THE SCENE: Felt like South Beach but at least there was no lightning, thunder, or downpours.

Mosey to Upper Lot by Church at Columns for Battle Buddy Relay (keep your distance though):
HIM 1 wall sits at columns while doing baby arm circles (5 forward and 5 reverse and repeat) while HIM 2 runs as fast as possible to location about 40 yards away and returns; Upon return HIMs switch and HIM 2 holds wall sit/arm circles while HIM 1 runs to location and back; Complete 4 times for each HIM
Mosey toward High School for Four Corner Action (PAX split with half running counter-clockwise while other half went clockwise to help spread out – but had to “pay attention”):
First lap did 20 reps, 2nd lap 15 reps, and so on for 4 laps
Corner 1: Squat Jacks (single count)
Corner 2: Step Up/Jump Up (by Saint Patty)
Corner 3: Plank Jacks (single count)
Corner 4: Derkins (using the curb)
Faster runners headed to Saint Patty for some chips and dips while waiting on the 6 to roll up (merkins and dips along short wall)
Mosey around to Pavilion for some pushing and pulling; PAX spread out around picnic tables and worked through 50 incline merkins and 50 table rows (alternating 10 reps at a time).
Mosey over to Detention Hill for some character builders; 10 calf raises at the top; run to the bottom; 10 squats; get back up the hill however possible (impressed by a few that Bernied up). Repeated 3 or 4 times… but who’s counting? Guaranteed sweating across the PAX at this point for sure.
Mosey back to the AO
PAX finished up with unlimited sets of LBCs; Flutter Kicks; BBS; and Hello Dollies
Wrapped up the fun with a Howling Circle of Monkey Humpers; PAX all performed Monkey Humpers as each member took turns counting off 5 reps; Howling ensued about half-way around the circle.
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Encouraged the PAX through the workout to “pay attention”!
In Luke 17:11 a familiar story is captured where Jesus was teaching the disciples and noticed a group of 10 lepers nearby (socially and emotionally distanced). Jesus called to the lepers and healed them miraculously and sent them to the priest. The 10 were amazed and rejoiced as they ran away, but only 1 of them was “paying attention”. And to beat all he was a Samaritan (socially unacceptable to be associated with by any “good Jew” at that time). The Samaritan returned to Jesus and fell at His feet in worship and gave thanks for healing Him. Giving glory and honor to the Son of God and Savior. Only the Samaritan had the right perspective in the midst of his miraculous healing – not on what happened to him but Who had done it.
Encouraged the PAX to pay attention to the grace and mercy alive in our lives as HIMs (if we truly know Jesus as Lord and Savior) and respond with thankfulness and gratitude. We need to give Him glory for the great things He has done in each of our lives.
Prayer request for Goodwin (sp?) family who lost the dad (a pastor) in a driving accident – wife and 3 kids left behind; prayed for Willow the daughter Cheatsheet; and prayed for Baby Boomer’s daughter Riley who is having tonsils removed on Thursday.
Word of praise from Baby Boomer for those who prayed for his daughter Claire last week (had knee surgery on Friday) as everything went well.
