17 PAX did a little inch worm on the beach this morning - with some awesome F2 coffeteria afterward at The Workshop.

Warmorama was copperhead squats IC, toy soldiers IC, arm circles and raise the roof IC, and motivators IC.

Fellowship mosey to the public dock parking lot where we did an escalator of groiners, line jumps, and jump squats.

Fellowship mosey to the beach where we inch-wormed parallel to the water line. Start in high plank, walk your feet forward into a downward dog position; do 2 Carolina dry docks, then walk your hands forward into a high plank position; do 2 merkins; then repeato....

Took a few pit stops from the inch-worm to do some sand angels IC, climb the rope IC, and more sand angels IC.

Plenty of inch-worm -- then an audible for a dip in the ocean.

Mosey back to AO

This Saturday do something: work with @10-count and @EOM to pick up the six at Toby's families home and work on the honeydo list; or follow @Gravity up to the Sasquatch ruck/workout at F3 ENC.

Invest in the relationship with your Ms and 2.0s. The greenest grass is the grass you water.

Warm o Rama SSH 1 burpee due to @gasket being late Abe begoda Gravel pickers Mamba night clubs

The thang YHC had a left over solo cup from the ???? MAMBA BLOCK PARTY???? filled with the goodness from Wednesday.  One Pax picks exercise from the cup. Mosey around Carolina Lake and stop at each pier. 25 reps at 1st pier, 20 at the next, then 15. Stop at the old glory island for 50 LBCs. 10 reps at the last pier.

YHC assured the PAX that He took the piece of paper that said burpees out of the cup because YHC simply did not want to do any more burpees.

1st lap The ever brave gasket selected the first piece from the cup which was squats. Upon reaching the second pier we were nearly attacked by a baby cormorant. He started flapping his wings but refused to leave his roost. Birkenstock noted that he was moving into the most famous karate move of all time. Before he could Danny Laruso us, We completed the exercise and got the heck out of there.

2nd lap The even more brave Amy grant selected smurf Jack’s 4 count. At the 2nd pier the baby cormorant remained steadfast. This time only a slight raising his wings to remind us whose pier this was. YHC thought he heard The duck call something in on a radio…but no. That’s crazy. He’s a duck.

3rd lap Birkenstock picked balls to the wall.

After putting our balls to the wall of the cormorants pier, he apparently had had enough. we left the pier and we’re nearly ambushed by the cormorant’s special forces team. The PAX noted something strange on the trail that had not been there before. Is it a dog? Is it a dead duck? Looks like a cat? Nope. It was alligator snapping turtle team 6 in a full ghillie suit. Luckily the PAX had picked up our pace because if he had 30 more seconds to get into position, one unluckily PAX was sure to have lost a foot.

After our close call, Birkenstock mentioned that maybe we had not done enough merkins. At old glory island we decided to not do LBC but instead perform 22 merkins to remember and honor the 22 veterans that take their own life every day.

After the last lap we did not have time for a 4th lap so YHC pulled two pieces of paper from the Mamba block party solo cup. One in each hand and asked @gasket to pick a hand. @gasket tried to trick YHC and looked at the left hand but said right.

YHC opened the folded paper from the right hand which read….. BURPEES. What!?!? How could this be!?!? YHC was sure that he took this out.

25 burpees OYO.

About half way through the burpees, YHC mention that he was sure that he took it out. @birkenstock reminded the PAX, that is how you get pregnant.

Mosey to AO. Circle pump of merkins to 100.

COT Prayers for @teacherspet and his family to have comfort and peace after the passing of his grandfather. Pray for @cowbell’s M for healing.

Split into 2 lines and Indian Run to the real estate building.

Circle Up.  10 Tuck Jumps then 10 SSH (2 Rounds). I was planning on 3 rounds but doing those exercises and having to count left YHC sucking air.

Continue Indian Run to the beach.  

Get ready to get wet.  Line up in a straight line on the dune line interlocking arms. Together, lunge walk to the surf.  Everyone on your 6 in the surf for flutter kicks x 20 IC.  (YHC started to sound like a pubescent teenager because I had to yell to be heard over the crashing waves.)

