Using this random card deck shuffle generator: http://random-cards.com/1-shuffled-deck/
The PAX settled in to Kenny Rodgers and the Gambler via Bluetooth speaker committing to doing the # of Merkins that the luck of the draw revealed…
  • Numbers = their value (2=2, 8=8, etc…)
  • Face cards = 10
  • Aces are only 1…however they require a quarter mile jog around the track.
  • If any PAX falls behind the required number of Merkins we all take a recovery break with another lap around the track.
All told, we followed Salt-n-Peppers command to “push it real good” for a total of 340 Merkins! We also completed 1.75 miles with 7 laps around the track!


Each of us has an invisible bucket. It is constantly emptied or filled, depending on what others say or do to us. When our bucket is full, we feel great. When it’s empty, we feel awful. Each of us also has an invisible dipper. When we use that dipper to fill other people’s buckets — by saying or doing things to increase their positive emotions — we also fill our own bucket. But when we use that dipper to dip from others’ buckets — by saying or doing things that decrease their positive emotions — we diminish ourselves.
