Wondering where the flag was…



Attempted Soap Droppers (modified ‘weed’ picker)



The Thang:

We moseyed over toward the coupon trap, where each Pax picked up a healthy coupon. Split into two lines, and began an Indian run headed toward the ‘donut circle’ carrying coupons. We dropped the coupons there, and moseyed on down to the bottom parking lot to the bottom of the Hill of Pain. After partnering up, first man wheelbarrows halfway up the hill where he completes 10 Merkins while the partner that walked the wheelbarrow up completes 10 squats and 10 burpees. They then switch places, and continue to top of hill, where the man wheelbarrowing also completes 10 Merkins and other partner that walked him up completes 10 squats and 10 burpees.

Garfield then received death threats, but he wasn’t worried because he felt he may have heart attack before anyone can kill him.

Jog to bottom of hill and plank for the 6, then rinse and repeat again – except round 2 reps were increased from 10 to 20 reps.

Jog back to bottom, plank for the 6. Quick shuffle to the stadium.

Teams split up and start at bottom and top of the stadiums, raccoon crawling across each bleacher. Once the teams met in the middle of the sets of bleachers, quick breather and then started to work our way back the way we came.

Mosey back to where we left coupons, and then mosey with those back to coupon trap. Return to the non-existent flags.



Circle up for some MARY at the non-existent flag (and non-existent FUBAR flag):

Legionnaire: Flutterkicks

Garfield: LBCs (little boy crunches – for you Smurfette)

Katniss: Hello Dolly’s

Legionnarie: Iron Crosses

Manning: The Bobby Hurley ‘special’


Welcome FNG – Dorothy (lovely red shoes)

Lots of good things happening in Cherokee F3. Holly Springs AO (The Cheetah) starting May 22, 2018 every Tuesday, with site Q Ricky Bobby

I should have paid attention to specific dates better, but Manning is going to be site Q for downtown Woodstock AO starting early June, and there is a ‘mixed’ beatdown at Veterans Park with FIA (Females in Action) and 2.0’s. Bring your 2.0’s and M’s and we will have a beatdown for everyone.

Continued prayers for Homeboy’s Dad

The prayer and purpose of this beatdown are closely linked. After speaking with Dandy post-beatdown, he mentioned it was fun to embrace the suck. And that was my intention for the exercises that were chose today – everything I truly hate. My prayer is that we can all embrace even the suck of life, since we all go through plenty of those. Let us be thankful that we can even have the ability to do things that we don’t like doing. Some the of the best ‘growth’ periods of my spiritual life have come during ‘sucky’ events. I ask that God be with us during these periods/trials, and let Him remind us that He is with us and can carry all burdens for us.

Love you all – Garf.