Sprint back to the dune line and do 5 burpees.

Repeat lunge walk line to the surf.  Do 22 Merkins IC facing the ocean.  Run back to dune line and do 5 burpees

Repeat lunge walk to the surf and lay down for flutter kicks.  We only did 11 IC because YHC though he was going to pass out from yelling over the noise of the surf.  Run back to the dune line and do 5 burpees

Next exercise: Surfentine Crawl: Everyone line up in high plank facing the condos.  Leave space for a pax to crawl through.  Starting from the left, each pax bear crawls in a serpentine route through the line of pax until they got to the end of the line and then held high plank.  (@the Hoff and @Gump decided to army crawl under each pax).  

Thanks to @Vogue for calling YHC out for almost overlooking the rinse in the ocean before our run back to the AO.

After a quick regrouping at the real estate office where @Sir-mix-a-lot led the group in 50 of something terrible, the group ran back to the AO for a circle burp.  42 burpees were completed by each pax in just under 4 minutes.  

FNG’s we’re named.  Welcome Training Wheels and Baguette.  Prayers for @Sandman and the group of campers coming to NC this week.  TClaps for @The Hoff for completing his first novel.  See @Sir-Mix-a-Lot for a discount on the book ????.  Praises for Nightlight for his dedication to finish reading his book before school starts.

Unbelievable, 16 Pax showed up for a beatdown at the Fuel Depot. And to think we just started this AO a few weeks ago. At this pace, we'll need to start another ruck AO next month.

Parrot Head right away called me out on the weight of my sandbag, and he was probably right. I'll be sure to be up to F3 code by next week.

WARM-o-RAMA:

Baby Arm Circles 10x each way IC Imperial Walkers x 10 IC Gravel Pickers x 10 IC

THE THANG:

Lunge Press, Push and Pull

Pax took their ruck off and held it while they did 4 lunges, stopped, and then did 5 overhead presses, 5 push presses, and 5 upright rows. Rinse and repeat to the end of the parking lot and back.

Sandbag Ladder

We moseyed to the tennis courts and put our rucks back on. We then each carried our sandbag to the end of the court and back where we did 1 merkin, 1 squat, and 1 burpee. We did ascending reps to 5.

We all then rucked around LLP with our sandbags and made it back to the AO at exactly 6:15.

Mary: No time

COT/MOLESKIN:

Once again, couldn't be happier to see 16 Pax show up for the Depot. It's inspiring to work out with all the Pax and look forward to the ruck expansion in Cape Fear.

Napa - Do they sell dog rucks? Niles - "Walk on the Ocean" will be on the next ruck soundtrack Steak Knives - Thanks for the company on the EC ruck and best of luck with your new Amish friends

The THANG 4 PAX took the Ruck for a hike around campus, while 12 PAX went for a run, accompanied by 2 Puppers. We moseyed the Cross-city trail to the back side of campus and along Rose Ave. As the Cross-city trail turns down Rill Rd., we stayed straight on Mallard Dr. At the first, left, runners turned onto Clear Run Dr. We remained on Clear Run until it hits College Acres. PAX turned left, again, and ran until College Acres meets Racine Dr. This brought us back to campus by the water towers. We moseyed between buildings and water fountains until we made it back to Lot M. Some PAX stayed in the lot for some broga, others went to the parking deck for one last run up the stairs and back down. All returned to the Lot, unscathed, and the runners achieved between 4.5 and 5 miles.

Prayers for Rafiki, we miss you in the gloom and pray you are doing well. Hope to see you soon! Prayers for Hush and his son. Tom Sawyer has the Q at Baywatch on Saturday. He is requesting that just 1,000 PAX show up for his beatdown, that’s it… let’s make it happen!

Always an honor and a privilege to lead a fine group of HIMs.

COT: Words of insight from Goat, show grace to others despite their political or philosophical differences. What makes America the best country on the planet is our differences and that we all part of this great country and we are children of God.

Prayers of comfort to those out there who have experienced a loss of a loved one recently, and prayers of healing for those out there that are presently suffering. In this we pray Amen.
