5 Fleming Island Pax posting in the mild gloom of Bifrost on YHC day 2 of his trifecta Q week. YHC thought to himself as he prepared for his VQ at a run AO, what better way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day than with a lesson on the US Government? Hence, YHC led the pax to Capitol Hill (or what the locals call Doctor’s Lake Bridge).
As we learned from School House Rock, a bill first needs a majority vote in the House and Senate before going to the president for his approval. Currently that means 218 votes in the House and 51 in the Senate. Therefore…
- 18 burpees at the base of the bridge
- 26 SSH at the top of the bridge
- 18 burpees at the base of the bridge on the other side
- 25 SSH at the top of the bridge
- Early finishers wagon-wheel back for the six
Of course, even if it passes the Congress, the President must still sign the bill for it to become law. Unfortunately, our bill was vetoed, so now it’s back to the hill in attempts to override that veto. A bill needs 2/3’s majority of both houses of Congress in order to override a presidential veto, and they have only 10 days to do it. For that to happen, these Congressmen need teamwork to get their bill through.
Partner 1 runs to the 2nd light pole and back while Partner 2 does exercises. Cumulative exercises as follows:
- 67 merkins
- 291 LBC’s
Pax were challenged to complete this routine in 10 minutes to give us time to return to the parking lot. Mission accomplished!
YHC talked about believing something higher than yourself. Someone close to him is struggling due to loss of loved ones and feels that God is singling him out. Life is hard enough when things don’t go your way. But when one thinks outwards- lives for others instead of himself, when you hit a rough patch, you are better able to sustain and get through it. When you are self-centered, all you can think about is how your rough patch affects you, instead of having a setback that you must overcome so you can continue to serve others.
- Prayers for the leaders of our country
- Prayers for safety of those celebrating (and those around those celebrating) St. Patty’s Day
- Lord’s Prayer
Thank you, men for allowing me to lead.
