4 x 4 x 48 – Virtual CSAUP (April 3 -5)

Upset over your Spartan, Marathon, or any other event that was recently canceled?  Well we have just the thing for you.  With more virtual weinkes being shared then when Gov. McGreevey was in office, we figured it was time to share something bigger and more grotesque –  a virtual CSAUP.

Starting on April 3rd anytime  after 12:00 am,  a group of “a$$hats” or as Hooch’s M refers to the group  “infected a$$hats” will look to accomplish running 4 miles, every 4 hours, for next 48 hrs.   Note: Once you start, you have to keep to cadence of 4miles x 4 hrs for 48 hrs.  That equals 12 segments or 48 miles in 2 days.   The virtual CSAUP will end by April 5th at 11:59 pm.

We will provide opportunity to register and  record each segment via the F3waxhaw.life here shortly.  Get ready and look forward to a couple other knuckleheads looking to  join us and commiserate while earning a coveted special edition CSAUP Badge.  If you use Strava make sure to track each of the runs and tag with “4 x 4 x 48 Virtual CSAUP – X / 12 Segment”

Stay tuned for more details!

  • Moby – Flower: Every time song says “bring Sally up” you stand, every time it says “bring Sally down” you squat.

  • Smithers happy that YHC was able to find puddles to have us to lay in
  • Recalc made no arrest for form today, quiet morning for the authority
  • Gaylord reminded group if need to get tested to do drive up vs. entering into hospital – may have given directions to Smithers after “supposedly” coughing due to swallowing a bug
  • Mad Dog coffee intake and sequential release of gases ensured safe distance for entirety of workout
  •  Glider offered to refi my weinke to ensure it gets processed and accepted for next submission

#BAH BAH Waxhaw do you have any new hills?

18 Pax ventured out to visit a new hill #BAH (Big Ass Hill) that is just over by the Post Office on Waxhaw Pkwy Rd.  Quickly review DCCS and ready to roll towards KJH when Bottlecap makes point to emphasize S for Safety and need for pax to continue to wear appropriate attire for safety especially at the Floater.  Great point but takes an extra 0:47 seconds to complete putting the start time at 5:15:47.

Off we go for warm up mosey down KJH and circle up at Veterinarian parking lot.

Quick Warmup:

  • SSH
  • Imperial Walker
  • Jimmy Dugans (Nails confirms that even Nails can properly do Jim Dugans)
  • Merkins
  • Calf Stretch

Plan was to have 4 groups and do leap frog up the sidewalk, but turned into 2 groups playing leap frog.  Group 1 do Carolina Dry Docks at light, Group 2 run to next light and begin Dry Docks.  Once full group at light keep leap frogging until we get to crosswalk by Post Office.  Properly cross road together and mosey on down to start of neighborhood.

With the 2 groups still in tact, Group 1 do  “Nickles & Dimes”  at the bottom while Group 2 runs to given point up the hill.  Once group returns flapjack.

  • Round 1: 5x Merkins/10xBobby Hurley – Run to Waxhaw Flyers Building
  • Round 2: 5x Squats / 10 x Big Boi Situps – Run to Dollar Tree, Family Dollar Dollar General
  • Round 3: 5 x Carolina Dry Docks / 10 x Speed Skaters – Run to NTB

Collect the 6 and cross over Rt 16 back to sidewalk.  Resume with leap frog with burpees back to launch point.  Along the way lots of chatter from the Lord Kelvins, Jacques and Pierre Curies ( History of Timekeeping) regarding time management.  Certain point there seemed to be a coup as some began to just mosey back without stopping for burpees.  Not today, make push towards the front to take back the reigns and restore order.  Leap frog back with burpees included.  Getting closer to COT and Shake’s mumblechatter is increasing and looking to report Toby to Corporate, but like you once wrote in a song:

Can you teach me ’bout tomorrow
And all the pain and sorrow running free
‘Cause tomorrow’s just another day
And I don’t believe in time….

Finally, we cross back over Rt 16 and are back at COT at 6:15:47.  ( Just like when you look at a scale and it says 215.9, you mark the weight as 215).  We finished at 6:15.

