As Everest so eloquently put on Twitter late Monday night…”It’s raining so it must be time for #Fenceline.” Although, Everest didn’t join us on this adventure, he’s been there in the wet gloom many times before. However, a dozen men made it for the gap in “weather” to get some exercise in. I thought when Man-eater said “See you Tuesday” and added some music requests that equaled a HC. Nonetheless, the pax gathered around the shovel flag and jammed to Nelly Furtado – Man-eater in his absence.

0 FNGs present, we moseyed off, tunes in tow. A brief mosey landed us on the basketball court for the W.A.R. And at some point J-Love graced us with his presence. He doesn’t really need a warm-up anyways.

At the conclusion of W.A.R. pax were instructed to partner up and grab a resistance band per group. Pax then moseyed through the school to Sunset Drive and ended up at the intersection of Sunset, Country Club, and Hamilton.

The Thang

4 way run – Sunset (uphill) Hamilton (flat-ish) Country Club (uphill) Sunset (flat) Runs varied from 75-150 yards. 1 Burpee was done at the midpoint. Each leg was run twice by each pax. Partner A relieved Partner B (depending on your point of view)

Once all of the exercises and runs were completed by each partner, pax were dismissed to the upper school area for some more work. Pax sure were eager to leave…somehow JR and YHC were the 6 (can’t be true)

  • Pamela continues to be a sleeper amongst the pax. Not just in fitness but across all the Fs. #inspiration

  • TPS was back at the #Fenceline and as strong as ever
  • J-Loves strength cannot be matched or contained (by high strength rubber) #mandown #banddown


  • Pamela’s praise for his wife’s scan results – came back negative
    • Pamela was a true leader taking on that immeasurable challenge in his family’s life with humility and trust.
  • 3rd F following at Search. Bird’s Nest did a great job leading us through Chapter 15 of John and what it looks like to prune our life towards the Lord’s will.
  • Service opportunity this Saturday. Bird’s Nest oldest son is leading a food drive for Backpack Beginnings. It is a Sports Clinic serving Soccer, Volleyball, and Field Hockey for 3rd -6th graders. 3:30-5:30 pm Greensboro Day School. See the flyer in SlumLord’s email.


Wicked took us out with a profound pearl. Amazing gifts and challenges found in our lives are blessings!

Aye! It can’t be spoken enough what a pleasure and treasure the #natville pax are and this platform bestowed upon us.
