Humid Old Glory

21 men from tradition and the precinct came together to celebrate our monthly running of Old Glory. Here’s what we do….

Start at Shovel Flag and run 1 mile loop. Then…

Station #1: 20 x Merkins (front/right corner of Church)

Station #2: 20 x Jump Squats (back/right corner of Church)

Station #3: 10 x Pull-ups (Outback)

Station #4: 20 x WWII Sit-ups (near street)

Back to Shovel Flag – That’s 1 round. Rinse and repeat Stations 1-4 as many times as you can (the loop is 0.4 miles). Regroup at 6am, then finish with another mile run, casual this time, front man carries Old Glory and six carries Tradition Flag.

Great push by everyone this morning. Personally, I think the humidity makes each worker harder, but especially Old Glory. It’s a great workout though. As usual, below are the names (in alphabetical order) and number of complete laps plus additional stations completed around the AO (rounded down to nearest quarter lap). If you were here the last 4 months, your previous round totals are posted as well. Write these down somewhere and plan to beat your own record next month! As with previous months, these are intentionally not listed in order of who “won” because this event is not a competition with one another, but rather a true “You vs You” opportunity to push your own limits. Whether you did 1 full round or 5, the point was to do YOUR best. Great job!

    Jelly and Man-down – Nice organization and lead this am. Been wanting to get some running in – so this was excellent. Thanks!

    Did anyone else notice the PAX is in Alphabetic Order? Which one of you 2 is OCD? @ForgottenJelly or @ManDown

    1. GentleGrizzly

      I guess it was a copy and paste huh? Just read the Moleskin. Still OCD in the PAX field up top.

  3. Man Down

    @Speechless – SOLID effort out there brother. You stayed at it and finished strong (even if you could barely talk at the end!).
    Welcome to @Sid!
    @Urlacher, only 4.50?. You’re slipping man.

    If anyone cares to know, the loop we do during Old Glory is about 2000 ft (thanks Google maps), so 3 loops is a little over another mile. Way to push gents.

      1. GentleGrizzly

        Actually…….its .3787878 miles if you do the math. Don’t argue with the former Math Teacher! Haha. Also we don’t measure in African Rivers, we measure in miles, not KM either.

          Took me a moment to figure out the African Rivers comment, but that’s pretty funny.

          So the point here is that if you ran 1 lap and the two miles, you ran a total of 3.2 miles. For two laps you did 4.4 miles, 3 laps is 5.6 miles, etc. Pretty cool guys when you look at it like this. That’s a lot of running.

          1. GentleGrizzly

            Stick to teaching Science methods my friend. 1 lap + 2 miles = 2.378 miles, 2 laps + 2 miles = 2.757 miles, 3 laps + 2 miles = 3.136 miles, 4 laps + 2 miles = 3.51 miles, 5 laps + 2 miles = 3.893 miles.

          2. Man Down

            Yeah, that was some pretty miserable math there FJ! And with your “Jelly Cut” at the business park, you have to shave an additional 50 yards off GG’s numbers!

            Well damn, that was some terrible math. I know what it was. The coffee shop environment made me lose brain cells. Totally off. not good.

    If an electric train is traveling at 90 miles an hour in a westerly direction and the wind is blowing from the north, in which direction is the smoke blowing? Ah!! Great workout, I can’t wait till next time so I can crush my previous lap count!! Thanks Man Down and Forgotten Jelly.
