PAX: Fine Print, Obi Wan, Tardy, Crab Cakes, Cadbury, Billboard, Sasquash, Cannonball, Cheap Seats, Barn Door

Q: Barn Door

The alarm was set and I was excited to meet Cheap Seats early for a longer pre-run to help him hit 100 miles for the month. Well, morning arrived and I found out I overslept by an hour and would not be joining Cheap Seats. This is a rare occurrence for me but somehow happened twice this week, both on days that I agreed to meet Cheap Seats early to pre-run. SORRY Cheap Seats!

Since I was late, I just walked around the site and set out my exercise sheets and lights and waited for more PAX to arrid.

10 PAX arrived at the Flags and heard the Core principles, Mission, credo, and disclaimer.

We stayed right there in the parking lot to jump into Warm-a-rama which consisted of 15 IC each: SSH, Tappy Tap, Imperial Walkers, and Cherry Pickers

The THANG #1

We completed the following exercises at the basketball court.

  • Arms: Derkins – 20
  • Legs: Squats – 20
  • Body: Blockees – 20
  • Arms: Overhead Press – 20
  • Legs: Rifle Carry around Splash Park and back

The THANG #2

We moseyed over to the other parking lot and complete some non-coupon exercises.

  • Cardio: Mt. Climbers – 20 IC
  • Core: Flutter Kicks – 20 IC
  • Cardio: Plank Jacks – 20 IC
  • Core: Freddy Mercury – 20 IC
  • Cardio: SSH – 20 IC

The THANG #3

We moseyed back over to the basketball court to complete more coupon work.

  • Arms: Curls for the Gurls – 20
  • Legs: Coupon Squat Thrusters – 20
  • Body: Block Swings – 20
  • Arms: Bent over rows – 20
  • Legs: Squats with jump over block – 20

We proceeded to rinse and repeat, so we headed back to the parking lot to complete the core/cardio exercises. We still had a little bit of time left so we went back to the basketball court one more time. We got through the first two exercises and the Site Q decided to ask YHC if my watch was broken. YHC announced the next exercise was Blockees since we still had some time left and were welcomed to groans by the PAX. “Omaha” was called before any Blockees were performed and we rifle carried the coupons back to the shovel flags for Mary.

6MOM consisted of:

  • 2 rounds of Rancid style American Hammers


  • 5 years anniversary at Oracle on April 22nd.
  • June 17th, 5K for Ava’s Army, 10am @ Stinson. See Billboard for more details.
  • Bovine leading last Q at Ironwood before he heads back home to run the family farm.


  • Mulligan’s mother in law passed away.
  • Praise for Obi’s father in law going back home to finish recovery.

Circle of Trust:

Viktor Frankl – Author of Man’s Search for Meaning:

You control your future – “A human being is not one thing among others; things determine each other, but man is ultimately self-determining. What he becomes – within the limits of endowment and environment – he has made out of himself.”

I’ve been presented with many opportunities in my life where I could have easily made the wrong decision. Many times I did make the wrong decision and am lucky things didn’t end up horribly. But there are also many times where I made the right decision. With my families history, I could easily be an overweight alcoholic right now, or even in jail for doing something stupid. I’ve decide to make better decisions though to purposefully try to avoid following the family history. I made the decision about 3.5 years ago to come out to F3 because I knew I needed to get in better shape. Little did I know it would turn into me getting in the best shape I’ve been in since High School, Gaining close friends in my SL as well as many others in the Gloom, and thinking differently about how I eat (most of the time).

I am thankful for every single PAX that continues to show up and push themselves and me to get better in all aspects of their lives.

Obi Wan led us out in prayer.
