On a beautiful morning in Downtown Matthews, nine Pax gathered to begin their journey. They would soon be joined by one……
Here’s what we did:
A good crowd out today for a good beatdown. The burpees on Corner #3 really helped to bring the pain for everyone.
Hot Corner joined us for his first site visit- Apparently F3 Mint Hill was trying to get in touch with their feelings or stretch or something and he wasn’t having any of it. He was out front steadily pacing us- and also loved the four corners so much, he went back for more. Glad to have you out, hope this is not your last visit to Peak.
Spammer also showed up for the first time! He’s become a consistent presence at Mountain Goat on Fridays (5:15 at South Charlotte Middle) and he decided to stretch his wings and fly onto bootcamp workouts. A lot less running today, with a lot more burpees.
Smokey and South Paw were out front leading the pack as usual. South Paw’s got the stride of an antelope- which helps trying to keep up with the force of nature that is Smokey.
Gullah and Beaver were looking strong the whole way. I hope to one day grow up to be as cool as Beaver- I would say the same about Gullah, but he roots for GA Southern, and that’s just gross.
I also have a confession- Safelite didn’t sleep in the gazebo. But upon arriving fashionably late, he proceeded to run around downtown Matthews until he found us (dedication!). Next time we’ll hide for the first 20 minutes so he ends up running around for 3-4 miles, and eventually has to link up with the Sparta guys.
Slim Fast and Sensei were there as well, talking through how to fix America’s broken political system, or determining the theological implications of different kinds of BBQ- or something.
Continue to pray for Slim’s buddy Chris who is continuing to recover from a stroke. He has made good progress but still has a long way to go.
Thanks Sensei and DAS BOOT (Lois) for letting me lead- always a pleasure to be in the Gloom!
