1/11/2023 – Mt Olympus – Carry Yourself with Pride

PAX: Fun Dip, Double Dip, Boss Hogg, Busser, Schrute, Sun Dance, Ditty.

QIC: Invictus

Weather: 35 deg, not a lot of wind. 

This was going to be my first Q down in Sarpy and I had a great time putting the beatdown together (more on that later). As always for my Q’s, 
I skipped pre-run to set up and get my mind right before leading this morning. 

0445 – Pre Run – Multiple groups let and came back before the beatdown.

0515 – QIC kicked off the morning with the description of F3 – Fitness, Fellowship, and Faith. 
       Five Core Principles – Free, Open to ALL Men, Always Outside, Lead in a rotating fashion, and Ends in a Circle of Trust. 
       Credo – Leave no man behind, but leave no man where you found him. 
       The Mission of F3 is to Plant, Grow, and Serve small workouts groups for the reinvigoration of male community leadership. 
       There were no FNG’s present, nonetheless, QIC noted he was not a fitness professional so the PAX should modify the workout as needed.

Warm-o-rama – Parking Lot

15 SSH IC, 15 Imperial Walkers IC, 10 Big Ones, 15 SSH IC again to keep everyone warm.

0520 Pre-Thang: Mosey to Large grass strip 

2-man grinder: first PAX does bent over rows while the runner goes up the grass to the transformer, does 2 burpees, and then runs back to relieve 
their partner. We did this for 5 mins before the first OMAHA.

0525 The Thang: Mosey to the football field for a TCU Football tribute beatdown. PAX broke up into 3 groups.

Groups 1 and 2 started at each station while group 3 pushed around the field; jogged the shorts and sprinted the 100 yds down the field to relieve the
PAX at the TCU Football station who then pushed to relieve the PAX at the Duggan coupon station. We cycled through this for 20 mins before OMAHA was
called and we carried our coupons back to the flags.

CSAUP on 1/28, bring canned food to Site Q’s or day of.
Prayers: Papio werstler who lost their grandmother who was close to a lot of people, our PAX Mr Deeds who needs as much support as he can get within F3,
our PAX DOA’s family who all dealt with health issues at the same time.

COT: The main thang this morning was a tribute to the TCU football team who made it to the national championship game besides getting slaughtered. However,
your YHC wanted to place special emphasis on the love and support that the team garnered through out the season. I started with a quote from TEddy Roosevelt: 
“IT is not the critic who counts or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is
marred by sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again,…so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew
neither victory nor defeat”. TCU was a Cindarella story since the season started back in September. We were not selected to finish very high in the Big12 however, 
we were regular season champs and became the first Texas team to make it to the college football playoff and win a CFP game. Even after getting blown out in the 
championship game, reports and local newspapers had nothing but good things and positive tributes in regards to the players and coaches. This was due to the fact 
that they carried themselves with pride the entire season and never let success or fame get to their heads. Max Duggan, TCU QB, became a local hero coming from 
Council Bluffs from the standpoint that he played with passion the entire season and always supported his players even in the losses. My message for the PAX this 
morning was to always carry yourselves with pride in everything that you do and you will reap the rewards 10 fold. Experiences are complete not only during victories 
but also in learning from defeat.

YHC concluded the morning with prayer.

Aye! – Invictus
