5 of every 7 PAX has a May birthday – it’s fact

5 of every 7 PAX has a May birthday – it’s fact

YHC rolled in to The Soon To Be Woody’s So We’re Told parking lot for another episode of The Brave. A solid Friday morning crew of seven rolled out of the parking lot at 0530 for a mashup of recycled Q’s YHC has put on before. It wasn’t a surprise to anyone when we started headed to YHC’s favorite feature of AO’s in this area – The Murderhorn.

The Thing

  • The warmup took the form of a mile-ish run to Thornhill.
  • Run in to Thornhill for a triple nickel at the cul-de-sac. LBC’s and American Hammers.
  • 5 Burpees OYO
  • Run to the playground area for another triple nickel. Picnic table jumps and Merkins.
  • 5 Burpees OYO
  • Run to the bottom of the Murderhorn for… a triple nickelĀ 
    • YHC was considering whether to do this the whole workout leading up to this, and finally decided to switch it up when we got there
    • Instead, we ran up the Murderhorn doing 10x merkins at each of 3 lampposts – regular, diamond, wide armed, and dealer’s choice
  • 5 Burpees OYO
  • Run in to the Regal parking lot for 2 rounds of celebrity four corners
    • 10x Mike Tysons
    • 10x J-Los
    • 10x Makhtar N’Diayes
    • 10x Bobby Hurleys
    • Run to center for 2 Burpees after each corner
    • Repeato
  • 5 Burpees OYO
  • 7’s on the hill – deconstructed burpees, so Merkins at the bottom and Squats at the top
  • 5 Burpees OYO
  • Run back to launch via BCP, stopping once for 10x LBCs IC
    • Burpees in order of getting back to launch – 1x for the first to get back, 2x for the second, 3x for the third and so on all the way to YHC in last to do the final 7x
  • Fin


  • This was a real smoker. We got in over 4.5 miles and still a lot of solid work on the way.
  • I know Soft Pretzel came in back to launch first and only had the 1 burpee.
  • I also know I was last with the 7 burpees, but too far back to know what the order was between us.
  • The sleeping cop at Thornhill clubhouse bounced after our 2nd or 3rd run up of the triple nickel. Had to be a little awkward for him to be woken up by a bunch of dudes running back in forth by his cruiser.
  • In COT I mentioned I’ve got a birthday Q at Arsenal next week and we figured out a lot of PAX had May birthdays, so just go ahead, and wish everyone happy birthday this month and you’ve got chance on your side that you’re right!
  • It’s always nice to hear a few grunts, groans, and complaints during the workout. I know it killed YHC and I had some pretty good feedback from other PAX too, during and after on Slack.

COT and Announcements

  • I dropped my new AO, The Bottom Line at Bridgehampton clubhouse, and want PAX to tell their friends. We’ve had FNG’s and regulars every week, it’s been great.
  • Thank you, Soft Pretzel, for taking us out.

Awesome job out there guys. There were a few times that I was in six position thinking, damn these are some bad asses. Keep up the good work.
