Mary no mercy!

9 PAX posted this morning for too much Mary! Waterfall on Q.

The Warm Up: 20 SSH IC, 20 Moroccan Night Club IC, 20 Cherry Pickers IC, Bolt 45 (AKA zoo keeper special)

The Thang: PAX teamed up in pairs of two. Half shuffled with their ruck sacks around the church. The other half did Mary. Then they swapped. We did Mary off of this sheet provided by Waterfall’s M, “Flamingo.” See the sheet here:
https://darebee.com/ab-exercises.html We got through the “side jack knives” before we ran out of time.

The Message: Q read from the Easter story, John chapter 20. Waterfall commented that he is like Peter because he is always getting outrun.

F3 Message 04/02/19

Written bChris Sperry

Chris Sperry is a baseball consultant who develops players and amateur coaches, assists professional scouts, and counsels families of prospective college-bound student-athletes. He holds a Bachelor’s of Business Administration from the University of Portland, the same institution at which he served as head baseball coach for 18 years. His key interests are in player and personal development as they pertain to a life in and beyond sports.

In Nashville, Tennessee, during the first week of January, 1996, more than 4,000 baseball coaches descended upon the Opryland Hotel for the 52nd annual ABCA convention. Nineteen times since, many of the same professional, college, high school, youth, and a slew of international coaches from passionate and developing baseball nations have gathered at various convention hotels across the country for two-and-half days of clinic presentations and industry exhibits. Sure, many members of the American Baseball Coaches Association have come and gone in those years; the leadership has been passed, nepotistically, from Dave Keilitz to his son, Craig; and the association — and baseball, in general — has lost some of its greatest coaches, including Rod Dedeaux, Gordie Gillespie, and Chuck “Bobo” Brayton. I have attended all but three conventions in those nineteen years, and I have enjoyed and benefited from each of them. But ’96 was special — not just because it was held in the home of country music, a town I’d always wanted to visit. And not because I was attending my very first convention. Nashville in ’96 was special because it was there and then that I learned that baseball — the thing that had brought 4,000 of us together — was merely a metaphor for my own life and those of the players I hoped to impact. While I waited in line to register with the hotel staff, I heard other more veteran coaches rumbling about the lineup of speakers scheduled to present during the weekend. One name, in particular, kept resurfacing, always with the same sentiment — “John Scolinos is here? Oh man, worth every penny of my airfare.” Who the hell is John Scolinos, I wondered. No matter, I was just happy to be there. Having sensed the size of the group during check-in, I woke early the next morning in order to ensure myself a good seat near the stage — first chair on the right side of the center isle, third row back — where I sat, alone, for an hour until the audio-visual techs arrived to fine-tune their equipment. The proverbial bee bee in a boxcar, I was surrounded by empty chairs in a room as large as a football field. Eventually, I was joined by other, slightly less eager, coaches until the room was filled to capacity. By the time Augie Garrido was introduced to deliver the traditional first presentation from the previous season’s College World Series winner, there wasn’t an empty chair in the room. ABCA conventions have a certain party-like quality to them. They provide a wonderful opportunity to re-connect with old friends from a fraternal game that often spreads its coaches all over the country. As such, it is common for coaches to bail out of afternoon clinic sessions in favor of old friends and the bar. As a result, I discovered, the crowd is comparatively sparse after lunch, and I had no trouble getting my seat back, even after grabbing a plastic-wrapped sandwich off the shelf at the Opryland gift shop. I woke early the next morning and once again found myself alone in the massive convention hall, reviewing my notes from the day before: pitching mechanics, hitting philosophy, team practice drills. All technical and typical — important stuff for a young coach, and I was in Heaven. At the end of the morning session, certain that I had accurately scouted the group dynamic and that my seat would again be waiting for me after lunch, I allowed myself a few extra minutes to sit down and enjoy an overpriced sandwich in one of the hotel restaurants. But when I returned to the convention hall thirty minutes before the lunch break ended, not only was my seat not available, barely any seats were available! I managed to find one between two high school coaches, both proudly adorned in their respective team caps and jackets. Disappointed in myself for losing my seat up front, I wondered what had pried all these coaches from their barstools. I found the clinic schedule in my bag: “1 PM John Scolinos, Cal Poly Pomona.” It was the man whose name I had heard buzzing around the lobby two days earlier. Could he be the reason that all 4,000 coaches had returned, early, to the convention hall? Wow, I thought, this guy must really be good. I had no idea. In 1996, Coach Scolinos was 78 years old and five years retired from a college coaching career that began in 1948. He shuffled to the stage to an impressive standing ovation, wearing dark polyester pants, a light blue shirt, and a string around his neck from which home plate hung — a