Ahh yes, another brisk below freezing morning for a downtown beatdown. Not to worry, YHC planned to keep the PAX moving to stay warm. I had drawn up a fairly nice Weinke, but after further review, I set aside that idea. Not that it wasn’t a good solid JV Q, but something wasn’t right. Some of you know that I struggle with anxiety, ADD, and OCD, that being said, my mind pretty much never stops churning. After a Roscoe Q downtown a couple weeks ago, I generated another idea for a Q. I know sometimes it’s hard for me to speak out what I’m thinking, but I feel like today all worked out pretty well. Yes, it’s below freezing and Turtleman is here!

SSH, Merkins, Toy Soldiers all X 10 IC
I count off for 7 teams of partners. If you don’t do that, then you’ll have teams like Sister Act and Slaw together which in itself is pretty creepy. Let’s mosey to 321 south and hit Main St. Leapfrog time; partner 1 performs burpees while P2 runs to the next traffic light, they start up burpees, soon as you see you partner start burpees, you run to tag them and drop to burpees. You get the point, but I believe there were 6 traffic lights total, but we end up at Broad street. Pick up the six, turn around and head back to 321. Same deal but with squats this go around. The idea of “seeing your partner starting their exercise then take off to tag” really didn’t go well. After all, the traffic lights were further away than I remembered so we improvised. About this time, Slaw was practically in my face just grinning and giggling for some reason. I believe he mumbled “train”. QIC claimed not to hear said train. All worked out and we turn around for what’s next.
From Roscoe’s Q, we use street lights this time. Lounge walk to the next street light, then nur to the next, then mosey to the next, repeating the rotation til we get close to the parking deck. I couldn’t help myself, so YHC calls for 5 burpees OYO to make up for the train. Slaw was beside himself. Mosey on over to the parking deck.(did I ever mention I love this place?)
This is where Dora came to play. Still with your partner, 100 Merkins, 200 squats, 300 lbcs while one partner climbs the stairs runs across the top deck and back down the stairs to trade off. PAX would plank with a little Pilates until all were finished, which wasn’t long. Men were getting it done this AM! Mosey back to start.
while I run to the car for my phone, Sister Act decided to keep the PAX moving calling 20 burpees OYO. Not to my surprise did anyone acknowledge him, asking “where’s the Q anyway?” Once back at the circle, I had to call it, but only 10. Turtleman throws in Moroccan Night Clubs for the remaining 30 seconds. Time!

Thanks for the opportunity to lead this fine AO. F3’s mission and you men are the reasons I get out of bed at 4:30 to do this crazy mess. Great to see us all working hard to push and help each other not only to get physically stronger, but spiritually and relationally stronger. Way to push men! Thanks again!
