tags Murph Monday
22…yes, 22 HIM showed up this morning to complete the Marine Corps physical fitness test at #murphmonday.

PAX: @Tiny Dancer, @2Buck, @Bogo, @Cosmo, @Dipstick, @Dizzy Gillespie, @Foosball, @Ginsu, @Heidi, @Hot Mic, @Joey Freshwater, @Kwame, @Pancreas, @Sully, @Timeshare, @Mulligan, @Fertile Myrtle, @Snooki, @Third Wheel, @Operation, @Pre-K, QIC: @Three’s Company

The test consisted of:
1. dead hang pull-ups (AMRAP before dropping off the bar)
2. Abdominal Crunches (AMRAP for 2 minutes)
3. Timed 3 mile run.

This was a great way to kick off the first Monday of the year, and we were all able to officially set a baseline for some of our 2021 goals. We left with plenty of room for improvement, but everyone gave maximum effort!
We are planning to do this again halfway through the year, and again at the end of the year.  Start NOW on your plans to improve and don’t wait until the next one rolls around. 
COT:

-Continued healing for @Rudolph – we miss you bro!

– @2Buck. Official last day of work for the company he’s been with for 19 years.  Prayers for what God has next.
Moleskin: Psalm 46:10 “Be still and know that I am God.”
Make sure you are listening to God in your prayer time, and not just only going through what is on your mind and agenda. He already knows all of that stuff anyway.  Spend some time being still and reflecting on what He might be trying to tell you.
When my mind is very cluttered during prayer, I will stop and do “4 by 4s”, which is 4 deep breaths, counting slowly to 4 on each inhale and exhale. I also have to do these when I’ve been around @Kwame for an extended period of time. 
Guys I had a blast this morning, and I can’t wait to do it again. Thanks so much for the opportunity to lead!
