YHC arrived on this glorious morning in a clown car with Plebe, Pidgeon, and Laettner at about 5:23. I was pleased to see Snookie and a mystery Pax already there and chatting. Upon further inspection, the mystery Pax turned out to be the king of breakfast sandwiches himself, Mcmuffin. Griswold rolled in right behind us followed a few moments later by Costanza. Shovel flags were planted and we circled up. Griswold informs YHC at this point that Couch Potato was seen inbound on foot, so we remained on the lookout for him. 3, 2, and 1 minute warnings were given. Still no Couch Potato so we began. A quick mission statement was given and we began our mosey down to the other park at the bridge. We met Couch Potato along the way, paused briefly for two burpees, (although I felt a little unsure about these since he technically started his workout long before the rest of us) and strolled into the park. We circled up around ole Otway Burns for


  • Sun gods x 15 IC F&R
  • Cotton Pickers x 15 IC
  • Imperial Walkers x 20 IC
  • Windmills x 15 IC

From there we moseyed up to the parking lot on top of the hill at the bank for

The Thang

While one Pax member made the run down through the bank drive thru and back up the hill, the remaining Pax would perform an exercise. When he returned, a new exercise would be called and the next Pax member would run. All exercises were OYO AMRAP. The exercises were

  • Monkey humpers
  • Merkins
  • Lbc
  • Prison squats
  • Burpees
  • Plankjacks
  • Catalina wine mixers
  • Mountain climbers
  • Goofballs
  • Hand release merkins
  • Overhead claps
  • Lsf
  • American hammers
  • Peter parkers
  • Carolina dry docks
  • Air presses
  • Monkey humpers
  • Merkins
  • Lbc
  • Prison squats
  • Burpees

At this point, a female member of the community came out on her porch to loudly inform us that we were in a residential area and that she needed her beauty sleep (or something like that). This was the point where YHC had already planned to mosey to the next location anyway, so we obliged. We moseyed back to Riverview Park and down to the long waterfront dock for part two of

The Thang


This is a YHC original. For this exercise, the Pax started at one end of the long dock in a people’s chair facing the water and the slow sunrise. The Pax member on the end would bear crawl around the other Pax to the front and resume the people’s chair. The next pax would follow suit, like an Indian run. We continued this down the length of the dock and back up to the gazebo at the start. I didn’t measure but I think it was pushing 100 yds. We hit the end at about 6:13 and the Pax was thinking it was time for Mary but YHC had other plans. We quickly grabbed a spot on the bench or rail for

  • Dips x 25
  • Urkins x 25
  • Dips x 10
  • Urkins x 10
  • Dips x 5
  • Urkins x 5

Hard stop 6:15


Announcements made about upcoming workouts and the convergence on Monday. Prayer requests made for Purplerain’s father, Cousin, who is having a surgical procedure today, along with the flood victims in Texas. Laettner took us out in prayer and we departed.

As always it is a pleasure to lead you great men who make me better everyday!
