I wore my reflective vest as I predicted that I would have to play "traffic cop" getting everyone to park on the perimeter of the OPES staff parking Lot - I wanted the center of the Lot cleared of all obstacles. Rosebud was first to enter and it took some heavy encouraging to get him [...]
As I drove to the AO this morning with a steady rain hitting my windshield, I told myself that if it was only me and one other pax then I’d suggest some solid second F over some hashbrowns at the Waffle House in lieu of a workout. Surely the rain would deter most of the [...]
We played kickball and everyone had fun. Prayers and announcements and then coffee at Palm Coast. Welcome FNG’s Baby Shark and Brownie.
YHC had big plans for a big turnout for kickball this morning but ended up with a 6-PAX. When we got to the ballfields, we got ran off by the field crew who were busy dragging the fields for a baseball tournament. So we moseyed to the tennis courts where we were chased off by [...]
YHC picked up the Q at 4:30am this morning with plans to play Ultimate Frisbee if Icebox show up. He didn’t, nor did we have the numbers, so we played kickball instead. Clocked about 1.5 miles running bases with today’s Wacky Kickball Rules (plus another mile to and from the ballfields). Will try again for [...]

Warmup - SSH, weedpickers, Jeff imperial walkers, side lunges moseyed to pier - incline planked on benches and plank walked down the benches and back, interspersed with about 50 incline merkins along the [...]
15 Pax showed for a pre-Easter egg hunt/beatdown. Warm-up: 12 Don Quixote The Thang: A series of about 40 exercises, including a Dora 1/2/3 with granite. At COT, I read an excerpt from a Max Lucado book called 'He Chose the Nails'.
6 pax met in the gloom this morning (though we did miss Bearded Millenial and Heehaw, who had made noise about coming this morning). We came to better ourselves, and what better way to begin the week then to seek absolution for our misdeeds. This workout was a trial by fire, at least for our [...]
