180 Merkin Fun Run

Northeast Tennessee Johnson City Arrowhead (Indian Trail)

Beautiful, sunny morning at a crisp 26 degrees. 15 Pax showed up to experience the joy of running.
LBAC IC x 9 both directions
SSH x 40 IC


Modified Merkin Mile:

5 Merkins IC every 1/8 mile for a mile = 40 Merkins IC

Al Gore on 6 at all times. We also managed 20 burpees in penalties for letting the flag touch the ground twice.

Pull-up and Jump Squat Ladder

Pull up ladder – pull ups and jump squats from 10 to 1, running between pull-up bars and 4rd parking lot light for the jump squats. Most Pax got nearly finished before I called time.

Modified Merkin Mile #2:

5 Merkins IC every 1/8 mile for a mile = 40 Merkins IC. Some bonus Merkins along the way put us at 90 Merkins IC for 180 Merkins total.

GPS watches put the Pax anywhere from 3.2 to 3.6 miles – so everyone got a 5k fun run out of the deal. Great job, everyone!

Insert information about any additional post-THANG work (if applicable).

James 4: 1What is the source of quarrels and conflicts among you? Is not the source your pleasures that wage war in your members? 2You lust and do not have; so you commit murder. You are envious and cannot obtain; so you fight and quarrel. You do not have because you do not ask. 3You ask and do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it on your pleasures. 4You adulteresses, do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God?

The audience is generally considered to be Jewish Christians, who were dispersed outside Palestine due to persecution

We need to examine our hearts more often than our needs. We should draw close to Christ for its own sake. Only then will we find what we should really be asking for.
