Celebrating 18

AO: Academy

When: 2024-05-28

QIC: lumbergh

PAX (5): Devito, Jackalope, No-See-Um, Turbine


I had the Q and was sure post Memorial Day would be quiet. A few even admitted to extending their vacation, but I knew I had Jackalope who was calling all pax on my behalf. A few others were in the lot and ready including an unknown tour bus.


We warmed our ears to the music of Jackalope.

The Thang:

  • A mosey over to the ticket booth. I had a model but was a bit of a fill in the blank on exercises. As Turbine correctly mentioned I build in some runs just long enough to come up with the next ones.
  • As my oldest has just graduated and turns 18 tomorrow it was a beatdown dedicated to her. 18 reps of two exercises, repeat, and then either run track or run the steps (via the outside sidewalk loop) and run the track. It is certainly a beatdown that she will not care about when I tell her it was for her.
  • I also threw on her playlist of music she has discovered through me. Not too bad for a beatdown playlist outside of November Rain and maybe some other slower hits.
  • We did things like Mercans, Squats, Curls, Burpees, Flutters, LBCs, Shoulder Taps, and so much more.


Prayers for Turbine and an upcoming procedure that will sideline him for 4-5 weeks. Expect more rucks with Turbine soon. Prayers for Jackalope on his summer away and his family.  

Naked-Man Moleskin:

Always a pleasure to lead and also be chased up the Caffey Companionway by Turbine
