The Thang

After warmup, moseyed over to The Commons and grabbed some coupons to do some All About the Benjamins! 25 curls, 25 walking lunges, 25 squats, 25 walking lunges, 25 overhead press, 25 walking lunges, 25 mountain climbers, 25 walking lunges. Following that, moseyed over to the base of Holy Hill where, miraculously, cones were already in place all the way up the Hill! The Hill was painfully climbed by 10’s; 10 burpees followed by a bear crawl, 10 merkins followed by walking lunges, 10 squats followed by bernie up the steepest part, 10 Bonnie Blairs followed by a jog to the last cones. No relief at the top of the hill as that is where the Bataan Death March began. Basically an Indian Run with the last PAX doing 3 burpees and running to catch up to the group and shoulder tapping the last PAX who then stops for his burpees. The first PAX then then runs to the front of the line and the pain continues, all the way around the church parking lot. Enough room for everyone to have a turn. Moseyed back down Holy Hill and did half a cycle of Benjamins and then moseyed back to starting point for some Mary. Fun fun fun!


The Word of the day was from the lyrics of Tobymac in the song “Speak Life”. The words we use on ourselves and with others greatly matter. We have enormous power to encourage and uplift those around us with our words. Easy to do and when done with God’s guidance, very effective. Ask God each day who you can help or say something encouraging to and He will not disappoint! Peace out.
