Death by BURPEE

AO: > LavaField

QIC: > Lumbergh

A balmy damp day at the LavaField, 3 PAX entered the gloom only to exit from death of the burpees. Didn’t take long after the warm up to ditch the long selves and for the first time in weeks, show off their guns! It’s a great day to defeat the fartsack.

Today my share is simple, this thing that we do here each Saturday, each beatdown is a tool to be and become better men. That said, the world we are facing today isn’t an easy one, arguably the hardest times my generation has faced. I’m here to tell you that in this moment, ‘IT’S OK, TO NOT BE OK’. It’s acceptable to be overwhelmed, struggling, unsure, out of control…

We are hear for each other, we must share with each other where we are in this season of life (and everyone moving forward). Carrying this burden alone, may lead to the walls falling in. I won’t let that happen. While this may not describe you and your season, it might be for your M, your shorty, your neighbor, mom, dad, brother, boss, employee, pastor…the darkness of depression can seep into any crack. Be aware, be vigilant brothers, be positive, be a light, and if you are unable to do so find one, ask for one, share your darkness.

As my guy Angus likes to say, and I share it with pride, if you haven’t heard this today or enough lately, I love each and everyone of you. And most importantly, remember our mantra

“Leave no man behind, but leave no man where you find him.”

The great Leader knows that If his love is not great, then neither will be his leadership.


There will be no Christmas beatdown at our AO’s, we will be offering some EC following the Saturday BD at the LavaField on the day after, encouraging everyone who can, to join us.

As we approach the new year, I want everyone to think of at least one person to invite out to a beatdown, our goal for January is 5 more to give it away to!

Remember –> Plant, Serve, Grow.
