Battalion – 8.04.21


10 PAX showed up at #ao-battalion this morning to prove they weren't chicken. It was a hard morning, totaling 200 burpees, but we are all stronger for it!
PAX: @Tiny Dancer @Rudolph @Lone Star @Tijuana @Pancreas (Nant’an) @MapQuest @Veronica @Singlet @Dizzy Gillespie (F3 Dads)

A few SSH, Squats, Merkins, WMH, BACs, and GMs
Grit Lab!
25 burpees
Mosey over to the parking lot for:
Paula Abduls
Move two lines forward, then one line back, with an exercise in between.  Apparently this more confusing that it sounds.
Section 1:
Mosey 2 lines up, 1 burpee, politician 1 line back, 1 burpee, RnR across the section of the parking lot, doing 25 burpees in this section.
Section 2:

Section 3:
Mosey 2 lines, 3 burpees, politician 1 line, 3 burpees, RnR across the section of the parking lot, doing 75 burpees in this section.
Turn around:
Section 1:
Bear crawl 2 lines, 1 merkin-jack, crawl bear 1 line, 1 merkin-jack, RnR across the section of the parking lot.
After one section, Q called time and moved on because I thought I heard the creek calling out to us.  Or maybe that was just @Rudolph asking if we could get in the creek…
Mosey towards the creek entrance in the back corner, stopping along the way for 25 squats and 25 dips.  @Tiny Dancer mentioned he was hoping to pull the 4Runner today.  #ao-battalion does have a nice parking lot for that.  Noted for a future Q.
Grit Lab, Creek Edition!
25 refreshing creek burpees
Mosey back to the circle to finish up with:
Happy Jacks
Do 5 side straddle hops in cadence then after the 5th one everyone does two jump squats. Repeat non-stop for about 2 minutes until time.
SOG-1 is THIS SATURDAY! If you are interested, you should already be aware of this, and have prepared for it. Seriously.  Do not enrage @Cosmo – ComzQ and Chief Roughneck by showing up unprepared.
Crucible! We have finalized the route and plans for this year's Crucible. Everyone is encouraged to attend, even if you don't think you can do it. We will have a halfway point for anyone who needs to pre-vac or only wants to do half of the event. More details to come!
F3 Dad's day is THIS SUNDAY! Fort Pain, 2PM, bring the kids. (but you can't drop them off and leave!)
All of the kids, teachers, and parents as school is starting back up!
As COVID numbers continue to rise, prayers for the people who contract it, as well as the health care workers that are caring for them

Today's topic: Prayer. As I read through the Q Source section on Prayer, this one paragraph jumped out at me. Even though it doesn't directly relate to Prayer (The Daily Discipline Of Talking With The Creator In Order To Build Faith), it does speak to F3's 3rd F of Faith.
“Before we get to the meat of Faith, I have a disclaimer of sorts. Because I am a Christian my understanding of Faith is informed and guided by that particular belief system. To represent otherwise would be dishonest. But that does not mean that the QSource views Faith strictly from the Christian perspective. Instead, we advocate for the Acceleration of Faith in men of all creeds because we have discovered that a man without Faith cannot Get Right. Without a belief in a power outside of himself a man will have no choice but to view himself as the king of the world. A man who believes that lie cannot be a Virtuous Leader because he will be incapable of seeing himself first as a servant. Instead, he will be a Jackass, a man who lives for himself rather than Living Third .”

Great work today men! You showed up and Accelerated. The hard part is over, go enjoy your Wednesday.
SYITG, Heidi
