  • When: 20181201
  • QIC: Dreamliner
  • The PAX: Funny Car, Cowbell, Snowman, Buoy, SubMac, Marvel, Catapult, Dreamliner
  • Road closures and Christmas lights did not hinder the 8 PAX that took their daily red pill (#DRP) on Sat. Expect similar parking situation from now until Christmas. Best place to park is Marriot parking deck.

    The Thang:
    Extended warm-a-rama to account for reduced parking/road closures.

    PAX #1: 30 merkins
    PAX #2: 20 Bonnie Blair’s (aka jump lunges)
    PAX #1: 10 burpees

    Repeat four times with PAX switching roles each round (i.e., PAX #2 has squats, merkins, burpees, and the run in round 2).

    Mosey back to flags where coupons (aka cinder blocks) were already strategically placed.

    Return coupons to their hiding place.

    Circle of Trust (COT):
    YHC shared his thoughts of “The Tipping Point.” The book discusses the little details that cause a movement to take off, to tip. YHC read the book through the lens of F3. The book reminded me of how God can use all things, even the little ones, for the “good of those who love him and are called according his purpose.”

    Romans 8:28 (ESV) “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.”

    Prayer requests.
    Ball of Man.
