    Captain Thor: In a 1:4 ratio of increasing reps, Big Boys/LBCs; the PAX reached 6:24


    “Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose trust is the LORD. He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit.” The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it?

    Jeremiah 17:7–9
    • Trusting in God (vs our hearts, which are deceitful/sick) will help us to weather drought/suffering when it comes.


    • The PAX completed 113 Burpees.
      • Kind of a disappointing showing of Bingos–perhaps it was the 100 that were completed as part of routines?
    • The plan was always to go back “down” the ladder. It was NEVER that YHC did not plan properly.
    • The title of the backblast comes from this video, after Dreamliner said a passing motorcycle “was not obeying the posted speed limit”:
