  • 17 made it out to the gloom this morning – what a bunch of suckers! Simple instruction, classic disclaimer provided.
  • Q made a promise of a “special treat” the night before in slack.
  • There for 4 pre runners (2 miles, down Eves and back).*
  • *The Pre Runners had an interesting discussion – is the Pre Run actually just a Regular Run and the Beat Down truly a Post Beat Down? The world may never know


Mosey to the 2nd parking lot

  • Weed Pickers
  • World’s Greatest Stretch (right leg, left leg)
  • Side Straddle Hops
  • Baby Arm Circles (forward & back)
  • Michael Phelps

The Thang:

Round #1:

  • Q instructed the PAX to each pick a parking space line.
  • Perform 2 merkins, bear crawl to the next line, do 2 merkins, and broad jump to the next line
  • PAX repeated until Q called for a “20 squat where you are” break
  • PAX kept going under Q called time.

Next, Mosey up the small hill to the baseball field concession area. Q revealed the “special treat” for the PAX – a set of 50lb (aka LEEROY) & a set of 30lbs (aka JENKINS)  dumbbells!!* What a fitting name – “Dumbbell”.

Round #2 – Instructions

  • Pick a partner. 1 partner is running (either down the hill OR to the front parking lot depending on which special treat you choose), the other partner exercising.
  • Leeroy (aka the 50lb) and Jenkins (aka the 30lb) must be in motion AT ALL TIMES. At any point in the round if they are sitting on the ground, a PAX must carry them to their desired location.
  • Jenkins goes to the bottom of the hill and back; Leeroy to the parking lot and back.
  • Modify as needed.

Round #2 – Exercises

  • Each PAX perform – 100 step ups; 100 dips
  • 50 Burpees, 100 American Hammers
  • When you’re not working, you’re running. Either running to the bottom of the hill or the front parking lot
  • PAX took turns choosing between Jenkins (hills with the 30lb) OR Leeroy (heavy on the flat)




*(13.6kg & 22.6kg for Raspberry Pie)



  • The Gladiator celebrates its 4 year anniversary on 6/21. Be there!
  • DC2 – leaving Friday for his trip / hike. Prayers for recovery and safe travels
