The Final Challenge!!

Well it is here. The final challenge, and it was a good one. The challengers had to fill a hole 10' X 10' X 4' deep with dirt then once that was finished they then had to take over 5 tons of rock and thro them into a a Brinkman Truck. Now that I made it sound simple, let me put things into prospective. It took them 1 hour and 30 minutes just to get the dirt put into the hole and then another hour to get the rocks on the truck. To say the least they were a little tired but it was well worth it.

Brinkman Pools and construction sponsored this challenge and I want to thank them for it and their generous gift to all of the challengers.

The week that wasn't

This week there was no challenge. This week was a week for giving back to the community. As you can tell Pewaukee is really under water and we decided to go and help with the clean up. My prayers go out to all that live in that area and all of the other areas that have been flooded.
Next week is the final challenge and we are looking forward to a great time. Stay tune for next weeks activity.

5K Yellow Brick Road Run

Well this is the event that they have been waiting for. All of the challengers ran in their first 5K (3.1 miles). The goal for them, as it should be for anyone who runs it, is to just not finish but do better than you did before. This race for these challengers is their first and they should use this as a benchmark for later races.
The challenger’s times were:
Sue 39:07 Mike 50:01 Kathy 42:16
Craig 50:01 Donna 40:19 Tina 46:48
Doreen 40:35 James 36:07 Mat 28:47
Cindy 26:14 Richard 42:15 Jon 41:00
Nicole 53:05 Vicky 38:10

Many of the challengers have asked me about an exist strategy and now this is when it begins. In my next few blogs I will be giving them some ideas that they can use for the rest of their adult lives.

The two pictures are of Cindy and Sue (the birthday girl). Congrats to you all for your beginning accomplishments.
