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.

Battle buddies run in opposite direction around the loop. Once you reach each other, give each other 5 reps of whatever exercise (too many bodybuilders). If person with Joker passes you, gets to give 5 reps of anything to whoever he passes. Once member of PAX with Joker reaches cone, leave face up so that next person who passes can pick it up and become Joker for the loop. Just keep running.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
My favorite movie growing up was Sandlot. One of my favorite scenes from the movie was when the ghost of Babe Ruth was talking to Benny “the Jet” Rodriguez. Babe gives him some words of advice that I think we could all use in our lives.

“Let me tell you something kid, everybody gets one chance to do something great. Most people never take the chance, either ’cause they’re too scared, or because they don’t recognize it when it spits on their shoes. This is your big chance, and you shouldn’t let it go by…”

“Remember, kid, there’s heroes and there’s legends. Heroes get remembered, but legends never die. Follow your heart, kid, and you’ll never go wrong.”

Don’t be afraid to take a chance and go with your gut when you feel like you need to make a decision. As Christians, let the Holy Spirit work within you and lead you when necessary. Make the leap when you feel the push no matter how uncomfortable or painful it may be. Follow your heart.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”

Embrace the challenge everyday to not shy away from the difficult things in life.
