Gorillas in the Mist

And he hath said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my power is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” 2 Corinthians 12:9 ASV

Gravel Pickers

Dynamic warm-up in motion around the parking lot.

Indian/Washington Run – headed to Goose Poop Island. During the run I explain that people on Twitter think the Indian Run should be called the Washington Run – but Washington didn’t run, and that’s why this place is so great. A 15-man Indian Run is fun – nice long sprints to get to the front.

Goose Poop Island: Partner up for Dora 1-2-3.

Partner A :

100 Box Jump Burpees

200 Derkins

300 Box Squats (sit on the wall at a dead stop, then stand)

Partner B:

Run to the pull-up bars and complete 5 pull-ups.

We end at 0605 – Indian Run back to the AO

Mary: Flutter kicks x 20 IC.


What a blessing to have Jiffy Pop back in the gloom after his scary, high speed minivan wreck. Easily sliding 100+ feet on the hood of the car, clipping a tractor trailer, a DOT truck and some other little energy efficient car in that crazy stretch on I-95 by South of the Border. The truck was loaded with marble/slate slabs for future countertops – prayers the damage is less than the insurance coverage.  We are thankful you stayed committed to celebrating your family at Disney World – they deserved the nice vacation.

Patchouli: man, the men in this COT have so much compassion for you not being able to be by your M’s side during this current health scare. Brother, we love you and we are available for whatever you need – just let us know.


Welcome to the Gloom FNG – BoTime. Man, it was tough naming you, but you finally shared the story of your wedding cake being a Bojangles bucket of chicken – later sharing the image on Slack – too funny. Plan now to post Monday at Heavy Metal Monday – we have been waiting for you, please don’t let the guys down, we’re counting on you.

Some of y’all are getting really strong and really fast. It might be time to add a run or ruck to your workout regimen. Take Big Sky’s lead and Q something that you feel uncomfortable doing.

AS always, its an honor to lead and I’m grateful for my men in the gloom that allow me to lead.
