Theme Inspiration = Today’s workout was inspired by the new Netflix doc, “14 Peaks”. In this documentary, Nirmal “Nims” Purja, breaks the speed record for climbing all 14 8,000m peaks. Previous record was around 8 years… Nims and his team did it in 6 months. “Giving up is not in the blood, it’s not in the blood!”

Naked-Man Moleskin:

My dudes!

What a beautiful morning to climb the hill! You should be proud of yourself – that was tough. Keep that quote in your minds today and when it gets tough, that giving up isn’t who you are. It’s not in your DNA as the leaders you are. Grateful for each of you. I pray Jesus continues to reveal more of His grace, mercy, love, and kingship in our lives.


Until next time,
