YHC had no problem getting up for this workout. The wind was howling all night. I said a little prayer before I left the house. Lord you are King over all the wind. If it be possible and your will calm the winds in our area so we can get a good workout. It turns out, the winds calmed immediately at my house, all the way up until I left the house. Are you kidding me? True story.
It turns out, I forgot the importance of praying continuously. By the time I got to the AO, the winds had picked up again. None the less, the Lord provided strong winds for the added benefits of our workout.
