Gentlemen, the date for the Dog Pound’s CSAUP is being moved to Saturday, August 21. 2ish hours of a boot camp workout, followed by a feast of biscuits and gravy. CSAUPs are fun and challenging, and a great way to meet other F3 men from around Knoxville. We will be working in TEAMS of 3 (you’ll be added to a team if you are by yourself). Sign up here…

Run/Train to Win!!!!
1 Corinthians 9:24-27
Don’t you realize that in a race everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize? So run to win! All athletes are disciplined in their training. They do it to win a prize that will fade away, but we do it for an eternal prize. So I run with purpose in every step. I am not just shadowboxing. I discipline my body like an athlete, training it to do what it should. Otherwise, I fear that after preaching to others I myself might be disqualified.
