21 faithful came together today to close out our Legion bootcamp and AO at Hampton Memorial Park. We planted from Woodshed in April 2015 when a group of men led by Wingback desired a 1 full hour long weekday workout, expressly designed to maximize 1st F punishment. For 6 years, we got a twice-weekly beatdown, as each Q brought their worst, and there was no chance to plateau. Additionally, we had some great 2nd and 3rd F participation and growth as well.
Sadly, its season of independent existence is now over. We are moving permanently to rejoin with our brothers at Woodshed. However, I hope we look at this as an opportunity to press onwards, as YHC will outline in the devo below. But first…

Devo: Philippians 3:12-14- “…Forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”
Just as this season at Legion is ending, it is not a time to become complacent. Not in our fitness life or in fellowship, but much more importantly focusing on our eternal life. We are called to be men and leaders and servants and do much in this life, and we should, but the primary goal is to serve the Lord in the way He calls us, now, for His glory, while laying up crowns and preparing ourselves for eternal service to Him. So press onwards and upwards men!
Thank you men. It has been an honor and a privilege to post alongside you for 6 years, and to provide servant-leadership for the past 6 months. I will see you next week at Woodshed!
