“Measuring Up”

I started the morning out with Ole Blue and #30, we rucked along with the orange cones, which i just now realized I left at the 1 mile mark!  Made it back to the AO and had a moment or two to reflect about Measuring Up.  During F3 Grow School, Dredd, ask the PAX “How many times must a man measure up”, and the answer is “Just one more time”.  We men have been measuring up since we were born, just look back or better yet look at your 2.0’s.  Racing, tag, hide and seek, you name it…. We are MEN,  we are designed to be warriors, we COMPETE in the arena of life.   However, have you become complacent?  When is the last time you looked in the mirror and measured up against your greatest foe, yourself?  Those sadclown voices telling you you’re OK, sleep in, have an extra slice of pie, or another beer??? Are they?    This morning 12 PAX measured up with a APFT,  these men are doing battle with that little voice of complacency… They are bettering themselves and each other, Iron Sharpening Iron.

That Thang

COP = 15 Side Straddle Hops IC, 15 Jeff Imperial Walkers, and 15 Weed Pickers

Partnered up for APFT which consist of as many reps as possible in 2 minutes Push-ups, then 2 minutes AMRAP Sit-ups, then followed by a times 2 mile run.

Highlights from  the test…. BM’s partner drew the short straw (pun intended) because he was sporting the blue ranger panties today, Rosebud never called out no rep or poor form during the test for Love Seat’s PU’s, so they stand as counted.  Lastly the the run was a warm and humid as you would have expected, with no showing of Inmate, 1st place was up for grabs.

YHC closed out with Prayer, and Colossians 3:23-24  “What ever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters. 24 Since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.”   Go forth this week, and pour into your relationship with God, your Family, and Communities WITH ALL YOUR HEARTS!!!!! #3rd
