Waiting…

Posted on Posted in Backblasts
  • When: 2/16/2019
  • QIC: McDreamy
  • The PAX: Snagggle, Transformer (FNG), Yardsale, Tone Deaf, Bada Bing, Black Out, Housekeeping, PapaSmurf, Airbags, Lucky Charms, Cookie, Sandcrab, Pickle, Show/ Tell, Boiler Maker (FNG)

In the warm gloom of Sunshine Park, YHC greeted 16 men, eager for a Saturday beatdown. As it turns out, he would not disappoint…based on the post workout mumblechatter. As some of the pax know, YHC has had some time on my hands lately. Mostly waiting. Waiting for things out of his hands. Things beyond his control. So…he posed the question, ‘what are YOU waiting for? A better job? A better wife? A better life?

 

(as it turned out—there was no warm-up. This was pre-warned, and ultimately unnecessary for F3Strong men who posted)

 

  • Partner up— 1 lap around the park, discussing what they were waiting for in their lives
  • Run to front of skatepark— Jacobs ladder: burpees/ LBC (11s)
  • Pool Ups— p1 does pool ups until p2 gets around skatepark— anyway but running forward (2x per pax)

Meet at circle. Low plank, during this 4 min plank. YHC read and discussed the following passage:

THE WAITING PLACE 

by Dr. Seuss

Everyone is just waiting…

Waiting for a train to go or a bus to come,

or a plane to go or the mail to come,

or the rain to go or the phone to ring,

or the snow to snow or waiting around for a Yes or No

or waiting for their hair to grow.

Everyone is just waiting.

Waiting for the fish to bite

or waiting for wind to fly a kite

or waiting around for Friday night

or waiting, perhaps, for their Uncle Jake

or a pot to boil, or a Better Break

or a string of pearls, or a pair of pants

or a wig with curls, or Another Chance.

Everyone is just waiting.

  • BOM: God is a promise keeper…Isaiah 40:31 -“but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.

 

Who you become while you are waiting is more important than what you are waiting for

Nicky Gumble (Anglican priest)
