CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Prayed for guidance and faith in the things we are each supposed to be doing. Asked for help submitting ourselves and making ourselves second after God, third after our community
The decently-anticipated Greek Day Saturday started off with complete absence of activity in the Greek houses, apart from one plastic table set up in front of the AΦ house. This was a harbinger – PAX saw no activity and heard no chants throughout the rest of the workout. Perhaps the call had not yet gone out to all the angels..
During ALPHA, it was quickly realized that DORA with suicides at each line would take too long for the runner to help out his fellow PAX; lines were modified to the Big 4 (middle of court 1, midline between the courts, middle of court 2, and endline).
During the long mosey, PAX began to get spread out. Tclaps to everyone for watching the 6, supporting where necessary, doing burpees/merkins/planks to keep us all together.
Arriving at the track for sprint work, YHC realized he had not thought of his exercise correctly; the original idea would’ve had all PAX sprinting for 10+ minutes; this was deemed less-than-ideal and modified to the description above, although the transition induced much confusion and required much help from other PAX to figure out.
Bleachers are very slippery when wet.
The Exicon contains very few “E” exercises.
“Flower” lasts a long time and just repeats over and over and over; many jokes made about the song actually having started over without PAX realizing it.
Through the workout confusion, YHC solidified some leadership lessons: 1. Always prepare, or prepare to fail. 2. If something is not working, change it. 3. Support/outside input is crucial, no matter whom is the leader.
He is grateful to all those who helped.
DJ Icebox is far in the lead for assistant Q of the year. YHC requested him to bring tunes; he not only executed this perfectly, he also stepped in as Sua Sponte leader during PAX separation and on the other side of the tennis court.
YHC believes all 12 of us made it to the coffeeteria afterward. Our side of the table discussed football (including Cowboys hope and Bears remorse) and travelling, other side started with discussion of PAX social media followers, which PAX believe is led by Special Sauce with 600+.
During The Gathering, YHC overheard AlrightAlright “looks like a warm hat, new guy” to unidentified PAX; welcomed him as FNG during disclaimer, was enlightened this PAX was Podcast. Kotters.
#Tclaps to Rump Roast for running what he said was maybe the most he has run since high school. Stuck it out strung during all the running.
