No FNG’s so we hopped right into an Indian Run (2 lines) mosey .4-.5 miles to the lower sloped parking lot next to the marina, setting ourselves up for a nice workout with our friend, Dora.
Doras with a partner, making sure we “sprint” up the hill, really working out our leg workout reps.

As the famous Greek parable goes: “The fox knows many things, but the hedgehog knows one big thing.”
The fox spends his days, crafting up a devious, sly plan to attack the hedgehog daily. Always testing out every complex decision. The hedgehog goes about his every day activity of gathering food to provide for his family.
The hedgehog crosses into the foxes path and the fox attempts to attack, the hedgehog thinks to itself, “Here we go again,” and he curls up into a tiny ball, putting out his thorns and spikes on his back, protecting him. The hedgehog wins, every time.
We desire to live life like the hedgehog, but spend most of our time acting like the fox.
Foxes pursue many ends at the same time and see the world in all its complexity. they are “scattered or diffused, moving on many levels, never integrating their thinking into one overall concept or unifying decision.”
Hedgehogs, on the other hand, simplify a complex world into a single organizing idea, a basic principle or concept that unifies and guides everything. Anything that does not somehow relate to the hedgehog idea holds no relevance.
Call to action on discovering your core values:
1 – Listen (Psalm 46:10) – Step out of the traffic!” Take a long, loving look at me, your High God, above politics, above everything.”
2 – Look out, not in. When our focus is on ourselves, our problems, living for ourselves, we will not understand the meaning of our lives.
18 anxious PAX ventured to the Dog Pound this morning, hungry for a good workout due to the postponed Monday workout because of frozen rain and ice. We were ready to get after it, no standing around! As always the PAX brought their A-game…getting better together!
