Q: Safe Ride
On a cold, rainy Thursday morning Safe Ride welcomed the PAX to F3 Omaha at 5:30am. He recited the Mission Statement and Disclaimer of F3. We’re here to plant, grow and serve small workout groups for the invigoration of male community leadership. Safe Ride reminded everyone that he is not a professional and his workout is merely a suggestion. Modify as necessary. The Celebration then began.
The PAX moseyed from the shovel flags, down the stairs, to the landing area. Once at the location, the following exercises were performed:
- SSH x 20 IC
- Dips x 25
- Sun Gods x 10 forwards, 10 backwards IC
- Mountain Man Poopers a/k/a Ponzis x 15 IC
- Dips x 20
The PAX moseyed from the landing, down the sidewalk, to Dodge Street. Once there, we had to show the drivers on Dodge Street how F3 Omaha parties. By the way, it felt like traffic was particularlybusy this morning. We started with 20 Monkey Humpers IC, then 20 Pickle Pushers IC, and finally 20 Oh Yeahs IC. Now it’s a party!
The PAX moseyed up the hill to the roundabout. Safe Ride originally had planned to have HIM split into four groups. 3 groups were to perform exercises AMRAP style at three different stations while a fourth group ran around the circle to relieve group 1, with each group pushing the next. Given the smaller number of manly dudes today, and Safe Ride’s awesome playlist keeping the PAX stay entertained, YHC audibled and kept everyone together. That resulted in changing the exercises from AMRAP to 20 reps for each exercise. Once the 20 reps were completed the PAX moseyed to the next station as a group, with the exception of Rooster who sprinted his way around Futurama like a damn gazelle. In any event, the exercises performed at each station were as follows:
Big Boy Situps
Safe Ride called Omaha at 6:09am as the PAX made their way back to Station 1, about to complete the second round of Monkey Humpers. The PAX then moseyed back to the shovel flags.
Safe Ride was engulfed in his sweet musical playlist so he didn’t catch much mumble chatter. However, Polaroid may have made a crude comment regarding Safe Ride’s cadence during the pre-thang. There were also several nods of approval for the tunes from a few of the PAX. Gracias, gentlemen. The playlist for a beatdown is a work of art and it’s gratifying when the PAX shows their appreciation.
None because this is Futurama, baby! Although, Beta Max pointed out that Safe Ride may have simply implemented Mary into the Thang. Safe Ride can neither confirm nor deny that such a plan was concocted.
- Saturday we have a 9/11 tribute ruck at Memorial Park beginning at 5:30am.
- Prayers for the Westside school District, Rockbrook community, and the family who recently lost their son to suicide.
- Prayers to all the families impacted by 9/11.
Safe Ride read the following quote from writer, Wayne Dyer: “Stop acting as if life is a rehearsal. Live this day as if it were your last. The past is over and gone. The future is not guaranteed.”
This quote is not always easy to live by. However, it’s import to strive to live each day to the fullest. Try to take a moment each day to appreciate what we all have in life. The fact we are physically, and mentally, capable to getting up each morning to exercise with fellow HIM. The fact that we may have spouses, children, family, or friends to rely on and take care of. The fact that we may have jobs that provide for our financial well-being. The fact that we are all standing here. Breathing in and out. We are alive, gentlemen. Life is a precious gift and we should not waste it.
Tomorrow is a day a remembrance for all those lost during one of the most terrifying days of our lives. Nineteen years ago, 2,977 people lost their lives. All our lives changed forever that day as well. However, we should continue to try to live life to the fullest. It’s the only one we got and we don’t know when this party is going to stop. So, let’s celebrate while we have the time to do so. Aye!!
Othello took us out in prayer.
Go Carpe that diem!
