Conditions: 62 degrees and beautiful

COP: Sallie with ‘Mericans, Big Boy Situps, High/low Planks, and Squats (Change at start of each new verse), 3 man block pass with burpees 10 reps per man x 2 sets (clockwise and counter clockwise)
The Thang: The PAX was given the opportunity to vote on their preference of ladies albeit some questionable (Cindy Crawford, Sally Fields, Dora the explorer, PATrick the Starfish). Very little detail was given on what the vote was for, though some did catch on. Other brothers were also encouraged to vote for which painful act would be delegated despite their absence. The PAX then made their way down to the park for a modified Cindy WOD. Traditionally Cindy is 5 Pull Ups, 10 ‘Mericans, and 15 Squats AMRAP in 20 minutes, however, since Cindy is getting older it was dictated that LBCs would be utilized at 20 reps in addition to help keep things tight. Many rounds were completed by all and the PAX made its way back to the AO in quick fashion to name the two FNGs.

Announcements: Freedom Church Men’s Hike August 12 at 6:00pm on Cypress Garden Rd, Non Affiliated BC workout at the Redbank Fire Station tonight at 6:00 pm, P200 Registration is now open and attempting to gather a Goose Creek Team
Devo: Stations were given to 4 men at a time and the PAX was informed to complete the WOD as fast as possible. This meant they could surpass their group and work in with the next group. Some men fell behind, some men advanced well ahead of others, while still most fell in the middle. An observation was made that the men in the lead were encouraging to those that were a step behind them and pushing those in the group ahead positively. Those being lapped were doing their best to stay up while the middle of the pack found a way to work in sequence to motivate each other. Ultimately the workout was beneficial to all and finished in due time. The moral of the WOD was that in life you will be ahead of some, behind others, and find yourself amongst the pack. You don’t have to lead from the front but from where you are currently, to encourage those behind you, and look to those ahead of you for encouragement. The Q gave his testimony of having an immature idea of friendship and brotherhood based on his experiences as a child, realizing he gets to be with his best friend daily (the M). He encouraged his PAX to fight for each other, pray for each other and to check in with one another.
Moleskin: Olaf received his name due to being from Maine with the only thing to do was snow skiing. Other suggested names included moguls, bunny slope, and ski bunny. Code Brown didn’t give himself much of a chance stating his occupation as a trauma nurse.
