Controlling the Narrative


0530 Thursday: Mr. Holland finds himself victim of Lockjaw’s full-on Merkin 5K assault at 45MOM.
2230 Thursday: Mr. Holland checks the Q signup Twin Team is empty.
0530 Friday: Mr. Holland takes charge of the narrative, preventing any excessive merkin activity.

Six men fought the fartsack and took a lap at Twin Team. After a stretching-heavy COP (SSH, helicopters, Russian soldiers, cotton pickers), the plan was in 5-minute intervals:

  • Run for five minutes
  • At the timer, complete 10 merkins, 20 mountain climbers, 30 American Hammers
  • Repeat until 0615

PAX ran up Twin Team Hill, through Tarrington, and around James River HS, covering just shy of four miles in addition to seven stops along the way. Back to Bettie for numbers, names, ‘nouncements.


Twin Team is in need of fresh blood for the Q!

YHC has had seven Q’s since mid-August, mostly in the form of signing up the night before. YHC loves a good Sisyphean beatdown, and can also use the run on the 5-minute cycle, but it’s great to get variety from a wider range of PAX members taking the Q.

Until next time…YNWA

  1. I’m a big fan of the 5 minute cycle Mr. Holland…you can bring it out as often as you like. But…I hear ya. I have definitely been majorly slacking on my Q duties.
