The Ranger's Tent | General Chatter

Recommended Posts

camp write up

 

 

And in the “aftermath†(as it were) seeing so many new “friends†on facebook, and this â€ª#‎CNF365‬ tag that keeps popping up. So many people with renewed vigor. So many new goals. So many new PR’s. So many people trying new things because of courage found at camp. Truly we learned how to conquer our inner demons. Whatever they may be they hold us under their power NO MORE because the rebellion has our back. We met new nerds and branched out and learned that the world is maybe not as scary as we thought it was. And even if it is scary, we learned that we aren’t alone. There are people who have been on the same trail we are on. Some are ahead of us and will reach back and pull us up when we get to the parts that are too steep or difficult so that we in turn can help those behind us. Some are right next to us on the trail and are compatriots and they understand our struggle and they are a sounding board for frustrations and they are our cheerleaders and our support. They are our family! But we know now that we aren’t alone in REAL LIFE it’s not just images and words on a screen. We learned that it’s OK to reach out to strangers and that amazing things will happen when the rebellion amasses.
And we know that the best is yet to come.

Until next year (and all the years after) my friends

Hammi, don't you think we should charge the newbies a few burpees (or something) for a spot in the tent?? Are initiation fees allowed, or is that hazing? ;-)

(Shadri, we would of course love for you to join us)

Awesome!!

 

A couple challenges back we had a mini challenge with a lot of burpees.  One of rangers (Jennifer Stark)  was sneaking them in at work and calling them "ninja burpees." You were doing a ninja workout :-)

Heh. Considering I'm teaching in a Japanese high school, that's extra funny.

So after wondering round the farmland I finally find the Rangers tent. Looks like I should have reaved a couple of the landlords black angus. You lot look like you need some Aussie grass fed beef.

It was.... I don't know. Good and bad, mixed together.  

 

I got a surprise early birthday present (a laptop, yaaay!) and did a lot of nothing as well, relaxed, went to church, and was extremely productive on the homework front...

 

...but I also twisted my knee (I say twisted, because it was similar to the sprain I got about a month-and-a-half ago, but less severe; like a twisted ankle?), so I wasn't able to complete my workout challenge for the week. Ah, well. It's mostly better now, anyway; like I said, it wasn't very bad. (At the very least, I twisted it towards the end of one of my workouts, so at least I was able to get something in before I injured myself!...)

One day of fasting, one day of officiating at a childrens' party for about fifty children ages 1 -7 who (mostly) spoke no English. 

 

So, exhausting. Good news, though, was that I got a bodyweight workout (with a double helping of squats) from all the updownupdown and kid-wrangling.*

 

So I'm excited about a nice restful workweek! :D

 

 

 

*Okay, "Devil's herd" is perhaps an overstatement.

Same here!! I played Destiny for about oh, maybe 16 hours total :D

 

Surprisingly productive, in both housekeeping and leisure. Best part was the afternoon by the river!

Excellent! Wish I had a decent river by me.

Yay for the laptop! Always love new tech gear :D

 

Hope your knee feels better :-/ no fun!

Hey eveyone! Sorry I have been MIA, things have been crazy busy at home and I just didn't have the time to stop to check in and cheer people on...which made me feel really bad. So I vanished for a while, but my Ranger family hasn't been far from my mind. I have been working out and keeping things fun. I hope everyone's challenge is going awesome!

 

much love 

 

Rote.
