35 degrees, foggy, and very humid.  Some extra excitement was certainly in the air due to the Nomad visiting this morning for a beatdown.

The Thang

Round 1 (Let there be Light) 
PAX were instructed to complete exercises at every light pole as they worked toward the top – Merkins and Squats in Progression.  Mumblechatter certainly ensued.
1st – 1 Merkin & 1 Squat
2nd – 2 Merkins & 2 Squats
3rd – 3 Merkins & 3 Squats
YHC planned for a rinse and repeat routine until we reached the top; however, an audible was needed due to time constraints.  The PAX stopped at the 25th light pole for Round 2.

In Genesis, the Lord speaks of our World’s light and how it came to be.  During mumblechatter, a PAX expressed the idea for “Let there be Light” or Genesis 1:1 as our workout title today.  YHC looked up shortly after and witnessed the absolutely beautiful site that is the morning sun rising and creating the gorgeous mix of colors across the sky.  All this, simply reminds us of the special passage that is Philippians 4:13.  “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength”.  God is blessing the men of F3 by expecting us all to lead by striving for the light in front of us, but with leadership, we are giving difficult situations, trials, and tribulations; however, we MUST always revert back to Philippians, find joy in the opportunity, realize no hill is to high, and we will ALWAYS have UNFAILING strength through Christ.
