It was a snowy Sat in mid-March of 2015 that I showed up to my first beatdown. Little did I know what I impact that that choice would have on the next multiple years of my life. F3 has provided me with lifelong friendships and many hours of entertainment and memories over the past several year. We often say that it’s a pleasure to lead you guys but from the bottom of my heart it has been an honor to lead the PAX. God’s blessings to everyone that I’ve had to please to cross paths with through this group!
Thank you all,

I was fairly uninspired for this Q. I’ll be honest I’ve been feeling pretty tired, beat down, and drained for the past several weeks (possibly months). Seems just general busyness in all areas of life. I’m sure I’m not alone in this. As men (maybe as humans) we tend to over-work, over-commit, under-pray, under-rest, and under-sleep. I encourage you to keep putting others first, never tire of doing good, continue to work hard for God, and push through… but also do not forget to rest/recover. We cannot serve others if we are too tired to live.
In that light, a song got stuck in my head during the last Murph as the rounds seemed to never end. It crept into my mind and has been hanging in there since: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lKdHXfpsFQ
