PAX (9): Chipper, Deuce (Jay Mooney), Durty Nelly, Hail Mary, Paparazzi (Sri), Snake, Snowman, Spit Valve, Stroller


Somehow I missed my annual trip to the Grindstone last year. Been thinking about how I needed to get back, and a glance at the Q sheet a few weeks ago revealed an open slot for today. Grabbed it and started to brainstorm something fun to challenge the HIM of F3 Cumming. About a week ago, inspiration finally hit with a routine provided by GoRuck. Slight chill at the AO this morning, where it looked like we would be about 5 strong before a couple PAX came in hot and Chipper joined from his pre-pre run. On a personal note, it was great to see Snake who I don't believe I had seen since before Covid.


Run somewhere and circle up with high knees. Snowman feared the circle burp, but we skipped it as burpees were already in the plan.
  • 10x weedpickers
  • 10x Imperial Walkers
  • 25x Moroccan Nightclubs
  • 10x Mercans
Back to the flag to pick up our cinders. Walk them to the football field, grab a coupon if you missed the cinder note.

The Thang:

Part 1: Cinder Kalsu 100 thrusters for time. EMOM, complete 5 burpees. PAX were given suggestions for modification as this is a burner. At 14 minutes, Q called it on this routine. Jog to midfield and back, then to opposite end and back. Part 2: BLIMPS Q thought he was being nice by swapping out the Burpees for Bonnie Blairs, but didn't modify the lunges...oops. Begin by bear crawling 10 yards, then 2 each Bonnies-Lunges-Imperial Walkers-Mercans-Plank Jacks-Squats Bear crawl 10 yards, then 4 each. Reach midfield with 10 reps of each exercise. Go back down the ladder, but run between yard lines and sub Big Boi Situps for Bonnie Blairs. The situps were a great chance to see the stars, which are much more visible in Forsyth County than in Alpharetta. Not much time left, grab your coupon and go back to the flag. A round of American Hammers, a round of Dying Cockroach. That's it.


  • Schneider and family on the passing of his mom
  • 12/9 Santa Ruck, stay tuned for details

Naked-Man Moleskin:

It was great to meet some of the newest PAX and show them how we do things in Roswell/Johns Creek. Love the continued growth in Forsyth County- keep it up fellas!
