Dora 1-2-3 with burpees when crossing midfield.

PAX partnered up and performed cumulative reps of 100 merkins, 200 LBCs IC, and 300 air squats while the other partner ran the width of the field and back. Whenever crossing the lights at midfield, one PAX did 1 burpee. Rinse and repeat (freed to lead and substitute choice favorite chest/AB/leg exercise next rounds).

Omaha was called just over 20 minutes and everyone finished 1-2 rounds with enough monotony for Monday morning mumble chatter before 6 minutes of Mary.

Thursday morning small group discussion is reading this book — Intentional Living: Choosing a Life That Matters. Living a meaningful life means living a life serving others.

I’ve been fortunate to have family living as examples. In the 1980s I would spend a month every other summer visiting my aunt and uncle who were RN’s in Manhattan. Driving in the city, often homeless people would spray the car windshield and wipe it off with newspaper. Every time my uncle would give any cash he could and say “thank you” while apologizing that he didn’t have more to give. I remember him saying more than once to me “If I don’t take care of my brother, who will?”

My father in law loves going to breakfast places and his goal is admittedly to make his waiter/waitress smiling and happier than before he sat down.

After a long day of interaction with others I used joke that I wish was a farmer and could just do work outside alone.

I would struggle to figure out why people around me didn’t think like me, set value to things that I did, or prioritize as I did.

Over time, that feeling maybe once a month has rarely entered my mind. It’s taken over a decade, and with the help of F3, to help find purpose for me to others. It took me too long to get myself right- that my purpose is for others and not the other way around.

“It’s said that Fred Rogers, of Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood, kept this quote in his wallet: “There isn’t anyone you couldn’t learn to love once you’ve heard their story.”

Bloodshot closed us out with B.O.M. Prayer. Aye!
