A Note from the Nant'an: 

First and foremost, wishing you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving. F3 Naperville has seen another summer, another fall come and go. Gone are the warm mornings with sunshine on your face. Still, spend a moment to reflect on the past five months and you'll recall the golf outing, convergences, the F3NF 5K, F324, GrowRucks, Ragnars & Spartans, and multiple 2nd and 3rd F events, some of which are highlighted below. Bonds were forged through all of these events and those bonds will be needed as we continue to accelerate forward.

Together, we head into the cold, dark mornings of the gloom. Most bundled head to toe in an attempt to make it a little less "uncomfortable." Whether it's your fifth winter or your first, the gloom will continue to challenge you and most certainly be uncomfortable. Hundreds of HIMs will rely on bonds forged over the past four years as they continue to take the daily red pill through heat or cold, rain, snow, or shine.

The months ahead will continue to present an opportunity to accelerate or decelerate as there is no static plateau. These opportunities often come in the form of what may appear to be insignificant choices in the moment, but are actually opportunities for movement. Movement to invigorate male community leadership in others by your actions and your words, spoken and written. Movement to advantage, to achieve the mission. Remember that only others can hold you accountable; live missional, mind your jester, and be a sad clown bounty hunter!

Looking Back

Highlights from the 2021 late Summer and early Fall seasons in the gloom: 

F3 Naperville Foundation 5K

The 3rd annual F3 Naperville Foundation’s 5K Race/Walk was a tremendous success! Thank you to all the runners, walkers, sponsors, and spectators who came out in full force to make this event so special. New records were set with 431 registrations and $30,880 raised in support of the Foundation! Read and see more pictures here.

Four Year Convergence

100+ PAX came together to celebrate four years of F3 Naperville. Teams competed for high scores across five stations, and got after some individual competitions as well. We concluded by recognizing several men for their contributions to the program and commitment to the principles of F3. Read and see more pictures here.

F324 2021

On Saturday, Oct. 23 we hosted our 2nd annual F324 at Dark Tower. We hosted 24 workouts for 24 consecutive hours, with nearly $4,000 raised in support of the F3 Naperville Foundation. This year's edition had something for everyone, including options for the whole family! T-Claps to Chazz, Aladdin, Baby Hands, Sam Walton, Riunite and Wine in a Box (pictured above) for running the gamut and completing all 24 workouts! Check out some of the session highlights below:

SLT Succession: New Commz & 3rdF Qs

In October and November respectively, Tonka passed the Commz Q megaphone to Snoop-a-Loop and Rhonda Rousey handed the 3rdF Q torch to Toadstool. Please join us in thanking Tonka for his multiple tours of duty on the SLT, and Ronda for meaningfully accelerating our 3rd F efforts. Check out your entire SLT on the web here

Ragnar 2022 - The Bourbon Chase
Lexington, Kentucky, October 2022

We have several teams forming for the Ragnar 2022 Bourbon Chase event, taking place in 'late October' 2022 in Lexington, KY. Check out the RAGNAR SIGN UP tab on the Q sheet to list your interest and get on a team. Reach out to TPS Report if you have any questions.

New 2ndF Programming Coming Your Way

We are heading into 2022 thinking about new ways to accelerate our 2ndF program. If you haven't done so, please fill out this quick survey to rank your preference on potential activities. TIA!

Last but not least: GET OUT AND LEAD

The price of admission of F3 is taking on the leadership of a workout - TIME TO Q. This is where we apply the learnings of accelerating. If you haven't yet signed up to Q, and you're looking to post up your VQ (Virgin Q) - get in touch with a PAX who you see lead regularly. Better yet, sign up for Aladdin's King Builder / Q-School sessions. 

Don't get up for easy!

Happy Thanksgiving,


Baby Hands, Nant'an
Goldberg, Weasel Shaker
Wet Wipe, 1stF Q
Rusty, 2ndF Q
Toadstool, 3rdF Q
Flush, Growth Q
Snoop-a-Loop, Commz Q
