Archives: Abort! Abort!

  • When: 
  • QIC: SubMac
  • The PAX: Screen Door, 3 for 1, Scully, Clifford, Tow Rope, Mentos, Delfator, Half Life, Luau
  • 10 PAX posted to StinkHill even though a few regulars couldn’t make it.  It was a beautiful sight to see the flags flapping on this windy morning.

    The Thang

    PAX moseyed over to the stairs for Everest – lunge up and squat each step.  The mumble chatter started about halfway up.  Next everyone grabbed a coupon for Rock Olympics.  The coupons seem to be shrinking in size due to rough handling.  This needs to be corrected immediately or else we will end up with Pebble Olympics.

    From there the PAX moseyed to the next methane pole and performed 10 burpees IC.  As the PAX were catching their breath, YHC briefly described his plane trip last Monday:  The plane was a twin prop 19 passenger plane.  The ride had been above the clouds the whole trip but as we started to drop altitude preparing to land we entered the clouds/fog where YHC couldn’t see 10 ft out the window.  We continued to drop altitude with zero visibility until at the last second the pilot decides to abort the landing and throws the throttle down to climb quickly out of the clouds.  We made a big circle and attempted the landing again with same result.  On the 3rd attempt we found an opening and landed.  In honor of that, the PAX ran 3/4 way down hill, turned to sprint back to top and run halfway to next methane pole then circled back.  This was repeated again and on 3rd time the PAX ran to bottom of hill.

    A quick audible was called to circle up for dealers choice abs while 3 for 1 ran to his car for the cones.  We finished the workout with 25 mins of Frisburpee.  YHC definitely got his fill this time!  It was a close game but YHCs team lost.  It wasn’t for lack of effort though as a couple of diving catches by Deflator showed.  However, the dives may have been to avoid burpees rather than an attempt to score.


    Every one of us is going through some trial or tribulation right now whether big or small.  Some of us are praying for guidance on some of those things.  YHC wanted to remind everyone how important it is to get into God’s word daily.  God speaks to us through his word and if we aren’t reading the Bible everyday we may miss his response to our prayers.

    Romans 20:17. So Faith comes from hearing, and hearing comes though the Word of Christ.

    Hebrews 4:12.  For the Word of God is living and active, sharper than any 2 edged sword, piercing to the division of the soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
