Leonid Meteor Shower Party at The Charge

Posted on behalf of Booty…

14 men emerged from the comforts of their internal combustion engine vehicles into a frosty 23 degree darkness with the hopes of a solid beatdown to, frankly, prevent freezing.  As it were, the frozen remnants of a comet creating the Leonid meteor shower were streaking overhead and plummeting through the atmosphere with color and aplomb that even Bill Nye would envy.  However, nary a gaze was upward as business was at hand.  To wit, BA had issued a Shoes vs Burpee Challenge to the pax for the final week of #SoleRedemption, and while the pax collectively reviewed the pairs of shoes on the ground, it was calculated using a ridiculous math equation that 25 burpees were to be paid.

And without further ado, we proceded to The Thang:

Mosey to upper loop lot

  • 5 burpees & 10 merkins OYO (these burpees did not count, btw)

Mosey to stadium steps

  • Up/Down each set of stairs, mosey around back and to the center of the turf pitch.


  • SSH x 20
  • Imperial Squat x 20
  • Merkin x 15
  • Mtn Climber x 15
  • Carolina Drydock x 10
  • Freddie Mercury x 20

Mosey to track and partner up for Backward Burpee Chase

  • Partner 1 run backwards, Partner 2 does 3 burpees and gives chase
  • Upon the catch, flapjack.  Complete 1 lap and wait for the Six.

Pain Stations with Steps:

  • Run the track, stopping every 100m for 10 merkins and 10 sumo jump squats.
  • After 3 pain stations, exit track, run to stadium steps and complete loop from warmup, return to track and wait for the Six.

Repeato Backward Burpee Chase for 2 laps.

Repeato Pain Stations with Steps.

Mosey to infield.

  • Circle up and all do SSH while intermittently doing 1 burpee in countarama fashion from the pax until we hit the 25 burpees owed. Ouch.

Mary until the end.


  • Backwards running is DD’s wheelhouse without question.  With his line of work it makes sense! #soccer
  • Sole Redemption delivery is this Saturday.  Bridges reports final count will be somewhere between 35-40 pairs of shoes for The Charge.  Solid work.
  • Convergence workouts for Thanksgiving, check the website.
  • Organized run in January created by an F3 brother, check out the pre-blast on F3Nation.com. http://f3nation.com/2014/10/17/2015-joe-davis-memorial-run-preblast-registration/
  • Thanks to Stone Cold for solid prayer to take us out.
