Preamble:

This was my last day as Site Q, so I decided to get nostalgic. It’s been a lucky 13 months since we’ve made the magical mystery tour. Like raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens were for Fraulein Maria, the stations today consisted of my favorite things: running, upper body and abs.

Just kidding. I hate running. Why didn’t we just do muscle beach again?

The BD below set what I think is a high-water mark for distance at ~2.7miles. I can’t remember doing anything longer than that at the Gladiator. And if I’m wrong, take it up with the new Site Q.

Warm-O-Rama:

I can’t really remember what we did for warm up because I was mostly worried about whether we’d lost Macbeth after ditching him before the prerun. That’s our bad, man, but I promise all you missed was a massive hill.

Either way…that was station 1.

And Macbeth was found.

The Thang:

  • Station 2: Coupon K’noll 5 min
    • 20 Curls
    • Run halfway up the hill
    • 20 Skull Crusher
    • Run halfway up the hill
    • Repeat if time
  • Station 3: Holcomb’s Hideaway¬†~1 min
    • :30 on/:10 off. Burpees & American hammers
  • Station 4: Library Loop 5 min
    • Partner up. One partner runs while the other exercises. Switch, then go through the next exercise.
      • Mercans
      • Monkey Humpers
      • Gas Pumpers
      • Mercans
  • Station 5: Murph’s Muscle Beach Morning Call 5 min
    • x2
  • Station 6: S*** Sprints 5 min
    • I think we got to 8. I wanted to do 10 in honor of (spoiler alert) Mav hitting Mach 10 at the beginning of his latest documentary. But we ran out of time.

COT:

  • Zohan’s safe travels
  • Blood Drive
  • Peachtree Road Race coming up (not announced, but check Slack if you’re running and want friends)
  • Aug 6 Convergence
  • Site Q handover. See below.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

It’s been a full year, and I’m really excited for the guy taking over as Site Q at the Gladiator. But, I write funny better than I do sappy. So, below is a summary of my feelings. Written in limerick form.

Back in the Spring, ’21
Our Site-Q at the end of his run.
He pulled me aside,
Said it’s been a great ride,
Just like that, Tebow handed off the fun.
Now I’m at the end of my tenure
As site Q for the Gladiator
Who will take the reigns
Leading PAX through the pains
Pushing and pulling to make us all winners
Our next leader certainly excites.
He’s been here a time earning stripes.
But before the announcement
And the flag transfer cements
I offer a bit of advice
First, show up and be present
No one likes a Site-Q that’s absent
It’d be quite absurd
To miss a whole third
Of your year…that makes leading..unpleasant
BackBLASTS and q SHEETS are important
Lest ZoHAN have to YAMMER, discordant
Hang back with the six
And stay right in the mix
And make sure no one stays dormant.
Our new site Q’s a real H.I.M.
On a prerun, seen spitting his phlegm
He walks the line between funny
And dad-jokey, punny
He’s a guy who’ll push, not condemn.
That’s right he’s a true F3 Leader
Hard worker, and at times a real screamer
kinda gave it away
but I have no more to say,
Gents, I hand this to Dreamer.
Scratch-off Out
