SCS: No extra miles were had at Bedrock today
YHC had the idea of making a down payment on all that Halloween candy that will be eaten today and decided the best way to handle this is with burpees and bear crawls! It’s 0500, lets go!!
After the warmup YHC instructed the PAX to number of in 4’s and told the 3’s to each grab a block and mosey to the Whiffile Ball Field. Once we arrived at the field the PAX was met with a pumpkin carved with the letters to spell “BURPEE”. Of course the PAX ribbed YHC with the fact there wasn’t an “S” at the end but my instructions were clear: Separate into your groups and head to a station and complete the set of exercises together. Once complete, bearcrawl to the pitchers mound by the pumpkin and perform 5 burpees and bear crawl back, then sprint to the next station. Do this until time is called…
75 High Dolly
75 Carolina Dry Docks

The PAX had time to make it through 1 round before Omaha was called, then we packed up (Thanks Rabbit Ears for disposing of the Burpee Pumpkin) and headed back to the Flag for some Mary!

Have you ever had thoughts of retaliation? Of course, we all have! You get that instant gratification of giving someone a piece of your mind or showing them how smart you are and how dumb they are; but what have you gained? Did that solve the problem? Absolutely not, it only made you feel good for a brief moment of time before regret kicked in along with feelings of anger. We never know what those who have wronged us are thinking or going through, so the next time you’re presented with an opportunity to inflict harm on another stop and ask yourself if these actions or words will change anything; sometimes silence is a better alternative than a flood of negative words.
