20 hardened ironheads landed at No Toll looking to get muddy. Luckily for the pristine fields, it was an Old Glory day and the majority of the activity was confined to the perimeter. Here’s what went down:
YHC grabbed the Flag and away we went. No FNG’s, so a quick disclaimer was given on the fly.
Start with a 1 mile run around the entire soccer field complex (2 laps). Then, loops of 4 stations at the corners of the AO:
Station 1: 20 x Merkins
Station 2: 20 x Jump Squats
Station 3: 10 x Burpees
Station 4: 20 x WWII Situps
Complete as many loops as possible before 6 am, then gather together for another 1 mile run around the complex. PAX planks until the 6 reaches the Shovel Flag. Merkin ROF, then AMRAP merkins until the final four finished the round. Head back to the parking lot for COT. YHC took us out.
– Marmaduke is still collecting coats for the holidays. Get them to him soon.
– Courtney Sievers, the lovely wife of Vinny, will have a book signing and release party at Ruth & Ollie’s in Carytown from 4-7 this Thursday. Come by to pick up some art, the book and some FREE beer.
– Movember is in full effect. Rumor has it Gumbo is not going to cut his hair or shave his neck. Cap’n Caveman, baby!
– Something else, but I must have paused the recording by accident. Labrat apologizes for that.
Nothing like Q’ing an Old Glory at No Toll after a long hiatus. Felt like putting on my favorite old pair of jeans, if they were soaked through and covered and mud. Really, the weather was nice and the rain gave us a nice window to get some work done. It has been almost 3 and a half years since YHC borrowed Old Glory from Charlotte and brought it to No Toll, and that first edition only had 6 PAX. Good to have Wilson as one of the originals there for the reunion (although he probably doesn’t remember it). Rosie in typical fashion killed it, and Labrat was especially spry rocking the Bedrocks in unfavorably cold and wet conditions. Aye! Good to meet those of you that I had not met before, and thanks for letting me back SOJ to lead you fine men. Also, an extra thanks to Honeymoon for hanging back with me while I nursed a bad wheel. Make sure to log your loops on the Google Doc so you can benchmark your progress. See you all in the Gloom!
