Mosey to playground
We each found a place on the ropes to hang. You had to hang totally suspended for as long as possible. Last man hanging wins and that honor went to none other than McAfee with his weighted vest. Well done
Mosey back to monument
5 Merkins, 10 Big Boys, 15 Tuck Jumps, 20 Box Jumps, 25 Dips, 30 Lunges, 35 Air Presses, 40 Squats, 45 American Hammers, 50 Burpees
This is an upside down pyramid. We started with 5 merkins and ran a lap. We then did 5 merkins and 10 big boys then ran another lap and so forth until we got to the 50 burpees. We got close to time being up, so I had the PAX skip a few so we could finish on the burpees.
We had the honor to meet Jim Miller, a friend and co-worker of Aerobie’s father. For those of you who don’t know, Aerobie’s father passed away many years ago in Febuary 1986. Jim let us know how his life was touched and changed during his time working at UPS with Aerobie’s dad. It was moving to say the least.
I’d also like to take this opportunity to gush a little about our own Aerobie. During the past year as I’ve seen him grow and get better in the workouts, he’s gone far beyond that in the 3rd F component. You’ll always find him planning events to help others. He’s really a true example of a HIM, and we’re lucky to know him. I know his dad would be extremely proud of the man he is.
To end, I challenged the PAX to reach out to somebody who has impacted your life in a positive way and let them know. It could be somebody who you haven’t spoken to in many years. Make that phone call.
As always it was a humbling experience to lead a fine group of men. Until next time…