Announcements:

  • Christ Closet Folding Party tonight 7:00 – 9:00
  • Restate Bottlecap’s message from this morning – please keep safety in mind especially at sites with higher traffic.  Be purposeful in choosing correct gear.

Moleskin:

  • Learned more about Gerber and his knowledge of Dollar Stores and passion for Dollar Tree where his children are all allowed 2 items every visit (particularly fond of the balloons).  Would have thought living in Briarcrest that they would be more uppity and a $5 Below Family
  • Running by Deflated one point heard some clinking noises coming from the knee – either needs to oil the knee brace or has some real junk going on in there – MRI stat!
  • 0-69 enjoyed having join us along the hill to provide the music inspiration and caught a glimpse of the jog few times
  • Mad Dog looked into the Floater bylaws and found that statute 37.4.3.b states that if beyond KJH when train rolls by burpee compliance is discretionary.  Due to distance we need not complete at time, but once we re-entered boundaries of burpee train rules, we intended to make up for it with return mosey.
  • Based on the few audibles provided you can see that the weinke was properly reviewed by Deadwood’s Weinke Inspection Services.

5 Pax at LRC for Launch of New App Feature – Name Change Request Form

5 almost 6 Pax for LRC for a 6 mile stroll across the standard loop led by Renzo.  As Pax were getting ready to start, we see Mad Dog rolling out put the EH on to join the LRC crew, but he decides to bypass and head to Dromedary.  Next time.

Hooch got his prerun in prior to launch time of ~4 miles and completed total of 10 by end of morning.

Smithers continues to push pace and hit sub 8:30 pace for today, Easy Button took the lead and pushed the pace all day and was crowned Standard Loop All Time Leader by Strava when all said and done.  Deflated continued to hobble along and do further damage rehab to his aching knee.  All in all good group and pace continues to improve.

We Have a New Champ!

The 2020 Weight Loss Competition has ended and we have a new champ – with a 13.7% weight loss and 34.8 lbs since the start, we congratulate….. Smithers!  Now, lets look at the field and see how the rest of the field panned out.

Top 3 Individuals who are in the money:

  • Smithers – down 34.8 lbs (13.7%) Wins the prize money and title of Biggest Loser of Waxhaw.
  • Foundation – down 26.2 lbs (10.7%), Took a run at the crown, but fell few lbs. short.
  • Nails – down 25.9 lbs (10.4%), with plant based diet and puffy jacket worn while training in Haiti finished in Top 3 and won some extra gas money.

Just short of the money:

  • Doughboy – down 25.4 lbs (8.9%) Came out the gate hotter then an Ice9 Q with 1,000 calorie/day diet.  Ran into a little traffic bourbon towards end but still down an impressive 25 lbs.
  • Deflated – down 18.4 lbs (8.9%) one of the lighter competitors to start the competition still managed to shed almost 20 lbs of clothing before end of March, which may be a greater accomplishment then losing the actual weight.
  • Banjo – down 20 lbs (8.3%), made it through Dryuary, but couldnt keep the keto burn going like a couch in WV
  • Deadwood – down 17.4 lbs* (8.1%) started off pre Floater down only 10 lbs, but by end finished down 17.4 lbs.  Weight bounced up and down more then the stock market of late
  • Blades of Glory – down 22.2 lbs (8.0%) as of last weigh in, and is currently on Mission in Guatemala.  Could have been a true contender for crown, but still hell of a job hitting -20 lbs in competition
  • Deep Dish – down 13.0 lbs (6.2%),even while on IR consistent poster of scale pics and consistent weight loss.  Could have finished in money if it were not for naggin injuries

