Warmarama: Several showed up for the 30-minute pre stretch to get nice and loose for the stations, and I gotta say it was a joy to watch @Cosmo in motion. One word to describe his attempt at running high knees? Poetry.

Moleskin: Today I challenge the pax to think of what F3 means to you. Not only what it means but what it does for you. Now think about what an impact it would have on the community if you were to bring one person to experience F3 this week at our Open House what that could mean. We all have the ability and we all have the responsibility of bringing men into our ranks to encourage and promote leadership. Let’s all put our best foot forward this week to make it happen!

On a personal note, this event is so much fun for me! It’s not a traditional workout or bootcamp, but it’s fun to do something different and I appreciate being able to lead y’all through this. Looking forward to this twice a year event (Spring and Fall). Until next time!

SYITG, Kwame
