“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭6:25-34‬ ‭ESV‬‬


Scully, inspired by a podcast, added Blackwater to his weekly routine. YHC remembered losing count of which round he was on in 2020, so “snack packs” of 10 Skittles were distributed to PAX to either 1) serve as an abacus, or 2) provide a boost of energy after each set. YHC still miscounted, and “black flagged” himself (stopping mid-way through the 400m lap to complete an additional 10 Merkins). The legend of Dreamliner’s 2020 performance in the rain was referenced, as was his photo finish provided by a GoPro on a tripod.
