Sandlot 31-Oct-22 (Redwood Series)

Its not what we did so much as it is why we do it, but the work is below the Moleskin.  When I was asked to take the Q for this series (although I am not a Redwood original, just old) and I was asked to give some information on what some takeaways have been.  When I first started, I was definitely a sad clown, but I remained that way for some years until I had an injury that changed my perspective on life and wasn’t taking it seriously.  I realized I had the tools in front of me the whole time.  I decided to become a pro and not be a mascot.  With that said, I am very mindful of what kind of leader I need to be and where I fail.  My tone and attitude set the pace for others around me so learn from your mistakes.   Invest time and take Q source seriously.  There are three locations around the area.  The more you give, you more you will receive.  Find a shield lock, but be mindful and make sure you commit and they are committed.  Practice good form and don’t worry about being at the back.  Hold everyone to the standards.  10 good squats and a run at the back is better than 10 bad ones.  The form sets everything up.  Be a leader and get uncomfortable taking on leadership roles (Q’s, site Q, call three burpees like whoopee does for more work, etc.).  Most importantly, is make sure everyone knows they can count on you and whatever you say to them is coming from a place of love, nothing else.  Your word must be impeccable.


Flagpole for Pledge

  1. Free of charge (zero cost, never charge for a workout)
  2. Open to all men (no matter the man, you are welcome)
  3. Held outdoors (rain or shine, heat or cold we are out there)
  4. Peer led (led in a rotating fashion by the men who attend)
  5. End with a Circle of Trust (always ends with a COT)

Light crowd at The Sword this morning, I guess the rain scared a few guys off.


Filled in with the Q for Huck and we discussed Psalm 130:1-8 and the importance of being honest about where we are , who we are and who God is. Be thankful for all you have, you are forgiven and accepted by God.
