22 PAX gathered in the gloom for the final Jumanji-led metric of the fall quarter. Big Bird had a premonition of doom when looking at a Spartan Race email blast. And indeed his premonition came true as the PAX did a brief warm-up and then headed to the track for The Thang….

The Thang-

Spartan Burpee Test

  • 30 burpees
  • Run 400 meters (that’s one lap for the Toxics in the crowd)
  • Repeat until 25:00 is up
  • This is modified from the official Spartan test which is 4 circuits for time

Cool-down: bear crawl 40 meters; sprint 40 meters; mosey toward home


We choose courage over comfort, seeking out challenges that move us past what the mind thinks is possible.
