The unexpected site this morning. After my co-Q (Chase) and I arrived early to set up our adventures, we waited on the Basketball courts. But it was just meant to be a father and son duo this A.M.

We did have a siting of @Space Cowboy as he was finishing up a run.

We went through with completing the planned workout, with a little extra play thrown in. Saving the details as this one will be utilized again…

8 fine young(ish) men met at LLP for an OGAO beatdown. Started with some warmarama 25 IC Seal Claps, 15 IC Imperial Walkers, 49 Merkins (thanks @specialK for that brilliant concept ????)

We then Lt Dan walked to the 10S court lot - 1 squat 4 lungewalks, 2 squats 8 lungewalks ..::. to 10. We we were heckled by a large mob of shady characters wearing backpacks in all black, so we Bear Crawled the field to lay claim to the drainage pond. There we partnered up, each chose a fine coupon to workout with for our partner DORA BOMBS- 50 Burpees, 100 Overhead Presses, 150 Merkins, 200 Bonnie Blairs, 250 squats. The timer rifle ran with coupon around the pond.

Then we moseyed to the lot at the top of the hill and did a quick round of 11’s with dips and merkins. We then ran the long way home but not before our NanTan showed that punk mob who was boss and stole their flags and brought them to the OGAO! Fuel Depot is like the RH stepchild that has outgrown his britches and taken over the house and maybe gotten a little ‘lippy’ with the parentals and well Gump had to put them in their place by stealing their flags to show them what true leadership looks like ????.