full-sized, stark-white home plate. Seriously, I wondered, who in the hell is this guy. After speaking for twenty-five minutes, not once mentioning the prop hanging around his neck, Coach Scolinos appeared to notice the snickering among some of the coaches. Even those who knew Coach Scolinos had to wonder exactly where he was going with this, or if he had simply forgotten about home plate since he’d gotten on stage. Then, finally. “You’re probably all wondering why I’m wearing home plate around my neck. Or maybe you think I escaped from Camarillo State Hospital,” he said, his voice growing irascible. I laughed along with the others, acknowledging the possibility. “No,” he continued, “I may be old, but I’m not crazy. The reason I stand before you today is to share with you baseball people what I’ve learned in my life, what I’ve learned about home plate in my 78 years.” Several hands went up when Scolinos asked how many Little League coaches were in the room. “Do you know how wide home plate is in Little League?” After a pause, someone offered, “Seventeen inches,” more question than answer. “That’s right,” he said. “How about in Babe Ruth? Any Babe Ruth coaches in the house?” Another long pause. “Seventeen inches?”came a guess from another reluctant coach. “That’s right,” said Scolinos. “Now, how many high school coaches do we have in the room?” Hundreds of hands shot up, as the pattern began to appear. “How wide is home plate in high school baseball?” “Seventeen inches,” they said, sounding more confident. “You’re right!” Scolinos barked. “And you college coaches, how wide is home plate in college?” “Seventeen inches!” we said, in unison. “Any Minor League coaches here? How wide is home plate in pro ball?” “Seventeen inches!” “RIGHT! And in the Major Leagues, how wide home plate is in the Major Leagues?” “Seventeen inches!” “SEV-EN-TEEN INCHES!” he confirmed, his voice bellowing off the walls. “And what do they do with a a Big League pitcher who can’t throw the ball over seventeen inches?” Pause. “They send him to Pocatello!” he hollered, drawing raucous laughter. “What they don’t do is this: they don’t say, ‘Ah, that’s okay, Jimmy. You can’t hit a seventeen-inch target? We’ll make it eighteen inches, or nineteen inches. We’ll make it twenty inches so you have a better chance of hitting it. If you can’t hit that, let us know so we can make it wider still, say twenty-five inches.’” Pause. “Coaches …” Pause. ” … what do we do when our best player shows up late to practice? When our team rules forbid facial hair and a guy shows up unshaven? What if he gets caught drinking? Do we hold him accountable? Or do we change the rules to fit him, do we widen home plate? The chuckles gradually faded as four thousand coaches grew quiet, the fog lifting as the old coach’s message began to unfold. He turned the plate toward himself and, using a Sharpie, began to draw something. When he turned it toward the crowd, point up, a house was revealed, complete with a freshly drawn door and two windows. “This is the problem in our homes today. With our marriages, with the way we parent our kids. With our discipline. We don’t teach accountability to our kids, and there is no consequence for failing to meet standards. We widen the plate!Pause. Then, to the point at the top of the house he added a small American flag. “This is the problem in our schools today. The quality of our education is going downhill fast and teachers have been stripped of the tools they need to be successful, and to educate and discipline our young people. We are allowing others to widen home plate! Where is that getting us?” Silence. He replaced the flag with a Cross. “And this is the problem in the Church, where powerful people in positions of authority have taken advantage of young children, only to have such an atrocity swept under the rug for years. Our church leaders are widening home plate!” I was amazed. At a baseball convention where I expected to learn something about curveballs and bunting and how to run better practices, I had learned something far more valuable. From an old man with home plate strung around his neck, I had learned something about life, about myself, about my own weaknesses and about my responsibilities as a leader. I had to hold myself and others accountable to that which I knew to be right, lest our families, our faith, and our society continue down an undesirable path. “If I am lucky,” Coach Scolinos concluded, “you will remember one thing from this old coach today. It is this: if we fail to hold ourselves to a higher standard, a standard of what we know to be right; if we fail to hold our spouses and our children to the same standards, if we are unwilling or unable to provide a consequence when they do not meet the standard; and if our schools and churches and our government fail to hold themselves accountable to those they serve, there is but one thing to look forward to …” With that, he held home plate in front of his chest, turned it around, and revealed its dark black backside. “… dark days ahead.” Coach Scolinos died in 2009 at the age of 91, but not before touching the lives of hundreds of players and coaches, including mine. Meeting him at my first ABCA convention kept me returning year after year, looking for similar wisdom and inspiration from other coaches. He is the best clinic speaker the ABCA has ever known because he was so much more than a baseball coach. His message was clear: “Coaches, keep your players — no matter how good they are — your own children, and most of all, keep yourself at seventeen inches.” He was, indeed, worth the airfare.

