Losing is Winning

THE SCENE: 34˚ felt like 28˚ Crisp, clear Gloom. Sonic showed up at tail end of WoR so we fit a few more SSH to get him in the right mood.


Arm Circles x 20 IC, Rev Arm Circles x 20 IC, Daisy Pickers x 20 IC, SSH x20 IC + 10 more for Sonic.


Bear Crawl 1-2-3-2-1
Partner up. P1 does exercises towards goal, while P2 Bear Crawls 10yd up slight incline and then 10yd back down. If finish before ALL IN, start over on the 100 Merkins until all in.

  • 100 Merkins
  • 200 LBCs
  • 300 Squats
  • 200 Lunges, 1 is 1
  • 100 SSH

A few of us got to enjoy some Reward Merkins.

“Losing is Winning”

Alabama recently lost to Clemson. Old Forest ‘lost’ to Levee in KotB. Losing stinks. Everybody wants to win.

Luke 9:23-25
Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will LOSE it, but whoever LOSES their life for me, will SAVE it. What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, and yet LOSE or forfeit their very self?”

If we LOSE our life (deny self), then we WIN (gain eternity and the victory that Jesus already won).


  • Boba Fett: quick recovery for daughter’s jaw surgery
  • Third Wheel: knee issues, healing
  • Photoshop’s brother Mike had cyst removed, quick and good recovery. Also for Mike to join F3 in NC where he lives to help improve his health (physical and spiritual).

Grimace and Sonic are beasts on Merkins and LBCs, but Bear Crawls are truly the Great Equalizer, as everybody struggled with those.

Equinox Challenge: get it.
