Can anyone count?

After our latest weather change, the pax awoke to 19 degrees, YHC is pretty over the cold by now…And so it began.

QIC: Squirrel

The Pax:  Dockers, CPT D, Mad Bum, Little Warrior, Striker, Aruba, Scout, Guinness and Neo

THE THANG: We began with 21’s, a 2-count Side Straddle Hop (SSH) where the QIC starts the count through 5.  The rest is mental; goal – everyone stops together on 21.  Since there were a few Pax who missed the mental part the following penalties were awarded; Penalty 1 – 10 Burpee’s, Penalty 2 – 10 Burpee’s, Penalty 3 – 10 Burpee’s, Penalty 4…..

Move to the far edge of the field: Lunge walk across field, 40 Iron Mikes, Lunge back across field, 20 Squats, 20 4-count Nancy Kerrigan’s. Flapjack

Mozey to the playground: 20 Swerkins while partner does 20 Merkins, switch places, 30 4-count Long Slow Flutter, 40 LBC’s, 20 4-count Rosalita’s, 20 WWII Sit-ups, 20 American Hammers, 30 Freddie Mercury’s

To the wall: 20 4-count incline Merkins, 20 LBDs, 10 4-count Derkins, 20 LBDs, 10 Merkins…it was supposed to be 20 but the QIC couldn’t hang!

At this point a couple of the pax were a bit punchy!

To the courts: Hold Al Gore while each pax gave a 10 count….then relax, 20 4-count Long Slow Flutter, 40 LBC’s, 20 4-count Rosalita’s, 20 Heels to heaven, 6” hold, Hello Dolly’s, 45 degrees, Hello dolly’s, 6” hold, People’s chair while CPT and Neo discussed the finer points of Time Bandits

20 Hillbillies & 20 Imperial Walkers, Mini Chesto, 10 Groiners OYO

Dockers led the men out with an outstanding prayer!

MOLESKINE: Given the constant noise and bashing in the today’s world we need, more than ever, a place, a Circle of Trust (COT), to be vulnerable.  We each have our own journeys, insights and stories, and this COT, this group of men, holds one another up in good times and bad.  We use stories from our own journeys, laughter, insights and wisdom.  We glimpse our soul through the eyes of our brothers.  We are challenged to claim/reclaim our own story.  How do the F3 Sandhills Pax do it?  They combine an unconditional regard for one another, create space for friendship, encourage one another and hold each other accountable. In this space…this F3 Sandhills…we can hear our own truth, become self-critical about our faults (because they will be pointed out), and take the risky steps toward positive change!