Merlot? Hill No!

DATE: 3/14/19

QIC: Chappie

We’ve a pain location nicknamed “O Hill No!” due to the nature of the beatdowns which have occurred there, and, it’s a hill. Don’t tell Vanilla but the first use of that hill was prior to his being jumped-in to this gang we call F3. The workout involved some cindy coupons that Santa had left at the bottom of the hill because he found no Christmas Tree nearby — he had to leave the blocks somewhere! Still, Vanilla gets some credit because the first beatdown he Q’d there left the PAX saying, “O Hill No!” and so the hill was dubbed. However, right next to that location is a portion of Behringer Ave. which for obvious reasons was dubbed Merlot Hill (as was the FNG so named that day in March 2017). He promptly got married and moved up to O-H-I-Ohh…the extent to which some will go so they’ll NEVER have to post again! Lol, just kidding, YHC has kept in touch with Merlot and HE still talks about that humbling day. Anyway, you had to be there. Yet, from time-to-time YHC tries to recreate the aforementioned (language borrowed from Wildwing) experience. Here’s a little of what that looks like:


  • SSH – 20 IC
  • Imperial Squat Walkers – 10 IC
  • Cherry Pickers, Crab flippers, Hairy Chiggers – 18 IC
  • “Swartz Jacks” – 18 IC (Combo of Seal Jacks + 4-count SSH’s YHC’s beloved gym teacher taught in elementary school)
  • Suzanne Somers – 30 out, 30 in OYO
  • Drydocks – 40 OYO (butt up, Chairman!)
  • Low Slow Squats – 10 IC


Indian Run mosey to the bottom of the hill at the intersection of Behringer Ave. & Chandler St., nice easy pace then picked up last 1/4 mile.

Round trip 2x = 1 mile

11’s (Merkin Merlot March Madness) from the pole at the bottom to the pole at the top of the incline. 1 Merkin at the bottom, 10 at the top. 2 Merkins at the bottom, 9 at the top. Rinse & repeat until reaching 10 at the bottom, 1 at the top.

PAX moved from bottom to top/top to bottom with a variety of mix/match transitions: Mosey’s, Lt. Dan’s, Nur, Accelerating Man, etc.

3rd F Breather:

Indian Run mosey return to AO, picked up the pace crossing over Union St., into the Willow St. entrance to the CHOP AO.

