• When: 2021-09-21
  • QIC: Soaker
  • The PAX: Coon Dog, Dunphy (R), Garth (R), Hash & Rice, Xanadu, SoakerBurp

Burpees + Tunes = Fun

YHC had a plan to keep the pax dry. The forecast looked nasty but, much to my surprise, the rain held off until the final recover was called. This allowed for some nice jogging which we will get to a little later. The Q was changed 15 minutes before bootcamp started and, if I say so myself, I nailed it.

Music was provided and it was a solid song selection. CCR, Craig Morgan, Eric Church, Bon Jovi, Jon Pardi, Locash, Clint Black, Hank Williams Jr…not bad. 

Coon Dog provided the feedback throughout the workout. Without him, I would have thought I had the perfect Q, but thanks to my pal, I know it was far from perfect. YHC will hit up the Q sheet and try again. Thanks, Coon Dog.

Garth posted following his first team event in F3, the 9/11 Smokehouse Challenge. Party on, Garth. Looking forward to many future events for you.

Dunphy posts sans vest. Does it really count as posting if our resident real estate ninja does not wear extra weight? Atrophy is setting in those real estate arms. Time to beef up, D.

Xanadu came back out. Awesome to see a newbie post and fit right in with the gang. This guy cranks out burpees without complaining. Let that be a lesson to some of the regulars who posted today.

Hash & Rice did his thing in his own way. He was cruising through the workout until simple multiplication stumped his brain. 10 x 6 = 60. Pretty simple, H&R. You’re a stud but Einstein you ain’t. I am jealous of your truck though. Straight up trade any day.

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

Closing prayer.

Devo: The story of the prodigal son is a favorite. I was reading about it again, earlier in the week, and came across this statement: Jesus gave us this parable to let us know no matter what we have done, we can always come back home.

Awesome statement and encouragement. Keep praying for others to come home and return if you are out wandering. Never OYO.
