(Taken from an F3 Cape Fear backblast)
All PAX in a circle in plank, except one in middle. Middle person plays RPS with someone from circle, loser does 3 burpees and is now in the middle. Keep going until Q calls time. A couple things happened here:
– @Foosball pre-vac
– we learned what the longest plank ever feels like
– @Cosmo learned he shouldn’t enter into any RPS competitions
5 burpees OYO
Bear-Crab Chase
Playing area limited to playground.
Partner up. Partner 1 does 5 merkins while partner 2 scampers away in crab walk. After merkins, partner 1 chases partner 2 in a bear crawl until they can tag them, then switch roles. Here we learned that @Pancreas likes to walk the line between craftiness and cheating, making @Three’s Company one lost bear.
7s with pull-ups and hand-release burpees.
To the pavilion for sets of 10 dips, 10 derkins AMRAP for a few minutes. Back to the starting circle.
5 burpees OYO
25 American Hammers led by @Heidi
Q suggested @Cosmo lead us through Alabama prom dates, which was promptly disregarded while he kicked off Failure to Launch, made (in)famous by @Kwame. FNG made us pay for that.
@Heidi is having the Fort Pain 1-year anniversary CSAUP in March. He’s calling it the Cannonball Run.

We’re pretty sure there’s no Spring Hill Christmas parade, but my neighborhood (Canterbury) is having a parade. @Cosmo has an in with the Social Committee co-chair there, so he’s gonna reach out and see if that’s a fit for us.
Prayer requests

“I tell you the truth, you can say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen. But you must really believe it will happen and have no doubt in your heart. I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours.”
‭‭Mark‬ ‭11:23-24‬
“Whether you believe you can, or you believe you can’t, you’re right.”
Henry Ford
Your belief and conviction determine so much of your success. If you start something hard already believing you can’t do it, then you’ve already lost. You may not be able to control how things turn out, but you can control your mindset and your faith. Jesus tells us to pray boldly, so the practice may fill us with conviction and determination. He can accomplish anything, and He uses us to that end.
Believe boldly.
Op out
