Parking lot warm-up
3rd Grade exercises
Willie Mays Hays
We moseyed to the lower entrance down the hill and subsequently lined up in the order in which we finished. We then broke off into 3 teams.
Rules were explained. This is a team exercise and we therefore will begin as a team, travel as a team, and finish as a team. Coupons and DRPs will be carried between stations. There are 5 stations and all teams must use the clues to hit all 5 stations.
Divide into teams and develop your schemes, But first head up the hill to take your daily red pill.
At each station,
While one PAX goes to grab a Dwayne, the other must endure the PAIN:
Station 1 – You may go here if you have the shits, But instead you’ll be performing quite a few sits (Bathroom)
Wall sit 4-count x 60
Wall plank merkins x 15
Station 2 – Head to where a kid might play, But avoid the Free Candy along the way (Playground)
Plank swings x 10
Pullups x 5
Station 3 – Head to the place you may leave your keys, And get ready to do many burpees (Lower parking lot)
Burpees x 20
Station 4 – Go where you may find Best in Show, And make sure you’re not too slow (Dog Park)
LBC x 50
Station 5 – Go to the place where many have scored. I can assure you, you will not be bored (Soccer field)
2 laps around the field
Head to the Pavilion like you’ve won a million, and hold the plank while you await your rank
While waiting for all to finish, various plank exercises were performed, led by random PAX
Once all PAX were in, the “prizes” were doled out.
1st place – one mosey lap
2nd place – return all coupons
3rd place – 10 burpees
One cool down lap done.

BALL OF MAN
Stimulus –> Response
One of the unique advantages that humans have over animals and other creatures is the ability to choose. We are too often conditioned to think that a certain stimulus automatically generates an expected response, much like the dog in Pavlov’s experiments. However, between the stimulus and the response, humans have the freedom to choose how they respond to a certain stimulus. We can choose to have a negative reaction or choose to have a positive reaction. We can let our circumstances dictate our response or we can choose our response regardless of our circumstances. We all have the choice to decide how things are going to affect us.
I am often very guilty of not doing this. If I get hit with a circumstance that I don’t like, too often I choose to allow it to bring me down or ruin my day. However, I have come to realize that it was my choice that led to my attitude. It’s a never-ending battle to overcome this thought process but I encourage you to choose the right attitude and not let your circumstances dictate your response.
