The BackBlast:

I had my head buried in tax returns till after 11pm and realized, I need to get something together for my 5:15 Q. By the time I put something together, it was 12:30 am. Lesson learned, start a day or two before.

After a few hours of hard sleep, I was up at 4 am and out the door by 4:30. As expected, the adrenaline helps keep you from feel groggy. Arrived at The Wood @ 4:45am. Easy setup up. Four Stations on the drive and Two cones beyond the 4th station, one close and one a little farther out.

5:15 – Let’s get the party started:

Disclaimer, I am not a professional, I do not know of any injuries. You have come of your own free will and should know your limits, modify if you need to.

No FNGs but I thought it a good practice to have the Pax called out the 5 Principals.

Leave no man behind, but leave no man where you find him reminder.

Rinse & Repeat

I think all Pax made it back to the 2nd station again, some were in beast mode and made it to station 4. Thinking bout the 3 doors down song, if I could be like them!

Mary:

Leg lifts

Scissor kicks

American Hammers

20 seconds of star gazing

Merkin ring of fire

Impromptu COT

This was my 2nd Q, made me think about 2nd chances and how F3 supplies them, especially for me. That led me to think about how we only know some our F3 brothers slightly if at all and we need to reach out and engage all of the brothers in our region.

Just recently I was troubled by what I thought was a brother struggling a little bit, internally. We need to reach out, go have that drink when you really do not want to. You never know what the come out and have a drink request really means behind the scenes. I ask you consider reaching out to other brothers on slack and make small talk and get to know them.

Prayers for the Pax for coming out and for the requested ones that really need them, we really are blessed.

Amen!

Observations;

It was a good day! Thanks to the 10 Pax that came out, you are the best! Thanks to Soccer Mom for having my 6 and supplying support and confidence! Coffeteria, thanks to Hanger for supplying the coffee.

Shout out to Dilly Dilly, always there before the Q, getting in some miles, makes me want to do more! Shout out to Wreck-it Ralph and Storm Chaser, coming out when NOT 100%, inspirational for sure.
