Always 70 and Sunny

To a Mouse*

8 men of purpose got their day started as the shoveled Stars & Stripes flapped gloriously in the wind. Most of the pre-planning went out the window; the Q made on-the-fly adjustments to still meet the objectives of the day:
– No rolled ankles from uneven ground in the gloom
– Get a good workout while not rolling around in the mud
– Pull-ups somewhere along the way


Mosey past the Carillon to the second turnabout circle.
– SSH x25
– IW x20
– Alabama Ass Kickers x15
– Russian Soldiers x20
– Merkins x10
Mosey around the reservoir to the tennis courts.
King of Spades Tennis Court Beast (plank up after each)
– Suicide
– Burpees x6 x6
– Merkins x6 x6
– Flutter Kicks x6 x6
– Carolina Dry Docks x6 x6
– Rosalitas x6 x6
– Squats x6 x6
LBCs x25 then mosey to the Vita Course in search of a place to do pull ups.
@ the monkey bars, each of the PAX do 2 sets of pull-ups. Max # +5 with help
Mosey back to shovel flag
Russian Twists x25
COT – prayer for healing of the Portland community and our country


Well done this morning, fellas. As mentioned at the beginning, YHC would typically have not shown up for a cold/rainy workout, but having signed up as Q previously this brotherhood was good accountability to alter that norm. It’s been >1 yr for YHC as part of the Richmond PAX and it is an honor and privilege to be a part of it, and to have made many new friends in that time.
Good conversation & fellowship at the local Coffeteria afterward. Among other items, the joys of jury duty, speeding tickets, and vendor pricing were discussed.
