It’s 5:30, Windjammers. Rise & Shine! A 9PAX of @FalseStart @Cookie @MilliVanilli @Feathers @Cox @Funyan @Zohan @Brutus & @WalkieTalkie headed out into the dark humid gloom for an 8-20-2021 Beatdown.


Mosey to the upper parking lot for some Side Straddle Hops, Weed Pickers, Hillbillies, ArmCircles & COVIDs.

The Thang:

Grab a coupon! DJ Jazzy Walkie Talkie had prepared a sick 9-song 80s throwback playlist that looked a little something like this…

Billie Jean  – Merkins & run in two teams

Jump – Jump Squats of course & run (coupon optional)

Don’t Stop Believin’ – LBCs & run (hold on to that feeling!

Orange Crush – Curls w/coupon & run

Welcome to the Jungle – Group Lunges & Burpees on “WTTJ”

Down Under Skull Crushers w/coupon & run
You Shook Me – Freddie Mercuries & run
Pour Some Sugar – Elf on the Shelf w/coupon & run

Roxanne – Group SSH & Burpees on “Roxanne” & “Red Light” in two teams; a @Brutus special request. How many times do we have to say it, Roxanne?

We had a very slow mosey (ok, stroll) back to the flag & a short round of Mary where @Feathers introduced us to the one-armed-shoulder-tap-merkin which was NOT easy. Nice work and great sweat! 80s tunes will never die.


Reminder that Darth Visor Memorial Convergence workout is tomorrow 8/21 at Fowler Park; arrive by 6:40; breakfast to follow beatdown

Thanks to @MilliVanilli for sharing some Truth. He reminded us to greet everyone the same and remember that you don’t know what they may be dealing or struggling with. He also encouraged us to make random calls of encouragement to those in our lives. You never know the impact of a simple call, note, or smile. 

Prayers that our world can remember that it is ok and normal to disagree. We can certainly still show love and be friends with those we disagree with. 

Shoutout to @Brutus for completion of sprint triathalon.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

As the late Michael Jackson said in Billie Jean, “as mother always told me, be careful who you love. And be careful of what you do, ‘cause the lie becomes the truth.”

As the late Eddie Van Halen said in Jump, “you got to roll with the punches to get to what’s real.”
