Just another Saturday and another workout at the original F3Gastonia location……Gashouse.  I had announced on Friday that this was my last Q before turning over the Site Q reigns to Linus so I wondered who would have the guts to show for a little Forrest Gump action……well, a great group showed knowing good and well we might run a little.  Great crowd showed for Mayor’s Pain Lab also.  Another humid morning.  Time to get after it.

No FNG’s.  What would we do?

Let’s start with 5 burpees OYO…..that’s right…..I called some burpees.

10 Imperial Walkers IC

Pledge

Split the group between the bootcamp and pain lab.  I was very happy to head off for the bootcamp after glimpsing Mayor’s torture chamber set up.

Mosey to the upper picnic shelter inside the train tracks (exactly 1 mile from the Schiele for those wondering) for some IC work:

That was so much fun we Rinsed/Repeated for a second set.

Mosey back to the Flag Circle at Lineberger Park for some Ring of Fire:

Time to start the mosey back toward the Schiele with the next stop back at the Baptist Church for more IC work:

Wait…what???   5 more burpees OYO……had to do it.

Final mosey back to the Schiele to catch up with the Pain Lab for some Mary:

Dying Cockroaches X 20 (where’s Bandit?)

Flutter Kicks X 25

Bells ringing – we’re done.

Time for a terrific impromptu ‘Passing the Torch’ ceremony as Linus takes over as Site Q.  I know that Roscoe spent many, many hours of prep into it.  It was quite moving.

Announcements:  Convergence at Poston next Saturday; June 23 Grandfather Mountain hike/ruck; many great things happening in F3 Gastonia Region.

Several prayer requests; COT prayer

The Moleskin

I appreciate once again the opportunity to lead a workout at Gashouse.  I’m also grateful for the opportunity to be the Site Q at Gashouse for the last couple of years.  At the same time, we need to remember the purpose of F3 is to invigorate male leadership in our community so it’s imperative that we allow others to take on leadership roles such as Site Q’s.  I am looking forward to following Linus’s leadership in the coming year.  I hope I have set a decent example.

Until the next one.  Aye!
