Board of Pain Comes to Alpharetta

When: 09/01/15

QIC: Hickory Stick

PAX (): Firebird, Nacho Libre, Boomer, Trojan, Mufasa, No-See-Um, Law Dog, Peanut, Crack, Soprano, Darth Visor, Sketchy, Defcon 2, Light Bulb, Swiper

15 PAX is a crowd, then add on Sketchy who generally 5 min behind and there is a full swarm of PAX in the Rubicon.  This was talked up, preblast tweets, warnings, etc. The men of Alpharetta wanted a challenge, and I think this was just awful enough to meet expectations.

No warm-up, 10 counts on your own.  OYO for 45 minutes.

PAX did great.  I had no idea what to expect.  Coworker asked Monday “so how far you going to get?” I had no clue.  It was every bit as awful as I hoped, but what isn’t that starts with 100 Burpees.
A few PAX got through the 100 Makhtar N’Diayes, with Firebird leading the way finishing the additional 0.25 mile run as well.
Only competition was yourself.  So whether you wanted to do a “grits squat” or a “trojan perfect pushup” that’s up to you.  We’ll do it again in a few weeks/months and see how far we’ve come.
