One year ago June 7, 2017 happy on the outside, but frustrated with my appearance. Loving father and husband, but a short temper. The birth of my son (Ryan) coupled with some health scares and a great friend (Rhythm) recommendation, soon led me to you. F3Louisville.
Needless to say, I was certainly not the best version of myself, I wasn’t even close. Thanks to F3Louisville I am much closer, but still a long way to go. You all are those people in my life that raise my standerds, you continuiously remind me of my purpose, and hold me accountable to be the best ME i can be.
This is why I continue to passionately HL friends, strangers, and basically any man i come in contact with. We all need the things F3 provides.
Sense of purpose outside the family
Faith in something bigger than yourself
This list could go on forever………..
I just wanted to take a quick second and talk about how much each and everyone of you reading this means to me (and those not reading i love you too). This thing we have has made me better, as a man, husband, father, and member of this city. It’s given me the opportunity to make new friends and deepen the friendships I already had.
on to the workout day
I show up to the mutt with a sweet message from a favorite HIM (ToolTime). He couldn’t make the workout, but brought me a gift anyway. He and I discussed using mini coups for the workout today but turned out he had some family responsibilities pop up at the last minute. So rather than have me re write my weinke at the last minute. This HIM set his alarm extra early to deliver my gift. And he even spelled out Happy Day (not enough coups for the B). Thanks brother!

Last year I was a sad clown. Today I’m a HIM. Thanks to F3Louisville. All of you have played a key part in making me better. Thanks RedRoof for believing in F3, thanks Rhythm for the HL! Without the two of you specifically, I would still be a sad clown.
Til my next Q in 8 hours.
