Four Pax posted on the first day of the year (MaryLou, Noonan, Sweet-tooth and Homer taking the Q). No resolutions. No chest-beating. No ambitious declarations. Just work. And work they did:

Naked Moleskin Alert: What does “iron sharpen iron” mean to YHC? In concrete ways, it means losing weight; running faster; adopting ridiculous paleo eating habits; doing more 5Ks, 10Ks, etc.; laughing more and suffering with someone else. These are just some benefits that all are traceable back one or more Pax in F3 Chicago. It’s a rare thing to find yourself among likeminded souls who you enjoy being around and who give you gifts you don’t expect. Thanks to the Pax who have given much to sharpen me for the past two years. Here’s to an army of sharper men in 2020.
