Dora joins the 10K Merkin Challenge

YHC rolled up with 6 other PAX in the gloom. It was verified “suck it bros” temps as DISCLAIMER was called and then to WARMARAMA

Indian run to the rock at HRMS. All IC:

  • SSH (20X)
  • Merkins (10X)
  • Windmill (10X)
  • Derkins (5X)
  • Cotton Pickers (10X)

Mosey to large wall at school:

  • Air Presses in People’s Chair (20X)


Mosey down to the field and the plan was called:

Partner up for Dora. P1 does exercise while P2 runs the width of the field. Then they switch. Burpees, WWII, and then Merkins. 100, 200, and 300 – respectively with reps being shared by each team. Then descend down the ladder.

Here’s how it actually worked out:

  • Burpees (100X)
  • WWII (200X)
  • Merkins (300X)
  • WWII (200X)        <— Time ran out somewhere in the middle of this
  • Burpees (100X)

Mosey back to the AO for MARY

  • YHC stretched out WARMARMA, because every Dora backblast had some sort of ad libbing to round out the clock. TIL: the Burpee, WWII, and Merkin combo will fill out a workout.
  • As always, it’s an honor to lead you fellas.

For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light. Colossians 1:9-12
