YHC grabbed an open Q spot that was just asking for a leader…and a specific leader…one who would bring a lot of points to PAX participating in #F3MayChallenge. A cold snap came through in the night, granting my M that “one last cold front” before spring is skipped and summer comes roaring in! A Cousin Eddie downranger, Seaman joined us, which was fantastic!

PAX began with an easy jog around the parking lot. Part to see if any late comers wandered in and part to ensure at least 1 mile running was achieved for points!!
PAX circled up for:
SSH x 20IC
String rippers x 10IC
Sun Gods x 10IC forwards x 10IC backwards
and mosey up the pavilion and onto the baseball diamond for…7 of diamonds WOD.

A total of 7 rounds in which PAX would circle the bases on the ballfield, stopping at each base to perform the required exercise at the prescribed number of reps. Each round was OYO, however PAX held Al Gore to pick up the 6 before proceeding as a synchronized group!
7 x burpees
14 x BBSU
21 x merkins
28 x squats
21 x merkins (The groaning was chants of joy, I’m pretty sure…)
14 x BBSU
7 x burpees (I believe “oh goodie” was the winning complement)
Mosey back to the flag for…

American Hammers x10IC

For those counting: 112 BBSU; 224 Merkins; 1 mile run.
Keep reading your Homestead book!
Friday is Flo’s birthday celebration 1730@ Timnath Beerwerks. Come out and celebrate.
Sat. is “Fire and Ice” CSAUP in Denver. Contact Dry Rub if interested.
Next week is the Shovel Flag handoff for Swanson!! Come see which leader steps up.
Celebrate Ricky Bobby and his M, who are expecting!! Prayers toward Spinal Tap’s cousin, who is struggling with addiction. In my prayers and thoughts I said the following on those two items:
– No one person is out there is the perfect person. Don’t look for them for a spouse (if you find one that you think is perfect, you’ll soon find 50 things they need to work on). Instead, you find someone you want to be with for the rest of your life. And TOGETHER you make each other as perfect as possible as you walk towards Christ and as you become family, you as a unit will come to represent the Church and Christ (Bride and Bridegroom), which is perfect. May your family be blessed, Ricky Bobby!
– God does not put things in our life that we aren’t supposed to handle. We can’t possibly understand why injuries, addictions, suffering, or bad/good luck comes to us. However, we need to pass through these trials in order to advance, survive, and grow through struggles. May Spinal Tap’s cousin be surrounded with pillars to lean on and may her struggles bear fruit and she come out the other side a better person full of life! Amen.
