Rise of the Merkivator

Morning began with what looked as if only 5 of us were going to be doing the work, then 5 more showed with a minute to go with 1 late bloomer.  Windy and a little damp but no Pax were ready for what was about to be coming their way shortly.  A wonderful new exercise YHC created:  The #Merkivator.  It was a nice long winded exercise that worked the torso and legs in one grueling 8 minute joy ride.  By the end, all Pax were “ecstatic” and “overjoyed” at being the first to be apart of what I’m sure will be a new Turning Point exercise.

Conditions:  Windy and damp 63 degrees

The Merkivator is born
This is a merkin/motivator hybrid; after finishing a set of motivators, do a merkin.  As the motivator count decreases in number, the merkin count begins increasing in number.  Shreds the calf’s and arms – excellent choice for some quality mumble chatter.

Psalm 119: 105 Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path
Spoke to the PAX about a story close to my family that could have been a tragic one but because of the small contributions of many and one large contribution of an amazing person, saved the life of a wife and mother.  Many had heard of it through the news of the Lexington firefighter who gave part of his kidney to save a friends and neighbors life.  My family helped contribute to the families involved to allow a place for family members to come and stay during the recovery process.  It was a small part that led to an amazing story and encouraged PAX members that even the smallest of things like a smile or encouraging words can help bring some ones situation a bit of light that makes their story amazing also.
