It was a beautiful, cool morning at the downtown Dallas metro AO. The FRC crew went out of their normal jurisdiction to invade the northern territory for a longer run than normal. It’s race season so errybody seems to be getting in runs when they can. When the appointed time came, there were 7 PAX willing to take the DRP including Rolex who was making his 3rd workout since his FNG post last Friday at Slaughter’s beatdown. Gator made it up for his first Dallas workout too! This is what happened…

Warmup of Goofballs IC, Merkins IC and The Patented Right Over Left IC

By this time there was a Ford truck that came plowing into the parking lot like he owned the place. Site Q Wirenut had decided to grace us with his presence. Thanks for making it to the workout!

Mosey around the corner to the fired department driveway for the Pledge of Allegiance and something else.

Mosey again, this time to the half circle drive at the old courthouse for The Thang

Semicircle Funtime – Do 10 Merkins, whatever the Q decides that gets us from start to the next position where we do 20 Squats and then sprint down the sidewalk to the original starting point.

First we bear crawled the semicircle, which Mayor made sure to emphasize that I don’t know how far that is. Actually I did, that’s why we did it. Some of us added 20 Monkey Humpers at the nadir of the semi to break it up because it’s really, really far. Thanks Mayor!

On the next round we did Karaoke L, then the next one was Nur and then Skips. Along the way, YHC asked individual PAX what we had done so far, some wanted to detail the entire workout including number of reps, others just focused on the different portions like Karaoke or Nur. Good conversation.

We also explained to Rolex that one of F3’s motto’s, along with “Always Be EHing, is “Leave No Man Behind, but Leave No Man Where You Found Him!” Aye!!!

YHC decided to switch up the first exercise to 20 Def Leppard Merkins (CDDs) and 30 Monkey Humpers at the other side. For the semicircle distance we did Nur again, Butt Kickers, High Knees and finally Karaoke Right for Buckeye.

Fellowship mosey over to the courthouse stairs where we bear crawled up (easy) and down (hard) the other side, then walked backward up and down the stairs.

After reading a memorial plaque that adorned one of the light poles nearby, we moseyed to the gazebo for Lazy & Selfish Dora 1234. No partner needed for this one and we stayed in the same place. We did 50 Big Boy Situps, 100 Dying Cockroaches, 150 Freddie Mercury’s and 200 LBCs. Well, the enhanced mumblechatter and general slack natured approach to so much ab work led YHC to cut out most of the Freddie Mercury’s and switch to 150 LBCs. Some of us did these…

Mosey past Pizza Man’s old homestead to the start. We had a few minutes left so we did some Step Ups IC, Dips IC, Plank IC and then more Dips. Time, thanks for the opportunity to lead men, it was my pleasure!

Prayer Requests – Sparky,  Turtleman, Mayors kids because his M is out of town, Broke’s broke leg, Our Country, The world

Announcements – Convergence next Saturday at The Yank, Community Foundation Run April 9, Adopt A Highway cleanup April 16, 2nd F lunch at Ray Nathans THURSDAY April 21, Honey Hunters game Sunday April 24

The strong showing of east side guys who make their way up to Old School today is a good reminder that we can meet new guys and learn a lot by getting out of our normal routine and going to other AOs around our region. Keep pushing the rock men and Always Be EHing!!!
