Cool temps greeted the PAX as they rolled in, about 38 at launch. Smaller numbers for the post election morning workout. Point Break said he was up until 2 watching it but still posted. YHC helped Margo get the best Christmas display in Charlotte started the night before. It felt like a HC by Margo, but the fartsack prevailed. Mr. Miyagi may be a more appropriate name for Margo. “Before you learn art of Christmas lights, first, you trim the hedges.” With little time to prepare, YHC went with a similar weinke from my Q last week at NOE. 4 respects rolled in and we were off.
Mosey to the turf patio for COP.

Mosey to the Avenue of Trees closest to the church. Lunge walk to first tree, run to second and 5 jumpsquats, lunge walk to third, run to fourth and 5 jumpsquats all the way to the end.
Using every other tree, we next ran a merkin suicide. Run to the second tree, 5 dry docks, back to start. Run back to second tree, 5 dry docks, run to fourth tree 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 to the rock pile by the baseball fields, grab a rock and groups of 3. YHC was the odd man out and used the timer from the other groups. Ran a grinder from the rock pile to the hot box. In the group of 3 someone always running as the timer between the 2 stations.

Mosey back to launch. Smokey with the prayer.
Super easy group today. The grinders always take more time than expected, should have kept it at 3 rounds to leave some time for Mary. Not so much mumblechatter as it was real conversations. Kind of crazy, ha. Snuka and I got caught up on Smokey’s church and all the great things they are doing. Plenty of election talk, Point Break was our knowledge base and just needed an interactive map and we would have been good to go. The 4 respects I’ll put up against any other PAX in A51, some straight up fast and strong guys. Now that Meathead is back at 5:30 we even had a joint COT. The negotiations started a few weeks ago and we were able to iron things out at the blood drive. Voodoo holds a hard line, but you got to stay on the good side of the Nantan. Amazing what can be worked out when guys get together over a pint. Ductwork on Q next week.
