12 Rock Region HIMS gathered today at The Tavern for a Tribute Beat Down courtesy of the PAX of NW Arkansas to honor Hudson Fryar, the young son of Nomad, who tragically passed away recently.  The PAX of NW Arkansas constructed this workout as a way for other regions to express TAP to Nomad and his family.  After a quick warm up of SSH we rolled out and got after it

The Thang –

The plan was simple but workout was not and is as follows:

H – 8 Hand Release Burpees

U – 21 Upright Rows

D – 4 Dan Taylor’s

S – 19 Spiderman Merkins

O – 15 Outlaws

N – 14 No Surrenders

The count for each exercise was the number for that letter in the alphabet.  The workout calls for 5 rounds and a .26 mile run in between each set.  5 rounds as Hudson was 5 months old when he passed.  .26 mile laps or 418 meters each in honor of Hudson’s birthdate 4/18.  The workout was well planned and well executed by all the PAX.  Thanks to the men of NW Arkansas for coming up with such a fun and challenging workout to honor the life of Hudson Fryar

After the workout, we gathered for COT where YHC shared all of the details for how this workout came to be & why we did it this morning.  Got me thinking, why do things like this happen?  I certainly don’t have all the answers but I know & believe that through faith God will see us through difficult times in our life.  With Discernment, the word of the month for the Rock Region, we know that we can always lean on Christ.  We can lean on our brothers in the Gloom & they can do likewise

Count it all Joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness

James 1: 2-3

Many thoughts & prayers go out to our brother Nomad.  The pain & grief I can only imagine you are dealing with is beyond my understanding and comprehension.  TAP lifted for you and your family that God will provide you peace & comfort

Thanks Night Crawler for the opportunity to lead this morning – it’s always an honor to do so

Ponytail out –
