Crazy Eights 101819

THE SCENE: Thankful for bathroom facilities next to parking lot. Just sayin. Shiny, definitely shiny, the AO, not the potty.


Disclaimed along with comment about how wonderful the crapper proximity is.
Arm circles x 9 IC, Reverse AC x 9 IC, IWs x 30 IC, DPs x 9, SSH x 30 and yes, we did Gorilla Humpers (sort of a nod toward Gorilla Canoodlers aka Monkey Humpers). Liberace can’t say we did Monkey Humpers. You’re welcome.

Sling Shot Run (politically correct Indian Run) one rotation. Stop.
8 Squat Jacks, 8 Merkins, 8 BBS

REPEAT until around bottom of 8.

Bearcrawl to amphitheatre (only 10 yd)

8 box jumps, 8 dips, 8 step ups 2=1 on each row x 4 rows. Bearcrawl to top of hill.

Going counterclockwise, Sling Shot Run one rotation. Stop.
8 Burpees, 8 Bobby Hurleys, 8 sec plank
REPEAT until back around.
Well, almost all the way. Top of 8 was way bigger, so we OMAHA’d to Lunge Walks instead of running. So much more fun.

Bearcrawl to bottom of 8.

RINSE/REPEAT except we only made it to the Bearcrawl to top of amphitheater before time to do Mary.

Freddy Mercury x 30
American Hammer x 30
Hold Plank of Thanks until end.

Strength and Decency (excerpt)
Theodore Roosevelt
It is peculiarly incumbent upon you who have strength to set a right example to others. I ask you to remember that you cannot retain your self-respect if you are loose and foul of tongue, that a man who is to lead a clean and honorable life must inevitably suffer if his speech likewise is not clean and honorable. Every man here knows the temptations that beset all of us in this world. At times any man will slip. I do not expect perfection, but I do expect genuine and sincere effort toward being decent and cleanly in thought, in word, and in deed. As I said at the outset, I hail the work of this society as typifying one of those forces which tend to the betterment and uplifting of our social system. Our whole effort should be toward securing a combination of the strong qualities with those qualities which we term virtues. I expect you to be strong. I would not respect you if you were not. I do not want to see Christianity professed only by weaklings; I
want to see it a moving spirit among men of strength. I do not expect you to lose one particle of your strength or courage by being decent. On the contrary, I should hope to see each man who is a member of this society, from his membership in it become all the fitter to do the rough work of the world; all the fitter to work in time of peace; and if, which may Heaven forfend, war should come, all the fitter to fight in time of war. I desire to see in this country the decent men strong and the strong men decent, and until we get that combination in pretty good shape we are not going to be by any means as successful as we should be.
