PAX: Mogul, Wildebeest, Hack, Rowdy(FNG)
YHC arrived early to hide a surprise. Upon waiting the first to arrive was FNG (Rowdy) with questions about what we might be doing today… “So, are we just going to go for a run that way?” Yeah, pretty much, might do a few other things too. Everyone else arrived and we got started with a PAX of 5.

Split group into a group of 2 (Group A) and group of 3 (Group B). Both start at the same point at the same time.
Group A runs at 80-90% 3 light posts (approx 200yds) then drops for an exercise until group B arrives. First exercise was goofy man. Group B had started a slow trot when A took off. When B arrives they run 3 light posts and A trots. Repeato doing Goofy Man, Mountain Climbers, Merkins. This took us all the way to the bridge for those 3 rounds.

Mosey to THE GUARDRAIL. Partner up for decline plank walks. One partner plank walks while the other does squats (each team had to reach 100 squats). When plank walking partner stops/switch. Do the whole rail.
ROUND 2 – Each team runs back to starting point same as before, but sprinting 2 posts then doing an exercise. Squats, Lunges, Burpees. Those 3 rounds took us back to the shelter at the starting point end of the parking lot. YHC reveals the BERTHA BALLS. We lined up for trip up the hill around the loop and back. Balls in front. The first 2 get as far as they can before handing their ball off to someone behind them, then they drop and do 3 burpees and trot back to the end of the line – REPEATO
Once we got up top we split into our A/B teams for a race down the hill to the start doing 2 burpees after a hand-off. It’s now only 0647 so we have time to spare.
We use the parking lot to do a 40yd bear crawl and lunge back, then do 8-count bodybuilders for a nice slow set of 15 and call it to name our FNG.
Wildebeest takes us out in prayer after we name our FNG – Rowdy for his wrestling background after Rowdy Roddy Piper. We ran hard and managed to squeeze a lot in for just 5 people. Always glad for the company and the push.
