Catch Me if You Can

Mosey to the track and partner up for Catch Me if You Can, only to find the track at South Charlotte Middle School was ripped up and is under renovation. Already an audible is called by YHC to run the length of the football field in lieu of laps around the track.

Partner 1 Runs towards the opposite goal line while Partner 2 does called exercise and races to catch Partner 1. Each round consisted of running the length of the football field 4 times for a total of 400 yards.

  • Round 1 5 Merkins and flapjack

Return to parking lot for Mary:

  • Flutter x 15
  • Rosalita x 20
  • Russian twists x 10
  • Finish strong with Merkins AYG

The Moleskin:

  • It was an auspicious start when we pulled in only to find a large construction vehicle parked in Spackler’s parking spot. YHC had not planned on World’s Strongest Man truck pull #Refusnik
  • YHC could not get the squat demonstration right in COP #QFail
  • The PAX was quite surprised to find that the track was being remodeled. Nothing like starting the project the week before school starts #PoorlyPlannedProject. This is apparently to the delight Purple Haze #NotAFanofYasso800
  • Welcome FNG Tawny, EH’d by Whitesnake, a Jaguar never looked so good in the 80’s
  • Thank you Slimfast for taking us out
  • Solid work by the PAX today, YHC wanted to keep the PAX moving today and they kept bringing it.Thanks for the opportunity to lead, it is always an honor. Please sound off with any mumble chatter.

Me: They’re doing construction on the track! Little to no running in the gloom! Woohoo!

Q: OK, we’re gonna run the length of the field a few times! And do Merkins and stuff! Pair up!

Me: … (ah, crud) … Aye.

Great Q, Geraldo. Tawny was sufficiently sore yesterday. But I think he’ll be back. Mission accomplished.

P.S. Tclaps to Slim Fast for queuing up Coverdale and Co after the post. Tawny’s glad we didn’t make him crawl up on the earth mover to, uh, demonstrate his dancing skills.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
