Mosey to hill. Played red rover…sort of. 4 PAX on one side, 3 on the other. One person at a time runs over the hill, slaps hands with the first in line on other side of hill (who then runs over the hill), moves to back of line and performs 3 burpees. Increased to 5 burpees then to 7 burpees due to explosive speed of folks getting over the hill.
Mosey to soccer field where things got interesting.

Anne Lamott writes that “hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come. You wait and watch and work: you don’t give up.”
Choose hope. Keep showing up for one another. Keep putting in the work. Don’t give up and don’t let the guy next to you. We are stronger together. Solid start to the day.
