Sharpening the Sword


Five men gathered in the Gloom for a 0645 PreGame under Cecil that illuminated an otherwise overcast morning. Having added the Sword of God’s Word to our spiritual armor, the Pax re-grouped in the Pouncey Tract parking lot eager to boost their physical condition, loosely (very, and unordered) as follows:


X25 SSHs
X10 Eight-County Body Builders Pan Pax
X25 DQs
X25 APDs

Dips and KB Pullovers Tabata-style
Pressups and KB Halos Tabata-style
Merkins/CDDs and KB Standing Rows Tabata-style
X25 CDDs

Sideline to Sideline Kettlebell medley:

– KB carries (single, double, and triple), including suitcase, rack, waiter, and 360s
– Karaokes, shuffles, backwards, high skips, bounds, lunges, crab walks, bear crawls, combat crawls, sprints, etc., with mid-route flavorings of merkins, burpees, forward rolls, etc.
– Planks


Counterama and Namerama

Announcements – 3rd F Armor of God PreGame next week — Power of Prayer (part 8 of 8) — Attila double-dipper Q for 0645 PreGame and 0700 GridIron.

Thanksgiving spoken and gratitude expressed; concerns shared.

Closing prayer by YHC – X365 Thanksgiving, travel blessings, medical procedures, and Matt’s family


Some GridIroners were traveling and a couple more regulars are on injured reserved. All were missed.

Virgin posting of Cecil’s son-in-law visiting for Thanksgiving. No surprise that the former college varsity tennis player and soccer player – 26 years the junior of the youngest posting Pax – smoothly executed this morning’s offerings. The material for the naming was ever so rich, but alas the Pax settled on one of many fitting nom de guerres. A warm welcome to DarkHorse – we look forward to your next visit north.

Cecil’s suggestion of adding forward rolls to the Sideline to Sideline KB Medley was not appreciated, at least not by YHC who now counts vertigo among his burgeoning maladies. ChumBucket’s inclusion of Burpees in same appears to have achieved more widespread grievance. Credit to Johnsonville for not seeking refuge in GridIron’s 5-Star facilities and, instead, pushing the pace.

In sum, a good morning begun with solid 3rd F (query: how does God’s Word shape you and how are you edified by it?) and capped with a fine 2nd F Coffeeteria.

For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Hebrews 4:12 (NKJV)
