Century Mark

22 men assembled in the Gloom for a little core workout and got more of the same. BURPEES…

The Thang’

Jog into Carmel Middle School, stop along the way for Quite mirkens – at each speed bump.  The first set of 25 in cadence was abruptly interrupted by a car, second set was on the sidewalk so no one escaped the pain.

Naked Moleskin:

  • Swiper was on fire today, well at least he was happy (I think) about the Burpees!  I mean he reminded us that we still had 5 to go before we hit 100! Thanks for the reminder!
  • Hats off to Big Willie – He was my partner this morning and he held his own, he even helped co-lead the Jack Webb portion of our workout.  excellent work!
  • Good to see Blades of Glory back out in the gloom. Guess he only likes to workout in fall and winter. #noskatesneeded
  • Solid work by all this morning, I want to give a special shout out to Simba, because it appears this is the only way he can hear me!  #O2DEPERVATION
  • If you have one, two, three (or more) extra running shoes that you have sitting around the garage collecting dust and are in good shape, please reach out to Swiper. He will be leading an effort to collect said shoes for men at crisis assistance or urban ministry. This will be a Charlotte wide initiative so let’s start collecting those old running shoes. Also, if you have a contact at one of these places, please see Swiper. More on f3 Nation site as information becomes available.

I would pay to see a spelling bee between Runstopper and Chelms. Quiet enjoyible.

I thought RS was trying to get his own entry into the Lexico. Even Google doesn’t recognize “mirken” so I think RS wins.

Loved it this morning. For the record I was ready and rocking on the 10 count. Who knew you would call for a 20 count. #switcheroo #deception

By the way when I was leaving the house this morning I heard movement in the garage. As I investigated I found it was a raccoon. #WeGetUpEarly. Then off to DMZ and the surprises continued…no Q was listed on the schedule. Should have known it was Runstopper when he rolled in getting pumped for his Burpee Fest by listening to Limp Bizkit.
All in all a very solid start to the day.

A 20 count is not a 20 count when you count down by 2’s. Not sure I hit all the numbers though. Math has never been my thing.

Stealing this workout. I’m just reading it and I’m sweating.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
