The fifth group ran around the corners until they ended at run.  Each group subsequently ran a lap and stopped at the next station (#1 ran around and stopped at 2, 2 ran around and stopped at 3, etc.).  This continued until all groups were back to the start point

At this point, our group went from 7 to 8 as Back Pew finally found us.

As odd as it sounds, I had a dream Sunday night where Prosciutto was speaking to me about how to Q.  He kept repeating words like “Just do what works for you” or “Just do what’s right for you”.  I have been thinking about this for two solid days, trying to tie in what this meant for me.  I take it to mean that we can’t worry about conforming to societal standards, we must do what’s right for us and what works for us (and by us I mean our family, friends, co-workers, etc.).  This is not meant to be selfish or self-serving in any way.  The reality is that what works for one person or group may not work for another.  Over the last several years, my family and I have been trying to figure out what’s right for us.  Our decisions haven’t always been the most popular  but we truly believe that God presented us with certain situations and opportunities because it was what was right for us at the time.  It’s not for everyone, but it was what worked for us.  I encourage everyone to seek out what’s best for them.  Don’t conform, do something because you believe it’s the right thing to do.  


Lots of Alabama/Auburn jokes exchanged during the MC.

We joked at the beginning about finding Peanuts half way through the workout.  Turns out, we found Back Pew half way through the workout.

Name substitutions were popular (i.e. Slutter kicks = Auburn cheerleader, Forward Fold = Auburn fans, Butt kickers = Alabama)
