21 PAX for 21’s & Burpees, Again

Northeast Tennessee Johnson City Arrowhead (Indian Trail)

Beautiful mid-60’s morning.  Crisp late summer air and 21 PAX for some hard work with Honeysuckle on the Q.

Abe Vigoda (IC) X 10

WMH on the Q’s count

Merkins (IC) X 10

Ponzi lap (note Ponzi showed up during the lap and caught the 6 before the shovel flag).  Also note there was no slaughter starter.  Read further to find out why.


Simple – a little blackjack (21’s) getting back to F3 basics with the Merkin and the Squat.  Start out with 20 merkins on one side of the field, run across and do 1 squat with merkins and squats ascending and descending by 1 rep, respectively each time to always equal 21.  Oh yeah, did I mention that 5 burpees are required each time you cross midfield?

Just a reminder that we live in a broken world.  Recent events bring this to light.  While we go about our day, right now 10’s of thousands , maybe more, people are suffering in the Bahamas.  How often do they cross our mind?  Most of our frustrations likely come when we focus on ourselves instead of others.  Let’s start small.  Focus on those closest to you, your wife, your kids, your colleagues.  Put them first.  Be a light in a dark world.  Be a a HIM and make the world a better place.  John Wesley said “Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can.”  Don’t look at the problems around and fail to take action because you are overwhelmed.  Even a hurricane starts small somewhere unbeknownst to most of the world’s population…… -Philippians 2:3
