In celebration of 100 posts, YHC took the Q and retraced the steps of his very first post. Along the way we stopped for reflection, mumblechatter and some good old fashioned pain.
Note: The * above indicates presence at that first post on May 24th. My heartfelt thanks to you guys for welcoming me into the fold. (Note to Philmont – Chelms was Q the first time you showed up and originally named you something else but I don’t remember what it was)
Early start by 1 minute. Already 4 minutes behind schedule. May 24th started 5 minutes early (just ask Runstopper)
Run up Little Ave to parking lot near Panera for COP. YHC narrated points of interest along the way. Not used to running at the front of the pack, but it definitely smelled better up there.

Mosey to picnic tables at front of CCHS. Between each set, YHC recalled his feelings from that first post:
10 step ups each leg, 10 dips, 10 decline merkins
“At this point I was thinking, what is wrong with these people?”
10 step ups each leg, 15 dips, 15 decline merkins
“At this point I wondered, where are all the chicks?”
10 step ups each leg, 20 dips, 20 decline merkins
“At this point, I just laid face down on the cement and wanted to Cry”
For the final planking-ten-count, YHC threw a nice curve and counted in Roman numerals.

Several lessons learned about being Q:
– Need to learn how to count consistently. If you want to go to 30, don’t slow down at 20.
– Remember to say Recover, otherwise the masses will mumble.
– Don’t spend so much time looking at your Weinke. Next time just make it up as you go along.
Started with a few questions YHC asked of the pax, challenging them to remember what’s important: Have you spent more time reading backblasts this week than your Bible? We slap each other on the back and say good job, but do we do that to our kids every day?
