Nobody jumped on anybody


A cool, misty 40º


Welcomed and disclaimed, no FNGs, ain’t nobody professional, etc., expect modifications because Carmen Sandiego is bringing the pain all around the world


SSH (IC) x20, Daisy pickers (IC), x20, appropriately sized arm circles (IC) x20

“Franco Tribute” with partner(s):

  • Squat jumps over partner who merkins  -> sprint length of parking lot
  • Switch roles between jumper and merkiner -> bear crawl width of parking lot
  • Team big boy sit ups -> sprint length of parking lot
  • Team big boy sit ups -> bear crawl width of parking lot
  • Repeat. Each bullet above went from 20 to 5 and back up to 20, by 5s


Abandoned the Shell plan due to wetness, so extra mosey time (15 mins) was donated to Mary.

We did merkins around the world, squats to planks around the world, LOLs (IC x10 per side per letter), Freddie Mercury (IC x20), Iron Cross (for way too long),  Manatee (for not long enough), stranded cockroach (?) ICx10, flutter kicks (IC x 20) (sir mix-a-lot remixed)


15 PAX (0 FNGs) – Dewey, Bottomless, Goldilocks, Mirage, Doc Hollywood, Handsy, Crayfish, One Eyed Willie, Windex, Blart, One and Done, Carmen Sandiego, Sir Mix-A-Lot, Altar Boy, Mudslide

Matthew 11:28-30 – Come to me all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.

Challenge: We find rest in Jesus through followership. If we are unable to find rest, we may not be yoked with him or we may be trying to lead.

Sir Mix-A-Lot beached his manatee. Save the manatees.

Tomorrow’s run at Old Forest starts at 4:50 for some hearty (half)marathon prep.
