Back from camp

The back ache has finally struck - the after-effects of Camp Transformation 2008.

You see, we had this interesting game where we pushed people beyond their limits by making them do a modified deathcrawl (clip below from the movie 'Facing the Giants') for an hour and a half. I don't have pictures of what we actually did, but I was one of the guys below and boy, does my back ache now.

Still, this was an opportunity not to let go of, because simply, the game is not so much physical as it is mental. One brother told me after the game: "I wanted to give up and just walk away because it was so painful. But then I looked at the person next to me and he looked to be in more pain than me, and if I gave up I would let the entire team down." Then he wept. There are few things better for building brotherhood.

On a lighter note, I have to be thankful for Yow Looi and Adam's kind advice and counsel throughout the camp. Many, many times difficult decisions had to be made and without their solid perspectives, we might have made the wrong ones.

If I thought I was tired, you should have seen Yow Looi right after the camp:

Yow Looi also didn't death crawl also exhausted?

Old age catching up?
