Always 70 and Sunny
Always 70 and Sunny

Best $1 I Ever Spent


13 warriors rose to greet the dawn of a new day.  As expected, the temperature was 70 and sunny.  According to legend, it went a little something like this.

COP All IC: Hand Release Merkins (HRM) Flying Squirrel style.  When the hands are released, they go all the way out to the side.  IC X 10, right leg up IC X 8, left leg up IC

Flutter Kicks X 10

Mark Spitz (flutter kicks with arms extended) X 20

WWII Situps X 15

SSH X 10, SSH Right Leg Up X 10, SSH Left Leg Up X 10

Super Triple Check: Round 1 – One man runs loop in the parking lot, one man is in plank, the other is doing burpees.  Complete 75 burpees as a team. Round 2 – run, six inches, 100 team WWII SU.

BAR Crawl:  Partner UP.  One partner completes a loop around the church.  Other partner bear crawls the switcheroo.  Next round crawl bear.  Do this until one loop has been completed.

Merkinsville: Round 1 – 10 decline merkins, 10 dips, 10 incline merkins. Round 2 – Same as round one but with left leg up.  Round 3 – same as round 1 but with right leg up.

Numberama, namerama, YHC had the privilege of taking us out.

Moleskin: Way to bring it Mechanicsville.  These men have created something really special in DaVille.  Everytime I make the extended journey, I’m greatly rewarded.  Thanks for the effort and energy!  I left The Creek fully charged.

NMS: The title of the BB came from an interaction YHC had a few weeks ago.  After making a $1 donation into the bucket of a man standing on Forest Hill raising money for homeless veterans, he says to me “God bless you and let yourself be blessed.”  Growing up in Texas and having allergies, I have heard “God bless you” more times than I could count.  What struck me in that moment was “let yourself be blessed”.

I’m the luckiest guy on the planet and it’s a damn shame I don’t act like it every waking moment.  I think there are many reasons we don’t let ourselves be blessed and we get off the tracks a bit.  We may not think we are deserving or maybe it’s shame that’s holding us back. Whatever it is, letting yourself be blessed is a conscious choice you have to make. Maybe the bravest thing you could do today isn’t to hold your guard up, but to let it go.

  1. Sorry I had to miss this morning Hardywood. Been traveling all week for work and I had a last minute schedule change today. Looks like a solid beatdown. Looking forward to getting back in the swing of things next week.
