Dumpster diving at Hoedown


Eight eager PAX picked up a LoveSeat on the side of the road to make it an odd number 9 for some Merkins. We also did some other stuff:

COP: SSH, Merkins, Imperial Walkers, Hairy Rocketts, Merkins, Flutterkicks, Scorpion Kicks, Merkins. Mosey over to 3P dark lot for 4 corners: 20 Merkins, 30 WWIIs, 40 JumpSquats, 50 LBCS. Alternate run & bear crawl.

Over to Rite Aid lot: 4 Rounds of 10 Merkins, backwards run length then 5 Burpees. Back to TES, the blacktop: Broad Jump across, 20 Merkins then lunge back, 15 Heels2Heaven. Repeato x3. With parking lot lights finally on head over for: 5 Merkins per arrow, bear crawl around loop.

Back to Flag for Upchuck APDs, Hello Dollies, Freddy Mercury, & finish with 20 merkins. YHC took us out.

NMS: First legit cold morning of the fall with temps at 33. Long sleeve weather (SOP natch’) with some opting for hats as well. YHC was expecting more attendance with 5 am feeling like 6 am but 9 strong we were.

Plenty of merkins this morning, total count was 280 for those in the challenge. YHC decided afterward to sign up at day 4. Never too late sign up! Good to see Ponch and Love Seat back out in the gloom. Now if we can just get Keymaster and Slurpee back out at Hoedown…

  1. Sorry to miss…double bummer to miss the Upchuck APDs. They may work even better with a Swirly-style “Hoollllddd-it!” in the mix.
