The HardNocs Mile is back (more like 3 miles)…I remember the first time when Flo led this beatdown (always remember your first time) and it SUCKED. What better way to kick off an era of a new region than with a comfort zone crushing beatdown. 50/50 odds to finish. Each man pushed to their edge down the ladder and then as far up the ladder without dying as they could. Failure is okay; Quitting is not. 

YHC starts with a welcome and disclaimer. 19 PAX posted in what turned out to be a glorious foggy gloomy Saturday morning. Post-F3Jax Christmas Party, there were some calories and alcohol to burn off. YHC had worries about the copious amounts of baked beans the men at the previous night, but the show must go on. A new Nantan was in town, t-claps to Left Turn and respect shown to Saigon Sam as he moseys out to pasture as the Grantan. 

The energy was good so we jumped right into it.

“The comfort zone is a state where a man operates in an anxiety-neutral condition, using a limited set of behaviors to deliver a steady level of performance, usually without a sense of risk.”Warmup Exercises

Your either gonna give it everything you have and finish it or maybe barely fail but if you finish or fail with a lot left in the tank you’re doing it wrong. Explore your potential out on the edges.

“On the fields of friendly strife are sown the seeds that on other days, on other fields, will bear the fruits of victory” -Douglas MacArthurCOT

The definition of Misogi is doing something hard/challenging/a physical trial that you don’t practice or prepare for, there is a 50/50 chance you finish or fail and lastly, you can’t die. 

Today the men proved that they went outside of their comfort zones and pushed to the edges. 

Rom 5:3-5Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us
