Thang 3: Two-mile run
AYG@Big Mac once again blew us away with 101 bbsus. @Katniss kept pace with 94 merkins to Big mac’s 95. The only drama came during the run. @Tortuga was working the mental game, trying to psyche out the competition, and set a blistering pace our of the gate. After finishing the first lap at 1:15, he almost broke @Hotbox and @Katniss. But it was not to be. Hotbox got his mojo cooking halfway through lap two, passed Tortuga, and just kept flying. His 12:37 might be an AO Wheaton two mile record. Katniss kept trucking too, eventually passing Tortuga in the last half mile on the way to an impressive 13:09. Even though he was pressing for a sub 13 minute time, Tortuga was satisfied with his 13:27. (He is pushing 52 after all.)COT: Prayers for the people of Afghanistan. Some projections have a huge percentage of the population facing deep hunger this winter. Lifting up Wiseman from Hope for the Orphan today.Moleskin: As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another. We see the benefits of pushing each other to greater heights physically. It helps to have someone encourage you on your form, too. While physical training is of some value, spiritual training is for eternity. If you aren’t getting the benefits of an accountability partner yet, you are missing out. They will push and encourage you to reach greater heights in your marriage, as a dad, and in other areas of your life. Find a brother to lock shields with and begin some accountability with them.
