Bringing the Pain at Sawmill

10 Pax entered the early morning gloom at Sawmill to get dose of Binary on the Q.  This was Binary’s first time leading the Pax at Sawmill which has had a great launch over the past two weeks.  Many of the original men who were there for opening day have stuck with it and have shown they want to #getbetter and #bebetter.  They are definitely taking the #DRP with weekday WOs starting at 5:15.  With that, let’s get to the recap.

Today’s workout was a great push by the PAX and was glad to have two new FNGs out today for the fun.  The group is really establishing themselves and will only continue to get stronger.  It’s fun seeing the ideas of exercises and workouts they plan to do when they Q.  Hopefully too more #mumblechatter will start to form as the PAX know each other better and can push each other.



Binary challenged the men today with the story of Caleb from the Bible in the Old Testament.  Caleb was a man of God and of courage as he went throughout his life.  He was one of only two who thought the Israelites could take the Promised Land and when they did conquer it, he didn’t want to settle for the lowland but at 85 wanted Hebron, which was the mountainous region.  He didn’t stop there.  He was a man of vision but also of passing on a legacy of faith.  After he died, Israel floundered in following God but thanks to his pouring into his son-in-law Othineal (#ISI), Othineal led the people by trusting God and there was 40 years of peace in the land.  What a great example for us to follow in how we pursue life and pour into others.
