Quick Mosey

Warm O’ Rama


15IC Windmills

15IC Imperial Walkers

Mosey to the Pre-Thang….


Wilt Chamberlain’s – 100 consecutive LBC’s – Jog – 100 Air Squats

Led by individual Pax in counts of 25. 100 is a bit high to count and something we struggled with…


Pax counted off into three total groups.  Darkness awaited in the Octagon as it was a good challenge to see the stations.  In total there were 8 stations – all containing 4 exercises, each with 20 reps of each.  Some stations proved more challenging than others.  With the completion of each station each group would advance to another station. Most groups completed 6-8 total rotations.

Dr. Wayne Dyer famously wrote, “When given the choice between being right and being kind, choose kind.” We all struggle with the insecurities of our egos, with the insecurity of being wrong. And a threatened ego will almost always lash out. When we make an effort to prove someone wrong by establishing ourselves as right, we’re being unkind in the process, whether we intend to be or not.

Only the ego cares about the distinctions between right and wrong. The heart simply loves and accepts whomever is on the other side of the conversation. Let’s operate from our hearts, with kindness.

The next time we feel ourselves pressing to make our point and needing to be right, let’s take a moment to remember that being right is not the goal. It’s unimportant. Let’s try to integrate some of the above comments into our way of speaking, knowing that by doing so we invite a more conscious and loving exchange with whomever is on the other side of our dialogue.

Closed in prayer
