45 from around VA came down to Belle Isle for a Memorial Day convergence. Weather was 70, sunny, and plenty humid. We did:
Head to Browns Island for COP: Invisible Jumprope, Don Qs, Merkins, Scorpion Kicks, Flutterkicks, & 10 Burpees. Split the PAX into 2 groups: Gumbo took one group and Spit the other.
YHC stayed with Gumbo and we did Triple Check: Dips, JumpSquats, and Run bridge. Then run around Island and stop for 2 burpees every lightpost. Q was passed to Flatline. We did Buddy carry and PLTs across field. bOB took Q and had us Bear Crawl across field (his apparent superpower) and stop for WWIs.
Oyster took Q and dropped another Triple Check of Derkins, Squats, and run across island. Saab then gave us 11s of HR Merkins and Heels2Heaven. Head back over Bridge then stop for Crab Walk down street & 10 reverse Crunches until audible back to flag. Then up hill to VA War Memorial. 20 Merkins up top. Back down and Gomer Pyle took us out in COT.
NMS – This Memorial Day tradition keeps getting better each year. 45 PAX strong. Looks like Swirly played nice and passed the Q along with his PAX. I’ll let those guys detail in comments. Great words from Gomer Pyle in the COT and nice to remember by name those fallen in the line of duty for us and our country.
The CVille PAX was fiesty as they stayed in our split PAX. Beedle put us all to shame but good to find out he is a 26 yr old Army officer. For some reason our PAX stayed on Browns Island and got totally filthy rolling around on the dirt.
Great work by our 2.0 FNGs Timex & Van Winkle. Also good to have Sippy’s 2.0 out and Bootleg’s 2.0 who was the only female present amongst our 45.
Enjoy the rest of this Memorial Day and take a moment to remember how lucky we are as Americans thanks to those who sacrificed their lives for this great country.
