Other PAX: Ramses - F3 Greensboro

Quick warm-up of stretching while I explained the route. It did not venture far from my preblast, which was, run to the north end and try to make it to the Shell Island lollipop, then back to the AO by 0615. But turnaround, where ever you may be, at the 21 minute mark.

I think almost everyone pushed to make it all the way to Shell Island and back. I cannot fault them for hard work and not wanting to quit. However, it did mean we made it back by 0618.... I am sure I'll get my fine in the mail.

Anyhow, great fellowship, strong push from everyone, and a beautiful sunrise. A good way to start the day!

Warmup: seal claps, Moroccan nightclubs, windmills. copperhead squats The thang: Mosey to the big field. Deck of cards workout. hearts are merkins, diamonds are big boy sit-ups, clubs are sumo squats and spades are jump ups. Each PAX has a few cards we do the exercise the number on the card with 2’s doubling the next card’s reps, 3’s 4 count crab crawls, jacks 10 jack knives, kings make you the Q for whatever you want, aces are 10 of whatever suit the ace is followed by 2 burpees. There were no queens present at this workout. I had to call the exercise and cadence at first, but this is a highly intelligent AO so they were soon proceeding with minimal help from the Q. With intelligence and age often comes rebelliousness so the pace wasn’t always at the aerobic speed the Q invisioned, but everyone was sweaty and grass covered partly because Sunrise got a king card and led us in Superman bananas, the ideal wet grass exercise. ????

1st Event- Synchronized pickle pumpers, just kidding. Sandbag Team Toss

Each pax took turns throwing a sandbag until they completed a lap around the empty pond. Steak and the Grandpas took the win. *The Blondes were seen drinking an unmarked bottle of purple fluid after the loss.

2nd Event - Sandbag Mule Relay

We moseyed to the tennis courts where each Pax took turns carrying 2 sixty-pound sandbags around the tennis courts.
The other Pax cheered and did Burpees while waiting.

This one was a gasser and I'm sure 10 Count would have been proud. The Blondes took home the win to tie things up. The purple hydration seemed to be working for the Blondes as they started doing overhead presses with 60-pound sandbags in each hand to celebrate.

3rd Event - Diamond Merkin Race

We moseyed to the baseball field where each Pax ran around the bases with a sandbag. At each base, they did ascending merkins of 5,10,15, and 20. The other Pax performed prisoner squats while waiting.

The Blondes wrapped up the comeback victory by winning the event. Steak and the Grandpas filed a protest but I doubt it will go anywhere. The bottle of purple fluid was never found.

COT

We all made our way to the OGAO where we celebrated another birthday with Busted Grill as he showed off his six-pack and took Polaroids of all 21 Pax. Prayers to Steak Knives' friend battling cancer. Life is precious, we should appreciate every day we have.

Steak Knives - I really feel the cotton shirt slowed you down today Milton - Let's get that coffee soon, please reach out soon Whirligig - You were on fire today Raygo - I can't imagine you with a full head of blonde hair Tiny Dancer - Events like this are great for your business, you're welcome! Leroy Brown - Did you really have surgery a few months ago? Strong work today! Cane Pole - I guess we'll never know if you won. I hope the Turkish back rub was worth it.

That wraps it up. Thanks for the inspiration you all provide every week. And remember, it's not cheating if you don't get caught.
