– Welcome FNG Cyclone who gave a good biography, but a terrible poker face when the suggestion of his college rivalry team came up. During coffeeteria, his Hawkeye kit showed evidence of a committed Alumni.

Closing comment : Durability. Durability is a condition that is stregthened through hardship and chaos. It’s what we do when we come out in the dark and cold winter months and workout together. It’s what we gain by leading a group of men through a workout. It is a condition like Fitness, Fellowship and your personal Faith that can be accelerating or deccelerating.
I challenge the men of F3ETown to examine their durability and push it to become stronger.

T-Claps to the F3E-Town men for getting together and serving the community. Doing hard stuff in the early dark hours of the day is one thing, but there is no better way to tighten a bond than to serve together.
Good job. /Kodak Out!!
