Where Have All the Cowboys Gone?

Pax:  Fault Line, Lex, Cottontail, Spack, Puddin, Christmas, Horsehead (Q)



Where is my John Wayne
Where is my prairie song
Where is my happy ending
Where have all the cowboys gone


7 for Kevlar, beating the Gummy over/under odds from last night.  The count did not include Gummy, however, who had more important things to do.



Run around

Warm up COP

Giant Starfish with 5 burpee center.

  • L1 – Leg circuit at the benches
  • L2 – Core ciruit around the medians
  • L3 – Merkin circuit on the big hill

Repeato a few times

7s on the big hill – Merkins and Jump Squats

Mary while ½ the pax run to the big rock and back.



 As I mentioned earlier, this workout appears to be hanging on for dear life.

  • Like a last-minute bathroom booger before a big meeting.
  • Like the last mystery gel-filled pieces of a Whitman’s Sampler.
  • Like that backgammon set that you keep around because it looks “classy” but doesn’t even have Checkers on the flip side.
  • Like that Pumpkin Spice White Claw that you have in the crisper.
  • Like that Gingham Pinafore that you know you will not ever  be able to squeeze your giant rump into but you keep around because it matches those fabulous black pumps you got at Marti and Liz.
  • Like Puddin’s gray shirt


Anyway, I think you get the point.  It’s still hanging around.  What’s different between Kevlar and the list above?  Kevlar can be awesome again.   With apologies to Puddin’s shirt, none of that other stuff has a chance.  Attendance is actually trending upward, but we haven’t even hit the worst winter weather yet.  Let’s hope for a turnaround.  Show up.


From this morning, just a few observations:

The Total Body Fitness Circuit was rehashed from a previous workout that only had 3 in attendance.  It was too good for that, so we revived it.  Cottontail has already mailed out a handwritten thank you letter, although with baby #14 on the way I’m not sure how he has time to do anything else.

Puddin Pop always brings the fun.  Sometimes it’s hard to decipher what he’s saying through the miasma that he is enveloped in, but I believe that most of his comments were about pre, post, and during bowel movement activities.  I tried to take notes, but ran out of toilet paper.


Spackler admitted that he considered Header’s workout at Joust but posted Kevlar for the commentary and the backblast.  We all know what really happened that time Header tried to use the FBC Lottie Moon collection plate as a Frisbee over there – total disaster.

Did you know that James Best was in several Andy Griffith episodes before he went on to play Roscoe on the Dukes of Hazzard?  He played rising country music star Jim Lindsey, who somehow managed to get a screaming electric guitar sound out of an unplugged acoustic that he barely touched.  Guess what his real first name is?  Jewel.  He was also a black belt in karate, which helps with a first name like that.  Denver Pyle (Uncle Jesse) was also in Mayberry for a while as the Darling family Patriarch.

This backblast is going to make the Hangers On list soon, so we’ll end it here.

Post Kevlar in 2020.  Make Kevlar Great Again
