I was wanting to use the track with a lot of movement in order to establish a good sweat and solid beatdown. The pax were broken up into pairs. It worked out perfectly to have 10 pairs, each going to a separate station to start then moving clockwise after completion. Mode of travel between states alternated between mosey and bear crawling. The beatdown consisted of 10 stations spaced evenly around the perimeter of the track marked by cards and lights.

My COTs generally are a personal issue I am processing or need help with. The issue at hand is regarding. Power is a strange thing. Often, I don’t realize how much power I might give others over me. Mainly emotional power. I have a family member that I wish to have a deeper connection and closer relationship with. However, this other person does not display the action that would show they want the same thing. This wears on me heavily. I long for acceptance. This being said, I allow this person’s actions and lack of action to have power over my mental state and attitude. I let this affect my mood and personality. I consider myself an outgoing confident person. When I am around this person I allow for my mood to shift and become negative and reserved. I am not myself. I let my longing, for acceptance in this case, get the better of me and thus affect people I care about around me. I either consciously or unconsciously allow this to happen. Giving power over me and my emotional state to someone that has no business having that influence. The great thing is I can control this. This is an emotional adjustment and a recommitment to who I am and what I am about. Let this be a lesson to all of us. Who we surround ourselves with matters. This being said, we have the power in ourselves to allow people to influence us for better or worse. Make sure it is for the better. This is a way more powerful way to go about life and how to make the most out of the relationships we have.
