I couldn’t sleep last night so came out to the site at 4am then set up the stations and started the coffee percolator.  Then, I did a 2 mile EC run.  Thank you to Joe Dirt for having my 6 as Site Q.  I was excited that we had several of the newer PAX out for the BC this morning too.

The Thangs

Thang 1:We went to the path along the side of the Hill. One partner stays down at the path and does 20 merkins, 20 LBCs, and 50 jump rope repeating the cycle of exercises until the other partner returns Other partner farmer carries both coupons up the hill to the top and sets them down and does 10 air squats then farmer carries them down to the other partner Rinse and Repeat
Thang 2:It has two stations.  One at the pavilion and one down towards the bus stop down the path (about 0.12 miles) Start at station 1 – 1st round do 20 curls and 20 dips then run to station 2 Station 2 do 2 merkins and 2 freddy mercury’s (bicycle crunches) then run back to station 1. 2nd round at the pavilion do 20 shoulder presses and 20 bent over rows then run to station 2.  Add 2 to the exercises at the bus stop so now 4 of each then next time 6 of each and so forth

Circle of Trust (CoT)

I repeated my COT from my Q at the Wood yesterday because it really is hitting home for me right now and only one person is there that heard it. For my COT, I want to start with a short story. One day a farmer’s donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally, he decided the animal was old and the well needed to be covered up anyway it just wasn’t worth it to retrieve the donkey. He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and begin to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone’s amazement, he quieted down. A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well and was astonished at what he saw. With every shovel of dirt that fell on his back, the donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up. As the farmer’s neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and trotted off! The moral of the story is that life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt.  The trick is to not get bogged down by it.  We can get out of the deepest wells by not stopping. And by never giving up.  Shake it off and take a step up. We all have setbacks in our lives.  We can’t allow ourselves to give up or let it keep us down.  The greatest accomplishments in history would not have occurred if the individuals had given up in the face of adversity. Aye?
