After a drizzly and ill advised pre-run we took that last turn to home to find a pretty large crowd ready to go and YHC was hoping not to disappoint.

A quick disclaimer, I’m sure I covered everything and we were off.


Cirlce up for SSH, Hillbillies and Weedpickers.  I heard some PAX say that they could feel that I had that Q juice and was ready for action so we got straight to it.

The Thang:

4 corners. Lunge walk the short sides, mosey by the goal, Bernie Sanders on the far end of the goal box.

Merkins on each corner.  We started with 25, then rinsed and repeat with 20, 15, 10, 5, and then zero just for kicks.  Shuttle runs from the goal line to the 18 yard line for the 6.  Lots of 10 counts were enjoyed.

We were already at the wall so we jumped up and did 25 steps ups and 25 LBCs.  Rinse and repeat 20, 15, 10, 5.  About halfway through we broke off for an Indian run and did merkins on each corner and then finished up.  We needed a nice round number and we finished with 333 merkins.

We still had some time so we did a few dips on the wall and sprinted the full field for squats.

Back to the flag for some (lots) of American Hammers, something else maybe, and Dreamer closed us out with some burpees.


Continued prayers for our brother Wikka Wikka in his search for a kidney and that his labs don’t show that he needs to start dialysis.

Prayers for Spandex’s mother in law who is hospitalized with pneumonia.

Stay aware of the upcoming 5k to support Pancreatic Cancer research and to honor Laces’ (not sure where to put the apostraphe) and Fire Drill’s dad Cliff Ramos who we lost last year.


Important note that next week we will be moving to 5:15am, some were thrilled, some not so much.  We’ll see if this is the end of the Gladiator pre-runs.

2nd F at Taco Mac tomorrow sponsored by Shiner.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

Always an honor to lead this group of men.  I don’t know what I’d do without y’all.  You have all each had a hand in getting me through lifes ups and downs.  Y’all do the most important thing you can do in life…. you show up.

Tebow out
