Windjammers gave Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. some deserved love and respect today. In 1963 he had a dream…a dream that we are still working on today. Thankful for FREEDOM, a 13PAX of @FalseStart @MilliVanilli @DrRico @StiffArm @Hanson @Hokie @Surely @Cookie @Townie 3FNGs & @WalkieTalkie headed out into the gloom for an 1-20-2020 Beatdown & MLK Jr./Inauguration Day Tribute.
2 pre-runners Cookie & Hanson, and 1 pre-rucker, False Start
Mosey to the dam to circle up by the lake with Side Straddle Hops, Hillbillies, Weed Pickers & COVIDs (socially distanced of course) Mosey back to starting point with some High Knees…oh and grab a coupon.
Diamond Dream Circuit
D – Double-Merkin Burpees (5)
R – Rip-it Rock Curls with our coupons (10 half-way up, 10 half-way down, 10 full curls)
E – Elf on the Shelf 10 (each side)
A – American Hammers 15 Core/Abs
M – Mo’ Merkins 20
It was such a good dream that we didn’t want to wake up & we did it 3 TIMES…AND we DOUBLED the rep count on Round Two.
20 Double Merkin Burpees
120 Rip-it Rock Curls
60 Friggin Elves
80 Mo’ Merkins
We weren’t done yet. We had a Dream of getting some more leg work in so we did an Inauguration Day Bi-Partisan Tribute:
50 Squats, sprint, 13 Bonnie Blairs, sprint
50 for the Stars & !3 for the Stripes
4 Rounds for 4 Years – 200 squats 52 Bonnie Blairs
@FalseStart led some Flutter Kicks for the early finishers…I think he got his 46 rep count he desired. ☺
Mosey back to the Jeep where Q Blasted U2’s Pride (aka In the Name of Love). We divided into 2 Teams facing each other. Every time Bono said “Love” we did a Burpee. We mixed in some air-chair & plank in verse two but kept doing Burpees on queue.
Early morning April 4th, a shot did ring out in the Memphis sky…”Free at Last, they took your life but they could not take your pride. In the name of Love.” RIP MLK
*Historical Fact – MLK was actually shot in the evening so Bono often corrects in live performances.
Q tried to give the PAX the last minute off but @Cookie & @Surely weren’t having it so finished with two rounds of Freddies & Kobes Great work, Team!
Prayers for @Hanson’s new church location (Influencers) & Kid’s ministry, for @Cookie’s stepdad’s 70th/surgery/recovery, and @StiffArms’s dad’s accident & surgery/recovery
Prayers that we can have the vision and boldness of MLK Prayers for our nation’s new President. Peaceful transfer of power, & unity
AND WELCOME BACK to the 3 FNGs newly named @Pontoon @Payroll & Flowbie (or is it Flowbee) It was AWESOME to see you guys and to be able to lead such a big group. Let’s keep growing. I’ll be at Norseman tomorrow if anyone wants to join (5:30 Alpharetta North Park) See you Friday!
-“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
-“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
-“We may have all come on different ships, but we’re in the same boat now.”
-“Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friend.”
-“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”
-“The God whom we worship is not a weak and incompetent God. He is able to beat back gigantic waves of opposition and to bring low prodigious mountains of evil. The ringing testimony of the Christian faith is that God is able.”
Thank you, MLK. I pray we hear your words and live your dream.
