Sandlot Q (Running AO)

Thursday March 17th 2022 – Happy St Patrick’s Day

Halleck Park

53 degrees and beautiful

Long Drive to Halleck Park from out West but the 24 minutes was worth it.  As I came up to the site it was neat to see several of the Steel Mill PAX getting situated for their Q.  I stopped over to check in and wish them a Happy St Patrick’s Day. I then headed back over to the parking lot to wait on the pre-runners finishing their 3.5-mile run (Swiper, KOA, Farva, Jean Claude and 8 mile)

PAX: Zoro, Farva, Jean Claude, Knobbs, KOA, Baby Shark, 8 Mile, Ear Tag, Swiper and YHC (Cheap Seats)

Cheap Seats welcomed 9 HIM to the Sandlot.  Gave the mission statement, disclaimer and Credo.

The great thing about the sandlot is it’s a great running AO so the PAX took off running and headed to Halleck Dr to heads towards downtown Papillion.  The goal was to get 4 miles of running into today with a couple stops along the path.

The group ran 0.8 miles to the Pedestrian Bridge in downtown Papillion and ran up on the bridge to complete the first of 3 mini beatdowns:

Mini-beatdown 1 was a crowd pleaser – The PAX lined up on the bridge and completed the following: 1 merkin, 1 groiner, 2 merkins, 2 groiners, 3 merkins, 3 groiners, 4 merkins, 4 groiners, 5 merkins, 5 groiners, 6 merkins, 6 groiners and then went all the way back down until we got to 1 merkin and 1 groiner.

The PAX then moseyed 1 mile to the corner of Washington and Centennial Rd (just south of the Sanitarium) and completed mini-beatdown 2:

Mini beatdown 2 started out with 12 monkey humpers facing the Genesis Health Club, I mean seriously who pays to work out : )  Then we completed around the world merkins.  Each PAX did 15 merkins while the other PAX held plank.  We went around the world until everybody completed 15 merkins individually

The PAX then moseyed south back towards Halleck Park, a little over 1 mile to the intersection of Washington and Halleck Street.  Here we completed mini beatdown number 3:

Mini beatdown number 3 was pretty simple.  The PAX started out with rapid quick feet in place and we did 10 burpees on my command.  After completing this we moseyed back to the flags at the Sandlot

Several of the PAX had to make some small circles around the flags to hit our 4-mile goal

6MOM

We ended with 20 Sarpy slammers rancid style

Announcements Prayer Request

Knobbs did announce that Lucky Charms and his band would be playing at the corner of 180th and Q from noon to 4pm today.  Check it out.

Prayer requests focused on Tanner Farrell (recent teenager who was shot and killed).  We prayed for his soul and all the affected families.

We also found out the Paisley (ICB) daughter is doing well.
COT

My COT was short and sweet today.  I expressed my thanks and gratitude towards all the Sarpy brothers for allowing me to Q the Sandlot.  As I told Swiper during the run I respect and admire all the Sarpy guys.  I informed them that they motivate me to become better and better every time I work out.  Thank you, Sarpy Swagger.

Being it was St Patrick’s Day we did end on some St Patty’s day fun facts:

  • The Titanic was built in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
  • You may associate the shamrock with Ireland, but it actually has two national symbols – the harp and the shamrock. Ireland is the only nation in the world with a musical instrument as its national symbol.
  • Halloween has its origins in the Celtic harvest festival of Samhain that took place in Ireland at the end of the summer.
  • Ireland’s Patron Saint Patrick was not Irish. He was a Briton. As a teenager, he was kidnapped by Irish pirates and was forced to work as a slave herding sheep. He turned to God during this time.
  • The world famous Guinness beer is from Ireland. It originated in the Dublin brewery of Arthur Guinness, which wasn’t actually owned by the company, but rather granted a 9,000 year lease. (The company has since bought the famous St. James’s Gate Brewery.)
  • The longest place name in Ireland is Muckanaghederdauhaulia (muk-an-hand-ra-do-dauter-hal-i-a). It is a 470-acre townland in the civil parish of Kilcummin in County Galway, Ireland.

Lastly, I surprised the PAX with some Guinness Beer for their reward today.  We all shared a Guinness and coffee with our Steel Mill friends across the way.
