Thirsty Thursday Backblast: A (Mile) High Impact Man

What is a High Impact Man?

In the dictionary, there is a picture of Curds.

Would you see him at the front of the PAX or the back?

Sometimes both. Curds is a great Q and even greater encourager for the 6.

How do you give him a proper send-off to the Rocky Mountains?

Three Q’s. A hillside beatdown. The Happy Dance by Pharrell Williams. A shovel flag, an Irish Prayer and a heavy dose of Fellowship.

AO – Area of Operation

The park. Stinson Park.

QIC – Workout Leader(s) in Charge

Bluegrass, Wait Time and Selleck.

The Scene

A comfortable 86 degrees with a little shade under the trees on the hill.

F3 Welcome and Disclaimer

Shared mission, disclaimer and you vs. you / no-ego / form failure philosophy (including the power of the push-up from the knees modification).

Mosey over the crick for warm-o-rama.

Group worked very hard with lots of groaning and some grunting. Then mosey back to the flag for the Happy Dance.

Hold plank while listening to Pharrell Williams, Happy. Merkin on happy. Burpee on happiness. Impromptu singing, groans, and grunts. Attempts to call Omaha were denied. The Pax dropped in their places and did the Mary.

Announcements

Abide event went well. Curds was presented with an F3 shovel and signed flag from the PAX.

Prayer

Wait Time gave the Irish Blessing. And we celebrated the next chapter of Curd’s journey at Pauli’s.

May the road rise up to meet you.

May the wind be always at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face;

the rains fall soft upon your fields

and until we meet again,

may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Aye!

Bluegrass
