21 Days till Christmas with a visit from little merkin boy

AO: Starting Line

When: 12/04/2021

QIC: Script Kiddie

PAX (5): Script Kiddie, Sirmixalot, Suarez, who, Fig Newton(FNG)


The plan was to do a pre-ruck starting at 6AM to see if we could make it to Dawson High school and back and have time for a BD, we got there at 6AM and ready to go, Sir Mixalot followed with his 2.0 and with a slack message from Murdock stating he was in a fender bender, thankfully no one was hurt it was set for a 3 PAX Pre-ruck so off we went.  We easily made it to the high school with plenty of time to take a lap around the track and that set in motion ideas for Sir Mixalot’s next ruck BD, most likely occurring next Saturday. looking forward to it.  The chatter among the PAX was good and it is always great to see some new young guns be added to the AO, great having
Once we got back and Who rolled in it was time to mosey, we ended up at the farmers market area, to start the events of the morning


Time hit 7 and the mosey was begun, headed up the steps then took a left to get to the farmers market area

Disclaimer was given and the warm up was begun

15 SSH
15 Hillbillies
15 Weed pickers
15 Windmills
15 Moroccan night clubs

Sir Mixlots 2.0 was trying to decipher the crazy F3 verbiage but did a great job keeping up.

After the warmup it was time to mosey to Thang 1

The Thang:

With Christmas being only 21 days away it was time to travel down Super route 21, the shortcut addition,
7 lamp posts so at each light post we did the following
3 merkins, 3 squats, 3 big boy setups
Mosey to next light post
6 merkins, 6 squats,  big boy setups
Mosey to next light post
9 merkins, 9 squats, 9 big boy setups
Mosey to next light post
Repeat with the count going to 12 then 15, 18, and 21
Total of 84 each
And with and super route 21 it had to end with 10 burpees in front of the Christmas tree, to jump up and down in celebration of the Christmas tree being lite this evening.
On to Thang2

The mound was feeling a bit neglected so it was time to revisit, one of my favorite locations at the AO
Start with 10 shoulder tap merkins(Alpha count)
Go to top of the mound pay the toll and with inflation being what it is it was time to step it up, sooo
3 BDE burpees
on the other side it was time to introduce the PAX to the Rocking horse (Start with a big boy situp, then do a leg lift high in the air, like when you were young and you got on a rocking horse and rock back and forth as far as you can)
Back to the top and another toll of 3 BDE burpees
Other side 9 shoulder tap Merkins
Toll of 3 BDE burpees
Down the hill 2 Rocking horses
Repeat till 11s were done
55 Shoulder tap merkins and 55 Rocking horses
33 BDE burpees
with an extra 3 BDE burpee tolls paid by who? and SK

Time for something festive so it was time for little merkin boy
Play Little Drummer boy by Bing Crosby.Hold plank and do 1 merkin every time you hear “Pa rum pum pum pum”.  The song is 3 minutes of plank and 21 merkins.
At this point we had time for a bit O Mary

Sir Mixalot called WW2 sit-ups
Suarez called windshield wipers
And at that point it was time to call time, it was 8AM

Well done to the PAX that made it out, and we missed Lightwieght and his crew, Murdock and the other PAX that could not make it out to the gloom this morning

So with this month we are doing a merkin madness challenge with 100 merkins per day, for the month of December and with the count of 160 merkins for the morning, we are set for the day.


Count and nameorama
FNG named, welcome Fig Newton Sir Mixalot’s 2.0

Who?’s 2.0 and his wife’s family

Acceleration Point
Talked about the Oaks of Louisiana and how they survived hurricane Katrina and they did it by having roots that go deep and intertwine with the other trees around it and that is a representation of how we should not only try to grow and learn but also reach out to the people/men around us to help us withstand any storm that we may face and encouraged the PAX to reach out if/when they face something and shield lock is a great way to do that and always know that I and other men of f3 are here to help.

Prayer/Ball of man

On to Coffeeteria

Naked-Man Moleskin:

We had time to take the pic then Who?  head out for breakfast with the M, great call!!

The rest of the PAX hung out and checked out the exercise equipment and found some great ideas for future BDs with Suarez planning for his next Q, that should be a great one!

The PAX did a great job and I always enjoy leading and/or being a part of the Saturday morning BDs,  this men know how to encourage/help me accelerate and become better/stronger in all areas, and with that, it was time to head out to face the day.

Another BD in the history books,
