The clock hit 5:30 and there was a heavy mist in the air.  I had a weinke ready to go, and a deck of cards as a “just in case” backup.


  • Side Straddle Hops, 15 IC  –  2 merkins
  • Imperial Walkers, 16 IC  –  4 merkins
  • Moroccan Nightclub, 20 IC  –  6 merkins
  • Don Quixotes, 15 IC  –  8 merkins



The mist seemed to be letting up so I tossed the deck of cards aside and we set out on a mosey down Catawba, left on Oakland, left again on W. Central and there on our left is our favorite wall by Ida Rankin Elementary School…  can’t pass it by without a little work:

  • 5 incline merkins and 5 derkins
  • 10 incline merkins and 10 derkins
  • 15 incline merkins and 15 derkins

Mist had picked up a bit so let’s mosey over to the covered walkway for some 11’s:

  • American Hammers & Lunges  (Q kept trying to do American Hammers at both ends…)

It seems the mist has let up again, so it is time for some four corners. We were to run around the parking lot and do the following exercises:

  • 1st corner – Merkins
  • 2nd corner – Squats
  • 3rd corner – LBCs
  • 4th corner – Mountain Climbers  –  do SSHs while waiting on the six

First round… give me 5 reps… next round 10, then 15 and then 20
Q decided to run his mouth a bit here… in Matthew we find the Sermon on the Mount where we get the Beatitudes and a lot of what were called “hard sayins” when I was growing up. But he had to come back down that mountain and so do we… so back down we went with our four corners… 15 reps, 10 reps and 5 reps.

The clock was ticking, so time to mosey on back to the middle school. When we got to the school the Q had to run his mouth just a little more… see, as Jesus was wrapping up these hard sayins, he left us with this in Matthew 7:24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.” The key phrase for me is “put them into practice.” Many hear, few put it into practice. The HIMs of F3 inspire me every day as I see them putting their fitness, their fellowship and their faith into practice! I encourage you to go read Matthew 7:24-27 to get the whole story.

We said the Pledge.

Ended with COT!

I hope we all went away just a little better…
