COP Out Backblast 01/06/18: The Theatre

PAX: Crossgrain, Dimon, Kournikova (REPSECT), T. Cruise, Savanna (RESPECT)

QIC: Francis

YHC woke up at 5am unable to sleep and decided to charge a speaker and make a playlist for the Gloom. Pulling up to the parking lot Crossgrain had planted the shovelflag in a snow bank because the ground was too solid to pierce. Kournikova joked that YHCs Q’ing meant running, which did.

After a brief mumblechatter, the PAX warmed up with 10 SSH and a mosey to the dock.

20 IC Merkins

15 Derkins OYO

As YHC was still waking up regardless of music, PAX began mosey around the lake, stopping every quarter for exercises.

YHC was notified it was 7:52 and time for a Thunderstorm, upon Crossgrain’s suggestion, mosey to shovel flag for last exercise.


AC/DCs Thunderstruck was played by YHC.

Each time “Thunder” is said, perform a Merkin

Plank throughout the entire song.

The PAX completed 30 merkins, while planking for 4:30 (Dimon holding plank the whole time) which led us to 0800.

PAX counted off, NameoRama and balled up for COT and BoM. Prayers offered by Crossgrain for Wildebeest’s family and our safety and health as we move into this week. It’s an honor as always to lead the men of the PAX and find reasons to laugh throughout a subzero early morning workout that would otherwise be spent at home, warm but without the Fellowship of the PAX. Thank you for the opportunities to lead.

YHC: Francis.