Rest of Field

  • Boitano – down 14.2lbs (6.2%), Looked to have taken to walking the course vs. using the golf cart at Bushwood, unfortunately was not able to avoid beer cart and cash in on this competition
  • Zin – down 10.8 lbs (5.0%), weight loss competition did not drag on long  enough to have his big reveal of new abs recently found under the vest.
  • Rudy – down 11.0 lbs (4.7%), Coach finally put Rudy in at the 4th Qtr, but just a little too late to cash in this go round.
  • Damascus – down 8.4 lbs (3.5%), after too many questions asked on how to access the app, reverted to only 2 recorded weights.  Will be sure to right up full SOP for next years event for you.
  • Recalculating – down 7.0 lbs (3.4%), Ice bath and cryotherapy looked to have put a freeze on his weight loss for 2nd half of competition
  • Wedding Singer – down 7.8 lbs (3.4%), Puff, Puff, Pass on weight loss during final 3 weeks.  Life is good in Denver
  • Jingles – down 7.6 lbs (2.9%), not only a lurker on GroupMe but a lurker on competition with no weigh ins since initial weight.  Look forward to him recommencing workouts with pax soon.
  • On Time down 4.6 lbs (1.9%) – little bit of baby blues, but look to having you out soon again
  • Fuse Box – down 4.2 lbs (1.7%), the Don of Briarcrest expense report must have been maxed out as never given shot to take shot at crown due to travel
  • Brutus – down 2 lbs (0.9%), may have recently began new streak of attending workouts, but was unable to log any additional weights in app.  Lets see if he will last longer then Brady Hoke’s coaching career at U of Michigan

Team Standings:

  1. Team Chocolate Cookie (Deadwood/Foundation/Smithers) – 32.6%  – Winners!!!
  2. Team Ice Capades (Deflated/Blades Glory/Boitano) – 23.1%
  3. Team Hunger Games(Recalc/Doughboy/Banjo) – 20.6%

YHC completed team assignments:

  • Dallas Renegades: Deflated, Rudy, Hooch
  • Houston Roughnecks: Shake & Bake, Rockwell, Rubbermaid

Compelling game with lots of terrible throws great defense, ended with 1-0 score with a catch in the end zone as time expired. Dallas Renegades win!

*Official petition has been entered by Shake in regards to inflation of frisbee and game remains under league review

Moleskin:

  • Great work by the group of 7 to run few miles this morning, believe everyone got north of 5 miles
  • Rudy continues to live up to his name and gut out performance and not one I want to go against on a short sprint, good job
  • Rockwell pushing the pace all day and appears ready for upcoming 10K
  • Shake continues to ensure excellent form and digs deep to compete on each rep/round.  Every lap appeared to be giving just a little bit extra on the run
  • Rubbermaid man can just run for days on end, also YHC reviewed the tape and that Frisbee was uncatchable as it hit you in the hands/chest
  • Deflated is the Shane Falco (Replacements) of Ultimate Frisbee, you can see the former pedigree in him but just age/injuries caught up to him but provides few glimpses into what he used to be as an athlete
  • Hooch appreciate the guest appearance at your AO today, YHC still upset that I did not receive proper prehype marketing and had to settle for stock gif

Announcements:

  • Father/Daughter Dance on March 6th – sign up: http://markthismoment.com/
  • Keep prayers going for all that were mentioned in COT and unmentioned by pax
  • Weight loss competition ends next week.  Scale will be out all week to get final weigh ins.

LRC 3 for 6

Today we had 3 pax for 6 miles (4 laps) around the Standard Loop.  Pace continues to increase for all Pax.

LRC – 3 Couples and the 7th Wheel (Smithers)

You own a zebra, I own a goat, what the hell does that have to do with running?

It was a Couples Retreat today at LRC with 3 power couples (Deadwood/Zin, Hooch/Longhorn, Deflated/Foundation) and Smithers making for a total of 7 pax.  Today the route was to run the standard loop (1.5 miles) in reverse.  With majority of Pax at the starting point we take off and begin running.  Each couple settles in for a  stroll through Lawson neighborhood.  Along the way we run into our final couple Hooch/Longhorn and they join in for a portion before departing the island and heading back to the other side of Lawson.  Around the 1/2 way mark Zin/Deadwood breakout for a private session of Guess your disease or translate your tribal tattoo and leave before COT.  After mile 6 Deflated  tells YHC to take the French out of my mouth and don’t tell him what to do.  So he decided to end at 6 miles.  Smithers finished with PR for distance.
