With a looming cold snap headed our way, 17 men decided to enjoy the last 50+ degree morning for a while by coming to Hydra. Yesterday, in between Trump tweets of Sessions resigning and CNN reporters getting kicked out of the White House (that’s not a political statement by me…..just the facts), I let the pax know via TwitterFaceLinkedSnap that we would be off campus the whole time and to pack some running shoes.
Hannibal originally had been assigned Q today, but business travels took him to the Windy City. Sprockets and I both volunteered to take his spot. Rather than arm wrestling on it (Sprockets would win, by the way), we settled on Sprockets Qing the Mary and I would take care of the rest.
Here’s how it went:
We ran out of the OPE campus and started down Summerlin. Along the way, we paused at each street light for 10 CDD’s (maybe 7 lights?). At the intersection of Summerlin and Abbotswood, we did the following:
We ran down Brynwood toward the high rent district of Rea/Colony. While on Brynwood we stopped for 10 squats at each light post. We planked a little then continued on toward Stonecroft Park. Sprockets decided Turkish situps were the Mary du jour while we waited on the six on Stonecroft Park.
Continue our mosey to the medical building behind Colony Place. We scared a CMPD officer who was parked behind the building. He immediately drove away. To be fair, the first person he saw was Spackler…….wouldn’t you immediately drive away, too?!
While in that parking lot:
Mosey to the traffic circle at Colony Place. Grab some wall/chair/bench for:
My watch said 6:03 at this point, so……Mosey back to OPE. We had 4 minutes left at OPE so this morning’s version of Vanna White (i.e. Sprockets) took us through:
That’s a wrap!
A few items I want to note right off the bat for summary:
We logged about 2.7 miles and were only on OPE’s campus for about 5 minutes. Aside from the mileage, we also tackled 115 merkins and over two hundred core exercises! Not bad! Marge and Queen, thanks for letting me lead this morning. Men, it was and always will be an honor! Sprockets, thanks for having my back on Mary! Never done that particular type of Q share before, but it gave this old man a chance to catch his breath a few times!
Spackler, thanks for the take-out/prayer!
