Date: 4-24-18

# of PAX: 8

PAX: Busted Grill, Morpheus, Mr. Kotter, Pony Express, Daggerboard, Money Gun, LETC

Warm Up:

Seal Claps x 20 IC
“Ralphs” named by Busted Grill after this sort of gyrating motion front, side, back, side name after Wreck it Ralph. We did 20!
Busted Grill proclaims that “y’all ruckers” are free to go. I didn’t like his tone but off LETC and YHC swam!

I had intentions of attempting to kill us or at least potentially maim us on the climbing rope at the track. Two issues there – track was locked, I guess Without Limits either takes Tuesday off or is limited by the rain. Issue two – LETC explained that the climbing rope has been gone for some time. Well, the more you know! Since that is scrapped, we will do some merkins, squats and overhead ruck presses with a hold in the middle of the reps on the sidewalk.

We then continue our scenic tour of campus along the cross city trail past Brooks Field and then following Reigel past Graham and Hewlett. Hang a left on Walton and wheel into the basketball courts where YHC spotted some benches. We performed 10 Incline Merkins, 10 Dips and 40 Step-ups.

We cut behind the gym and over Price onto Chancellor’s Walk, where we found ourselves on the steps of Dobo Hall! Start on bottom step and perform a merkin on each step until you reach the top. LETC thought it wise to do the same on the way back down. It was awkward at best, but no one was injured. I then did my best Hoff impression of zig zagging up and down the steps with LETC in tow.

We strolled down Chancellor’s and exchanged pleasantries with what was no doubt a UNCW Staff member out in the soggy mess. We then cut back to the AO, but we still had 5 minutes. YHC spotted the lighted fountain behind the Burney Center. Once we arrived my mind went blank so I called on LETC for an exercise. 20 Overhead Ruck Step-ups. That sucked.

Two minutes left so we rucked on back to the AO where our runners were filing in, doing merkins while they waited.

BG was the final one doing merkins and pops and exclaims, “Where are those ruckers?!”. Again, tone….We exclaimed that we had arrived! Wet but none worse for the wear. We are out of time and BG didn’t have his “Thing” that judging by his hand signals I determined to mean phone. So I grabbed mine and we wrapped up.

The runners covered a distance unknown to YHC at this point of writing. It was in the words of Busted Grill, “The furthest I’ve run in some time!”. Sounds like a long ways to me.


-T-Claps to all the PAX who fought the fartsack and got better in the rain! Getting out the door was more than half the battle this morning. Congrats to those who won!
-LETC, enjoyed our long stroll in the park. Appreciate your brotherhood!
-Morpheus, you seemed a little lost when we brought it in at the end of COT. Did BG use that same tone with you that he used with us “ruckers”?
-Mr. Kotter – way to drive that clown car and round up your clowns this morning!
-Pony Express – your consistency is commendable. You’re a runner!
-Daggerboard and Money Gun – you are Mr. Kotter’s clowns by default.
-Tombstone – glad to see you leading the Eagles in the rain! Stay positive 🙂
