The Q that wasn’t

    • When: 3/16/18
    • QIC: Ponytail
    • The PAX: Padeye, Samurai ®, Freon, JAG ®, Blueprint, The Big Fundamental, Ponytail ®

6 HIM’s of the Rock Region unfartsacked themselves to join YHC for a bootcamp workout (or so I thought).  YHC decided that the plan headed into today was that with many PAX preparing for the P200, that we would stay in the parking lot today for a good old fashioned style workout.  YHC had prepared an epic Q (at least I thought it was pretty good), but it was not meant to be.  At the appointed hour the PAX gathered for the warm-up and several were geared up for a run to get in a few more miles.  I looked around the group and we all kind of nodded and said sounds like a plan, so Omaha it was, bootcamp scrapped and we were going to run.  After some light stretching, YHC planned out a quick route in my head and we were off.


The Thang

We headed out of the AO and went up Cherry Road and toward the Winthrop Coliseum and did a lap around the building, heading up the ramp and back down towards the lake.  It was dark so I was glad a few PAX came prepared with adequate lighting & reflective gear (always be safe out there).  Next we did a lap around the lake and then ran around the outside perimeter of the coliseum and headed down Eden Terrace.  For you regulars that run out here regularly take note the running/biking path is being resurfaced so it’s pretty tore up at the moment, lots of rock and clay and dirt.  I’m sure it will be nice soon.  Anyway, we headed down Eden Terrace and enjoyed each other’s company, taking great care of the six.  Several guys were able to squeeze out some extra distance by doing so, great job by all.  YHC took a peak at the watch and our time together was drawing to a close so we turned right on Charlotte Ave. and jailbreaked back to the AO.  Altogether, we got in varying distance of 4 to 5+ miles.  It was a very pleasant cool morning and the mumble chatter was epic.  Once back at the AO, YHC shared that the word of the month is Prepared and with many PAX preparing for the P200, YHC shared the following verse

1 Corinthians 16:13

Be on the alert, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong

All too often we lose sight of things we can’t control, like what’s in the mind of the PAX heading into a workout, but we need to prepare, control what we can control, and be the men God created us to be.  Be leaders at home, in your church, in your community

Today was a great lesson and reminder for me to prepare but be flexible and not take things too seriously.  Work hard, get better, improve daily

We closed with announcements, prayers & praises

I’m always honored to lead and today was no exception.  Thanks Blueprint for your leadership at this AO and for allowing me the opportunity to lead today.

Ponytail out –
