Backblast Brickyard: Celebrations

4/29/22. Brickyard AO | Stinson Park

10 PAX:  Bloodshot, Betamax, Ice T, Folsom, Polaroid, Stella, Low Flow, Spacebar, Vanilla Ice, Slow Pitch

Q: Slow Pitch

Weather: A little cool, it rained the night before, so there was a tad bit of moisture in the grass.

Slow Pitch showed up right at 5:00 and the one pre runner (Stella) had already taken off. This was good because the Q wanted to go over his workout plans with himself since it was his first time Qing at the Brickyard. He doesn’t like coupons and neither do most of his body parts, but when in Rome, bring them along.  He ran over to a few locations doing all the exercises that he had planned and concluded that they could be completed, so it’s a go.

Eight Pax arrived a touch before the start time and then there was a couple stragglers (Ice T and Folsom). Either way the made the morning better.  We went over the mission statement, the three F’s, the five core principles and that Slow Pitch wasn’t a professional. We were doing some running in place while this was going on…and away we went to warmarama.

COT: My 3 years in F3: Wednesday marked 3 years in F3 for Stella and me. I spoke with Stella earlier in the week and his path was very similar to mine. Went to a workout once, then twice then every day, then pre runs and it’s been non-stop since. In the 3 years I’ve been in F3, there have been countess positive moments. If I were to count, I would bet I’ve been to over 900 workouts and listened to that many COTs. There have been below zero degree and 90-degreemornings. I’ve thrown up, I’ve laughed, and I’ve cried. I don’t show up because I like to workout, I show up because I like you and I am grateful you guys are here every morning. Thank you for helping me have a better life and I’ll probably see some of you tomorrow!

Prayer by Polaroid.

Grateful to sit with you and laugh this morning! – Slow Pitch
