*We initially circled up in Hoppa’s Yard, instructions were given, but I was convinced by some of the PAX to move the workout to the playground. It wasn’t a difficult sell considering my propensity to be attacked by fire ants every time my body comes into contact with the ground. At least it helped increase our running when Jokers came up!

BOM: Dizzy



Today was a lot of fun brothers! Monkey made me aware last night (right before a 7 mile run) on messenger that I was scheduled to Q today…I didn’t even realize that. Luckily, he volunteered to be Back-up Q if I couldn’t make it…and then proceeded to sleep until 6:35am, needing his daughter to wake him and his wife up (WHAT WERE THEY DOING LAST NIGHT?!!!). Anyway, I was available for a little Casino fun with the Deck of Death. As usual, one exercise, burpees in this case, seemed to be clustered near the end. Seems like fate. Mumble Chatter was high, probably because Dizzy was there. We learned a lot about PSCOG vs Newspring theology/practices in between catching our breath during burpees (FYI: In the KDV, aka King Dizzy Version, his words will always appear in green.) Unfortunately, we didn’t have enough time for Black Jack. Sounds like a great idea for a Saturday Q…amirite? Thanks for letting me lead you today brothers!
