Always nice to get a chance to head out to the Pitchfork AO.  I feel as if those boys always know how to step it up a notch with intensity.  I’ve been meaning to get on the Q Calendar for awhile and finally got to introduce them to the DeckOfDeath.

Before warmup:
2 Areas of focus today:  1)  FORM  2)  EFFORT

Warm Up
SSH X 20
IW X 20

Mosey over to the speedway loop
The thang
52 card deck
Hears = Burpees
Diamonds = Superman Merkins (hand release merkins with lifting hands over your heads)
Spades = Squats
Clubs = Big Boy Situps

The numbers tell you how many to do all the way up to 14 for an Ace, and every 5 cards results in a SPRINT around the speedway.

I won’t go into a card by card readout but:
– Burpees came out Early with the Ace of hearts in the first 5 cards.  The PAX kept saying “Might as well get them out of the way early” with every heart that was pulled…however…seems like the hearts showed up in all sets.
– Had to bring out the 3rd Focus of the day:  GO ARMY…BEAT NAVY
– Tebediah has some speed!  Brother led the runs pretty much every set
– Was ready to Merlot at the end as there ended up being a good bit of Big Boy Situps after all the sprints
– PAX made sure to make #Footloose proud by calling out the Big Boy Situps
– Music playlist was strong which included:  Toto, Justin Bieber, Dev, Blink 182, Spin Doctors, and Kanye West

Mosey back to the flags

Unfortunately, one of the Shovel Flags fell down.  I hate to call it out, but there are many who fought to have that flag fly high….13 Burpees for those who protect our freedoms
– Finish a couple minutes early to read “Desiderata” by Max Ehrman as YHC was feeling inspired this AM.

Naked Moleskin
– Prayers for everybody’s marriage and strength in love
– Christmas Party tonight at Padre’s House 5PM
– Christmas party at Gideon’s House 5:15AM on 12/23.  Come on out and meet the guys, and eat some breakfast
– Prayers/praise for our freedoms
– Welcome FNG Short Barrel (involved with sales of class 3 firearms stuff).  You crushed it this AM!  Come on back for some more fun!
