Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others. —Jack Welch
To command is to serve, nothing more and nothing less. —Andre Malraux
AO: OGAO a/k/a Long Leaf Park
# of Pax: 17
Pax: Top Cheddah, Hush Money, Zohan, Seahorse, Hahvahd, Caliseaum, Gump, Goober, Last, McFly, Chernobyl, Banjo, FNG (The Count), Busted Grill, Niles, Dixie Chick & Gravity.
Awaiting the preblast, I got anxious so I searched the Q Calendar and realized no Pax signed up to Q the OGAO, so YHC jumped back to the preblast channel to lead. Let this be your warning: if the OGAO has no Q – the pain will be brought.
Gravel Pckers x 20 IC
Imperial Walkers x 20 IC
Dynamic Warmup: with a slow mosey to the southend of the parking lot we do high knees, butt kickers, Wheat sweepers, turn around, close the gate, open the gate, etc.
From the AO I remind the pax of the four paces in life (walk, mosey, run & sprint). From the flag we will run to the speed bump, then sprint to the end of the lot.
From the end of the lot, mosey backwards to the war memorials:
Merkins x 22 IC as a reminder of the 22 veterans who take their own life everyday..
Mosey to Goose Poop Island:
7 & 7
Back when I was a bartender, the 7&7 was a popular beverage order. Occasionally, a customer would ask for a 12 & 2 indicating they wanted a stronger drink.
At Goose poop, do one round of 7 (derkin and step ups) mosey to the pull up bars, do one round of pullups and dips, flapjack until you complete 7s at both stations.
Mary on the 6.
100 dead stop merkins
Partner runs up the steps and half way around to the stay off the grass sign and down.
By the time everybody got to LBCs, we stopped the run until all partners were back together.
Up to the street, backward mosey to the AO.
Be sur e to join us at Jesus & Jimbos for good bacon, bad coffee and great conversation.
Welcome FNG The Count. Some might say its because he’s from the “The” Ukraine, I thought he said he was from Ukraine – no need to use the “The”. He’s an air quality engineer, so he counts particulate. So we called him The Count … did I mention he’s from Ukraine … like Dracula … ie: The Count.
TAPs: YHC asks for prayers as my family deals with the transition it appears my dad is taking. Seahorse’s family & Blueberry. Vogue and his family in Georgia. The Recovery AO: prayers for continued growth in Pax.
Prayers for our military, first responders and national leaders.
As always, an honor to lead, you should try it.
