Pearls around the ‘lake’

THE SCENE: If it was February then 41 degrees would have felt great.  Since it was October, it did not.  Impressed by the two dog walkers in the rain and wind when I pulled in at 0515.  However, Soulja Boy and I had sole use of Aycock Park when the bell tolled 0530.
F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER:  Done as we warmed up rapidly chilling limbs.

Standard;     SSH’s x 30 IC, Michael Phelps x 10 IC, Deep stretching (legs/hammies) x 10 IC
Modified from the original plan of wheel spokes from out of the center of the park.  The center of the park was a lake.

2 PAX; Soulja Boy and Tomb Raider
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:   Self discipline

A reading from 1 Cor 9:24-27   specifically vs. 27: “No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.”

We struck a blow to our bodies this morning to deny self pleasure and self gratification.  A man who is not in control of his body is not right with other aspects of his life.  This is echoed in F3’s 1st quadrant ‘the Get Right’.  The apostle Paul encourages us here to run the race as to win the prize.  We cannot win the prize without training without disciplining our bodies.

A great morning to be shoulder to shoulder with a brother.  Not much mumblechatter as we were serious and the sprints were a killer.  It was a great opportunity to learn more about Soulja boy and his family as we cooled down in the Gazebo.  Prayers requested to be Jesus to the jackasses in our offices.  Prayers for Carly’s back surgery recovery and Jacob’s health, joy, and his role in eternity.
