Thirteen randomly dressed middle aged men assembled near the high pitched hissing generator for today’s 45 Minutes of Mary. Many wondered if it would be 45 minutes of merkins given the gauntlet thrown by El Doctor on the other side of the river. Alas, no gluttony, just a healthy dosage of merkins.

Sprint across the field, do X number of merkins, 20 leg exercises, 30 ab exercises then sprint back and repeat, adding 1 number to the merkin count each time. Planks and Señor Gore’s between even sets to collect the PAX

Jovial saunter and circle up around the pull up bar for ring of fire. 5x pull ups while plankorama ensues. Hitchhiker awarded the Merkin Presidential Award to Swirly during the process.
Cozy little stroll back to the VSF for 21 merkins since we had another minute.
YHC forgot to prompt for announcements but we counted our digits and proclaimed our given and re-given names before YHC took us out.
Quite a lively crew today and Marv took much of the brunt of pre-launch banter due to his choice of outfits. That and his appearance for Mary which used to be a staple of his. Glad to have you out.
Other poking and prodding of individuals was limited during the workout until the end when TYA’s math skillz were highlighted. Proud of his ability to recant Gauss’ formula and his overwhelming confidence in his correct answer that the number of merkins performed was 210 for the day, YHC gave him the opportunity to think about his answer and then call me later in the day to discuss. After showing his math, TYA did realize his mistake and the walls came crumbling down. My attempt to be gracious in victory was overwhelmed with TYAs desire to be right.
231 gentlemen. Even Carl the kindergartener could have figured that one out.
