FUTURAMA BACKBLAST: Positively Omaha’s Longest Grinder

9/26/2019 | Futurama AO | Memorial Park

PAX: 24 – Honey Stinger, Polaroid, Swinger, Betamax, Chiclets (Respect), Pony Express (Hate), Honey Badger, The Plague, Gumbo, Rice-a-Roni, Brazilian, Twin Peaks, Safe Ride, Blue Suede, Toadstool, Smashmouth, Sparty, Firewalker, Gunner, Clorox (Hate), TC (Respect), Bubbles (HATE), Slow Pitch, No Doze

QIC: No Doze

Weather:  55.  Mosquitos out in full force.  As always, perfect weather when YHC has the Q.

YHC arrived one minute late for the pre-run.  Had to make the loaner minivan boogie to make it just in time before the rest of the pre-run crew made its way east on Underwood.  T-claps to Plague, Sparty, Smashmouth, and Firewalker.

Mission statement, credo, and disclaimer were given to a “record” number of Pax. Moseyed down to the esplanade for Warm-o-Rama:

  -SSH – 25 IC – run up the stairs

 -Hillbillies – 15 IC – run down the stairs

-Moroccan Nightclubs – 15 IC – run up the stairs

-Tappy Taps – 10 IC

-Bobby Hurleys – 10

Moseyed back to the esplanade where Pax formed groups of 3 for The Thang:

A traditional 3 man grinder.  Pax 1 did AMRAP exercises at the wall, Pax 2 ran to relieve Pax 3 all the way to the south on Dodge Street.  YHC had eight exercises planned for each station, but it’s roughly a quarter mile from the wall to Dodge . . .  AMRAP merkins while waiting for partners to run half a mile makes up for calling “Omaha” on half the Weinke, amirite?

Wall – AMRAP all exercises

1. Modified Happy Jacks –10SSH/2jump squats – repeat

2. Plank Jacks

3. Merkins

4. Burpees

5. Mountain Climbers

6. Smurf Jacks

6 MoM:  None – you were warned.

COT:

          -Name-o-Rama  

-Announcements/TAPS:  YHC always forgets these, but his memory was triggered in middle of the prayer/BOM.

          -2nd F Tonight at 6:30 – Wild Kingdom AO – Piezon’s Pizza following

-YHC let it be known that his COT message is usually something that I need to work on, but it hopefully helpful to the Pax.  I’m naturally more of a half-empty glass kind of guy . . . so I’ve used several Q’s to focus on positivity.  Relayed messages from two positive thinkers of some renown: 

-The new kid in class is an opportunity to make a new friend. Q. Richards

-“To become a happy person have a clean soul, eyes that see romance in the commonplace, a child’s heart, and spiritual simplicity.” N.V. Peale       

Encouraged Pax to use new experiences as opportunities, to spread positivity, and to work on having a positive outlook.

-Closed with a prayer/announcements

-Coffeteria at Crane. 

Aye!

          -No-Doze
