March Sadness

There are few regions that are setting the example of how to Get Right, Live Right, Lead Right & Leave Right better than the men of F3 Waxhaw.  That’s why I was honored to be asked to Q Homecoming (more on that later).  YHC did a little recon work at the campus, was given some advice from Posse on how to handle the Corona-COT and set out to put together a weinke that would make the Pax hate me for putting them through it, but would also make them want me to come back again for a future Q.  I’ll leave that up to the 5 who weren’t either self-quarantined, at Commitment or at Gladiator to decide.  Here’s how it went down.

 

The Roving COP

Mosey from cars to top of carpool circle – SSH X 20

Moleskin

I mentioned earlier that I was honored to be asked to Q a workout in Waxhaw, but Posse let it slip that they were running out of people for the 70 Day Q Challenge and were scraping the bottom of the barrel….

It was good to see Blue Screen back in the Gloom.  #Kotters  Dude can almost shoot a decent free throw

I had the opportunity to meet Southern Tip this morning for the first time.  He’s killing it like a veteran.  He was out front for  every mosey but didn’t set any records from the free throw line

Frack came in hot at 5:30 but made up for being “late” with his effort this morning.  Don’t be surprised if you see him practicing his free throws.  Just sayin’

Posse did a solo pre-run to get warmed up and killed it during the workout.  Dude always puts forth a solid effort but I don’t think his 2.0 has to worry about his dad beating him in P-I-G or any other basketball game any time soon.

YHC is sorely disappointed that all of the Spring sporting events have been Covid-cancelled (#MarchSadness), so YHC decided to build in a little fun this AM and everyone discovered how humbling and hard it is to shoot a free throw with 1) a flat basketball and 2) with wobbly arms fresh off of dozens of reps of pull ups, merkins, O/H presses, curls & tricep extensions.  It’s a good thing the Pax at homecoming are so good at boot camping because b-ball is definitely not their strong suit.  I think we made 4/20.

During Name-O-Rama, YHC was called out for starting with a fist bump. #Cobains  It’s hard to break old habits because even though I was called out, Posse still gave me the knuckles.  #Cobains.  The rest of the COT was done with proper social distancing and we finished up kneeling during our closing prayer.  Thanks to Blue Screen for the take out.

I was worried about living up to the standard the Waxhaw region has set for its workouts and tried to create a fun & challenging beatdown.  I was happy to hear that I built in some coupons & areas that had not yet been discovered.  Weddington Middle is a great AO.  I hope everyone got their money’s worth because it was truly an honor to be asked to lead this morning.  Already looking forward to the next time.
