YHC got to launch about the same time as the pre-runners of War Eagle, Cooter 2 and Drano were heading back from the run. Conditions were pretty windy out there, temps in the 50s, setting up a pretty windy and rainy day. YHC got home from the workout and lost power for pretty much all of Thursday. With being off on Friday and a Halloween weekend, we have what has become my most tardy backblast. So here goes remembering what happened 4 days ago after a Halloween holiday weekend.
Mosey to the parking lot in front of the Teeter for COP.

Mosey down the parking lots to Target. With 5 rows of parking spaces in front of us, we ran a merkin suicide. Run to the first row, 5 dry docks, back to start. Run back to first row, 5 dry docks, run to second row 5 merkins, back to start. Each time continuing the 5 from the previous run working up to 5 dry docks, 5 merkins, 5 wide arm, 5 diamond, 5 burpees for a total of 25 dry docks, 20 merkins, 15 wide arms, 10 diamonds and 5 burpees.
Mosey across the street to St. Matt’s, grab a rock and groups of 3. Ran a grinder from the Rea entrance to the wall at the Elm entrance. In the group of 3 someone always running as the timer between the 2 stations. Original plan was for everyone to have 4 rounds at the 2 stations.
Rea entrance Elm
YHC was in the first group at the wall, and after doing derkins for that long we combined the first two rounds and did 3 total.
Mosey back to Stonecrest to the fountains for some Freddy.

Mosey back to launch.
Great group of A51 and SOBs this morning, solid chatter. We started with 10, and at some point during the merkin suicides Pop Tart and Floorslapper joined us. Pop Tart did give the full disclosure that we were his sloppy seconds of the morning after remembering Hydra started at 6. We’ll take it. The grinder run at St. Matt’s was definitely longer than expected. Glad we combined those 1st 2 legs. We lost Mighty Mite heading to the fountains. He was going to go in the Teeter but didn’t have a mask. He met us back at launch and gave the warning to avoid the hills behind the theatre for a few weeks. So noted. Point Break may have called out YHC for some poor counting/math at the fountains, but that was so long ago I just don’t remember it. I do remember Mighty Mite showing us a picture of him as a kid with his dad circa mid 80’s. His dad looks exactly like Borat, khaki suit and all. Thanks Circuit City for the invite and giving me the lay of the land. Will be back.
