All was quiet at The Last Resort when YHC arrived. 5:30 rolled around, and it stayed that way. Since YHC forgot his gloves, today’s beatdown turned into a run, with a couple of merkins in there for good measure. Notes: It’s really pleasant to hear the birds waking up while running around in a gentle rain.

YHC volunteered to take the reigns of this awesome AO and I pulled into the parking lot at 5:26, it was raining and windy so no shovel flag. I wait and with no one around I decide to run the mile to get that off the list for today. While on the run I had no reflectors, no head lap (left at home) and it was very dark with the heavy cloud cover. I passed two people who were walking in this weather on the way out to the turn around spot, turn around and return to the school. Still…

Six socially-distanced strongmen appeared out of the gloom for a beatdown at The Last Resort. Churchill had such a good time in his FNG personal training session from last week that he brought his little brother along for the fun. Here’s how it went down: Mosey down the street for our contractually-obligated continuous mile for starters. Return to school, head to the back porch for COP. SSH, Imperial Walkers, Don Quixote, LBCs, 6 inches. Return of the AquaBear: bearcrawl the length of the bus ramp, punctuated by a burpee at each set of columns. Kickin’ Triple Check: donkey kicks, flutter…

Two men arrived at The Last Resort…one of them not sure what to think of the flyer that appeared in his mailbox over the weekend. YHC didn’t scare him off, and so it was on: Take a lap around the parking lot, then COP: SSH, Don Quixote, Russian Soldiers, American Hammers, copperhead squats, merkins. Mosey to the bus ramp for a return of last week’s AquaBear (bear crawl the length of the bus ramp, with a burpee at each column). Mosey to the playground for a modified triple check: one man completes a bouldering lap around the climbing wall while…

Six dedicated stalwarts woke up to the soothing sound of rain, thermometers that read 42, and said, “Ahhh, just right.” While the rain surely kept any and all FNGs away from this brand new AO, the PAX made the most of our new surroundings, particularly the generous amount of covered space surrounding the building. Here’s what went down: Mosey to the Back Porch for COP: SSH, Don Quixote, helicopters, Russian soldiers, Freddie Mercury, LBCs, hand-release merkins. Part 1: The AquaBearOn a variation from the Polar Bear, PAX AquaBear the length of the bus ramp (AquaBear = bear crawl with a…
