Attention F3 Princeton PAX!   

Saturday, June 22nd at 7 am will be the 1st Annual NJ F3 Convergence, titled the 1st Annual NJ F3 Convergence- Summer Solstice at the Jersey Shore, location tentative but looking like Avon by the Sea.  

I am requesting that we cancel all of our local Saturday workouts and get as MANY guys as possible to go down the shore. 

The plan is for 1.5 hour workout, (various Q’s from the different regions).

Coffeeteria will follow. 

Please SAVE The DATE!  

You could bring family and enjoy a day down the Jersey shore after the workout or come solo!

Blue Ridge Relay 2024 – 9/5 to 9/9

To all runner pax!
The one and only spectacular Blue Ridge Relay is back on this year and Lowe’s is recruiting team members for 9 man team. Maybe if there is a lot of interest and commitments plans can change to 12 man team, not sure.

There are spots available, regardless.
Dates: depart for VA Sept 5, return from NC Sept 9.

Please reach out to DC and myself.
If you have done this before – BRR is your race, if you have always thought about it but have not tried – it is an experience to remember!


Coffee Volunteer

It’s time to recruit a new coffee maestro :fondue:.  Any takers?


Downrange PAX

Posting at another F3 location is know as posting “downrange”. If you’re traveling, check out the #downrange channel on the F3Nation Slack for opportunities to meet up with brothers all around the world.

THIS as seen in the Downrange channel, 9:02 pm 4/16 and 7:56 am 4/17:

“I see dudes wearing F3 shirts and immediately we are all best of friends”
“There is nothing that can compare to running into someone wearing the shirt and knowing what kind of dude they are.”
“F3 Everywhere I run these days…Great way to start a 10K.”

In what other organization/community can I this be said?
We continue strongly to create bonds of brotherhood in our AOs and regions…and these bonds extend beyond that.

In New Jersey, the men get excited and look forward to region anniversary workouts and fellowship to celebrate the impact that we are having in our personal lives, in our families, in our communities, and in our state.
