18 of RVA’s finest conquered the fartsack and enjoyed a balmy morning saunter through the park at WDOG. Here is how it went down:
Mosey to the circle in front of the Carillon, warm up running the circle with some inside and outside shuffles and some straight forward running. Circle up, all IC: Don Quixote x 10, Helicopter x 10, SSH x 20, Merkin 1.5’s x 10, LBC x 20.
Worlds’s Longest Triple Check: on the long triangle, partner 1 bear crawls the short road, runs down the hill, and runs backwards up the hill. Partner 2: Copperhead squats, and Partner 3: LBC. Three times through. Plank-o-rama for the six.
Winner’s Circle: In the circle by the Carillon, with one hand on inside curb, one on ground, do one merkin. Sideways bear crawl to outer curb, 2 merkins with other hand on curb, sideways bear crawl back to inner curb for 3 merkins…up to 4, repeat and back down. Al Gore’s for the six.
Mosey past the flag and partner up for 50 x PLT each man.
Back to the flag, AYG.
Number-ama, Name-arama, Announcements and YHC took us out.
TYA has the Thanksgiving Q at Mary Mumford tomorrow, starts at 6am. Coffeeteria to follow. Come out and earn some extra pie.
Upchuck has the Breaking Bread Q Sunday and needs another man. See him if you would like to help out.
…I feel like I am missing one here, help a brother out?
Great work this morning, men. The Triple Check was a lot longer than expected, because that triangle was bigger than I remembered. Way to push through anyway. Which brings me to my thoughts on how Thankful I am for this group of men. We show up in the heat and humidity of summer, in the cold of winter, in the rain, in the snow. It was 29 by my car, with frost on the ground, and yet 18 men stood tall and challenged themselves out there today. We face adversity like that, in a place where its OK to fail. We learn to push through adversity, together in the gloom, and each become better men for it. It’s exactly what “70 and Sunny” is about. I give thanks to that every time I post. It was an honor to lead you today!
Sugar Sock out.
