Adrenaline was pumping for VQ, can’t remember clearly, some combination of Michael Phelps, Arm Circles, and Daisy Pickers… I think.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

It’s easy to move along like everything is ok. Maybe we’re trying to convince ourselves that everything’s fine, or we’re trying to hide. Perhaps we think we might be a burden to others if we open up too much. However, we are part of a tremendous group of guys willing to lock shields and shoulder our burdens with us. Whatever it is, big or small, bringing it into the light can help loosen its grip on us.

Concluded with prayer.

MOLESKIN:

Remember to bring scuba gear.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

Snookie reminded everyone of the Anniversary Workout at The Mothership.
