FNG’s: Welcome Fanta (Joshua Heffley)
Weather: 70’s and HUMID!
The Thang: The workout was to run the normal loop in reverse. PAX split into two groups based on average mile pace. The 9 minute pace and higher began the loop while the under 9 minute group took a lap around the pond before beginning the loop.
Announcements: P200 – see Snowden or Wee Woo. We are trying to get a team of 12 together to participate. There is also the SC State National Guard Hurricane Hike coming up on October 13. Snyder is putting a lot of time and effort into this event and we need to spread the word around.
Pledge/Prayer/Devo: Romans 12:4-5
For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.
Having a brotherhood of men is the perfect place to bring life’s big questions. We can’t and shouldn’t want to tackle life’s big questions on our own. Praying for each other in times of trouble and sharing experiences that could possibly help keep each other from making the same mistake is vital. Our experiences are limited to what we’ve experienced. But, if we surround ourselves with other men and talk about our collective knowledge, experiences, and lessons learned, we would be amazed at the amount of wisdom that would come out of it. Having access to that wisdom is something of great value and is available through brotherhood.
We all have a different story to tell through our life with different experiences, talents, and challenges. Often times, we don’t know where we’re weak in our own story. However by coming together as brothers and combining our stories, we compliment each other’s strengths and improve each other’s weaknesses.
Moleskin: Personal note to self, make sure all PAX know the route to take. While the extra miles are great to get in, it is important to make sure we provide the necessary instruction to make sure everyone finishes together.
