1 – 3.  Dips (feel the burn!)
4 – 6.  Alternating jump lunges (Sister Mary Catherine Gallagher)
5 – 9.  Incline Merkins
10.  By popular demand — jump lunges

12.  Squats
13.  Merkins
14.  Step Lunges
15.  Plank

Slow jog back to bus parking lot… time for Mary:
LBC x 15
Dolly x 15
The Flutter x 15

Back to the parking lot for BOM.

As always YHC enjoyed the fellowship and fitness with a fine group of men!  Kudos to Geraldo, Sensei and Good Hands who joined YHC for a 5k pre-run.  Geraldo and Sensei both sported ~8:40 average miles, which are approaching PR’s of long ago years!  We’re going to make a runner out of Good Hands before he knows it!!

Good to have Peeper out for his first Peak 51 post.  Great stuff… looking forward to having you out often!

Also Whitesnake made it, preventing YHC from having to go to his house and bang on his door!  I think Tawny talked some sense into him!!

Dumpster Fire is looking like a long-timer and continues to get stronger!  Great having you out there!

And I can’t leave out Hacker, Insomniac and Pele… always strong and steady!

Insomniac took us out in prayer… thanks, Brother!

1.  Continue to bring gently used athletic shoes on Thursdays.  This will go through Novermber 22.
2.  Continue to schedule time with PAX for Strangebrew’s 2nd F Challenge in October.
3.  Area 51 X-mas party is 12/6 at Sugar Creek Brewing Co.
4.  Joe Davis Run Jan 10, 2015.  Keep watch on website for details on sign-up and special F3 event.

LOL Whitesnake and I are on opposite schedules. He shows when I don’t and vice versa.

I fell Tuesday at the skunk and still recovering. I know, man-up DT.

Slim Fast is brining Whitesnake to my house… this has gone so wrong, so fast!

Seriously though I’m posting at Outland tomorrow. No merkins or burpees though for me, but I’ll do what I can do. #disclaimer

Great Q, Slim Fast. Always a pleasure, although my arms are still a quite bit rubbery.

DT: Indeed. We gotta get our schedules together. Hope you’re on the mend soon.

Any of you chaps coming to Base Camp on Monday bring your used shoes! #SoleRedemption. If you weren’t planning on coming, then change that.
