19 pax assembled under the lights of Stonecrest Motor Speedway despite flashes of lightning and thunder off in the distance. At the drop of the green flag, the pax hit the pavement with speed that would make Cole Trickle blush.

Mosey around lot beside Target to hill. Partner up, size matters.

LBC x 30 OYO
Mosey to speed bumps
Alternate lunge walk, bear crawl between speed bumps. At each bump partner derkins/OH press alternate x 15 (crowd favorite, shamelessly poached from a previous Muthaship visit)
*Note- YHC went off-weinke and called an Omaha on the “between bump exercises” the bear crawl/lunge walk combo was intended to be partner drags. This audible was not a deliberate modification, but rather O2 deprivation and forgetting the next play #usetheweinke. If the pax feels shorted, feel free to double underhook a coworker and drag them around the office a few laps.
Mosey to Murderhorn (divide hill by 4)
Plank at top. RAF, LLB, LAF, RLB, 6 inches
Backwards run from stop sign at bottom to light post 1, L karaoke to light post 2, R karaoke to light post 3, regular run to top.
Repeato with regular run up full hill
Flutter x 20 until all pax reach top
Mosey to back of movie theater. Victory lap Jailbreak around theater. PH edged out RT to take the checkered flag.
Rosalita x 20
Following the COP heading to the hill, the pax had to play frogger crossing the HT parking lot to avoid the A-team van coming in hot. (To our in-house counsel: the disclaimer was given, but did not reflect any warnings about Mr. T.)
Mumblechatter was surprisingly minimal this morning. Not sure if it was the hills or the absence of @Radar and @Spackler?
Crabcake showed some serious agility breezing up Murderhorn during the backward run/karaoke series. #wheelhouse.
Molasses, Rock Thrill, Haze, and Brisket had their #smokeboots on for the forward facing ascent of the Horn.
About the time we crossed Elm Ln, YHC really began to regret agreeing to meet Haze for the prerun, particularly before taking the Q. ‘Twas a noble strategy to weaken the Q, especially with a practice run up Murderhorn.
Strong work by Philmont and Grimes leading up to the big trip out west.
Purple Haze brought his A game today- prerun plus leading the pack nearly all morning. At #F3FastTwitch earlier this week YHC told Haze he looked like “an old man in a rocking chair on the porch” while stretching the calves before the run. That “old man” smoked everybody today.
Great seeing some new faces in the gloom this morning. Thanks for beating the fartsack and braving the “lightning and thunder” for some great camaraderie in the humidity that is summer in the south.
It was a pleasure leading such a fine group of gents.
