19 PAX joined YHC for a game of chance at #TheTavern Thursday. After the disclaimer was disclaimed, we were ready to roll (literally). Here’s what we did…

The Thang
Mosey to Papa Johns for:
· 20 SSHs (IC)
· 20 Moroccan Night Clubs (IC)

· 20 Mountain Climbers (IC)
Mosey over to Harris Teeter

· Butt Kickers
· High Knees
· Karaoke
· Side Shuffle
· Bear Crawl
· Crab Walk
· Bunny Hop
· Broad Jump
· Nur
Circle Up for “Rolling with the Crunches.” We took turns rolling dice. One die was the exercise, the other was the rep (x10). This gave the PAX the choice of exercise and quantity (unless doubles were tossed).
1) Merkins
2) LBCs
3) Squats
4) Side Straddle Hops
5) Overhead Claps
6) Burpees
By my count, we went 10 rounds with a run after each set. I don’t recall the reps, but I believe it was in the neighborhood of 60 Merkins, 100 LBCs, 50 Squats, 60 Side Straddle Hops, 50 Overhead Claps, and 50 Burpees. Add in the 2.2 miles, and we had ourselves a little workout.
Thank you, Ryder for giving me the chance to lead. We were reminded today that we will always have choices in life. Sometimes those choices are hard to make and often the outcome is difficult to take, but if we make it through, we will garner something from the experience. Maybe its newfound strength. It could be memories that were worth the pain. You might learn a valuable lesson. But the fact remains, when a choice needs to be made, you need to make it. You’re either in or you’re out. Own it.
In the words of my parents, “Don’t forget who’s you are.” Be sure to represent our Heavenly Father well when given the choice. You’ll be glad you did.
