    26 Pax including four 2.0s one of whom was a FNG showed up for a Labor Day Convergence workout at the Western Branch High School football field. The workout was in honor of the 25th anniversary of Cal Ripken’s (the Iron Man) 2131st consecutive baseball game on September 6, 1995 breaking “Iron Horse” Lou Gehrig’s record for most consecutive Major League Baseball games played. 

    The following 25 exercises were performed with 25 reps either in cadence (c), single count (s), or time (t-25 seconds). After each exercise run the length of the football stopping every 25 yards to do a burpee. This was later changed to a burpee at midfield and then changed to no burpee with exercises performed at midfield and each end zone. The exercises were:

    Genesis 2:1-3

    1 Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array. 2 By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. 3 Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.

    Acts 20:35

    In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’

    Colossians 3:23

    Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.

    Ecclesiastes 3:22

    Nothing is better for a man than that he should eat and drink, and that his soul should enjoy good in his labor.

    Exodus 20:8-10

    Give generously to them and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the LORD your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to.

    Last week my 49 year old cousin Walker Russell past away from his battle against cancer. This was a saying he created and lived by: “Do good deeds and try not to get caught”

    Happy Labor Day
