At the start of this new year I decided I would get out and Q at each AO that conducted a Saturday WO. My first Saturday Q was today at Graveyard on a cold and clear 35 degree morning. Some of the veterans of the AO had given me a heads up as most of the PAX who show up on Saturdays at Graveyard play ultimate frisbee. No problem. I will modify.
After disclaimer circle up for a SS hops, TT tunnel, little baby arm circles, Imperial Walkers etc to help get warmed up.
Count off into teams. I called out an exercise to do after each turnover (squats, merckans) and burpees for each time a team was scored against. This went on for the first 15 minutes or so and then straight play without exercises except when there was a score (burpees). This went on for remainder of today’s work out.
Always inspiring to to see the younger crowd come out on a early Saturday morning to get better. They inspired me and I hope I inspired them a little. Thank you for having me today. It was an honor.

DEVOTIONAL: The journey from Faith to Love: 2 Peter 1: 5-10
5 For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; 6 and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; 7 and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. 8 For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 But whoever does not have them is nearsighted and blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their past sins.
10 Therefore, my brothers and sisters,[a] make every effort to confirm your calling and election. For if you do these things, you will never stumble, 11 and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
We all possess these qualities. The passage tells us if we possess them with INCREASING MEASURE they keep us from being ineffective and unproductive. The passage does not give a limitation or capacity of these traits just simply refers to having them in INCREASING MEASURE. There is no limit on how much of these traits we are to have within us. PAX looking to be better in their homes, lives, workplace were encourage to seek out those men who demonstrate these traits. Men who have strong marriages, God fearing children, successful careers etc. Amen.
