U2 Live at Caney Creek

AO: Caney Creek

When: 07/18/2018


PAX (): Biscuit Barn, Mulligan, Nacho Libre, Pothole, Isotope, Greenhouse, TO

Seven Pax gathered shortly before 0515 at Caney Creek to get their sweat on.  All the necessary ingredients were on hand to make it so.  94% humidity, 12 sided dice, iPhone with U2  loaded and a portable speaker.   The clock struck 0515, a toilet flushed in the nearby restroom, the last pax emerged (running theme lately at Caney) and the pax bounded up four flights of stairs for a lap around the top of the hill and back down for a quick warm up.

Warm Up:  Weed Picker, Imperial Walker and Wind Mill

The Thang

Partner up for some never ending Dora.  A pax would roll the 12 sided dice to determine the exercise from a numbered list.  Start the U2 Play List and one partner runs up the stairs to the top of the hill while the other does the exercise until relieved.  Repeat until the song ends.  Roll the dice, select the exercise and keep going until the clock strikes 0600.  There was an awkward moment when With or Without You was playing and Nacho, with a twinkle in his eye suggested the song would be better enjoyed in the company of the fairer sex (and not a bunch of sweaty guys?).  Pothole then reminisced about it being his prom song.  YHC got the hint and will strike from future beatdown music.  But, YHC is always picking up intel from the younger guys in the group  and most definitely took note,  placing that song on the play list for date night this weekend.
