With 6 days to go until Halloween, along with the lack of light at the Boneyard, it was the perfect venue for Part Deux of the Beatdown Trilogy of Terror: The Sad Clown Killer. The Sad Clown is decelerating in their fitness (and can impact others, joining his ally The Fartsack Slasher for nefarious purposes), so it was our job to fight back and make sure that none of our brothers fall victim.
As we had an FNG (we added another along the way, but more on that later), made sure to spend a little extra time on the standard disclaimer. With that we were off……
12 Weed Picker
10 Moroccan Nightclubs
10 Side Straddle Hops
1/4 mile mosey to the beatdown site
Moseyed to the lacrosse field; track laid with lanterns so that pax could see lines to reach on each side of the field.
Simple (but not easy) Killer B’s up/down ladder, consisting of reps of 5-10-15-20-25-20-15-10-5 for the following exercises:
Burpees/Bonnie Blairs (alpha count), at completion of reps for each Bernie Sanders across the field to do Big Boy situps and Bobby Hurley’s at the same rep level, Bernie Sanders back across to the starting point and proceed to the next ladder rung.
Plank for the 6
Recover, deployed across the sideline again for Jack Webb’s (remember, IT’S ONLY AIR!)
Mosey back to the parking lot for some Mary (only 2 minutes this time), with Gas Pumpers and Rosalitas
We continued prayer’s for Maguire’s cousin, Marsha, as she continues her battles against cancer as well as her upcoming thyroid procedures.
Prayers for Stroller and his wife as they welcome their new baby – that the birth is as uneventful as possible (and that they are able to adapt to their new normal)
First time Q-ing at the Boneyard, and what’s neat is that we’re seeing organic growth of the AO already – intentional and accidental. Moving into a new AO (and passing the word on) enables F3 to continue to grow and thrive, and it’s our continuing obligation to pass the gift on. How we pass the word can be purposeful OR by happy accident, as evidenced by the arrival of one of our FNF’s, GroupOn, this morning. Long story short, he was looking for the bootcamp that he had a GroupOn for, stumbled on our band of brothers, got a great workout and even better name, and now has access to a free of charge early morning outdoor workout AND access to some HIMs for the 2nd and 3rd F. All important since he literally just moved in from DC.
Just goes to show you that our actions speak – whereever we are and whenever we’re there! Well done today – The Boneyard didn’t succumb to the Sad Clown Killer, and it’s because of the accountability shown by a great group of men!
