The Beat Down:
We began with warm-up lap around the field, then proceed doing SSH, Abe Vigoda’s, and Flying Sun Gods.Crazy 8’s began with 8 stations (4 at top of hill @ main pavilion – 4 at bottom of hill @ pavilion next to playground).  The stations were as follows:

Top of Hill –  Lunges, Squats, Imperial Walkers, Plank Jacks

Bottom of Hill – Decline Push Ups, Incline Push Ups, Merkins, Burpees

Everyone took a station and rotated around performing 8 reps of each exercise for 8 rotations.  So as not to lose the way between the Top of Hill and Bottom of Hill, 4 American Flags were positioned 18 paces apart to lead the way!  Hoorah!

At the conclusion of the rotations we circled up and did Round Robin Mary’s.  We did each Mary’s in 4 count cadence, except Big Boy Situps, and Supermans (18 individual count), for a total of 18!  (American Hammer, Flutter Kicks, Heal Touches, Big Boy Sit Ups, Supermans!

704 Total Reps and according to my Garmin – 1.5 miles of running!  GREAT JOB MEN!!!

We all struggle!  Could be in our personal lives, or in our professional lives.  We can’t always change those struggles, but we can change the way we react to them!  One of my favorite pieces has been framed and in every office I’ve had since 1998!  It is a simple thought from pastor and educator Charles R. Swindoll:

The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company…a church…a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past…we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you. We are in charge of our attitudes.
