The Thang

The PAX began our beatdown at the Hot Gates by counting off and running out to the 11th lamp post.  Each PAX depending on their number would get to chose an exercise to perform starting with eleven at the last lamp post.  The PAX then ran to the tenth lamp post and performed ten of the respective exercise, nine at the ninth, and so on until reaching the Hot Gates. We were only able to get through four PAX before our time ran out.

CIRCLE OF TRUST:  As a manager, this time of year has a special significance for me as I have to conduct annual reviews which financially impact people’s lives.  While I understand that I’m reviewing the performance of those who work for me, I play a tremendous role in their success.   As leaders, we have a responsibility to make sure we are leading and not managing so that those who are subordinate to us are motivated, equipped, and have every opportunity to achieve success.  Lead from the front and lead by example, you never know what impact that will have on those around you.


BALL OF MAN: Prayers were requested for family members of The Count, Fastlane, Straight Jacket, and Ms. Baker.


Moleskin

There seemed to be an inordinate amount of Land Mines around the Greenway Saturday.  The definition of a Land Mine is: Any unwanted and unhygienic foreign object littering the Area of Operation that would cause the PAX to potentially strip off articles of clothing should they inadvertently wallow in or come in contact with while performing an exercise.  Common examples of Land Mines are dog turds and discarded prophylactics.
