Table for 12 for Gumbo


12 SOJ faithful put on their bibs and bellied up to the table for a steaming pot of Gumbo. It was served up hot with the following side dishes and garnishes:

Start a mosey toward Mount Midlo just to raise some concern and get some mumblechatter going, then turn right and head to the front of the school for the disclaimer and COP, including:

  • SSHs
  • DQs
  • Helicopters
  • Jazzercisers
  • Imperial Walkers
  • Copperhead Squats
  • LBCs


Curb Crawls – bearcrawl across, 1 merkin, crawl bear back, 2 merkins. Up to 5 and back down to 1.

Touch A Tree — Slowsey down to the large parking lot for Touch A Tree – 4 rounds, escalating from 1 tree to 4 trees, no repeats. Partner alternates between Freddie Mercuries in the odd rounds and Hand Release Merkins in the even rounds.

Alley Work – 3 burpees to start for the run differential between the Yanks and Guardians – just for Nancy. Lunge to Door #5 and do 5 more burpees just because. Side Lunge for a bit and then mosey to the wall (say HEYYY to a few runners).

Wall Work – 3 rounds (I think?)

  • 25 DKs, 15, merkins, jog, 15 Jump Squats, bernie back, wall sit
  • 30, 20, 20 (honestly, YHC can’t remember if we did this or if I audibled out of it…old age)

Field Work – partner up at mid-field and face your partner

  • Round 1 – 1 Boo-yah Merkin (2 merkins with hand claps in between with partner), each partner run to their respective sideline and do 10 box cutters, run back and plank for partner and for SIX.
  • Round 2 – 2 Boo-yah Merkins, 20 box cutters
  • Round 3 – 3 and 30
  • Round 4 – 4 and 40

Staying in 2 lines – Indigenous People’s Run to far end of the field and around the track back to the bottom of the hill

Triple Check – Partner 1 runs up hill and back, Partner 2 does flutter kicks, Partner 3 does shoulder taps.

Meet final group on their way down the hill (or Oyster at the bottom) and back to the Flag.
