Always 70 and Sunny

Colorado School of Mimes


13 warriors rose to greet the dawn of a new day.  As expected the conditions were mentally perfect with a forecast of 70 and sunny.  According to legend it went a little something like this.

COP: Hand Release Merkin (HRM) IC X 10, HRM right leg up X 10, HRM left leg up X 10

Flutter kicks IC X 10

Mark Shitz (flutter kick with arms extended) X 20

WWII Sit Up IC X 20

SSH X 10, SSH Left Leg X 10, SSH Right Leg X 10

Mosey to top of hill

Noahs Ark 2 X 2:  Partner up.  One partner runs down to bottom of hill and back up.  Other partner completes 2 broad jumps and 2 WWII situps.  Alternate to bottom.

Bar Crawl: Partner up.  One partner runs to top of hill and back down.  Other partner bear crawls.  Round 1.  Round 2 is the same as round one but with Crawl Bears.  Alternate to top.

50 by any means necessary:  Mosey to Rusty Cage and partner up. As a team complete 50 pull ups.

Sippy Showcase: Mosey to amphitheatre and complete ascending incline merkins.  1 on the first step.  2 on the second step.  Etc. to completion.

Burpee Shuffle

Mosey back to the flag.

Namerama, numberama and Swirly led us out.

Moleskin:  This BB is written with much to be grateful for.  At the top of the list at the time of this writing is laughter. Despite the early mornings and hard work, a smile or joke isn’t too far behind.  This morning, there were lots of laughs to be shared.  Let this be the reminder that of all the accomplishments to strive for, let us not forget how important that fun is.

Not speaking of laughter, Welcome FNG Marcel Marceau. You absolutely crushed it today! In the entomology of F3 names, this has the makings of a classic.  Jeff introduces himself -> says he’s got kids in college -> says he has a master’s degree from the Colorado School of Mines -> YHC heard Colorado School of “Mimes” -> Bootleg was quick to identify a famous mime “Marcel Marceau” (are there really any others) -> Marcel Marceau.

News: CSAUP on April 13th.  Get signed up for this.

Rosie has the Breaking Bread Q this Sunday.  If you are interested in helping out.  Give him a shout.

Honeydo is taking the lead on helping out the men of The Healing Place as they train for the Monument 10K.  See him for details.

Be super,
