At each tee perform a set number of burpees, bear crawl to basket, perform a Mary exercise as a group at the basket before heading to the next hole.
Hole 1: Burpee OYO 1, bear crawl (Beast Ridge is known to flood and it caused some problems in Hole 1. We got up from bear and tried to make it across the swamp as safely as possible.) LBC IC 14x
Hole 2: Burpee OYO 2, Duck Walk to basket, Flutter Kick IC 15x
Hole 3: Burpee OYO 3, (And The Count realized he has dropped his key somewhere between Hole 2 Basket and Hole 3 tee pad. Next exercise search for The Count’s car key. After some searching we were able to locate his key near the Hole 2 Basket)
Time was running low so we started to mosey back to the shovel flag with some stops on the way.

WOD: There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance – Ecclesiastes 3:1-4
This weekend I went to my parents in AL and had a lot stuff planned with my family and to catch up with old friends but as soon as I got to my parents home I found out we were attending a funeral on Saturday that changed all my plans. At the funeral it was nice being with loved ones and taking the time to show our respect. It gave me time to put things in prospective and to enjoy the moment. We tend to live life from one event to the next rarely taking time to reflect on what we just accomplished. Just know that there is a season for everything and that its ok to take time for yourself and family.
