When Partner B completes his 5 trips, the Men switch roles.
Continue until the group performs 150 total burpees.

COT / BOM:  Be a Man.

“Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. 14 Let all that you do be done in love.” 1 Corinthians 16 (emphasis added)

Four Pillars of Authentic Manhood:
1. Reject Passivity.
2. Accept Responsiblity.
3. Lead Courageously.
4. Expect a Greater Reward.
Taken from The Quest for Authentic Manhood by Robert Lewis

Moleskin: Eighteen Men did a lot of running and a lot of burping on a cool, clear morning. I never tire of this stuff, and I was encouraged to meet some guys I hadn’t known before. Trophy Wife was an Irish Goodbye. Fast PAX doubled back to catch the Six on the way to the pavilion so we all stayed together. Teacher’s Pet provided an excellent Parking Lot Coffeeteria afterward.
