Today 11 men joined together in the unseasonably warm but wet aftermath of a heavy rain that preceded us. Plenty of puddles to step in but lots of good fellowship to counteract the wet. My apologies to Long Shanks for getting his shoes wet by moseying through the fields
Message: The challenge during partner activities was to engage in the taboo… to engage in dialogue around politics and religion. The great deceiver has created societal roles that it is taboo to talk about politics or religion because he knows when we talk about difference, when we talk about our own pain and suffering that what we usually find is commonality, hope and support that he doesn’t want you to find. This month take a leap of faith and make yourself vulnerable by speaking about something on your heart that you wouldn’t normally speak about. Find healing, support and hope in the men around you.
Started with some stretching… because we are old (except Falcon Crest but he played along)
Moseyed past the smelly trash can to the back parking lot for some Rugby sprints that included SSH, CCDs, Merkins, Sumo Squats, Hill Billy Walkers and maybe a couple others.
Mosey to the side HT wall for some wall sits and bear crawls from one end to the other (that is one long wall……….)
Mosey to Grace parking lot for the Starfish which included 8 pain stations within 1 Min. on and 15 seconds of transition which we did two rounds of that included 50#, 30#, 25# weights and a 10# ball.
This morning was a good work out but great fellowship among the pax. It was a lot of fun connecting but also sweating! Special call out to my partner, Old Bay, for the good conversation on politics and religion. I’m better because of the conversation. Aye!
