Merkins at the spa


7 fearless morning warriors kicked off their day the best possible way, in the gloom with their F3 brothers–here’s what happened.

COP, 10 each, IC, SSH, Merkins, DQ, HR Merkins, LBC’s, Merkins, Abe Vigoda, HR Merkins

Indigenous people run around the church to the picnic table area for a triple check

Abyss merkins  between picnic tables, LBC’s, last partner runs to road and back, Al Gore for the six.

Mosey to parking lot, Bermuda Triangle: 3 cones, 30 feet apart in a triangle shape, bear crawl b/t cones, stopping to do 5, then 10, then 15 merkins.  Three reps.

Find a curb for 11’s, heels to heaven and WW2 situps.

Find the flag, numberama, namerama, YHC took us out.


Mumble chatter was lively and varied, ranging from UVA athletics, to Spit and Opus’s favorite spa treatments, to the possibly weird (yes, I’m judging) places Emoji might put hand warmers.  All in all, a fun and taxing workout.  For those doing the challenge, that’s 130 merkins plus however many abyss merkins you did during the triple check.  Thanks for letting me lead.

As usual, I have No Idea what I’m doing.

  1. Spit’s the one who likes the spa treatments. A couple cucumbers for his eyes, a refreshing melon spritzer…
    Thanks for leading this morning. My arms are toast.

  2. One of the great quotes of the morning came from No Idea…

    “I will keep you warm this morning, but in a non-creepy way!”
