The Mayor made me do it

9 HIM showed to the craggy lot at the bottom of the park for some Folsom action. It was a perfect day for a beatdown, so let’s get it on! This is what happened…


10 burpees OYO. The Mayor made me do it.

Don Quixotes x10 IC

10 burpees OYO. The Mayor made me do those too.

Pledge of Allegiance

Mosey Indian Run style to the field beside and line up for Bear Crawl Slalom. You guessed it, the Mayor made me do it! Some of the guys hadn’t done this one before so it was lots of new fun! We did a couple cylcles through the line and moseyed on to the smooth parking lot at the other end of the field.

The PAX gathered together to hear the directions for BLIMS. After each exercise, mosey to the other end of the lot, so back and forth.

B – 5 Burpees

L – 10 Lunges each leg

I – 15 Imperial Walkers

M – 20 Merkins

S – 25 Squats Hold on a minute! Isn’t there supposed to be a P in this routine? Yes, but why would Mayor ask me to leave out the P in this routine? Actually, he didn’t. YHC was writing up the weinke too late at night and the P was just forgotten. No worries, we caught it before it was skipped and we kept rolling to the end by doing 25 Plank Jacks and  then 30 Squats. Plank for the 6.

Mosey across the street to the lot near the pond for BLIMPS!!! This lot was longer than the first one so there was extra burn to the mosey part. Plank for the 6. Volt decided to make sure Mayor was doing his fair share by sitting on his back during plank. GOOD

Fast mosey to the really rough lot further away for the next thang. BLIMPS!!! It was at this point that Westside offered to help with picking. Maybe next time. This session was really great. Plenty of sweat was shed.

Mosey down the sidewalk to the tennis courts for 11’s. Do 10 Big Boy Sit Ups, Crab Walk to the other end of the court and do 1 Jump Squat, then NUR to the start. We did LBCs until the 6 finished too.

For the last few minutes we did Karaoke Left to the other end of the courts. Then Karaoke Right. Then Skip to the other side and last we NURed back to the start.

Mosey back to the original lot for a round of Bring Sally Up. Most everybody whined about how long the song is. Sounds like some of y’all need to HTFU!

Announcements: 2nd F Lunch this Wednesday at Sammy’s in Dallas, CSAUP

Prayer Requests: Turtleman, Huckleberry, PAX on IR, Chad McGhee cancer

All joking aside men, it was a pleasure leading today. We had plenty of high quality mumblechatter and we all enjoyed ourselves. I think… Aye!!!



Apocrypha Time

The Sword is a great way to start a Monday

This morning verse was in the The Book of Wisdom verse 1-2:

Love righteousness,* you who judge the earth;

think of the LORD in goodness,

and seek him in integrity of heart;

Because he is found by those who do not test him,

and manifests himself to those who do not disbelieve him.

Save the Comma, Save the World

10 HIM’s got out on a nice Sunday morning and got a little better. Most stayed for Q Source on the topic of Language.

It was an amazing discussion.  We solved most of the worlds problems by the use of proper punctuation.  If you have never gone through Q Source or if it has been a while, get out to Crossroads. You will not be disappointed.
