Patriot Day at Twin Team


5 PAX braved the swampy air just south of the James to join together for a beat down on Patriot Day at Twin Team. According the awesome trucker who gave us a “toot toot”, here is how it went down:


DTH grabbed the shovel flag it was carried proudly to the top of Twin Team. Stopped at the bottom for quick welcome and disclaimer. Don Quixote and Russian Soldiers done in cadence. Then back down and head to dirt track between playgrounds.


Plant the flag for an Old Glory. 20 minute timer set. AMRAP 4 corners with 20 merkins, 20 jump squats, 10 burpees, 20 WW2s. As we neared the end of the time, we returned for the six and finished as a unified PAX. Carried the flag back the way we came, up Twin Team and back down to the parking lot. (BTTOSFS)

Numbers, names, announcements (see below). Instead of a normal COT we ended with a moment of silence.


YHC didn’t realize when grabbing the Q which day it was. There was a strong feeling within to do something appropriate today. What could be more appropriate than an Old Glory with two runs up Twin Team? It was great to see different members of the PAX volunteering to take turns carrying the shovel flag throughout the work out.

As shared at the COT, 9/11 was the single deadliest terrorist event in history and the single deadliest incident for firefighters and police officers in history. We have a lot to be thankful for.

  2. Great idea Boberry…well except including Twin Team in the workout. Man that hill sucks. Add DTH’s extra heavy SF and OUCH!

    Great work guys. Great to share the gloom with you in remembrance today especially. Great call on the moment of silence.
