“That’s a BAD IDEA fellas”

“That’s a BAD IDEA fellas”

10 PAX nearly got mauled by a pack of rabid German Shepherds at #TheFloater.  Or at least that is what flashed before the eyes of one very surprised gentleman on the mean streets of downtown Waxhaw.

YHC rolled into the parking lot with one eye open after staying up late and nodding off watching the Red Sox win yet another crazy game.  #5MoreWins.  Following the Red Sox motto, my intent was to #DoDamage.


  • Mosey to the other side of the tracks to open parking lot near Waxhaw Women’s Club (get your mind out of the gutter . . . not that type)
  • Stuttering disclaimer given
  • SSH x 20
  • Imperial Squawkers x 10
  • Merkins x 10
  • MC x 15
  • Plank Jacks x 20
  • One-legged knee dips x 12 (most PAX quit at 10 . . . #NoHalt)


  • Start the mosey to Mount Thin Mint (aka “Bad Idea”)
  • As we turn the corner, a gentleman was walking 3 BIG German Shepherds on the sidewalk
  • He just kept saying “That’s a bad idea fellas!”
  • We each stopped to pet the adorable creatures quickly hopped off the sidewalk and ran by him on the street
  • Continue to the school while discussing if that dog walker was a prophet and he really meant WHAT WE ARE ABOUT TO DO is a bad idea
    • Wall-sit with air presses x 30
    • Supines x 20
    • Railing squats x 20
    • Supines x 20
  • Continue to Mount Thin Mint for some partner work
    • 200 Merkins and 300 Squats
    • P1 runs up hill to cemetery and considers taking a dirt nap returns to flapjack until total reps complete
  • Mosey to back of school for more partner work
    • P1 does side steps ups on Jersey Barrier blocks
    • P2 does railing crawl up ramp + 10 supines and returns to Flapjack
    • 4 reps each
  • Mosey back to start with some plank work and an AYG run up to the smell of Bacon bridge


  • Smaller crowd with less mumblechatter for sure
  • Most of the talk centered around the dogs and the Bad Idea premonition
  • Great to see Rudy and EHarmony back out after some time away
  • Nice work by Dana throughout, especially the last AYG run up the hill . . . He commented that I gave him a double take when I saw him chase me down . . . #SprintingForBacon
  • Well done by Foundation and Dancing Bear setting the pace all day
  • Doughboy continues to say he is a Clydesdale but he’s shedding his mane quickly . . . Would have been fun to get Bread Bowl’s commentary on the dogs
  • Southern Belle was in a full stretch on the railing crawl . . . #DidIHearAGoodfellaJoke
  • Posse and Xerox were sneaky fast on the hill today


  • THIS SUNDAY at 10:30am:  Forest Hill is holding an outdoor service at Cane Creek Park.  David Chadwick will be preaching live (see Dana for more details)
