YHC grabbed the Q the day before as the Q sheet was empty and calling a name. It would be a partner beatdown, one that would smoke our shoulders. 5:28a and still just YHC and a small spatter of others. But alas, a big group trickled in at the bell and 14 PAX set off into the gloom.


Mosey around campus doing backwards run, high knees and butt kickers. Circle up behind Harden Hall for a normal routine of SSH, Imperial, Windmill.

YHC instructed the PAX to be ready to pick a different partner for 3 upcoming THANGS.

The Thang:


Head across the street to the “field” adjacent to the corporate parking lot. Grab a partner for Rock Paper Scissors.  Games of 3, loser doing 5 burpees, winner doing 5 merkins. At least 5 rounds later and YHC was ready to move us along.


Head over to the long skinny parking lot for a not-so-typical Dora. 100 merkins, 200 squats and 300 LBC. However, the first 10 reps of merkins each time would be Bro-Kins.
Time running low, we cut it a little short to head back to campus for the last hooray.


Back on campus we stopped at the entrance from Shiloh behind Harden Hall. Grab a different partner for bear crawls across the entire campus. Partner 1 would run up the hill while partner 2 would bear crawl towards the top, switching when Partner 1 returns picking up where his partner left off.  The PAX really “liked” this one 🙂

Time running out, head back to the basketball court for yet another bear crawl around the perimeter of the court. 3 minutes of Mary followed all called out by NLB guys.


Love seeing newer guys like Moose and our FNG getting after it this morning. Speaking of, welcome FNG Lasso, a big soccer fan. Typical work horses Biebs and Stay Puft always setting the pace up front. Consistent warriors Training Wheels, PM and Yellowstone all killing it out there.

Prayers for guys in transition and for those about to enter transition. Prayers for family members.

Coffeeteria followed in Harden Hall. Lots of good conversation and laughter ensued. MillerTime was not there 🙁

Naked-Man Moleskin:

Always an honor to lead.
