QIC: Room Service – VQ
Room Service greeted the 19 PAX, shared the F3 mission statement and disclaimer. Since temps were horrible, the PAX moseyed to the parking garage (winter quarters) up to floor 2 to begin warm-a-rama.
SSH – 30 IC
Tater taps (side to side) – 12 IC (why 12…WHY NOT!)
Finkle swings – 10 IC/leg
Sun gods – 10 IC forward/10 IC backward
Cherry pickers – 15 IC
After Warm-A-Rama the PAX lunged up to level 3 where they were greeted with a Crowd Pleaser (1 merkin : 1 groiner) went up to 5:5 and then worked their way back down to 1:1. At this point, hands were beginning to warm up
Next the PAX side shuffled up to level 4 where they performed 20 merkins, now that we were at the correct altitude we began the thang
The PAX counted off in groups of 4 and began each station, after Room Service misplaced his compass the PAX were eventually directed to the correct corners of the garage:
|Station 1||Station 2||Station 3||Station 4|
|Merkin – 15||Hand Release Merkin – 15||Werkin – 15||Carolina Dry Dock – 15|

|Calf Raise – 30||High Knees – 20 IC||Jump Tuck – 15||SSH – 20 IC|
|Side shuffle to 2||Side shuffle to 3||Side shuffle to 4||Run to 1|
Next, the PAX moseyed outside to pay tribute to Mary.

COTRoom service shared a quote he grew up with, it has been attributed to Albert Einstein but was prevalent throughout his life as it was a beautiful 1970’s cross-stitched piece of work his mom had created. The saying goes: Learn from yesterday, live for today, dream for tomorrow. It is a simple reminder that the Q uses from time to time to stay on track. Living for today seems easy but at times can get lost and days go by with just going through the motions. As for dreaming for tomorrow, there is still time and I encourage everyone to go out and chase what they are passionate about. We have been blessed with able bodies and able minds, so take a chance.
