Cheers to 5 years!


A band of 14 gathered for a Handshake Anniversary Q and this is what transpired:

Mosey to far Roundabout over by the Devil’s Triangle for a COP of various exercises. We could see Fudd cruising in fashionably late.

Mosey to the Sunken Field and pick up Fudd along the way. Mini Beast while completing 5 reps for each iteration. Round 1 – 5 Hand Release Merkins, Round 2 – 5 (2) Count Flutter Kicks, Round 3 – Jump Squats

Mosey to the bottom of the Amphitheater – Round 1 (Bottom to top) – 5 Carolina Dry Docks, 5 WWII’s, Round 2 (Top to bottom) – 5 Jump Squats, 5 LBC’s

Mosey to the Rusty Cage with a partner – P1 5 Merkins, P2 5 Jerkins and switch, repeat 3 times

Mosey out the back of the Rusty Cage and down the hill. Mixed numbers for an off-balance Pipe Loop Triple Check (first Pipe Loop of the season). P1 – Runs the Pipe Loop, P2 – Squats, P3 – Flutter Kicks. Triple Check was cut short on the account of time.

Mosey back towards the flag doing an Indigenous Peoples Run. We passed Garbage Plate on the run. When we got back to the flag Upchuck was waiting there for us.

Announcements – Oyster mentioned Breaking Bread is now opening back up for serving food, not just a drop and go (this is a change since Covid changed the rules). RAAM Gears – last Friday of March there will be a Amateur Hour Costume Contest (March 31st).

Prayer Requests – Slipping Jimmy’s Great Aunt Teresa passed away, she was 101 years old. A former employee of Upchucks is going through a lot of things in her life. Please pray for her and others in the same situation.

NMS – it was a great morning. My 2.0 (Moss) said last night he wanted to come to the workout. He’s come a long way in the 4 years since he first came to a Puppy Pile and he was able to hang with the crew. It was nice to share this with him and for him to see the guys. I really appreciate what this group has given me, I don’t know where i’d be if I never came out. My M was so inspired by the First Watch “Season of Giving” that she surprised me (albeit a week early) with a Cooler full of PBR and M&M’s to give the guys after the workout. It was funny to see Bodo’s break the stereotypes by being the first one into the cooler and immediately cracked the beer at 0710. Gomer commented that you can’t drink all day if you don’t start early! Also Happy Birthday to Slipping Jimmy!
