Fields of …. Glory


A dirty and soon-to-be slushy dozen posted to No Toll to see what was up. Here’s how it went down:

The THANG: grab the shovel flag and mosey to the lower parking lot for Old Glory

Two laps around all fields (1 mile)

  • corner 1: merkins x 20
  • corner 2: jump squats x 20
  • corner 3: burpees x 10 (x 20 if you’re a Davillian)
  • corner 4: WWIIs x 20

AMLAP in 20:00 minutes

Two laps around all fields (1 mile) to Double Your Pleasure™️

BTTF for Merkin Ring of Fire and some old man cool down stretches.

Numbers, names, and YHC took us out.

NMMS: “…the mind changes and converts every hindrance to its activity into an aid; and so that which is a hindrance is made a furtherance to an act, and that which is an obstacle on the road helps us on this road.” Marcus Aurelius, Meditations 5.20 (trans. G. Long (1862)).

The PAX found many obstacles on the road this morning – mid 30s temps (a/k/a 70 degrees and sunny), wet-ass ice fields and a Q determined to run through them and do burpees. As individuals and a group, the PAX adapted, overcame and embraced the suck — pushing themselves and each other to do something hard instead of easy; to get more comfortable being uncomfortable.

When life cuts you or those you love a raw deal, will you raise your hand and say “I got this”? You can find an answer in the Gloom.

  1. Great Q. Nothing starts the day like the soggy fields of No Toll. Been a long time since I participated in Old Glory or what I refer to as the Four Corners of Hell. Ring of Fire never felt so good. Amazing job today.
