Thang 1: mosey to east campus for 30 dips, 20 step ups, and 10 step overs

Partner up – with partners facing each other, teeter totter to 100 (partner 1 stands while partner 2 squats, partner 2 stands while partner 1 squats)

Circled up for Mary – duck duck flutter goose: flutter kicks in a circle while one Pax ran around the circle, rotated through all 14 Pax

Ended with some mountain climbers. Held a moment of silence for Cardinal.

CoT: Sometimes the reminder to live in the moment is right in front of us. Sometimes it’s not as obvious. I’ve been caught looking into the distance at what I want and what I’m working towards at the expense of overlooking the moment right in front of me. Everyday is a gift, every hour is a collection of moments. Let’s not waste ’em.

We offered prayers for Cardinal, his family, and his brothers in F3 Knoxville. Offered prayers for our cancer warriors and one Pax’s daughter who is facing her own struggles. I told the guys I love them. I meant every word of it.
