MARY:
Some rounds of American Hammer led by a HIM while MUDPANTS stopped to switch the kettle bell to the other side with a coupon. With 15 seconds to go Cheesesteak said, what else? So 10 burpees were added to the tab.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Word of the Day: Perseverance. Perseverance means getting back up when you are down. Fighting through hard things, mentally, physically, spiritually. It means not giving up in serving your family, your community, your Creator. Many times we feel defeated, discouraged, disillusioned but we are called to persevere. As a Christ follower, I believe that Jesus persevered for me ultimately and that the victory has been won. I am now called to engage the fight (which means working out when it is -7° (C)!
MOLESKIN:
Pass the hat for TombRaider so he can by a shirt to work out in so his nipples don’t freeze off. Pumpkin Spice coffee is actually good when you’ve been outside for an hour in subzero.
ANNOUNCEMENTS:
