Well, that was terrible!

  • When: 07/13/2019
  • QIC: Wexler
  • The PAX: Sugar, Bull, Hong Kong Phooey, Hootie, Big Bird, Techmo, Scooter, Jackie Chiles, Coppertone, Trainwreck, Dick Tracy, Starsky, Wexler


13 Men braved the humidity and the heat to get strong while complaining about the humidity and heat!  YHC had just come in from one of the worst Bull Runs where he started out too fast and saw his energy drop significantly with every step.  Barely able to see straight or catch my breath, we got right into it:

The Thang:

The Bobstacle Course

  • 4 cones set up like a baseball field
  • Home – 10 Merkins
  • Bear Crawl to 1st Base
  • Pick up weight plate – 20x Driving the Car
  • Fast feet through the Agility Ladder to 2nd Base
  • 10 C.D.D.
  • Side run through the Hurdles to 3rd Base
  • 10 Medicine Ball Thruster Catches
  • Zig Zag Sprint back to Home
  • Repeato 2x
  • Rest of Pax cycle through 10 Squats and 10 Merkins while waiting to run

YHC had to take a break to get water from being completely depleted due to said Bull Run and told Pax when they finish to meet me at the Pavillion to pick teams.  Using the Bobstacle Course, we were going to split into two teams.  Starting at opposite ends we were going to run through it to see who would be crowned the Champions.  I have been working on this for years and I knew the Pax were going to be thrilled!  The Trophy had just come in last night and I was excited to hand it to the winners!

As I raced back down to the field to tell everyone the plan, my Bobstacle Course was gone.  The Pax, in an apparent Mutiny, took it all down in the 45 seconds I was gone.  Crestfallen, i was told they would put it back up, but it was too late!  It took me all morning to assemble it and we had to move on…..to the Pavilion!

I needed more water at this point and it was all gone.  I got smart this time and brought the Pax with me to the water fountain.  No Q Jacking if they never leave the Q.

Announcements:

  • Prayers for @Coppertone’s family friend’s kid (Bentley) that’s 4-years old and has leukemia.  He had a recent fever that’s pretty bad and preventing him from getting his medicine.  Keep him and the family in your prayers.  Sounds like that could be very serious.

Holy smokes that humidity was no joke!  Great work out there everyone!  Thank you for playing along on my obstacle course.  Especially as I was making no sense for the first 15 minutes of the Beatdown.  Appreciated @DickTracy and @Sugar trying to make me think I was hallucinating when those two women walked by.  I hope you applied Aloe to the Sick Burn I unleashed on both of you!  Great to have @Starsky back from Rome.  However, his form on the Driving the Car exercise made it look like he was still cruising around in a Vespa.  Great to see @Tecmo out again!  @Hongkongphooey is right.  He is way ahead of all the other 12 year olds NOT out there!  You are a great dad @BigBird!  Glad we educated him on Tecmo Bowl last week and that @Bull was able to each him The Worm today!  Props to @Hootie for finding the only shade on the road underneath a car.  Props to @Scooter for doing it all with his knee not feeling 100%.  Thank you to @Clueless and @Tbone for dragging me back in from the Bull Run.

Everyone was pushing it hard out there.  You really had no option with that heat.  Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate.

Special T Claps for @Bull who was the only one to make it through all three sections of the Tri-Wexler-athon!  We are having your medal engraved and once @Riptide certifies it, we will have a presentation ceremony!

Thank you all for supporting me through today and as always, thanks you for coming out, pushing me, and allowing me the opportunity to lead!
