We found ourselves with 16 men at 5:29am and we had no Q for the workout. At that point everyone cheered and said “Everybody loves Gastone, why don’t you take the Q”. I quickly obliged all the requests, it would have been hard to turn down.

At this point I let a couple people do 10 counts.

Frogger across Franklin and then Mosey to Code Enforcement Parking lot for some Mary. (Almost lost Easy Rider and Bulldog to a sprint but as they started they happened to hear me say everyone to the parking lot for 6 minutes of Mary).

Mosey back to the start.

The Moleskin:

I am sure Spiderman had a plan for us but his alarm clock was on the fritz. It was 5:30 so someone had to take the Q so I jumped in with cheers from the crowd as I did this one. Some of my favorite comments were “We are only 20 minutes in”, “I won’t be able to walk today”, “I plan on sitting all day so I don’t need to walk”. These just give me energy to even make the workouts more fun. Whoopeee tried to knock me off with the crazy count but it was like rain on a windshield bouncing off after a good wax job. We had an FNG and he was a warrior and handled the workout like a champ, welcome  Reed Jentsch will now be known as Malfunction.

Prayer Request’s: Hunter Stubbs and Helen Hayes passed this week, please keep them and there family’s in your prayers. Prayer request for Bob from Whoopee and Pray for Easy Rider’s friend having surgery.

Ball of Man: Executed by the Q walking to the middle of the circle and all men trying to get a hand on him and someone else. The a prayer is completed by the Q or the person of his choice. This is also done while standing but your head in a prayer position. All hats would be removed or you would be reminded to remove them.


Thanks everyone, it is always an honor to Q. You guys are all great and I could not be luckier to know all of you,

Gastone Out!
