THE SCENE: Clear, calm, and cold (to me).
F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER
Side-straddle hops, little baby arm circles, mosey to find a nice hill.
5 workouts at the bottom of the hill, each increase by 10 reps, with the first being 10. Do one exerceise, then run the hill. Then do second exercise and so on. The group does the exercise together. Once the first HIM completes the exercise, the whole group stops and all run up hill doing a backwards Indian run (front man peels off and runs to the back). This didn’t really work as I envisioned so we modified the and paired up. The rest of the workout was completed with partners. The exercises were:
- 10 burpees
- 20 Bobby Hurley’s
- 30 Mountain Climbers (4 ct)
- 40 Iron Mikes (single ct)
- 50 little baby crunches
cherry pickers until time

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
My son got on a kick where he wanted to read the same book every night. He kept picking a book about leadership (which is odd for a 4 year old..) so I thought I’d share what I’ve learned by reading it every night for 2 weeks.
The little train was carrying all these wonderful things to the good little boys and girls on the other side of the mountain. She puffed along merrily. Then all of a sudden she stopped with a jerk. She simply could not go on another inch. She tried and she tried but her wheels would not turn.
Here comes a shiny new engine said the funny little clown who jumped out of the train. Let us ask him to help us. So all of the dolls and toys cried out together.
A good leader will rally those around him to work in unity.
Please shiny the engine won’t you pull our train over the mountain? Our engine has broken down and the boys and girls on the other side won’t have any toys to play with or good food to eat unless you help us.
A good leader communicates the purpose of a mission. They “why” behind the work.
The little train and all the dolls and toys were very sad. Cheer up cried the little toy clown. The freight engine is not the only one in the world. Here comes another. He looks very old and tired but a train is a little perhaps he can help us.
A good leader is an encourager and should have a constant supply of optimism.
A good leader can recognize potential in others even when they may not recognize it within themselves. Though one engine was old and another small, the clown saw potential in them.
She tugged and pulled and pulled and tugged and slowly, slowly, slowly they started off. The toy clown jumped aboard and all the dolls and the toy animals began to smile and cheer.
The clown was the last to get back on the train. A good leader put others first.
The book is named after the engine that came into the story the last few pages of the book but the clown was there the whole time and who truly led them over the mountain.
Happy to have Moses back!!! Indian runs aren’t the best up long hills.
