The good ole Ricky Bobby

It’s getting cold this time of year and today was definitely the coldest we’ve had so far. The weather app on YHC’s phone said 26 degrees and it felt every bit that cold, however, TRB has helped create a strong following of HIMs who have #HTFU so a little cold didn’t scare them. You can join the strong too if you’re not scared. 13 showed this morning. This is what happened…


Pledge of Allegiance

Warmup: Don Quixote, Tesla stretches (the thing where you plank then move your foot to your hand then raise an arm)


Go to the first light and back, 25 LBCs, go to the next light down and back, 25 LBCs, and so on. 4 lights total, 100 LBCs.

At this point YHC gave the PAX the option to go to the track or around back of the school, they chose around back.

Mosey around back where it was announced to partner up for

Dora 12345 (that’s right 5!)

Partner 1 runs to the other end of the lot while partner 2 does exercises.

100 WW whatever situps

200 Merkins (as President and founder of the MHC this took me by surprise when I realized that it was on my own weinke! Oh well, it sounded good the night before when I wrote it down so we went with it.)

300 Squats

400 LBCs

500 Side Straddle Hops

Add on 5 burpees for the train too. Lots of heart rate pushing there, especially with the SSH. Good stuff!

Mosey through the playground to the track. Since we’re in the holiday season YHC decided we’d do some festive stuff. Bear crawl halfway across the field, stop and do 25 Jingle Balls (each leg) then lunge walk back to the other side where we did 25 Pickle Pounders (some guys call this practice).

Fellowship mosey back to the start where we did announcements (Christmas Party), prayer requests (see my list, add to it if something is left off) and COT.

It’s cold but when we push the rock we get warm. Keep pushing the rock men! AYE!!!

3rd F – December 4

Proverbs 4

Get Wisdom at Any Cost

Listen, my sons, to a father’s instruction;
    pay attention and gain understanding.
I give you sound learning,
    so do not forsake my teaching.
For I too was a son to my father,
    still tender, and cherished by my mother.
Then he taught me, and he said to me,
    “Take hold of my words with all your heart;
    keep my commands, and you will live.
Get wisdom, get understanding;
    do not forget my words or turn away from them.
Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you;
    love her, and she will watch over you.
The beginning of wisdom is this: Get[a] wisdom.
    Though it cost all you have,[b] get understanding.
Cherish her, and she will exalt you;
    embrace her, and she will honor you.
She will give you a garland to grace your head
    and present you with a glorious crown.”

10 Listen, my son, accept what I say,
    and the years of your life will be many.
11 I instruct you in the way of wisdom
    and lead you along straight paths.
12 When you walk, your steps will not be hampered;
    when you run, you will not stumble.

13 Hold on to instruction, do not let it go;
    guard it well, for it is your life.
14 Do not set foot on the path of the wicked
    or walk in the way of evildoers.
15 Avoid it, do not travel on it;
    turn from it and go on your way.
16 For they cannot rest until they do evil;
    they are robbed of sleep till they make someone stumble.
17 They eat the bread of wickedness
    and drink the wine of violence.

18 The path of the righteous is like the morning sun,
    shining ever brighter till the full light of day.
19 But the way of the wicked is like deep darkness;
    they do not know what makes them stumble.

20 My son, pay attention to what I say;
    turn your ear to my words.
21 Do not let them out of your sight,
    keep them within your heart;
22 for they are life to those who find them
    and health to one’s whole body.
23 Above all else, guard your heart,
    for everything you do flows from it.
24 Keep your mouth free of perversity;
    keep corrupt talk far from your lips.
25 Let your eyes look straight ahead;
    fix your gaze directly before you.
26 Give careful thought to the[c] paths for your feet
    and be steadfast in all your ways.
27 Do not turn to the right or the left;
    keep your foot from evil.

Pray for Tesla, Hipaa, Defib, Sarlaac, Volt.  Lift these men and their families.
