4:20 Smokefest

THE SCENE: Nice weather.  We arrived and they were setting up  a stage on the track.  We discovered a circular sidewalk exactly 1/4 mile long immediately to the north of the track, so we set up there.

(Counting was terrible as usual with Crayfish Q)

  • Side Straddle Hops
  • Windmill
  • Emperial Walkers
  • Butt-Kickers
  • Short mosey


We started with a quarter mile race.  The first 9 were part of the fast group and the last 10 were part of the slow group.

Peyote Run (Like an Indian Run except crazier)
First group kept 8-9 minute pace and slow group kept 10-12 minute pace.  While the group jogs in a line, the man in the back sprints up to the front, when he arrives, the next man in the back sprints up to the front.

The first Peyote Run was two laps around the track running forward.

Marijuana Merkins (Slow merkins while taking deep breaths in and out).  We did this for a few minutes then moved on to more Peyote running.

Peyote Run Reverse
The 2nd Peyote Run was two laps around the track with the group jogging  backward, but sprinters running forward.

Dips When Pax completed Peyote runs they began dips on the curb for a few minutes.  

Peyote Run Side to Side
The 3rd Peyote Run was two laps around the track with the group side-stepping sideways, but sprinters running forward.

Carolina Drydocks When Pax completed Peyote runs they began carolina dry-docks for a few minutes.  

Free Run Two laps at your own pace

    I used to smoke weed every day.  One time on 4:20a.m. on April 20th while in a party in NOLA we smoked a joint with an ounce of weed in it.  I kept chasing after more, trying to get higher and higher but it never satisfied.  Ephesians 5:18 says, “Don’t be drunk with wine, because that will ruin your life. Instead, be filled with the Holy Spirit.”  This also applies to Gonja.  Since the Spirit of God has been in my life, leading, guiding, fulfilling me, I have found that gratification that I never could get from mind-altering chemicals.  I have found my purpose and my worth in the One who created me and accepted me.  And so I got up at 4:20 on 4/20 this year, not to try to get high, but to get better.  Thanks for being here with me.
