Pretty cool to be the only AO where you can open and close the work week. It was a good morning to explore and find the nooks and crannies where the bones are buried.


SSH, weed pickers, arm circles, squats

The Thang:

We took the outer loop around the perimeter of Newtown, about a mile in total. We stopped 4 times to crank out a set of Merkins (10 in cadence) regular, wide arm, military, regular.

We moved on to a rather tedious circuit workout:

1. 10 wall jumps (or step ups)/1 derkin (along the fountain pond)

2. Run up the stairs and down the trail to where it intersects with main trail. Do 5 burpees

3. Run to the tunnel, do 10 Merkins, bearcrawl through said tunnel, do 10 more Merkins. Then run back to the fountain pond.

Rinse and repeat with the only difference being 9 wall jumps/2 derkins, then so on. We stopped when time was up and moseyed back to the flag.



Both Soft Serve and Speedo shared some challenges that their fathers are facing with regards to health and their respective spiritual journeys. We had a moment of silence – and opportunity to think, reflect, and pray.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

4 for coffeeteria where we debated the virtues of frou-frou coffee and truck stop coffee. Honestly some times a cup of trucker sludge hits quite nicely.
