Always 70 and Sunny
Always 70 and Sunny

Thank you Alan Adler


In case you are wondering Alan Adler is a serial inventor, and creator of YHC’s favorite coffee maker called the Aeropress, along with the Aerobie. What is an Aerobie you ask, it’s a difficult to catch frisbee like device that can fly for hundreds of feet. You can find them on rooftops of suburban houses back in the mid 90s. Bet you didn’t know that the Aerobie holds the Guinness book of world records for the farthest thrown object. Here is how things went down for the 5 Wdog warriors this morning.

YHC started off with some stretching, always important to stretch. Dead man hangs, reach for the skies, a few others, finishing out with ‘the sprinkler’.

Then mosey on over to the sunken field for a modified version of ultimate frisbee – name is still in the works. The way it was ‘supposed’ to work, everyone gathers at the end of the field, the group has 5 minutes to make it to the end of the field and back, continually passing the frisbee, or in this case the Aerobie, a difficult to catch object made even more difficult with the low light conditions. Every time the Aerobie drops, the PAX drops and does 5 burpees, clock does not stop. If the team does not make it back in the 5 minutes, 20 burpees. Bodos did the math and said well why not just throw it all the way to the end and run and do the 5 burpees anyhow. That was the last we saw of the Aerobie for the rest of the workout. YHC called the workout and onward to the next activity.

The PAX was off to the penny stage to pick up a coupon, then mosey on over to the amphitheater. Using the coupons as a ‘book mark’ the PAX took their coupon and did one block burpee at each step up the ampitheater, leaving the coupon on the level to remind them where to come back to, after each block burpee run down to the bottom and back up to the block and repeato all the way up to the top.

At the top there was time for a quick block merkin ring of fire, keeping feet on the blocks. Then it was back down the amphitheater steps, this time each level 5 WW2s, and using the coupon as the ‘bookmark’.

Then it was time to return the coupons to their home, and some time left over to pay homage to our brethren Pigskin with some donkey kicks and wall sits on the penny stage. The PAX also preformed a structural integrity evaluation of the penny stage to ensure that it was strong enough to withstand our mighty donkey kicks – HEEEE HAWWWWW

Mosey back to the flag for names numbers and announcements.

Mumble chatter: Some thoughts were shared that wow it takes a lot longer to go up and down the amphitheater when we actually keep track with the ‘bookmarks’. Big thank you to Bodos for going back out afterwards and finding the Aerobie.

It was an absolute pleasure to lead this crew this morning!

    That was a good one, Faceplant. Pretty funny when Bodos got tired of the burpees and chucked the Aerobie into the woods:)

  2. Faceplant we always appreciate the creativity you bring! Sorry about chucking your toy into the woods. I really need to work on not being such a bully…
