With Tropical Storm Delta, pushing its way through the Southeast US, the rain was coming down in buckets, all night long. When 12 stout men reached Shadow AO, the rains stopped, the clouds parted…sort of, and for 60 minutes, the only water the PAX found was on the pavement, and YHC made certain that all who posted, found it early and often.


After a very brief mosey up to the Austin parking lot, we circled up and got after it (all IC and all x12 – two rounds)

  • Imperial Walkers
  • SSH
  • Sumo Squats
  • Windmills
  • Stone Mountains

Finished up with some “Moroccan Night Club”, just so Suds could entertain us.

The Thang:

Time to get it on, and get wet.

We ran from the middle gate to and thru the end gate, where we paused for 10 hand release merkins, then off we went to the top of the driveway at Roberts where we paused again for 20 squats, and away we went to the top crest of the hill on the DNC driveway, where we did 30 curb dips, and then down the hill and through the gate, and back to where it all began. This was all OYO. (the fast guys did 5 rounds, the less motivated among us only cranked out 4, but we all felt it)

We circled up for some Mary (all IC and all x15):

  • Rosalita (Dunwoody Debbie)
  • Low Dolly (Low-lalita)
  • American Hammer
  • Leon’s Box Cutters
  • Big Block Alphabet (Capital letters, 72 point, Helvetica) – OYO
  • Obliques (Left and Right)
  • Low Scissors
  • Big boy situps – 15 – OYO
  • Roll over for 3 rounds of Super-Man (30 seconds) with 5 HRMs after each round

Recover and mosey over to the back wall of Austin.

Wall-sits (3 rounds / 60 second each / lots of counting) after each round, we ran across the parking lot and dropped down for 5 HRMs and then ran back.

We gathered at the back gate for suicides (two rounds), between the gates. Markers were the 4 center trees and the far gate. There was some mumble chatter, especially after YHC announced there was a 2nd round.

15 more big boy sit-ups for good measure, and YHC called time.



Rum-runner took us out with some words of wisdom.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

Seles reclaimed War Daddy, if only for the day.
