To borrow a phrase from the movie THROW MAMA FROM THE TRAIN – "The night was moist." Such was the closing of YHC's birthday week. Seems like the PTC Town Center's getting a little busier, so this was one of the last times we'll be able to blast the music and sweat. So, with a playlist that covered each decade the Q's been on going around the sun, the PAX met at the dodecahedron (funny looking, many-sided) jungle gym, and we were off.

One youngster and 3 well-preserved PAX = the need to warm up properly. Thus…..
12 Weedpickers
12 WIndmills (Abe Vigoda speed)
15 Little Baby Arm Circles
12 Hillbillies
12 SSH's
Mosey around town green

1. Killer B's (Burpees / Big Boys / Bonnie Blair's) done in an up/down ladder of 5-10-15-20-15-10-5 reps. One lap around the town green after each superset. Mary for the 6
2. Dry Humps – sets of Carolina Dry Docks with Monkey Humpers, done in a ratio of 1 CDD to 2 MH's (1 CDD/2 MH, 2 CDD/4 MH, etc. all the way to 10/20)
3. 11's – mosey to the patio, Step ups with LBC's
4. 5 full minutes of Mary, including Gas Pumpers, American Hammers, Dying Cockroaches, Shoulder Taps, and Flutter Kicks

Held up prayers for:
Wingnut's best friend's family (healing from a car accident and dealing with the tribulations associated).
Dinghy's friend's father (entering hospice, that he is as comfortable and peaceful as possible as the Lord prepares to call him home, and grace and peace for his family)

Hopefully, this morning's BD was suitable penance for the scheduling SNAFU from last week. I again think back to where I was this time last year for my 51st birthday (physically, spiritually, and socially), and I am in a vastly different place. As I found last week while downrange, F3 is a powerful movement, and whether you're leading a BD for 20 Pax or 4, the accountability factor to: a) Show up; and b) Be prepared to lead a challenging BD creates physical and mental muscle strength. SOOOO grateful to several F3 brothers for that invite right around my birthday last year, as it created that nudge to get out of the comfort zone and MOVE. Keep passing that gift on, brothers!
