COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Sacrifice is key in leadership. The best leaders have always been servant leaders. A great leader will put others in front of himself to lift those up around him, they do not need the glory. In my professional life i have see both kinds of leaders and the leaders that have put themselves first failed. The only way a team can over come challenges is with strong leadership. DORA’s are a great example of sacrifice in leadership. Your brother is reliant on you to not stop moving even when you’re tired. We have to sacrifice ourselves for the pax and our brothers.
MOLESKIN:
Keep Drifter in your thoughts as he goes through the moving process.

The Q was late today, because i allowed the fartsack to trick me into thinking i had 5 more min. Because of that i was rushing and left my phone at home. Impossible to run a musical DORA without music so Q had to drive back home to find his phone. I appreciate Drifter picking up for the Q’s slacking and took the pax through the warm up.
ANNOUNCEMENTS:

SSH x20 IC
Windmills x10 IC
Cherry Pickers x8 IC
Mosey over to the track
THA-THANG:
We did a figure eight on the track. Starting about halfway down one of the straight sides you burpee broad jump about halfway across the field. Run to the cone on the other side and go halfway around the track doing the exercises at each cone (see below). When you get back to the starting point, bear crawl about halfway across the field and run the other half of the track to start again (making a figure eight!). Rinse and repeat for time.

  • Cone #1 – 30 Ankle Touches (2 Count)
  • Cone #2 – 20 Squats

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Self Discipline has been on my mind a lot lately. I listened to the audio book Atomic Habits by James Clear recently and he talked about changing your identity. One example for me is that I want to complete two Motus triathlons this summer. My goal should not be to finish the triathlons, but to become a triathlete. When you change your identity, it changes how you do things. Now when I go to do something unhealthy, I think about whether or not a triathlete would do that. Because I am a triathlete and a triathlete wouldn’t do whatever it is I want to do, I don’t do it. This works no matter what your goal is. Want to quit smoking? Identify as a non-smoker. A non-smoker doesn’t smoke and that’s what you are, so you don’t smoke. Want to run a marathon? Then identify as a runner and do what runners do. So far it seems to be working for me!
MOLESKIN:
Today is Good Friday. Try to take some time to think about what that means to you. Happy Easter!
ANNOUNCEMENTS:
See the service opportunities channel in slack. If we have enough interest maybe even make one for Blount County? Let’s continue being HIMs outside of the gloom.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

Spring signs (blooming flowers,  greening trees, growing grass) are beautiful examples of a living creatures accepting a power (the Sun) that is outside themselves. They don’t work for it.
    In the same way, because of Christ’s death and rising to life again (what we celebrate this weekend at Easter!) God offers us power/salvation over SIN and DEATH, a darkness much worse than winter. All we must do is trust him for it and receive it through faith

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Love my time here in Alcoa F3.  It has been over 3 years of hot, snowy, frigid, downpours and few perfect temp days of hard workouts but I loved every minute of it.  Going to miss the amazing history lessons from Hammy, trying to keep up with Snorkel, Veep’s odd funnel stories, beer rucks, heart felt messages from Drifter, carrying bowling balls, turkeys, and swords around like it’s normal, dressing up as Mario with Snorkel as Luigi, Waxjob Hill, The Educator, Mt. Crumpet, Hellbender Bend,  and I am going to miss all the encouraging words by each and every member that passed my way.  See you all in the gloom some day soon.
