18 HIM came together for Runday at Badlands. Thanks to brother Penguin it now includes a ruck option! The message was to enjoy the slow build. Often times while tracking a goal we forget that we have ups and downs along the way. The reality is as long as you keep putting in the effort the slow build is working and you will progress much further than you thought possible.

The Thang – Today I challenged the runners with trying to achieve negative splits. I had a one-mile loop planned out with the thoughts of running 4 miles non-stop with each mile being faster than the last. Everyone must have been excited because that first lap was much faster than I anticipated. However, we kept the body moving and I think most of the guys ran their last mile faster than their first. Mission accomplished.

COR, NOR, Announcements, Prayer Requests. We all continue to pray for the Heisenberg family as they mourn the loss of a truly great man, and celebrate his life and the fact that he now walks alongside the father.

Great work men!
