Good Riddance Gumbo…


Gumbo was a last-minute menu addition at SOT and 11 men (the bootcampers) were regretting placing that order immediately. They declared Gumbo’s SOJ banishment half-way through. The 4 runners chose wisely.

In any event, this is how the Gumbo was served today:

Mosey down to bus loop for COP, including:

  • SSHs
  • DQs
  • Helicopters
  • Jazzercisers – Nancy’s super power. That dude would kill in an 80’s aerobics class.
  • Imperial Walkers
  • Copperhead squats
  • Merkins
  • LBCs

Mosey around the side of school for the start of the THANG

Door #5 – 5 Burpees OYO

Door #6 – 6 2-count ball dippers

Wall Work

10 Donkey Kicks, bear crawl across road, 10 merkins, crawl bear back and wall sit

15 Donkey Kicks, bear crawl across road, 15 merkins, crawl bear back and wall sit

Mosey around the side and back of the school mixing in some lunges and Bob and Weaves, then down the stairs to the football field.

Field Work

Football Field – start on the end-line and run to bench (about 30 yards) and do 25 merkins, bernie back, run to trash can (about 60 yards) and do 20 WWIIs, mosey back, run all the way to the other end and do 50 SSHs and run back.

Baseball Field/Light poles – start in far right field – run across the field stopping at each light pole – at each tall light pole do 20 squats and 20 LBCs (though some heard YHC say WWIIs – extra credit for them!!). At each short light pole do 5 burpees. There were 3 tall light poles and 2 short light poles. Down and back.

Recovery mosey lap around the track

Jacob’s Ladder – after checking out he busted pipe spewing water (and DK going to make a non-emergency call to 911 – i.e., skipping Jacob’s Ladder), PAX lined up half-way up the hill for Jacob’s Ladder. Run to top do 1 modified 4×4 (really a 4×1) – down to plank position, do 4 mountain climbers and 1 merkin then pop up. Back to start, do 2. Repeato until 7.

BTTF for Mary (Freddies, Box Cutters, Swizzle Sticks and APDs)

Numbers, Names and COT

Announcements and Prayers

  • Prayers for all PAX and family members dealing with injuries and illnesses
  • See TYA if you are interested in BRR, especially if you are interested in leading a second team
  • Mark your calendar for 9/24 Retreat

Great start to the day. To the chagrin of many, this is will NOT be Gumbo’s last SOT Q. No farewell yet. Thanks gents.

No More Gumbo For You!
