The Maize Backblast: #OrangeForDarth

Darth VisorThe Maize AO | Copperfield Park | October 4, 2018

Temperature: 44 | Cool Breeze

PAX: Waffle House, Roll Bar, Thunderhead, Crab Cake, Dufresne, Hard Hat, Wait Time, Daniel San.

QIC: TC

TC welcomed the PAX in the gloom in a true demonstration of a High Impact Man.  Late last night, TC had a disagreement with a ladder, and quite possibly broke his foot.  No ladder would prevent TC from kicking off the #ORANGEFORDARTH “Hands of Time” tribute.  After covering the F3 Purpose and Disclaimer, TC honored Darth Visor from the Alpharetta PAX, and asked that we all support and pray for his fellow brothers of the gloom.  On Tuesday, Darth Visor collapsed during an F3 workout and later passed away at a hospital.  In DV’s honor, the PAX wore the orange of his favorite team – the Clemson Tigers.

TC chose the “Hands of Time” because we are reminded that our time on this planet is limited and we must be intentional with how we use our time and lead our lives.  Therefore, the timer for “Hands of Time” was a station in which the PAX did a reverse lunge and counted 10 important blessings in their lives.  After the PAX named the 10 blessings, the group rotated to the next station.

With that introduction, TC turned over the workout to members of the PAX and prepared to have his foot x-rayed.

WARM-A-RAMA

Wait Time led the PAX in a mosey to ETHANOL’S HOUSE for Warm-A-Rama.  Hoping that the Warm-A-Rama sends positive vibes to Ethanol as he is on the IR.  It appeared he was up early despite not being able to workout.  Daniel San wanted to knock on Ethanol’s door, but his older, wiser PAX said there’s nothing to gain than waking up a battle-tested war veteran and his young family.

Warm-A-Rama required INSIDE VOICES in the drive-way and included:

SUN GODS | SSH | MOUNTAIN CLIMBERS | DON QUIXOTE | COPPERHEAD SQUATS

The PAX quickly warmed up in the cool temperatures that were 45 degrees colder than yesterday’s weather.  After Warm-A-Rama, we moseyed back to the football field for THE THANG.

THE THANG: “HANDS OF TIME HONORING DARTH VISOR”

REVERSE PLANK w/ 10 GRATITUDES | MONKEY HUMPERS | CAROLINA DRY-DOCKS | MERKINS | RANGER MERKINS | LOW SLOW FLUTTER | WERKINS | BIG BOY SIT-UPS | PICKLE PUSHERS | MOUNTAIN CLIMBERS.

The PAX completed two cycles of the “Hands-of-Time.”  The THANG ended with:

5 BURPIES OYO | PARTNER MERKINS x 15 | PARTNER ANKLE GRABBERS x 20

The PAX moseyed back to the shovel flag for 6 MOM.

Each member of the PAX chose a core exercise for an extended 6MOM:

DYING COCKROACH x 25IC/Waffle House | SWEAT ANGELS x 15IC/Roll Bar |

COT/Announcements:

Fund-raiser for “Wheels for Jakson.”  Roll Bar reminded the PAX about the fund-raiser for Jakson.  Roll Bar is challenging F3OMAHA to raise $2000.  If we reach our goal, Roll Bar will wear a pink tutu to the Oracle workout!  You can send the donation via the following link: Roll Bar will start tweeting out updates on the goal.

PRAYER.  Wait Time closed out the workout with a prayer of comfort for the Alpharetta PAX and Darth Visor’s family.  May we all strive to lead an important legacy beyond our days on the planet.  We pray for healing of those on Injured Reserve – Ethanol and TC among others.

Grace & Peace,

Wait Time
