Great day for a beat down – 65 degrees, it had just rained earlier and stopped by the time we were about to get going. 2 Gladiators pealed out of the gloom just ending a pre run.

The thought for the day is know your ‘why’. 48 hrs of GoRuck selection had ended on the weekend with 226 registered and only 59 started. That means  167 had quit even before starting. These 16 Gladiators that showed up the morning have no quit in them.

This is the story of what happened.


Mosey Warm Up Lap doing high knees, butt kickers and sideways run around parking lot. Mozy to next parking lot followed by, all IC:

  • SSH
  • Imperial Walkers
  • Windmills
  • Sumo Squats

The Thang:

Mozy to the main soccer field. Groans when the next evolution was announced. We were here to work.

Quarter Pounder :

  • Start at Goal line, sprint to build out line.
  • 25 Merkins at build out line, backwards run to start
  • Sprint to halfway line  for 50 Squats, backwards run to start
  • Sprint to second build out line for 75 Mountain Climbers (Alpha count), backwards run to start
  • Sprint to other goal line for 100 SSH, backwards run to start
  • Mary for the 6.

Pair up

  • Bear crawl to edge of penalty box
  • 3 Burpees
  • Crawl bear back while the other planks
  • Switch
  • Rinse and repeat 2 more times for a total of 3 rounds

Scout run

  • Almost like Indian run, slow run with man in front sprinting to the nearest corner and back. He tags the next front man and rejoins the line at the back.

Partner up for Lazy Dora  – each count is total for the pair:

  • 100 Merkins while partner planks
  • 200 LBCs while partner holds 6 inches
  • 300 squats while partner squats

Back to flag for some Mary:

  • Freddy Mercury IC
  • 10 Get ups OYO


  • Night Ruck leaves The Rubicon at 9 pm.
  • Tebow has started a meal train for Ashley. Please check slack for details.
  • Prayers for each man as he seeks to get better and improve the world around him.

Romans 12:2 – “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”

We’re all being transformed and every man coming out to a BD is also helping to transform the next man.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

  • Thanks to Viking for the great music selection
  • Viking and Manchester the beasts for the pre run
  • Brownie, Laces and Bo Knows the hares for the quarter pounder
  • Looking forward to Moonshine Q Thursday
