BackBlast #theFog 3/24/18 Abacus B-Day Beatdown!

I was fortunate enough to circle the sun one more time, so today marked the celebration of Abacus (YHC) turning 41! Of course the beatdown included plenty of reps to 41! Also happens Dave Matthews Band has a catchy tune #41. Interesting lines in the song about playing for all the loniness that no one notices now. Is Dave Matthews a member of the Virginia PAX? Who knew? Dave matthews.jpeg

My doppleganger, Mark WMark Weinberg, called for rain and cold during the FOG. He was right. YHG realized quickly we had to keep moving. No problem because running was in my forecast! General disclaimers issued and advised PAX modifications may be necessary, but push yourself to get better!

PAX included: Abacus Q, Grave Digger, Big Bird, Kilo, McAfee, Star Child/Pickle, Iceman (R), Captain Insaneo, Double Down (R), Methane, Huggies, Gypsey, Boozer, PK

More from DMB, “Why won’t you run Into the rain and play And let tears splash all over you?” And that’s what we did!

I believe tears splashed over the PAX. Quotes from the PAX:

Methane “You said merkins right? Not Burpees” –> Iceman “Meth have you been drinking?” –> Methane “You said merkins right? Not Burpees”

Captain Insaneo “I’m never coming to another Abacus Q”

Iceman “Who else watched curling last night?”

It sucked as bad as it sounds!

Two minutes left so Jack Webb visited. We made it to 6 merkins and 24 air presses before running out of time. Since we were all SMOKED, mosey to flag.

Intentions were shared for a St. Margret Mary family of three girls who lost their mother several years ago and tragically lost their father this past week. PRAYERS! Several others and I’m sorry I failed to mention them all here. YHC asked Sky Q for help for all us to be better leaders and men to all we encounter.
