26 HIM took that DRP and posted for a run-heavy workout that -ahem- ran long, primarily due to an excess of Q-drenaline inspired by YHC’s 1-year F3 anniversary.
QIC: Cunning Linguist
PAX: Bad Boy, Bareback, Bicentennial Man, Cooties, Crablegs, Crawlspace, Dewey, Dinty Moore, Duplex, Dutch Oven, Firefox, Hambone, Hi-Viz, Lunch Lady, Macaroni, Money Snake (FNG), Napster, Pop-A-Lock, Porcelain, Pumpkin Spice, Reveille, Right Said, River Dawg, Studio 42, Vector
Disclaimer: Disclaimed per usual. BLUF: Don’t sue me or F3, there’s no money in it.
Mosey from shovel flag to “The Nip” for WOR:
This totaled 72, as in the 72nd b-day of the US Air Force (which occurred about 10 days ago).
As the US Air Force has played an integral part of my life, I shared this celebration with the PAX.
We then moseyed (in near-full-gloom) toward the top of McCabe Hill” for Activity 1 of THE THANG:
Burpee Mile: 12 burpees every 1/4 mile or so.
We stopped two times (so half a mile in) then I whipped out a surprise at the bottom of McCabe Hill:
Jacob’s Ladder: Mosey to bench, drop for 1 burpee, then to bottom of hill and back to the top for 2 burpees. RnR up to 7.
Al Gores upon early completion, which raised questions about the “Chair Force.”
Jokes – we sure got ‘em, don’t we?
Countdown from 30 to 1, then mosey along for our continuation of the Burpee Mile (which we effectively completed as a group).
At this point, it was suggested that we may not make it back to the shovelflag in time. I scoffed – after all, we *always* finish on time, right???
Feeling the beatdown set in, we all dropped for Activity 3:
18 LBCs OYO
And on we moseyed to the gazebo. At which point, we stopped for some early Mary (as YHC was about to Splash Merlot):
10xAlabama Prom Dates
Then, realizing that we were NOT going to return to the parking lot in time, YHC called an AYG to the shovelflag.
All in at ~0619, which was, while not dreadful, still late. YHC needs to get better with respecting the time of others. It’s true.
Well, THAT was a learning opportunity. YHC has no excuse, other than an overabundance of Q-drenaline. YHC needs to work on reining that in and apologizes to the PAX of Bomber today, and while it WAS a celebration of sorts, today’s workout also served as a reminder that the Q is not infallible. YHC is a flawed human being, and as such, there is room for me to grow and learn from this experience.
-Prayers for continued healing of Pumpkin Spice’s injuries.
-Welcome to F3, Money Snake!
10/29 – Libeery at Fat Bottom Brewery in the Nations. Book is “The Three Big Questions for a Frantic Family” by Patrick Lencioni. If you read it, great. If not, you should still probably show up to Libeery for some high-quality fellowship.
