  • 5 Burpees

  • 15 Imperial Walkers

"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith."
2 Timothy 4:7

The christian life is not easy. Some mistakenly assume that once they become children
of God, their struggles are over. Paul described his Christian life as a battle. He faced
persecution, misunderstanding, betrayal, and death threats. But he persevered!
His prize was a robust faith and a life filled with God's powerful presence.

Your faith is not proven by how you begin a race but by enduring to the finish.

  • Sparky expressed thanks for the positive results of F3 in his first month of posting.
  • YHC reminded the PAX that now was prime time to hit "Sad Clowns" as they will be making resolutions for the New Year - no plastic ferns or fake ficus trees here!
  • Lots of mumble-chatter about EH'ing some of our missing brothers.

"Follow me and I will make you fishers of Men" Matt 4:19

Patty Cake brought the devotion today. He pointed out how well the same christian principle could be applied to F3; with all the talk of Sad Clowns and missing brothers. It is up to the PAX to spread the good news and grow ourselves. We all know someone who would benefit from a little Fitness, Fellowship, and Faith!

Pole Work – Teams of 2 – Baseball Diamond

Each Team retrieved a “small” section of power pole from the trailer and shoulder carried it to the third base line. YHC then issued instruction for the "thang" - a different exercise was to be completed at each base, starting at home plate. As we began, the sound of a pole hitting the ground prompted the instruction that future drops would result in the responsible team giving the Q 10 Burpees before the PAX could continue. Facial expressions were priceless! YHC and his partner did our 10 at 2nd Base :-(

  • Home Plate - Post Hole Diggers (til Q gassed)
  • 1st Base - 25 OH Presses
  • 2nd - Colt 45's (til Q was gassed or dropped his pole!)
  • 3rd - 25 BB Sit-ups

Coupon Redemption - Teams of 2 - 1 Block & 1 Brick per Pax

While the Pax #1 "Milk Can" carries two blocks across the outfield, PAX #2 completes a series of individual exercises. Before returning with the Blocks, P1 must do 5 Blockees. Teams flapjack and continue until all individual counts are completed. Jack Rabbits start a second round while waiting on the 6. Individual counts are 50 curls, 50 tricep curls, 50 iron squats (all w/2 bricks)

"The harvest is abundant, but the workers are few" Matt 9:37

Jesus's words here are meant as a challenge for Christians to spread the Good News. However, they have a message for us in F3 as well. Do you have a friend, acquaintance, or a co-worker who needs to be in a little better shape? Someone whose health concerns? Someone who needs a little fellowship? Maybe something and/or somebody to believe in? Who do YOU know that needs a little F3 in their life? EH that sad clown and bring them to post!
