Hightower is having a baby very soon, good for him to still be posting into his 3rd trimester. No, it’s his M that’s having the baby. Congratulations! And we’ll see you in a few months.
Potentially one of the best AO’s on Rea Rd on Thursday’s at 530AM, it’s always a pleasure to lead or post here. No sandbaggin’ today, everyone was pushin’ hard to get back up that (only .25) hill. Thanks to Marge & Queen for the opportunity.

PAX did an excellent job sticking together, despite the copious amount of backfiring from the Q due to a chicken burrito last night. Also, when did Rea Rd become an obstacle course? There must have been 6 or 7 hazards called out by the PAX in less than 1 block. Mailbox, shrubs, bus stop sign, narrow walk, firehydrant, another mail box…..
Memorial Day Convergence
Thanks to Marge & Queen for the opportunity to lead one of my favorite workouts. I’ll see ya’ll back on Flag Day.
4 braved the freezing temperatures for this weeks edition of Peak 51. As YHC left his warm apartment, he noticed the office fountain was frozen. It’s gonna be a good day.
Here’s what you missed:
Run around the parking lot
Run to the parking lot behind the school and square up for (in cadence):
It’s cold and we need to get moving so we do BLIMPS across the parking lot
When done with this lets do some People’s Chair while each one of us does 5 burpees one at a time
Run around the the front of the church for:
10 Bulgarian Squats (each leg)
20 Sit ups
From here it’s basically a ring run.
Head across the street for a round of:
20 Money makers/drop it like it’s hot
Head back to the AO running backwards (bernie sanders) up the hill.
In the parking a little more time to kill with Mary so:
Wow, YHC almost cried when he got back in his car. 2+ sets of gloves were necessary for this workout. Every time it seemed your hands would warm up, we’d drop to the ground or grab some cold metal and get cold all over again. Thanks for the take out, Lois. It was a good reminder to be grateful for even these coldest of days. Thanks Sensei for the opportunity to freeze, er…lead.
9 Strong&Fast showed up for the midweek edition of Area 51’s best and toughest workout on Hwy 51. Here’s what they did:
Quick lap around the parking lot, circle up
Head down to the track for partner BLIMPS

Switch to lunges going down the track while your partner runs, flapjack
Switch to reverse lunges while your partner runs, jog it in together
Pit stop area at the end of track which included: LBC’s, dollies, flutter kicks, the Protractor
Up to the parking lot for 5 burpees….that’s it!
Huggy Bear has gotten a lot faster since the last time I saw him. We were running together, pushing the pace, then Purell blows past us like we’re standing still. Of course, he and his partner Cheese Curd (who is also fast) almost lapped the entire PAX. Whim was quite taken with the shooting star, another reminder of the amazing world created for us.
Celebration party for Dumpster Fire at a (the) bar in Pineville. See twitter for details.
Answers will be given to questions such as:
*Who will carry Councilman Fire’s football? My nomination is Spackler.
*Who’s good enough with photoshop to add DF’s 2.0 under his Resolute Desk?
and most importantly…
*Will Pineville be the recipient of several large federal grants for more Pull-up Bars?
I think there’s a Christmas party somewhere, sometime but no one mentioned it.
