8; C-Lo, Slicnut, Harry Caray, Billy Blanks, Money Bags, Meter Maid, Nature Boy (WHOO!) and O Positive (YHC).


*YHC shared some Spurgeon with the PAX; theme: suffering, strife

*Also read from Romans 5: Justification
>Romans 5:3
‘And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.’

*YHC encouraged men to be listen to the Podcast from 4/5 with Gus and YHC on ‘Lift Heavy. Run Long.’

**PAX prayers were lifted up.


This was one heckuva thorough beatdown.  High Intensity Interval Training with ample Running thrown in for funsies.  PAX were awfully grumpy bears when Burpees were called.  It was only 47 in all. Meter Maid was running fashionably late after 1st 15 Burpees were performed by PAX  in Warm-A-Rama and made up for his lost 15 upon his arrival-without being asked to.  That impressed the PAX and YHC.

>PAX are training for 4/7 Fairway 5K (including YHC and Backseat) as well as 1/2 Marathon coming up in May. 
>Brew Ruck coming: 4/28/18
