18 Pax showed up to support my (Sonic Boom) VQ, even the Ruc guys stayed for the beatdown, it was great. Thank you, Chilipeper, Cavallino, and everyone else who skipped the Ruc.

We started promptly at 0515 with a disclaimer, mission statement, and our 5 core principles.

Since everyone was eager to get to work, we skipped right over the warm-ups. Lesson learned… Don’t skip the warm-up!

We then split the Pax into 6 teams of 3. The beatdown consisted of 6 exercises (squats, burpees, leg raises, american hammers, merkins, and shoulder taps) with each exercise having its own parking space (station) and 3-4 spaces between each station.

The goal was to begin with 15 reps for each exercise, then drop it by one rep after each circuit of 6 exercises was completed. One caveat was to bunny hop from station to station instead of walking, joging, or running.

I think Stagecoach and Sir Wallace got the closest to completing the pyramid!

Announcements – I didn’t write them down

Prayers / Praises

Chili Papa had a stroke. He’s home now with some memory loss and wants to run a 5K at 88 years of age!

Shamwow’s health. Praying the bone marrow biopsy goes well

We then went to DD for Q Source where we had a great discussion about Persuasion Q3.6

I’m grateful for the opportunity to lead this morning and looking forward to many more!

Thank you all for your support and participation. Everyone gets a trophy 👊
