10 PAX showed up this morning hungry for pain and to help serve those less fortunate in our community to a hot breakfast.  This was my first Q flying solo (did a co-Q with Quicken), so needless to say I got about 4 hours of sleep and had a nightmare that I overslept.  However, I was jazzed up because….

I love this time of year.  Playoff baseball, football tailgates, cooler weather, and college basketball right around the corner.  For my first Q, I wanted to incorporate several of the above (the cooler weather didn’t show up and I nixed bringing a baseball as I didn’t want Amphibious to break a car window).

We started a new tradition with a spin on “Midnight Madness.”  We had a fun beat down while incorporating corn hole (still smelled like this weekend’s past tailgate) and a little basketball free throw shooting contest.  To start things off we took a little mosey around the church (1 lap) and circled back up for……


  • 25 SSH
  • 15 windmills
  • 15 monkey humpers
  • 25/25/25 Sun gods (in all directions)

At this point Q could tell the PAX were getting stoked for some games so we ended the WOR early….if only they knew what was coming::


We split up into 2 groups with group 1 heading over to the adjacent parking lot where a cornhole board (with bags) was set up.  Group 2 jogged over to the basketball hoop where one basketball laid in between 6 cinder blocks.  In between each station was a “suicide court,” marked off with 5 cones.  The rules for each game were simple:

Group 1:

  • Each PAX will rotate and take 10 free throws (collectively).
  • A miss shot = 20 bicep curls with cinder blocks
  • A make shot = 10 Carolina Dry Docks
  • Once all 10 shots were taken, group ran a suicide for each shot missed.
  • Run 1 lap around church to get to station 2.

Group 2:

  • Each PAX will rotate and take 10 tosses (collectively).
  • A miss shot (didn’t get in the hole) = 10 burpees  (heavy mumblechatter ensued)
  • A make shot = 20 squats
  • Once all 10 shots were taken, group ran a suicide for each shot missed.
  • Run 1 lap around church to get to station 1.

Q learned that Natville Pax are too buff and are not very good shooters.  Lots of suicides occurred this morning.

6 MOM:

  • 25 LBC
  • 15/15 Cindy Crawford’s each side
  • 25 Freddie Mercury
  • 15 American Hammers


  • 3rd F tomorrow at Harris Teeter, 6:30am – 7:00am.  The more the merrier!
  • Magic is still looking for Qs for Arise.  Dates are open from 11/22 – the end of the year.  Contact Magic if you feel ready and able.

Thanks to everybody who came out and let me get a little off-the-wall with our workout.
