The PAX divided into two groups for a little friendly competition.

The Games
Each group had to run the Lakeshore Park loop (2.1 miles) and complete the 14 work stations set up along the route.  While traversing the trail, each group had to carry a 50lb sandbag and a concrete block (concrete masonry unit- CMU).  The only rule…all PAX had to stay together and finish the exercises before running to the next work station on the trail (plank it out- all you quick youngsters).

Group one began the run on the south entrance of the greenway and Group two started on the north entrance.

Work stations consisted of:  bear crawls, sprints around baseball infield, merkins, burpees, starjacks and a climb up Mt. Everest for a squat sequence.  14 stations in all.  Lots of hill work.

The highlight of the competition was when both groups met in the middle of the greenway (1/2 way through) and Edit led the entire group in a round of IC Starjacks.

Group 2 won the HUNGER GAME battle this time around, but I’m guessing that there will be a rematch in the near future.

Once both groups returned to the start point we gathered up to cash out.

Count-o-rama, Name-o-rama,


We will never be satisfied with things of this world (money, cars, health), but with Jesus- we will never want for anything.  John 6:35 Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whosever believes in me shall never thirst.”


I couldn’t believe my eyes.  Vehicle after vehicle rolled in to the AO and it was a legendary line-up.  Many of the original PAX from the Day 1 launch in 2015 were there for a hot and humid beat down.  Mumblechatter was in full swing 15 minutes before the workout began.

Incredible having so many “old timers” out this morning! It was an awesome day at the Asylum.  The best part of the day was when FNG- Snitch- informed the group that Woodshack once posed in his “underwear” for a cover photo for Newsweek magazine. Potential new F3 names for Woodshack are Zoolander and Playboy. Too bad Woodshack was unable to post today…he’ll pay for that information later.

Keep Gus in prayer as he prepares for the BAR exam this month.  Also prayers for Pablo and other memebers of the PAX who are traveling.

Great energy and hype today at the Asylum.
