Shelter of Satisfaction

YHC was sitting on the couch last night, enjoying the gunfight in Open Range. Great scene, 2 dudes fighting for what they believe in, taking revenge for a couple of friends, and winning the girl at the end. Kind of like my life story but that is a story for another day.

Towards the end of the gunfight, a text popped up. A text from my good buddy, Cheers. As always, this stud wants the Q so he can take part of the fun when he cannot make it to the Shank. Well, YHC came up with a quickie and sent it to him. It stuck and is what was used today…for the most part.

The alarm went off at 4:30 and the rain was pouring outside. YHC decided to skip SL. 4 studs did the harder thing and posted for SL and got in solid miles. YHC was a wus, these guys shoed what F3 is all about. Accountability even when the weather sucks. Next time, fellas, there will be 5.

Weather – actually not bad. Rain stopped and temps were perfect.

1 minute warning, disclaimer, no FNG’s, open in prayer.

Mosey around 2 parking lot islands and circle up where we started.

COP: SSH x 20 IC, Michael Phelps x 15 IC, TTT x 10 IC.


A shelter workout was planned to keep us from rolling around in the swamps. Music was provided but having a speaker would have been better. The goal was to get as many rounds of the following completed before it was time to disperse back to our home/work lives.


5 hurpees

10 merkins

10 decline merkins

10 incline merkins

10 box jumps

10 iron crosses

10 bbsu’s

10 v-ups

10 dips

10 prisoner squats

Lap around 2 parking lot islands.

Rinse and repeat until time called.

Quick circle up in the plank position while 1 pax did 10 merkins (go around the circle for all to partake in the fun).


Mosey to the virtual flag for the fourth time since Christmas.


Buffalo Run – end of January

Thirsty Thursday – D2D legs assigned at Krafty Draft this week. Show up early or you get leg 11.

Prayer requests:

Shake-N-Bake – family (Dad in particular)

Hot4Teacher, Cheers/Ashley, others fighting cancer

Lego – anniversary of Dad’s passing

Close in prayer.

Devo:  Had a discussion with one of my sons recently who is struggling with to do in life. The aged-old question…What is God’s will? Well, the verse in Ecclesiastes 12 came to mind – This is the whole duty of man. Fear God and keep his commandments. We often complicate life when God keeps it pretty simple.
