QIC: En Fuego
This time last year, YHC and several PAX gathered at Westeros to celebrate YHC’s 11-year wedding anniversary. 8,760 hours later, it was time to do it again, celebrating 12 years, or for those keeping count, 105,120 total hours of pure marital bliss.
0530 arrives, we disclaim and then mosey throughout the parking lot up to the field, stopping at four different points to perform a set of 10, 5, 1 and 20 diamond merkins – celebrating the 105,120 hours with some diamonds.
Huddle up for some WOR – where we knock out 12 each of the following:
B – BBSU
L – LBAC F/B
I – Imperial Walkers
S – SSH
S – the blissful Scorpion Stretch
YHC then informs the PAX of the 12 years, 144 months celebration and off we go for the…
Any successful marriage begins with finding the right partner, so that’s what we do. Then, 3 rounds of exercises focusing on the numbers 12 (years) and 144 (months).
Round 1: Start at bottom of Bernie Hill; Partner 1 begins to knock out 144 burpees while Partner 2 Bernie Sanders to top of Bernie Hill; perform 12 hand-release merkins at top and then back to bottom. Flap-jack until Partner 1 and 2 have collectively knocked out 144 burpees, and pause along the way during the hand-release to take in a beautiful IIIP sunrise.
Round 2: Mosey to playground. Partner 1 begins to knock out 144 Steve Irwins, Partner 2 runs down the stairs to the roundabout and performs 12 dips. Flap-jack until collective 144 Steve Irwins reached.
Round 3: Mosey to far end zone on the field. Partner 1 bear crawls to the 20 yard line, performs 12 iron mikes. Crawl bear back the 20 yards. Partner 2 is knocking out jump squats. Flap-jack until collective 144 jump squats performed.
Five minutes on the clock. We line up for rounds of 60 yard sprints with a set of Mary in-between sprints.
Time called and anniversary party officially over. PAX put in the work, knocking out the above exercises while traversing 1.65 miles worth of AO.
During COT, YHC issued an AO challenge that each of the fine PAX boldly accepted. We discussed Ephesians 5:25 -> “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and give himself up for her.” There is no more selfless, no more sacrificial love than Christ’s love for the Church. Further, this verse in and of itself is not an ask that we love our wives in a similar, selfless manner, but rather a mandate. So, our challenge, and certainly for YHC during anniversary week, is we must a) perform one completely random, selfless act of service / kindness to our wives this week and b) report about it on Slack – to keep us encouraged and accountable. And of course for each PAX that doesn’t complete the above, there may or may not be an AO penalty to kick the gloom off next Tuesday.
Honor to have led and appreciative to live out the gloom with each of you
