8 HIMS of the Rock Region gathered today at Wall Street on a cold morning to run and run we did.  Temps were in the low 30’s which are nice conditions to run in after you get over the initial chill in the air.  As the top of the 0500 hour approached, YHC shared the route with the PAX and a reminder to pick up the six for extra mileage and a few turnaround points for those looking for a few less miles.  The route was a familiar one that we have done before, it’s well lit and very safe.

The Thang –

We headed out down Herlong towards Ebenezer and ran a loop behind the hospital.  Then we headed down Ebenezer and turned right on Camden arriving near the McDonald’s on Cherry Road.  We crossed Cherry Road and turned up Alumni Drive and did a loop around the Winthrop Campus.  Then we headed down Oakland Ave and down India Hook back to the AO.  In total, we got in about 6 miles each and enjoyed some great conversation along the way.  All of the guys did a great job and encouraged one another

We concluded the morning with a few announcements along with prayer requests & praises

YHC shared the following verse with the PAX

James 1 : 2-3

Consider it pure joy my brothers & sisters whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance

With the upcoming holiday season upon us it is easy for many of us to find our joy.  Whether that be in celebrating the birth of Christ, spending time with kids & other family and the season of giving & sharing.  For others, the holidays can be a tough time.  Many deal with remembering a loved one or other sad times & the holidays are not so joyful.  I encouraged all the men today that no matter your situation, good times or bad, we all have much to be grateful for and urged them to find their joy this holiday season and help others do the same

Thanks Honey Pot for the opportunity to lead today in the Gloom.  It’s always an honor to do so –

Ponytail out –
