Doublin’ Down on the Track
What do you do when you get an 11 in Blackjack? You double down!
Double 11s. Starting with 10 burpees on the home side and visitor side, 1 Captain Thor in each end zone. Mosey in between. Working toward 1 burpee and 10 Captain Thors. We did not get there.
3 Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 4 We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.
5 For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly also be united with him in a resurrection like his. 6 For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin— 7 because anyone who has died has been set free from sin.
8 Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. 9 For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him.
Death no longer has mastery over him! Or us as we were baptized into Christ Jesus!
Great way to start off Holy Week as we prepare to celebrate the Resurrection.

The Legend of Bushwood Burrito
It was a warm Saturday morning as we arrived at the parking lot of #Reformation curious as to why Burrito had requested us to bring golf balls to his Q. Whittler was present only hoping the golf balls would be used to throw at Burrito. Alas, it was not to be.
“Hop in your car and follow me! I have a great idea for a workout!”
There was apprehension as we pulled into the Signal Mountain Golf and Country Club a few minutes after 7:00. What could he have in mind? We moseyed from the parking area over to the back nine. “We’ll start on the tee box of each hole and take turns throwing the golf balls, mosey to the golf ball and complete exercises when we get there!”
Hey, maybe this workout does have some promise.
It began innocently enough. A small group of High Impact Men on the golf course on a Saturday morning. What could go wrong? We each took our turns throwing the golf balls and moseying through the dew covered fairways and along the cart paths. Then we reached hole 16….
As we completed our burpees and American hammers there on the cart path and adjacent grass, a golf cart arrived at our location. Behind the wheel was the head greenskeeper. My memory of his face is that he may have been the greenskeeper, but he was red with anger.
“Guys, we just can’t be doing this. You can’t be all over the greens like this.”
Burrito replied confidently “but we have not been on the greens at all! We have stayed on the cart path!”
“Yes you have! There are footprints all over the greens!”
Burrito, knowing that the jig was up and he had been bested by the shoe prints in the morning dew, simply hung his head and dejectedly replied:
It was then that we knew we had to vacate the premises. However, there is no way to get off of the course until after the 17th tee box. We completed the mosey of shame up the cart path being followed by the red faced greenskeeper in his golf cart until we could cut through the tree line and finish up on Golf Drive.
The story would have a great ending, though, as Gusher opened the Wayside Presbyterian fellowship hall to us for a great coffeeteria so that we could commiserate about the morning’s workout led by Bushwood Burrito.
Get excited for Jorts at #Smackdown on Tuesday
