Remind Me To Tell You About The Shark


5:50 AM. Two F3RVA regulars met at Kitty Hawk Pier for feeding time and an epic 4th of July beatdown. The legend goes like this:

COP – Helicopters / DQs / SSHs / LBCs / Reverse Sit-ups / Dying Crabs

THANG – Mosey to shoreline for Clock Merkins on the newly man made shelf as part of the beach restoration project. 3 x 12.

Mosey down to pier for unofficial Doras. Pole Smokers on pier pylons while partner runs up to the dune X 5. No dunes were disturbed.

4-Corners: Burpees / American Hammers (2-count) / Merkins / Lunges (2-count). Repeato x 10 x 20 x 30.

Mosey back to changing station for goggle pick up. Mosey back to KHP. DISCLAIMER: No lifeguard on duty. Swim at your own risk. Partner swim out to the end of the pier and back. NBD. Sharks had already eaten, we hoped. Mosey back to the flag.

Slurpee took us out.


YHC and Slurpee have been slacking at the beach for nearly two weeks. Well, YHC has. Slurpee has been killing the runs. Atta boy!  What better way to kick off the 4th than an early morning sand filled beatdown. At the end, when we were safely on shore, YHC told Slurpee (and furnished video) about the six foot shark that was recently caught in the path of our swim. Slurpee took it like a champ – I think.

YHC reflected a bit this morning and realized a few things. First, any exercise done in the sand requires twice the effort. My calves are toast. Second, two-man workouts are a great opportunity to get to know better your brother. Nice talking with you Slurpee. Lastly, down range beatdowns are a blast. Especially in new territory.

Have a great 4th today men, and spend a few minutes in solitude reflecting if you can.

  1. Tons of fun today Slurpee. Sorry you got cuffed and stuffed when you were 17 and 10 months.

  2. Enjoyed it too Vinny, thanks for reaching out to set it up!! Thanks also for waiting to tell me about Jaws until after the swim! Happy 4th guys!

  3. Maybe sharks just aren’t fans of icee drinks?

    Imagine a brain freeze if you already have a really, really tiny brain.
