Thursday, August 17, 2017 QIC – Uptown Girl
Another great day in Paradise! Your Humble Companion (YHC) arrived at the flag pole at 5:30 am; after EH’ng Florin (another guy from Ethopia) who Ubered me to the Park from The Cosmopolitan. It’s an $8.00 Uber ride versus a $25 cab ride. Think about it! The best $8.00 spent in this town.
I spotted a guy who I saw on Tuesday who was doing some flying squirrel exercise across the infield. I said this is a perfect F3 candidate. Come to find out he is a porter at Caesars. This 58 year old brother packs his workout clothes everyday and as soon as his shift is over (5am) he heads to the park for a workout. Turns out he knows a few people. While I was talking to FNG, Motown rolls in ready to give it another go. After admitting to splashing merlot after 30 minutes into his first workout; he was back for more. He said, “I need this!” I told him, you are the reason I am doing this. Where else can you find a man; who is ready to change his life for the better and be supported by his brothers. No strings attached!
Mosey to down the ramp. Stop at the benches. Step-ups, Dips, Sungods, Abe Vagoda, Monkey Humpers, Merkins, Derkins, Mountain Climbers, SSH, Seal Jacks, and maybe some other stuff that got us warmed up and sweating.

Mosey to mid-field! For Part 2! Sett up two water bottles 25 yards apart. Motown had to bolt to pick up his daughter. We prayed him out. About 2 minutes later a young women approached us wanting to join us, she was friend of FNG. I explained this is a men’s only group, no offense, however, some men would be less likely to participate if women were working out with group. She understood; however, her heart was saddened. I told her that I would introduce her to FIA (Females In Action); which is a sister organization. Since she was a close personal friend of FNG, 75% through workout, and no other men would be discouraged or distracted by her participation I invited her to join us for this one time.

Reflection – Thank God I was rocking a Tony Robbins conference from 9am to 11:30 pm yesterday. Did you know that prostitution is legal in Clark County (Las Vegas). Let’s be real. There is so much sin that easily entangles (Hebrews 12: 1-3). Many a great man have fallen to lust. Because it’s legal, does that mean it’s ok? Did God really say, no to eat from this tree? .
