F3 does not just run itself. It takes guys stepping up, raising their hand, taking on responsibility, and taking action. Site Qs, Board, special events, etc It may not pay well in terms of $$$ but the relationships & impact cannot be quantified.
SITE Q…Passing the leadership (“Site Q”) torch…and Shovel Flag. Engaged Site Q’s are so key for all of us. They are making sure Q’s are lined up, look out for others during workouts, and promote & grow their site. It’s not a ton of work, but it takes attention & engagement. Even “auto-pilot” sites need engaged Site Q’s or they will fade. It really does “take 2”, like Rob Base AND DJ Easy Rock. If you have benefited from F3, please make it a goal to be a site Q (once, or again).
I was site Q of Bagpipe along with MorningAfter throughout 2017. The irony is that I took that over from SoftPretzel (who is now taking the torch for DaVinci from YHC!). You will always have a bond and connection with your co-site Q!
How did I get DaVinci? I was there when DaVinci launched in January of ’16. I posted regularly, even on Saturday’s when only 3-5 guys were there (I recall when I Q’d once- it was Paper Jam, Wingman, and YHC…3! #sobcounts) Was DaVinci going to die? Not under our watch! Tuck involved Fredo as co-site-Q…great move. And when Tuck became an ultra-marathon freak I got more formally connected with Fredo. I had just passed off the Bagpipe site Q to One-Niner, and Tuck quickly passed the torch & flag to YHC. It was great with Fredo & YHC, but Fredo’s knee started to become a bigger issue – less posting, tough situation. Let’s get Mighty Mite involved! We were a 3-headed Site Q team for awhile until Fredo just needed to step back physically. Now in ’20 SoftPretzel is stepping up again, and ready to help lead the site he loves (workouts & coffeeteria). I love it too – always will.
MicCheck was scheduled to Q today, but instead tried to turn back the clock and dominate his 2.0 in hoops. The result was a boot brace & crutches. I respect that. So Plan B was the brainchild of Mighty Mite – since we were going to “pass the torch” at DaVinci (i.e. Shovel Flag/Site Q) from YHC to Soft Pretzel, “how about you split Q” #BrilliantDelegation
For my half I led Disclaimer & warmups, and then went with AMRAP – an underutilized, but very effective format at bootcamps. (AMRAP=As Many Rounds/Reps As Possible). In the Summer I post WAMRAP at Waverly, where the entire session is “AMRAP”. It’s absolutely terrible. I hate it and love it. What’s great about it:
How-to lead AMRAP?
-YHC did half
-Soft Pretzel did half
I was really smoked today – which is exactly what I want!
Hallelujah for Trickle’s M…clear medical test results!
PS- Crazy YHC completely whiffed on it being “Leap Day”. Once every 4 years AND on a Saturday. The whole workout could have been themed with “Leap” of some kind!! (I know a few things about leaping) “Leap to new leadership” “Leap towards your best you” …#OhWell #Duh!! (side note: “YHC”= “Your Humble Correspondent”)
