Yep, the Yellow Rose is definitely haunted

9 grown men went trick-or-treating at 0700 in 704-South. Well gents, da boyz are back in town. @Pro, back fresh off a solid 26.2 in chi-town. @HB, back from a solid 26.2 glasses of wine in NorCal. Great to see a solid core of the regulars out there, and the used-to-be regulars in their new absentia routine. Come on back when you’re ready guys.


Tha Thang:

Trick-or-treat COP:

@Pro emptied the treats out of his 2 year old daughter’s pumpkin trick or treat back and filled it with some terrible exercises. We circled up and passed the pumpkin with each guy pulling an exercise;

Burpees, merkins, diamonds, LBCs, wide arms, other horrible stuff on the DZ gravel lot.


Mosey to Brechin hill for some scary 7’s. Jump squats at the bottom, merkins up top, 4 burpees midway on both the up and down trip. Ding-dong-ditch every house on the way down.

@HB took the crew on an indian-mosey across 51 to the neighborhood behind Reafield apartments. We passed a FiA group along Baybrook – looking strong, ladies.

Clockwise lap around Woodleigh Oaks (0.8mi), stopping at each side street (8 total, think “legs of the spider”) for 10 merkins. Indian-mosey to the back side of the Yellow Rose (R.I.P.) for a flyby. The place has been closed a month and looks like it’s been abandoned for years. Thanks @SG for not using the toilet left on the back porch. @Radar, if you need a spot to squat (#1 or #2), take note.

AYG from the Rose back to campus. Circle up on the gravel – Flutter, J-Lo.


Notable stuff:

@KelseyGrammar ran to Gastonia and back before the workout. @Swede looking strong pushing through sleepless nights. @Strawberry might be a licensed garage door guy – @HB’s springs are hangin’ tough #NKOTB. @Pro #MartyMcFly fought through the cobwebs and delivered a nasty dose of pain. The pumpkin king himself, @Glossy, celebrates a birthday today. Hope someone buys him a new pair of copper shorts. @DA still waiting on a response from @linsanity on his hair product. If you dont get a response, ask @SG – dude pulled off his toboggan rocking a fresh swoop. Lots of product (or grease?) on that moptop. @Fletch led the pace, as usual. Almost lost @IH on the YR flyby. Swear I heard some sniffles and sobs as we cruised past. Hard to accept it buddy, but she gone.

We ran 4.7 miles today and banged out 200+ merkins. Pretty stout for a workout not advertised as a running workout. @PH- watch out #FastTwitch

Thanks @IH for the takeout. Thoughts and prayers for you and your crew in Nicaragua on the bridge next week. Make sure that harness is high and tight, kinda like yer shorts.

Solid work today, men. A lot more merkins than I was hoping for today. On the bright side, I’m feeling like the incredible hulk on Halloween.

Happy Birthday Gloss. Everyone mark the calendar for next year. He’s a halloweenie and will be needing additional burpees. The 63 we did today weren’t enough for that beast of a man.
