys is what I really need to be telling myself. I was very thankful for the 10 men that showed up, as I told them it would have been miserable to do by myself in the rain, and I hope that if no one had shown up I would have had the mental toughness to just do it.
