PAX: Red Skull, Hot N Ready, Big Ticket, Gussy, Biscuit, Satchmo, Bruh Bruh, Teddy, Lil Tony, Can’t Get Right, Fallout, Claud, Life Champ, CAPSLOCK, Bagger Vance
Quick Mosey out of the gate to the lot behind the STEM center only to find out there are some brand new consumers of Fossil Fuels in the way. No worries, head around the building and to the upper lot with the dumpster.
Circle Up for WOR:
Two minute or so plank while YHC explained the grammatical terminology of a #Homonym and shared an #Example Weight v Wait. In true ATQ fashion, there was some choice language thrown in for Color.
All IC x 13
SSH, IW, Squats, Hill Billy’s
Partner Up in 1s and 2s and take a leisurely mosey around our loop for the day. Once the 6 was in we performed
Squats x 13, Merkins x 13, Flutter Kicks x 13 IC (had a couple of restarts to stress form) and to the building for Wall Thrusters (think Mike Tysons w/o the Merkin)
Run a lap
Jump Tucks x 13, Lunges x 13, Power Merkins x 13 (Crowd Pleaser), Ola Dolly (IC) x 13
Run a short lap
Skaters x 13, Lunge to Squat x 13, Atomic Merkins x 13, Reverse Thrusters x 13
Run a lap but go through the quad to the back of the building where YHC introduced two Firsts
P1 squats on wall while P2 performs Bulgarian Split Squat (P1 holding P2’s foot) x 13 ea leg
Holy Moley, there are some spare tires over here, why don’t we P1 v P2 in a spare tire tug of war. Lots of grit and heart out there, couple of bruises and some blood but a good time was had.
To the main Lot for the last lil Bit
Monkey Humpers x 13
Merkins, Dips, Merkins x 13
F Kix x 13
So, the idea of the Weight and the Wait has been weighing heavily on YHC’s mind as I wait on what the Lord has in store for me and my family and as I think about the Burdens we carry in this life.
Funyuns and I ran with Rob Jones last year as he was completing 31 Marathons in 31 Days in 31 Cities…First one was in London (Not Kentucky). Oh by the way, Rob is a 2x Amputee. Rob’s tag line his to “Use The Weight” and his story can be found at https://youtu.be/gq4IdUpxVYY …
We all have different Weights and we all carry them differently. The only thing I would change in Rob’s awesome message is that we all need a partner, a spouse, a friend and sometimes a Brotherhood to help us carry the weight.
As a man with a Christian worldview (and a Potty Mouth), I also think about the word Wait and what it means to me. Right now, I am waiting on the Lord to show me the way to my next career so that I may provide for my family. The life that has been predestined and ordained for me is one of waiting, Waiting on the Not Yet but Will Be, waiting on the Voice for the next step and Waiting on being reunited with all my Brothers and Sisters at Home.
Prayers up for Spicoli, for this Class of young men that they become HIM (High Impact Men) and that they change the course and trajectory of their lives and families. Spoke with Olan Mills today, his Dad received good news from his Doc yesterday.
