    The Thang

    Eight PAX joined in for the christening of Blackwater – many thanks to those who trekked outside their normal stomping grounds.

    Ironpax 2018 Week 1: 4 Rounds for time:

    • 50 Squats
    • 40 Big Bois
    • 30 Merkins
    • 20 Bonnie Blairs (each leg)
    • 10 Burpees
    • 400m run

    Watches were stopped after round 4 was completed but Pax were encouraged to pick up the 6 when they completed the workout.

    COT: “Men would rather be envied for their material success than respected for their character” – Christopher Lasch

    “The true worth of a man is to be measured by the objects he pursues” – Marcus Aurelius

    Many things that men struggle with in life (status seeking, insecurities, fear of failure, etc.) are based on pursuing the wrong things. PAX were encouraged to make sure their pursuits were centered on things that matter (God, Family, Community) because we will all be remembered for the impact we make on others.
