Time to Make the Donuts

Time to Make the Donuts

Rumor has it that someone planted a shovel flag or VSF in the Episcopal church parking lot across Independence Park?  Either way, after 7 or 8 pax moseyed over to the launch lot from the aforementioned Episcopal church – 21 total Monday morning donut-makers set out for a DMZ-goes-to- Metro downpainment at the friendly confines of Ranger/Indy.

Here’s The Thang (or something like it) & Ye Olde Moleskine:

Jog to the baseball field next to ETES for a brief COP.  At this point, Bushwood said something to the effect that no one from Ranger had ever stepped foot on the baseball field.  #blazingatrail. He actually might have said no one at Ranger had ever stepped on a blade of grass?

We did 6-count burpees, Squats and a few IW’s IC to which Dock sounded the obligatory “wheelhouse” comment

Then off to the CPCC parking deck (forgot the nickname?) for some catch-me-if-you-can partner work — 10 H-R merkins while partner backward runs; 5 times each.

Apparently we stopped one level short of the roof according to Mutiny.  #cobains.

We did Dancing Chilcutts IC, everyone except Kirk, that is.  He apparently does nothing on his elbows…..

We then ran down the stairs, did a brief squat hold with some overhead press IC.

Next we ran over to Indy Park, through some more grass #ohthehumanity for some wall work

One-legged squats x 13 IC L & R

2 sets of 13 derkins OYO and 2 sets of 13 incline merkins OYO

Jog over to the kitty litter for some more partner work: P1 bear crawl down & lunge walk back while P2 does jump squats. Flapjack. 3x each

P1 crab walk down & backwards lunge walk back while P2 does Freddie Mercury. Flapjack. 3x each.

Jog over to ETES for some people’s chair with a few variations.  During the jog, Rock said something to the effect that this old school bootcamp stuff is really throwing guys for a loop…. #missionaccomplished

We then ran back to the launch lot for 6 MoM with flutters, Makthar N’Djaiye’s, protractor and something else I can’t remember.


Final thoughts:

We did the DMZ field trip to Metro (Ranger/Indy) so that our brother Bout Time could join us.  His son Jennings is at Hemby (Presby) Childrens Hospital for his 2nd round of chemotherapy to knockout this a$$hole named leukemia.  DMZ Site Q Aquafresh gave YHC his blessing to audible and launch from Independence Park so DMZ-regular Bout Time could join us.

The donut reference is due to the fact that Jennings woke up this morning when his dad was heading out, and Bout Time told him he was going out to get him a donut and would be back in a little while.  And Bout Time did, of course, run to get his sweet boy a donut after the workout.

For those reading this who are also inclined to pray, or perhaps even if you aren’t normally inclined to pray – I’ll leave you with this and challenge you to do exactly as the writer of Hebrews states on behalf of Bout Time, M. Bout Time and their entire family, most especially their little boy Jennings:

So then, since we have a great High Priest who has entered heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to what we believe. This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin. So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.”

Great to get out. Thanks for making the trip….and for all the prayers, love, and support. And thanks especially to Hops for a low running workout so I had enough left in the tank to get to the Donut shop. The way he went through those two glazed…would have been bad news to show up empty handed.
