As many of you by now have witnessed, I could use some Q school.  My lack of correct exercise lingo/terminology and all applicable commands for initial warm-up has much to be desired.  But for now, I am OK with that because I like variety; but I am going to work on doing better and assimilating to the prescribed F3 ethos.  As I just typed the last sentence, it reminded me of a saying we have here at work.  “Don’t focus on the mouse balls as the elephants are running by”, just think about that one for awhile.  I started F3 in an effort to get back into exercising but quickly realized that the physical side of the group was only a small part.  The relationships, fellowship, accountability, and motivation are all other aspects of this group that have great value.  So please call me out, hold me accountable, motivate me, place expectations on me; it will only make me better.  Those of us with kids all know how true this is statement is and only wish our children would realize this also before they are out of the house.  Now I need to go print off a bunch of Q stuff from the F3 website!

Thank You, Brothers – J5
