Welcomed in our FNG (Kyle Bruton) for the workout. It was great to see us get to double figures this morning. The mumble started off with the motivator making more than one appearance in the workout. Underestimated the burpee mile and the amount of suckness that came along with it. We made sure to mention Pew pew and his family- hope all is well. Great overall workout this morning that included NO stairs.

3rd F Thought for the day.

Here is a thought for the day: listening to a series of sermons from Alistair Begg about David vs Goliath, the comment from David that caught my attention the most so far was this, in response to Goliath’s first threat to give David’s flesh to the beast and the birds. David said, “You come to me with a sword and with a spear and with a javelin, but I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. 46 This day the Lord will deliver you into my hand, and I will strike you down and cut off your head. And I will give the dead bodies of the host of the Philistines this day to the birds of the air and to the wild beasts of the earth, that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel, 47 and that all this assembly may know that the Lord saves not with sword and spear. For the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give you into our hand. They say that David was no more than 16 years old. To say “the lord will deliver you into my hand and I will CUT OFF YOUR HEAD. . .” Two things struck me. 1. David, with the balls to go head to head with Goliath with the “trash talk,” and 2 the faith that he had that Goliath had to be put down not for the sake of the Israelites but for the sake of God. It was GOD that David was defending not himself. And the fortitude to stand up to the world knowing who is God was is amazing coming from a teenager. It was a “no-brainer” for David to do what he did for the sake of not letting foolish people defile his God.

I hope that we are able to pass our values to our children in a way that has them so deeply rooted in who they are and who the belong to.

Moleskin:

Joined brothers nationwide to honor Lt. Michael Murphy and all of our other fallen American heroes. PAX employed several strategies for breaking down the running and exercises. All were difficult but looked like straight through (mile, exercises, mile) was the hardest. Imagine doing that with a 20 lb. weight vest and in the sandbox in Afghanistan. The pullups were modified many different ways – t-claps to Piper for completing all pullups with no modifications. We had a visit from Gas Man on patrol but missed out on seeing him put down about 3 full plates of food at coffeeteria. Great to have double digit PAX again and let’s keep accelerating. Last year for the Murph we had 5 and this year 10. Let’s double our number again for next year. Get out there and EH! GIA!

Moleskin:

Woke up to pouring rain and 7 PAX sacked up to brave the elements while others sacked down into the fartsack. Maestro arrived on time so no Maestro Lap was called for. Instead of Daisy planned beatdown a pinch hit Q for cards in the shelter was agreed upon. Started with very brief warmup then race to the shelter to finish the warmup. Maestro selected to cut the deck so everything that followed was his responsibility. A big thanks to Pew Pew and Daisy for knowing all the exercises and raising the level of difficulty by quite a bit. Plenty of “jacking” done today – between that and the burpees and squat thrusts a pretty good time.

Solid morning temperatures almost brought out double digits. One solution was to possibly never put burp back mountain in the PB: Noted. There was possible talk of renaming monkey humpers to wapners during the ring of fire. The caterpillar was not well liked as I forgot my phone at the starting line and I wasn’t just going to “walk” back for it. Adding the new prisoner Indian run seemed like it was well hated by all= a good burn. Overall a good workout today.

Moleskin:

Needed to give the legs a rest after Crabby PO’s Wednesday leg beat down, so what better way than a block party. YHC had planned a tire and block party for 10 or more but too many fartsackers and travelers, so some modifications were required. Decided on carrying 6 blocks among 4 PAX per team to allow for trading off of the farmer carries. Suck factor high for distance block carrying followed by Captain Insane-Os – arms will definitely be feeling it later. Got bad enough that PAX came up with alternative ways to carry the blocks. Kotter award for the day goes to Tiptoe – welcome back and see you again on Monday! There are several other Kotters out there that we need to EH back into the circle.

Very happy that we weren’t soaked in pouring rain this morning. We were hoping for several others to show but we suspect the threat of heavy rain at 40 degrees was a factor. Since we didn’t have any FNGs we (YHC) decided that a Motivator from 12 would be acceptable. I left the experience proud to have done it, but will probably stick with 10 as the extra time spent could be bette spent on smoking ourselves on other things. Indeed, my arms are smoldering after the 45s. Wish we could have had a third round. The six minutes of Mary seemed to fly by with the holds. Pleasure to lead today.
