CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Didn’t do as good of a job as I wanted to of getting my message out so I’ll try it here: Q’ing is fun! If you’re new at it don’t hesitate to reach out to others for ideas, I text Alright Alright all the time about things I’m thinking about and there are others who are happy to help. The important thing is that you try and we’ll support you through it. That is until you get the hang of it and then we’re going to be a bunch of smart asses to you.
As promised to Rump Roast there was no running. To get our cardio we used a heavy dose of jump rope, to make it even better for Alright Alright we listed to various Queen songs while we did it. AA had some words for the Q but he made me crawl bear upstairs a couple times so he had it coming. Not a ton of mumblechatter since we were sucking wind and listening to a sweet playlist. Special Sauce had some words about the Beanie Siegel song and how I don’t get any slow jams at home anymore but I mostly ignored him.
Tried to console Teasip on the A&M loss but we couldn’t tell which team was which because they and Miss St wore the same jerseys for the game.
1. Nominate for Q of the year!
2: vote for volunteerism or college football watching
4 men gathered in the gloom on a Monday morning for the inaugural Doubletime. The idea behind Doubletime is that the group will run a similar route to their rucking brothers, but will try to complete the route twice.
Dirty McDeuce with Irkens, Derkins, Claymakers, and Dips
Run down and back up Flag Pole Hill before each set
Mosey back to Norbuck Park
Baby Rampage: Bear Crawl up hill and crabwalk down then do a burpee. Repeato with increasing number of burpees until 8 burpees have been completed
Take a lap around the baseball field and mosey to playground for a few rounds of pull ups
Sally got called in to work the night shift, so YHC was a bit surprised to see him post. Also nice to know I’m not the only sleep deprived PAX showing up to workouts. We took full advantage of working out near the only hill within a 50 mile radius of the city of Dallas. Flag Pole Hill is definitely an underused AO, though understandable given it’s location.
Bataan Death March to Track (5 burpees)
Pair up for Burbpack Mountain
PAX 1 runs up and down stadium twice while PAX 2 does burpees.
Flapjack and repeato until the team reaches 100 burpees.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Once again, the Q was quickly prefaced by a “Where is everyone?” from AlrightAlright. It was a solid 60 degrees, so there really wasn’t an excuse for the shortage of PAX. YHC had planned an Amazing Race themed workout complete with prizes for the winners, but with the shortage of PAX YHC has deferred that Q indefinitely.
Not too much mumblechatter throughout the morning, especially the first part of the burpee beatdown. Apparently 5 burpees is a little egregious for a Bataan Death March, but that number came straight from F3.
Once we made it to the garage, the chatter picked back up again along with a game of Frogger. People on SMU don’t understand how to drive slowly through parking garages adding a little risk to the Q. We wrapped up with some chatter over 6MoM.
All in all, it was a great morning. The weather was near perfect, and seeing SMU set up for homecoming made the tour-de-campus that much more entertaining.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
PAX we are not guaranteed a morning to awaken up to each day. For those with children and wife, hug them daily and let them know you love them. With the men at work or your co-workers don’t allow tension between yourself and them. Invite the men around you to come join us and be part of this great brotherhood.
This gloom we kicked off warming up with no WalMart, who had posted on Band that he was bringing a FNG most likely. Must have gotten lost. Durning our warmup Icebox tried to help AlrightAlright with a stretch for his back since it was hurt. Turns out AlrightAlright didn’t get that it was for him and not for Icebox. Several comments were made throughout the morning bout Millennials but that did not stop any progress in the beatdown. We quickly made a lap around Glencoe stopping at the first three corners and then at the playground to do 25 OYO merkins. During our warm up lap AlrightAlright mentioned that he could do this all morning, like that will a happen with me leading a beatdown.
Sally began shedding clothing upon returning to the covered picnic area at some point it came down to his last layer and he was encouraged to keep that layer on. If Dallas Parks ever calls about tracks in the park we don’t know much about what they are asking about. We managed to our shoes soaked pretty well even without the rain. During the coupon pull questions began to be raised about what my garage must look like with all the stuff I bring for workouts.
We managed to finish at just the perfect time.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
YHC shared some thoughts on the importance of perseverance in our daily walk. Stay positive and fight through. Grateful to the PAX for allowing me to share about my own struggles in which perseverance is needed.
The PAX were a little disappointed about going back to the track (2 weeks in a row) but appeared to be pleased with the amount of cardio. AlrightAlright was very excited to see the jump ropes this morning. Overall a great day and hopefully a great beatdown.
1. Q of the year contest coming soon per AlrightAlright
