7 PAX gather in the parking lot of Hobby Lobby for a little Sunday F3Tread action. 2 ran and 5 rucked for 30 minutes in and around the general area. Prior to that, 1 ran and 1 rucked for some XL action.
Hereinbelow is something of a summary of what transpired during the kettlebell portion of the workout.
Note that disclaimer and opening prayer were offered prior to the above mentioned running and rucking activity, but after the XL portion….before the regular part.
As is customary, a BB from YHC always includes a little music to listen as you read. Today YHC goes way back to an early influence, here is the dramatic closing musical number from the timeless opera, What’s Opera Doc: (pay close attention, classic!!)

Time for Devo:
Enough of that!
Now for the Devotional (which I forgot) from Our Daily Bread – and could strike a tone if you are a Methodist
Divided in Love
Today’s Scripture & Insight:
When public debate erupted over a controversial Singapore law, it divided believers with differing views. Some called others “narrow-minded” or accused them of compromising their faith.
Controversies can cause sharp divisions among God’s family, bringing much hurt and discouraging people. I’ve been made to feel small over personal convictions on how I apply the Bible’s teachings to my life. And I’m sure I’ve been equally guilty of criticizing others I disagree with.
I wonder if the problem lies not in what or even in how we express our views, but in the attitudes of our hearts when we do so. Are we just disagreeing with views or seeking to tear down the people behind them?
Yet there are times when we need to address false teaching or explain our stand. Ephesians 4:2–6 reminds us to do so with humility, gentleness, patience, and love. And, above all else, to make every effort “to keep the unity of the Spirit” (v. 3).
Some controversies will remain unresolved. God’s Word, however, reminds us that our goal should always be to build up people’s faith, not tear them down (v. 29). Are we putting others down to win an argument? Or are we allowing God to help us understand His truths in His time and His way, remembering that we share one faith in one Lord? (vv. 4–6).
