  • Run across the soccer field, 10 Burpees, back to other side, 10 Incline Merkins on the cinder block
  • Karaoke across the field & back
  • High Knees to the soccer goal, bear crawl to the telephone pole, jog to end.  Rinse & repeat on way back
  • Partner up for Catch Me if You Can w/ cinder block – P1 runs across soccer field w/ cinder block, P2 completes 10 CDD & then runs to catch up with P1.  Flapjack for return trip across the fields.
  • Return the cinder blocks to their resting place

Finish it up with:

  • 20 Dips
  • 10 Decline Merkins
  • Plank with Maktar Jai x 10



  • Far Side made his return after couple months off to rehab back injury.  Great to have him back in the mix!  (He was pleasantly/unpleasantly surprised to see Uncle Leo’s gift of extra Cinder Blocks for the Area 51/The Matrix site).
  • Perfect weather for a Saturday morning workout as rain missed us and temps were comfortable
  • Kudos to Donkey Kong for posting after shadowing a Ruck event until 2 a.m.  Still had the energy to call Q out on his incorrect LBC form.  OT says that would explain his lack of “Abular Emphasis”.
  • Great group of men and always a pleasure to lead and be associated.


  • Sign-ups for the BRR are ongoing.  Let Baracus know if you are interested in joining a team.  A favorite CSAUP event for many of the PAX.
  • Mud Run training run to be held at Outland (Sun Valley High School in Indian Trail) next Saturday, 2/15.  See e-mail/Pre-blast for details.
