12 pax beat the warmth of the fartsack to get better this morning. 4 made stridelite. Kenwood (like always) made us all look bad by rucking to Ambush, hitting stridelite, crushing The Grinder, and rucking home. T-Claps to T-Boone for coming out. And to Scotch for giving it a try. Also, we figured out our local banker can’t do math. You know who you are Pennyworth. All the men worked hard and iron was sharpened.
Conditions: 31 and Frosty
There are 6 “islands” around the parking lot we meet in. Three to the left of the flag and three to the right. We will circle the parking lot stopping at each island to perform an exercise. We start at the shovel flag.
Run to island #1 and perform 21 Merkins. Sprint to # 2 and perform 21 Squats. Sprint to # 3 and perform 21 LBC’s. Sprint roughly 150 yards to # 4 and perform 21 Merkins. Sprint to # 5 and perform 21 Squats. Sprint to # 6 and perform 21 LBC’s. Sprint roughly 60 yards back to the shovel flag. Perform 1 burpee. You have completed 1 lap.
Rinse and Repeat until time is called, adding 1 rep per exercise per lap. Every lap is roughly 1/4 mile. Second lap would be 22 of each and 2 burpees.

Matthew 25: 14-28
The Parable of the Talents
14 “For it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants[a]and entrusted to them his property. 15 To one he gave five talents,[b] to another two, to another one, to each according to his ability. Then he went away. 16 He who had received the five talents went at once and traded with them, and he made five talents more. 17 So also he who had the two talents made two talents more. 18 But he who had received the one talent went and dug in the ground and hid his master’s money.19 Now after a long time the master of those servants came and settled accounts with them. 20 And he who had received the five talents came forward, bringing five talents more, saying, ‘Master, you delivered to me five talents; here, I have made five talents more.’ 21 His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant.[c] You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.’22 And he also who had the two talents came forward, saying, ‘Master, you delivered to me two talents; here, I have made two talents more.’23 His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.’ 24 He also who had received the one talent came forward, saying, ‘Master, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you did not sow, and gathering where you scattered no seed, 25 so I was afraid, and I went and hid your talent in the ground. Here, you have what is yours.’ 26 But his master answered him, ‘You wicked and slothful servant! You knew that I reap where I have not sown and gather where I scattered no seed? 27 Then you ought to have invested my money with the bankers, and at my coming I should have received what was my own with interest. 28 So take the talent from him and give it to him who has the ten talents.
The Lord gives us resources and abilities, and He desires that we use them well. One such gift is time.
In order to manage our coming days effectively, we should continually review the one we’ve just lived: What activities did we choose? How much time did each take? What were the results? This discipline will reveal what is most important to us.
In looking closely at our assessments, we can determine what drives our decisions about how to use time. Some people merely respond to circumstances for a majority of their day. They jump from one thing to the next, handling whatever appears in their world at the moment—whether personal, family, or business matters. But this style of living misses the mark.
Other people spend their time according to desires. They want to relax, so they get home and watch television for the evening. Or they love to hunt, so they use their time to research equipment and locate wildlife in the forest. Desires are not bad, but they should not drive the bulk of our actions.
Thankfully, there are also people who live according to what they deem important. Loving God and serving others, for instance, are two biblical values that should, ideally, determine what we do with our time.
If you itemize your activities and their time consumption over the course of a week, you might be surprised at which are the predominant events. Each moment is a gift, so set aside a few minutes each evening to plan the next day. Then revisit how you spent the last 24 hours. This will help you to live purposefully.
