YHC woke up at 4:30 to the sound of little feet and eyes looking him square in the face, shortly followed by another pair of little feet and multiple requests for blankee’s, water, hugs, and kisses. Knowing the responsibility that lied before him he moved swiftly to provide for these little humans and slip out as they fell back into their slumber.

Driving to the A.O. YHC, devised a plan of simple exercises that would push the PAX and remind us of the foundation required to build on.

As the PAX arrived to a frigged 50 degree morning, YHC was shivering as the clock slowly approched 0530. Once the clock turned the disclaimer was given and the mosey call was made.

Made quick of the mosey as YHC was not warming up quickly enough and circled on the BB court for COP.

The call

SSH ic X30

Imperial walkers ic X25

Hillbillies ic X20

Sun Gods ic X15

Large circles and shake them outs.

YHC, inquired of the 10 PAX their marital status. ALL men present were wed. 2 to 23 years. Humbled by this YHC shared the weight of divorce rates and the weight of preaching on the topic this coming Sunday.
“Just because marriage gets hard, doesn’t mean you’re failing. Much like our workouts, just because it gets hard doesn’t mean you’re failing. Take courage keep pressing, love your wives, serve them and cherish them in the good and the bad.”

I’m thankful for the examples on the field this morning and am humbled to have lead such honorable men for 45 mins. Forgetting the chill and embracing the pain.

Ended lifting up Packo for his GoRuck HTL this weekend as He digs deep, takes steps and discovers the strength deep down inside of him. AYE!
