Pax split up into four teams. Each team traveled to a corner 50 yards from the center and did reps until every member of the group completed them or the group total equivalent. Completing the reps, the whole team ran back to the middle and got into a plank. First team to get all members back and in a plank won the opportunity to continue to hold plank while the rest of the teams did 5 burpees.

YHC discussed what an HC really means: a commitment to getting better for yourself, your M, your 2.0, your brothers in the gloom, and your community. Matthew 7:28-29 talks about how Jesus spoke with authority in a way that was recognizable by the masses. They witnessed him speaking just as they had witnessed others but when he spoke, it rang true because they could tell he wasn’t just telling them how to act, he was showing them who he was. It’s a difficult distinction to draw, but when you are EHing that potential FNG, they can sense your commitment in the gloom.
Fresh mown grass and a heavy coat of dew made for a delightful beatdown on the lawn.

“What if I did pickle pointers last night?”
“Fine, you can do three less.”
