Catapult is Working

Workout Date:



Texas Ranger


Pikachu, O'Douls, Little Rock, Texas Ranger (QIC)

The Thang:


Upper 60’s, clear

As customary on my Q days, YHC showed up to the AO early  to make sure that everything was in order. I was eager to get today’s beatdown started as this was my first Q at the Catapult. O’Douls was the first to arrive, shortly followed by Pikachu (fresh off his VQ a couple of days earlier). Lastly, we had Little Rock roll in for a somewhat surprise visit, as he was 50-50 on if he was going to make it as he’s been battling some back injuries (results from serving overseas… thank this man for his service when you see him!). Gave the 1 min warning, didn’t look like any other stragglers were going to make it in today (from what I hear, it was probably bc everybody went over to the Village!)

No worries, we can roll with the Catapult stalwarts!

Disclaimer given and we’re off!

Announcements – Another VQ at the Catapult on TUESDAY (05/14/19) for O’Douls. The man looks ready to go and would love to see some great support like we had this past Tuesday. Date Night on Saturday, check Slack for details or talk to Bling. Mother’s day is Sunday, don’t forget.
Prayer requests – Little Rock has a job interview today, prayers that its a fit for him and his family. Unspoken

– Always an honor to Q and it’s been great to get to know these great #HIM at Catapult. Pikachu, O’Douls, and Little Rock are working hard and pushing their bodies to their limits and it’s an inspiration to see them continue to accelerate. Great push by everybody today and get ready to start seeing these guys at regular workouts!
