0530 Handshake is all-alone in the parking lot. On a rare day that YHC didn’t have to launch early to get home early so The M could run, YHC was solo. YHC thought about giving it 2 minutes before setting off on a solo Q/Pax workout when out of the gloom two cars came screeching in, Loose Goose (the actual Q) and Lighthouse. Upon his fashionable entrance and fresh-from-the Rolodex reason for his tardiness Loose Goose asked if the Pax wanted to run the originally planned Lucky Horseshoe as The Three Amigos. YHC can’t remember what Lighthouse said, but YHC…

It is never a good sign when the PAX is eager and ready to tackle the gloom, but the Q fails to appear.  This morning 5 mighty warriors overcame this speed bump and adjusted on the fly.  Here is how the Circus hot potato went down: Johnsonville COPDQIWInvisible jump ropesSeries of planksLBCsAPDsTurn over to AttilaAMRAPs with 30 seconds on and series of breaks starting a 15, then 10, then 5 secondsOverhead pullsSkull crushersSit ‘n pressesAmerican KB hammersRun the bus loopTurn over to Offshore for a triple checkMerkin rowsCurlsEscalating bear crawl – 6, 12, 18 parking spotsTurnover to White DeerMosey to…

Nineteen eager pavement pounders gathered at the commons and watched Circle K drive around looking for a parking spot. Lug Nut apparently came in hot and missed the festivities so he threw his own party. As expected, directions were withheld until T-minus 30 seconds. Run as a group through fraternity row and gather at the base of Horsepen and Waveny. The ThangIntervals up Waveny. 1 minute up at about 75% intensity and recover back to the bottom in 1:45. Repeat x4. Mosey up to Shrewsbury. Long intervals up Horsepen. 2 minutes up at whatever intensity you feel appropriate and recover…

7 stalwarts fought off the fart sack for YHC’s return to the Q sheet after sleeping through the last sign-up. Clear skies, cool temps, fall mist and a heavy fog brought back a sneak peak of swamp season at Heartbreak Ridge. While the PAX shivered and mumbled over the shorts-only mandate, the Miata’s older brother Bolted into the circle and Ronnie emerged. 530? It’s go time. Mosey around the Bus Lot and back to the fields for COP SSHs, DQs, Imperial Walkers, Merkins, Arm Circles. Warm? Let’s Boogie.

Guatemala Medical Mission Trip 2019 – After a long clinic day in a remote jungle village, then a harrowing 4×4 trek across flooding rivers (had to tow the van stuck mid-river on one of them), we finally arrived back at the hotel and Seadoo joined YHC to cool off in the pool before dinner. No sooner had we arrived but the heavens opened and we swam a few laps while thick cold rain pelted us from above and drowned out the mumble chatter. YHC suggested a little Dora action might be fun, and Seadoo readily agreed. No sooner had we…
