Back Blast B.O.B. 7.12

P.R.E.S.E.N.T.

QIC: Spotlight

PAX: Slash, T-Packo, 3-16, Diamond, Grovetucky, Grease Monkey, Ridgequest, Bo Schembechler, Savannah

The Pax woke up to a humid Columbus morning but it didn’t stop them from jumping out of the fart sack and posting strong for a 0530 start time.

F3Columbus was happy to welcome two traveling members to the AO. Grease Monkey from Roswell, GA and Ridgequest from TSUN.  He’s a Spartan fan so he was welcomed with open arms.

The week before his “Q” Spotlight was on the beautiful beaches of North Carolina’s Outer Banks. Immersed in family activities he realized he wanted to bring a P.R.E.S.E.N.T. back to his F3 brothers.  With that thought the basis for the workout was born.

The disclaimer was given at 0530 and the Pax started a mosey around the tennis courts up to the parking lot for COP. There was a lot to get done so the warmup was quick.

Name-o-rama followed by a reflection from QIC about how important it is to disconnect from technology and be in the PRESENT with family and friends.  So much goes on in our world on a daily basis and most of it passes by unnoticed because we are preoccupied with our emails or voicemails or social media.  QIC had a chance to spend a week with his family on a beach without the burden of a phone and it really opened his eyes to what his kids are capable of.  The love they have in their hearts for each other and the inquisitiveness they display that a lot of times is viewed as an interruption is actually a wonderful gift and needs to be acknowledged more often by this humble servant. “Yesterday is history.  Tomorrow is a mystery.  Today is a gift.”
BOM and the PAX was led out by Bo’s words of wisdom and prayer.
