YHC didn’t actually realize that his Q fell on Cinco de Mayo until the evening prior, which meant a mad scramble to cobble together something thematic and deserving of the occasion. Alas, it wouldn’t be Raider-esque but it would have to do.
Short mosey up the main road toward the large parking lot for the following warm-ups:
Q led PAX toward the field where a (very excited) Turbine noticed an all-to-familiar whiteboard leaning against the goalpost. Would PAX be getting Board of Pain for Cinco de Mayo? Alas, no – but YHC did conjure up something special for 5/5 – the Angry Mexican, accompanied by some sweet Tijuana Brass just for the occasion (no GM, that was NOT Kenny G).
The format was fairly straightforward once you understood it – the board outlined a list of exercises that were to be performed on the field. Repetitions of each exercise PLUS <favorite animal>-Crawls for yardage must add up to 55. For example, PAX could choose to Bear Crawl for 30yds and do 25 Merkins. All exercises had to be performed twice – once down the field, and second time on the return trip. Any combination of reps/yards was allowed.
Exercises included (in order):
American Hammers (4-count)
With T-10 remaining on the clock, Q called all PAX to the center of the field for a round of Hot Tamale – each PAX would take turns doing 5 Burpees while their brethren performed Merkins in-cadence. Note to self – this was notably harder than Morning Call.
Return to the flag for a quick round of Mary before time was called.
Welcome FNG Lasso!
Converge on 5/8 at Riverside Park in Roswell (0600 pre-run/pre-ruck, 0630 BD).
Prayers for Juul who is looking for a new gig (may this be a blessing in disguise).
