*We spotted some joggers so we all stopped and conducted 20 BBSU.

We then turned our attention toward the RING OF FIRE

We then took a small mosey over to the river walk where we partook in the…

THE THANG

+Starting at the first light pole along the walk, we bear crawled to the next light pole…then we lunged to the next light pole…THEN bear crawl for 2 more light poles; followed by lunges for 2 more light poles…THEN we bear crawled for 3 light poles followed by lunges for 3 more light pole…
We spotted some more joggers so we dropped and did 20 BBSU.

After a 10 count from Mr. Clean, we repeated the bear crawls / lunges that we just did.

We then headed to the base of what I call the Boob Hill. From there, the following instructions were given for what I am calling a “Modified Cooper:”

1 John 2:15-16
Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life—is not from the Father but is from the world.

-Most men’s downfalls can be linked back to what this verse commands us to stay away from: desires of the flesh and eyes and pride…It’s also been categorized this way: “Gold, Glory and Girls.”

The problem is that most men, if not all men struggle with being prideful, chasing money and women. To help each other fight off these temptations, it is imperative that we be honest with each other about our weaknesses and our struggles. It’s only in being honest about where we ARE that we can get help getting where we need to BE.

Let’s be an authentic band of brothers—a safe place for each man to share where he is at, without judgement, so we can help each other get better.

-CS Lewis “Friendship … is born at the moment when one man says to another “What! You too? I thought that no one but myself . . .”
