Wet Beaver #TWSS

DATE: 2023-02-02 AO: Peak-51 Q: beaver PAX: lois, Spammer, booyah, Full House FNGs: None COUNT: 5 Lois recounting this …
WARMUP: Ran to Stumptown Park. It was raining. Did the usual stuff (SSH, IW, MC, etc.) under a nice cozy roof on the stage. Q decides to leave this dry spot for reasons unclear to YHC. THE THANG: Ran behind the school. Did starfish with a bunch of upper-body work, but, in the middle, did 10 crunches. This reminds YHC of watching a Steve Spurrier press conference after a rainy game, where he said the team needed to do some “wet butt drills.” Ran with said wet butts past launch, turned to the grass patch where the dogs of Matthews do their thing, did some bear crawls and crab walks. Between residual cussedness and wet butt, YHC modified as needed. MARY: Ran back to launch. Did some of this. Was still wet. ANNOUNCEMENTS: Blood drive and such. COT: Had one. Prayed for Sensei’s knee. Prayed for Slim Fast’s strained pinky fingernail.

THE THANG: On our group text last night, I suggested we run AYG to Providence this morning, so when Flipper texted that he had stomach issues this morning, it meant I was Qing. 5 of us ran the called route while 2 (TL and Hairball) met up with Joker and Grasshopper at the track and 2 (Frasier and Dosey Doe) started early for some marathon training. Strong work by the 4 pax that pushed for Providence. We didn’t make it, but everyone got to Raintree Lane and most got to Four Mile Creek or to the hill leading to it. Wolverine definitely could have made it, but decided to keep me company instead.
MARY: we don’t do that either.
ANNOUNCEMENTS: 3/3 Blood Drive!
COT: Chopper took us out.
