18 F3 RVA men said H@#$ to the No to the fartsack and came to WDOG for some Tractor Tire fun. YHC came in hot with an empty trailer bouncing behind the Jeepster, exclaimed 30 seconds gentlemen and off we went. We accomplished the following:
Mosey to the far end of the Carillon field for COP. Exercises included:
Invisible Jumpropes x 20 (unless your name is TYA, who would prefer SSH)
SSH x 20 (Just so TYA did not feel left out)
Up Downs (just to roll in the wet grass)
Merkin Tractor Tire (sponsored by Holland Chiropractor Practice) Ring of Fire – each PAX perform 5 merkins while rest of PAX planks. Repeato unitl all PAX have completed 5 merkins.
Success Donut Beast-Two PAX carry tire stopping at 25, 50, and 75 yard line to switch arms. Rest of PAX runs length of field stopping at 25, 50, and 75 yards to complete 6 of exercise called by Q. Exercises included merkins, APD, WWII situps, flutterkicks, and others. (YHC can’t remember, YHC was just calling random exercises while trying to catch breath). Repeato until everyone has carried the Success Donut the length of the field. OOPS!!! The Success Donut (sponsored by Holland Chiropractor Practice) ended up on the wrong side of the field. Let’s do one more with YHC and Hardywood (who officially named the Tractor Tire, now we do not have to call it the @#$% Tire when it show up) carrying the tire back to the starting point.
Success Donut Flip – PAX splits in half and faces each other about 20 yds apart. First person flips Success Donut to corresponding PAX on opposite side while PAX performs exercises called by Q. (Coincidentally, Flipper decided to join the PAX during the Success Donut Flip. He must have heard his name, FINALLY. More on this in a minute.)
Success Donut Triple Check -PAX forms teams of three with one member running to the other side of field, one member doing WWII situps and one member performing Success Donut (sponsored by Holland Chiropractic Practice, I am getting good at this NASCAR thing) Dips.
Mosey back to the flag for Numberama, Namearama and YHC took us out with a real quick prayer.
NMS : It does not matter how early YHC gets up, YHC just can’t seem to make to WDOG with less than 30 seconds to spare. Hence the late arrival, even though YHC was up at 0440. Sorry for the Q’s almost lateness, as I am sure TYA and Swirly had a game plan. Great job by the entire PAX this morning. During the initial mosey, as the PAX was crossing the Carillon field in the gloom, Swirly noticed the Tractor Tire at the end of field. As he saw it, he said “There it is…”. Hardywood’s response was “That’s what we call a Success Donut”. Hence the name, but Flipper still has naming rights. In true NASCAR lingo (I don’t even know that much about NASCAR), the official name is F3 RVA Success Donut sponsored by Holland Chiropractic Practice. More about Flipper. Post beatdown, Flipper told YHC and others that he was 2 minutes late. (Why did it take Flipper so long to join the PAX. Stomach issues, Got lost???, etc.) No, he just could not find us because YHC was not in the usual spot for the COP. With that being said, Flipper ran around the entire AO, to include the VITA track, Pump House road and right in front of the Carillon without looking to the far side of the field. His fancy GPS watch said he ran 2.5 miles before locating the PAX. He said if he did not find us, he was just going to run around aimlessly for 45 minutes because he knew where the PAX would be at 0615. Glad you found us and got to experience some Success Donut fun. After all, you are sponsoring the coupon.
Thanks for letting me lead, and has Saab says “Putting up with my nonsense”
