COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
I apologize, I thought it was way later than it was and didn’t want to hold anyone up. But it is the truth! You men encourage me everyday and ensure that I stay humble! Thank you.
MOLESKIN:
Majority of the PAX showed up early, Blue Cross and Proton showed us they could have started late if they wanted to. Sparky piped up later on GroupMe to eradicate ANY DOUBT that each man that showed up today, is an absolute HIM. It’s hard not to compare where we are, against where other people are. We have to remember that oftentimes, we are comparing our beginning to someone else’s middle. Or our middle to someone else’s end. We’re all in different seasons and it’s important to embrace where we are today and keep pushing to better ourselves. 

No man left behind, no man left the same.

TTTP This Saturday – forgot to plug this too!!

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
While traveling yesterday I heard a man say on The Message radio station “We look for God in the destination but He is often found in the detour.” Many of us have had detours this year that have affected us physically, emotionally, spiritually, financially, at work, at home etc and we don’t understand why things aren’t going the way we planned and wonder where God is.

We are looking to Him and for Him in the end and are not looking to understand His meaning and plan for us in the midst of our detour. So if you are like Daniel in the Lion’s Den, Moses by the Burning Bush or even like Jonah in the belly of the whale. Seek God and look for Him and know that He is with you and He has a plan for you that might not be what you expected and your circumstances don’t make sense but know that you are right where He wants you. He is with you and will lead you out.  It’s just a detour.

MOLESKIN:

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Following Christ requires action from us according to new standards, developing new habits, and a conscious change of our thinking. Christian maturity is not shown through our beliefs or declarations, but through our behavior and personality. Results are the products of our actions! To grow spiritually, we need to change our priorities and thinking. To be more like Christ, you need to think according to His standards.
MOLESKIN:
It is so good to see members of the pax getting better physically. Seeing where they have improved and become faster, stronger and have more stamina.
ANNOUNCEMENTS:
Prayers for Lady Junk and the Junk family.

Man Down

THE SCENE: Balmy 72 degrees
F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER
WARM-O-RAMA:

  • 20 x Imperial Walker IC
  • 15 x Tempo Merkin IC
  • 20 x American Hammer (4ct.) IC
  • 20 x Overhead Clamp IC (except I-Beam, who was deliberately out of cadence)

THA-THANG:
PAX counted off 1-4 and split into groups of 4 people each. One PAX from each group was designated “injured” and had to be carried by the remaining three. PAX rotate as needed while we headed for the Pav-A-Lon. We paused for 20 Iron Mikes (4 ct. OYO) while some of the folks rested their shoulders.

Once at the Pav-A-Lon, each PAX drew two cards from the card. The number designated the rep count and the suit designated the exercise as follows:

  • Hearts = Pull-ups
  • Clubs = Burpees
  • Spades = Dips
  • Diamonds = Diamond Merkins

Face cards = 10 and Aces = 11.

Between rounds PAX moseyed to the top of the hill and bear crawled back down.

We broke back into groups and carried our injured teammates back to the AO.

MARY:
We cashed out with two rounds of ATMs!

COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA
Two FNGs today – good work guys!
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
I shared a story with the PAX of a college senior that was seeking guidance because she was stressed about decisions others were making for her. We talked about the importance of remembering that we are grown-ups that are not only capable of, but responsible for, our own decisions. It’s easy to get complacent and let others lead, but there comes a time when you need to step up and do your own thing.
MOLESKIN:
TAP to the Junk clan – we missed you out there today, brother!
ANNOUNCEMENTS:
Truckin’ to the Pound coming up in September.

COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

Lean hard on your spouse or friend or family because when you fall down its important to have that strong, braided cord to pull you back up. When we see couples weathering through difficult times and keeping their focus on God, that should be a reminder to us about the importance of drawing nearer to our spouse and showing them grace.

MOLESKIN:
Great workout today, partners pushed each other hard and this ended up being a really tough one
