15 Men man the trip from fart sack to gloom including one FNG, McKinley Lewis. Great to have you for your second gloom post . Pax was promised a Ruck/Sandy Compliant workout for those headed to Jax, this is exactly what went down, with a “Light” 2 mile ruck/sandy travel. Some with black beanies on and a safe on various pax shoulders throughout the 50 minutes…this sure helped the F3 name!
2 mile Ruck/Sand run with “The Safe” coupon!
1st Stop…50 Squats
2nd Stop-Whole Foods Parking lot
200 yard Bear Crawl with 30 merkins (with ruck)
3rd Stop… 100 yard Buddy Carry up hill (Terrace Street) with Ruck and Sandy on… (Modified Sprint up)
4th Stop—5 min abs (feet and heels never touched ground)
50 Scissors, 30 V ups, 50 3-12 inches…more stuff….then 10 per leg, Toe Taps…(old school P-90X)
COT: Pas is well. Flu season, prayers for all those affected. Continued prayers for Peter Pans Daughter and their family. We pray for her FULL recovery. Prayers for all the crew headed to Jax this weekend for the Ruck Challenge. Sasquatch prays for his daughter as she recently changed schools and is hopeful the adjustment is smooth. All those running the Tally Marathon and Half, keep in your prayers (Shooter, Speedo and Spartan?…ha). Prayers for Mr Moms mother as well. He also will be sending details on his “Gladiator Challenge” soon he is putting on.
*We discussed the importance of helping others. The main focus of the gloom this morning. The pax got a small taste with the 35 lb safe that was passed off to one another, while everyone had additional weight. The awkwardness of that coupled with the additional weight was just a small reminder, “Help Others”! Left pax with these words from Luke 10, very powerful..as we all have been in this situation and failed the test…next time…don’t fail.
A jewish man was traveling on a trip from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he was attacked by bandits. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him up, and left him half dead beside the road. By chance a priest came along. But when he saw the man lying there, he crossed to the other side of the road and passed him by. (NLT) ( Luke 10:30-31 )
When you see someone in need, do you secretly pout and groan inside? Being a Christian we are responsible to help others. However, sometimes we turn the other way and cross to the other side of the road. A lot of times we just don’t want to get involved, lose time, or hear a sob story. Be generous with your mercy.
