The Thang
Each pax grabs a 25lb gravel sack, carries and uses it in the exercises for the following variation on Monte Carlo – Three stations (legs, arms, core) with four exercises each. Each exercise has an assigned card suit (hearts, spades, diamonds, clubs). With a deck of cards (2’s, 3’s, 4’s, 5’s taken out), When pax arrive at station, one card is randomly picked. Carry out two sets of the exercise according to the number and suit on the card. Draw a joker, then draw another card and double the count (its your lucky day). Run to next station and follow through until it’s time for mary.

Coolest morning since Spring – maybe explains the good turnout (for a Saturday).
Great to see Liger back again, and we were honored with Nail’s first Saturday appearance (shudder to think what would happen if he had a whole hour to Q us – nah, that’ll never happen on a Saturday)
CUJO! ALPHA BEAST – Leading the sled team around the grounds. His gravel sack was screamin’ trying to hold onto him.
Glad everyone survived running through the mulch forest (only it ain’t mulch yet. It’s a 4 inch carpet of splinters covering roots and gopher holes – fun fun fun! run run run!) and down the 9 ft drop without any wipeouts (was just waiting for it to happen though. Maybe we should go over the disclaimer again…)

People are starting to talk about the Fall USMC Mud Run. Don’t be left behind on the porch.

Please remember Shelly in your prayers…

Everyone rose to the occasion. Good job, guys. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to Q.

Until next time in the gloom…
