Morning Call… Extended Cut

PAX circle up around the playground and get in merkin position. Each PAX does 5 pull ups while all others do 5 merkins. All felt the burn as we worked through all 18 PAX. Good thing the plank warm-up had all arms primed and ready.

Mosey back to courts for a strong finish

Circle-Burp and Donkey Show

5-ish rounds of each brought us to 6:15. Great work by all.



Prayers for all that are struggling with illness – particularly Belding and Baywatch’s friends.

Prayers for the family mentioned by No-See-Um. Stay tuned for ways to give.

Welcome Mole!

Splinter will be holding his quarterly “Fun Run 5k” on March 6th. It’s a great event that I’ve gone to every time with my family. All ages are welcome, and Splinter has medals for everyone that completes it. This time he will have separate categories for male/female ruck, kids best time, etc. I’ll post more info as it gets closer. Held at J. Ben Harrill Rec Center in Holiday.
