Super 21s suck and we love them

THE SCENE: A comfy 54°, wet from last nights rain at Neverland.

F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER: Done and done.

SSH IC x51 (just to mess with them)
Daisy Pickers IC x15
Small arm circles IC x10 (+ reverse)

Super 21s
1 Merkin / 1 BBS
2 Merkins / 2 BBS

21 Merkins / 21 BBS

Pax either did 20 deep squats or moseyed up the hill to the gazebo after rounds 12, 15, 18, and 20 as a break. Wasn’t much of a break. For those keeping count that’s 231 Merkins and 231 BBSs. When finished, PAX held plank or did SSH while waiting for everyone to finish. No man left behind: PAX did the final set of 21s with the last man to finish.

American Hammers IC x25
Flutter kicks until time expired

Four PAX (0 FNGs): Tiger Lily, Tree Hugger, Backseat, Zima

“If we consider the unblushing promises of reward and the staggering nature of the rewards promised in the Gospels, it would seem that Our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased.” – CS Lewis, ‘The Weight Of Glory’

We cannot expect to attract people to our faith if they cannot see a difference in our lives. If we spend time bitterly arguing about politics, making excuses and blaming others for our circumstances instead of living lives filled with joy, we’re not going to make people want to know how / why we’re different.

I love Neverland – it’s a beautiful park and with the time change, you can actually see it as the workout ends. What a great way to start the day, especially putting in work with friends.

Just lifted our buddy Flobee up in prayer – a partially torn bicep will keep him away from us for a bit.
