Always 70 and Sunny

A tribute to Sarah


16 stalwarts posted on a drizzly Thursday morning…oops sorry, it was 70 and sunny.

The Thang.

Mosey to bus circle. COP with SSH, Don Quixote, Freddy Mercury, and Imperial Walkers, Curb calls with incline and decline merkins, up to 7, repeat 7 and back down. Partner up for 1k5k, 100 merkins, 200 jump squats, 300 WWII setups, 400 flutter kicks. Partner runs the bus loop, when you hit WWII 2 loops and for the flutter kicks, run backwards. Triple check, dips, SSH and third partner runs loop. A few mary exercises, culminating in Superman led by Swirly and then back to the flag.


Had tentatively planned a hockey themed workout, but things didn’t go Boston’s way last night, so bagged that idea. Many thoughts from the pax at the beginning that led me to doing the new Sarah workout. Got some comments about going off campus, some about not wanting to run and one Pax member noting he did not have any gloves this morning. So, given all that feedback, I improvised and decided that we would not venture more than 100 yards away from our cars and have a beatdown in a limited area.

Many comments about the Bruins and the game last night. Yes, I know they lost. One of the great things about hockey is that you never know who is going to prevail. St. Louis had the worst record in the league on Jan 2 and turned things around and won the cup. Congrats to the Blues on their first Stanley Cup. Would have liked to see Boston win, but with 12 championships in the past 18 years, I think we are good.

Marv posted for a bootcamp this morning. Maybe I shouldn’t be surprised, but I don’t think I have seen him at a bootcamp in some time. What next Marv? Are you going to post a backlist for a workout that you Q? Say it aint so.

Vinny and Swirly were talking about seer sucker suits last night on the run. Honestly, I don’t know (nor do I want to know) what a seer sucker is, but any men’s fashion that has rules on what time of year you can wear them is completely BS. Whats next? are we going to have to go to the bathroom in pairs now. Please.

The only explanation that I have for the seer sucker suit is that the first salesman that sold one turned to his buddy and said “SEE theRe, I just sold that SUCKER the ugliest suit for a premium price, he must be from the south”

TYA Out. Thanks for letting me lead today.

  1. I dont think Vinny actually dresses up for work, because I said “you arent the only one that knows about Men’s Warehouse”. He responded with “what’s a Men’s Warehouse?” I dont know about you all, but I dont think Sears has a men’s section, am I right?

    If you tuck in an F3 shirt, they actually look pretty classy, anyhow.

  2. Those are fighting words TYA. I bet you’d perk up for some seer sucker Nike Pro running tights. Also, Swirly and I aren’t the ones who left our home land to move South, just saying. Lab Rat, you missed the boat again. If it can’t be purchased at Brooks Brothers, I don’t know what it is.

    Nice beat down today TYA. Sarah would be proud. “TeamNantucketReds

  3. Ladies and gentlemen, we have the bottoms for our 2020 West Emd uniform for field day.
