Basically told the same story I told on The Battery last week on Q (sorry if you heard it twice). Essentially, as leaders in our community and leaders among men, we need to be willing to stick our neck out for unpopular opinions, even if it means doing so alone. When something is unethical, unjust, or just flat out feels wrong, don’t stand by idly. Be a leader! We live in a society where it is easier to go with the flow to keep up our appearances or social states. Don’t be afraid to stand out in a crowd, it is what we are called to do.


If anyone knows a good independent auditor…..Mandela amongst other PAX disagreed with the apps timer of 50 seconds on/10 seconds on. Said it was more like 70 seconds on/3 seconds off. Obviously, the only way to resolve this is an audit.

Kraken burpees were not a fan favorite….but neither were burpees….but neither were (non-hill) hill runs….PAX didn’t like Q today is ultimately where this sentence ends.

Apparently, Free Bird runs hills for fun, so he turned it into a race. Everyone else was fine with him winning first place on the way up! There was no medal ceremony, however.

Choose your 10-count PAX wisely, it could mean the difference between getting a full 10 seconds or more versus 3 seconds to count down from 10 as fast as possible.
