Mosey to the Pee Rock pile to pick out your gift – CMU-ish pee rock
Great… Now you have to pretend you love it. Hold it proudly above your head for a lap around the parking lot!
Drop this one in a parking spot, head over and grab 2 hand-size pee rocks. Drop in adjacent spot
Pick up the CMU-size pee rock, move about 20 yards away and form 2 single-file lines.
Now it’s time to wait in line to exchange your gift.
To pass the time waiting in line, do an exercise. Start with curls.
First man in each line runs to the service desk to exchange CMU-size for 2 hand-size and a new exercise.
He heads to the back of the line and the next PAX makes the exchange. When 2-rocks gets back to the front, run down and switch to 1-rock and a new exercise:
|One Rock||Two Rocks|
|Fwd Shoulder Raise||Side Raise|
|Tricep Extension||Raise the Roof|
|Goblet Squat||Bent Over Side Raise|
Standing in line always takes longer than you think… No time for Mary this morning!
COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA
14 PAX, no FNGs
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
We exchanged gifts with my in-laws on Christmas Eve night. They headed home, and then the next morning we found the gift cards that we’d given them sitting on the side table where they had left them. It made me think about the fact that just being offered a gift isn’t everything. You have to reach out and take it, a conscious act of receiving. Some of God’s gifts we just get (and often take for granted), no acknowledgement or recognition required. A sunrise, our next breath, a baby’s laugh… But His greatest gift requires an act of receiving or it just sits there like my in-laws’ gift cards. Theirs for the taking, yet unused. Be sure you’re not leaving God’s greatest gift for you sitting on the table.
That circuit took much longer than I expected… I was thinking we’d run through it twice, then maybe I’d need to fill the time with some 7’s or something… Not so! Made it about 97% through once before we ran out of time.
Gonna be feeling a tingle in the fingertips all morning from the freezing pee rocks!
Great to be out this morning with my F3 brothers working off some of that goo! Coffeeteria was a good unwind as well.
