Moleskin : This was my 200th post so I wanted to lead it. I don’t want to celebrate that ‘achievement’, but rather highlight why I keep coming back – I get inspired by these men every week. F3 men have a few common traits that I want to emulate and each beatdown, I feel like I’m getting 1% better by the company I keep.

  • F3 men are Strong. Mentally too – they push through a set of exercises with a determination I haven’t seen in a few years.
  • F3 men are durable. We get up in the dark, rain, cold … the Q throws something at us and we adapt. It becomes training for life.
  • F3 men are nice guys. Just plain + simple – we wait for the Six, we encourage the guy having a hard day, it gets better.
  • F3 men are dads and husbands, just like me and I’m learning how to better talk to or treat my close ones by hearing their advice.

This is more than a workout. Kodak/Out!