Still 7 minutes on the clock? What the what?? Time to intro some new ones borrowed from “Band of Brothers” [extras] :

Atomic Sit-ups: PAX in sit-up position, side-by-side, right arm over top & left arm under. PAX do sit-ups in-sync — Up then 3rd of way down, back up. 10 Reps.

Caterpillar Merkins: PAX all in 1 line, feet on shoulders of man behind you (Chairman, pleeeeease plank…get your butt out of my face!). In sync, IC. Surge “Up!”, “Down.” 10 Reps.

Great push by all 9 PAX who won THAT FIRST BATTLE and posted. Hey, Bo Derek, where were you? Broke out the shorts with a nice taste of Spring. Let’s go warm weather! Great time to EH and rescue the Sad Clowns. Record breaking PAX numbers are near future. So, post and post regularly.

By the way…was there Merlot today? O Hill no!


  • ANNOUNCEMENTS: “Shamruck” this Sunday (St. Patty’s Day). Georgetown Circle @3:17 p.m. Bring the whole family, wagons, strollers, etc. Easy ruck. Fun time. Great 2ndF between all our families.
  • PRAYERS: Chairman’s parents: Brenda/Denny, healing; Doubtfire’s daughter, Leah; Waterfall’s sis-in-lo, Leah

That’s about it. Appreciate the opportunity to Q it up!

Chappie, out!

QUOTE :You Will never always be Motivated, o you must learn to be disciplined. -Unknown

The Message was taken from a website sourcesofinsight.com

Discipline vs. Motivation

“Only the disciplined are truly free.  The undisciplined are slaves to moods, appetites, and passions.”  — Stephen Covey

What’s the difference between motivation and discipline?

I like to think of discipline as “what to do” and motivation as “why to do.”

Discipline has a Latin root, but the gist is it’s about teaching.  So I think of self-discipline as teaching yourself self-control and shaping your behavior, so that you’re not a slave to your motivations.

Use Discipline to Bring Out Your Best

Primal motivations served us at one point, but society’s changed what survival means.  For more precision, you can think of discipline as shaping your thinking, feeling, and doing to adopt a new behavior.

Discipline serves you most when motivation says do otherwise.  At the end of the day though, I think a key is to find ways to link things to feeling good.

You do more of what makes you feel good and less of what makes you feel bad.

Motivation is “Why to Do”

Motivation is the why behind the goal.  It’s your little engine that says you can, when the rest of you says you can’t.

It’s also the same force that can help you move mountains, on a good day.

Motivation is a life-long skill that you can improve through self-awareness and proven strategies.  The better you know your own drivers and levers, the more effective you’ll be at getting the results you want in your life.

Discipline is “What to Do”

Then there’s self-discipline.  Self-discipline is the ability to correct your behavior (Self-discipline is simply correcting or regulating your behavior for the sake of improvement.

Will is based on thinking and reason to create action – motivation is more from emotion.)

It helps you get back on your course when you fall off your path.

It helps you do the right thing in the moment for your long-term benefit, when you may want to do something else.

According to Stephen Covey, “Only the disciplined are truly free.  The undisciplined are slaves to moods, appetites, and passions.”

Self-discipline is a muscle that gets stronger the more you flex it.

Motivation and Discipline Work Hand in Hand

Motivation and self-discipline work hand in hand.  Motivation can be your initial inspiration.  When you lose your initial inspiration, self-discipline can help keep you going.   To commit to self-discipline, it’s your initial motivation that says it’s worth it.

I think you find your motivations when you ask questions such as “What do you want to do?” and “What do you want to avoid?” and  “Why do you want to do that?”

I think you encourage discipline when you yourself “What’s the best thing for you to do?”

How to Make Discipline Actionable

Where there’s a will, there’s a way. It’s easy to do what you’re motivated for.  It’s not easy to do what you’re not motivated for.  How do you transition to the right behaviors?

