THE SCENE: A nice cool morning. Low 60s
F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER
20 SSH, 20 Merkins, 20 Squats, some little warmup stuff on the run to Crumpet
At crumpet, we did a set of 8s. Burpees at the bottom, Big Boys at the top. For my 8th wedding anniversary!
Back at the little field next to the pavilion, we had a bunch of agility cones set up. One person would call out an exercise for everyone to do while they ran the cones. They come back and slap the walking path. Everyone runs to the last cone and back. The next person calls out a new exercise and the process repeats.
Lot’s of folks called for ab exercises during the beatdown, so we just went to time.
COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA
4 HIMs and 1 2.0
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Taking Relationships for “Granted” vs. “Cherishing” our Relationships.
In our relationships, we take a lot of things for “granted”. Meaning, we assume, intentionally or unintentionally, that something is just due to us or it has to be because it’s our right or something. Relationships cannot be taken for granted. We are not owed a given relationship. We have to work on them and for them.
Instead, we ought to “cherish” our relationships. A good definition of cherish is to “care for” and “protect” someone lovingly. Cherishing starts with giving a rip. You have to care for someone in order to cherish, so you have to care. Ask what is going on with them and listen. Figure out what is important and meaningful for that person. Then we have to protect. Often we do the opposite and are the greatest accusers of the people closest to us. And I’m the worst example of this, finding fault in whatever is rubbing me the wrong way in a given moment. Instead, I need to put the other first and desire to protect them.
Likely a Breakfast at Drifter’s at the end of the month or beginning of next.
