The Thang:

We moved from one lamppost to the next around Sharon Spring Park.  At each one, we stopped to do exercises.  The count was 5-7-9-11-9-7-5, totaling 53 reps of each exercise.  We started at the first lamp post and did 5 burpees, moved to the next lamp post and did 7 burpees, moved to the next lamp post and did 9 burpees, etc. The mode of transportation was an audible by the PAX and included karaoke, wheel barrow, broad jumps, bear crawls, crab walks, etc. After completing the 53 burpees (across 7 lamp posts), we moved to alpha count Bonnie Blairs.  After completing Bonnie Blairs, we moved to Diamond Merkins and due to time, we were only able to get through the 9 Diamond Merkins before we ran back to the flag. As an aside, if time had permitted, we would have moved on to cadence-count Freddie Mercuries.


A few concerns were raised and we will continue to put Lyla, Cindy and Snowman's MIL in our prayers.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

"This Too Shall Pass" is not only a reminder to keep going when things aren't going well, but also a friendly reminder to take inventory when things are going well and enjoy those times and be grateful.  When you are going through those tough/dark times, remember you don't need to go through them alone; when you are in the time of life where things are going well, make sure you are extending your hand to help those in need.