There are a few things you can do:

  1. What’s the right thing for you.  Get clarity on what the right things for you to do are.  You can’t discipline or correct course if you don’t know what to change to.
  2. Treat motivations as input.  What does your mind want, what do your emotions want? What does your body want?
  3. Decide up front.  This is the key.  Decide on your behaviors before hand.  Once you’re in the thick of things, it’s easier to react than respond.  You can respond more effectively if you committed to a decision.
  4. Ask yourself questions.  Get in the habit of asking yourself “what do you want to do?” and “what’s the right thing do to?”  What you want to do is your motivation, what’s right for you will take discipline.
  5. Make motivation work for you.  Discipline lights up your way, but motivation is your fuel.  Progressively shape your thinking, feeling, and doing until it’s a habit.  You can start a question or thought at a time.  Remember that your thoughts change your feelings.
  6. Link it to good feelings.  Remember to link things to good feelings for the long run.  This can be as simple as changing how you think about something or internalizing how you value something.  Acknowledge and reward your good decisions and actions.

Don’t be a slave to your motivations.

Free  yourself up through discipline.

Use discipline and motivation together to realize your potential and bring out your best.

F3 Message – See Below  

Count-O-Rama, Name-O-Rama, and the Circle of Trust.  Prayers were offered for multiple needs within the attending PAX including healing prayers for Waterfall’s Grandfather and Chairman’s Mom and Dad.  Please keep all our HIM in your thoughts and prayers.

Q provided the F3 Message from the internet as copied and utilized from the Ron Hutchcraft Ministries Website. Q was on call for the past two weeks for jury duty in the Superior Court of Delaware and was able to find a strong word from Mr. Hutchcraft. Q tried to tie it all together as it pertains to having a Savior that paid for our sins when we are all guilty and not worthy of the gift of eternal salvation that Jesus provided for us by way of the Cross. All we have to do is accept, receive and trust Him as our Lord and Savior and live a life that keeps him in the center of all we do.

NOT GUILTY by Ron Hutchcraft Ministries

“There are verdicts given in court rooms all over the country every day, but most of them don’t affect you. One verdict that really does affect you is the one that determines where you’ll spend eternity.

It’s God’s verdict. You ask: “Was I good enough? Will I make it to heaven when I die? Was I guilty or not guilty with God?” The verdict is not in a sealed envelope. It’s in an open book, and you don’t have to wait to find your verdict from God.

The Word of God in Romans 3:19 says, “Every mouth will be silenced. The whole world held accountable to God. No one will be declared righteous in His sight by observing the law…” That means doing good things. Chapter 3:10 says, “There is no one righteous, not even one…” Everyone is guilty. Verses 22-23 say, “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” ( Romans 3)

The verdict is in on each of us – Guilty before God. We have broken His laws over and over. We’ve hijacked the life our Creator gave us and run it ourselves. We’ve been our own god. Not only is the verdict in, the sentence has been pronounced. In Romans 6:23 it says, “The wages of sin is death.” Some are going to try to plead the good they have done. It’s not enough. No one is righteous, not even one.

A death penalty cannot be paid by doing good. Someone has to die. Our sin leaves us condemned in the court room of God. Our sentence is described in one word – hell. This reading of the verdict is followed by an amazing offer of a pardon. It says in the next verses that we are justified freely by God’s grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus through faith in His blood. In other words, someone has come to pay your death penalty – God’s own Son.

Our only hope of ever being right with God, of ever going to heaven, is placing all our hope in Jesus Christ, the One who died as our substitute. If you think that your religion or your goodness is going to satisfy God’s verdict, the Bible says it won’t. Jesus died so He could forgive your sin and erase it from God’s book, and trade the death penalty you deserve for the eternal life you don’t deserve. You just have to put your total trust in Him to be your Savior. If you never have, if you’re not sure you have, don’t risk another day without Him. The bad news is that you’re guilty before God. We all are, and the sentence is death. If you belong to Jesus Christ, because you have put your trust in Him, you can have the Son of God as your defense attorney before His Father, and a guaranteed verdict of “Not Guilty” – free to go home to the heaven He has prepared for you.”
