  • The PAX: McDreamy(respect), O'Steen, Yard Sale, Inside Out, Bouchey(sp...respect), Mr. Yuck, Airbags(respect), Squeege(respect), Gravy (down 12.7lbs!!!), Zamboni (respect), Outhouse

YHC has many an excuse for this late post…laziness, business and forgetfulness!!! The real reason however, accept it or not… is an issue with my router at home then an issue with my F3 password! But I digress… there really is NO excuses!  So accept this blast from the past!

11 Pax gathered in the gloom on a rather pleasant morning in the Badlands!  Humidity was down and enthusiasm was up!

I guess Zamboni and Gravy’s alarm clock was not working properly or the tug of the fartsack was especially strong on this morning and both caused the Pax to begin with 15 Burpees for good measure!

Warm Up

SSH – 15 in cadence

Michael Phelps – 15 in cadence

Mountain climbers – 15 in cadence

Hillbillies – 15 in cadence

Moroccan Night Clubs – 15 in cadence

Chinooks – 15 in cadence

The Thang

Mosey to football field parking lot with variety of motions

ATM’s  – 20 – Alternating shoulders

15 – tempo merkins

15 – fast merkins

Mosey to football field  (find a partner)

Each group will complete 100 merkins, 200 LBC’s, and 300 squats.  While one PAX is doing exercise, the other PAX completes Doracides – sprint to cone 1 burpee, sprint back, sprint to next cone 2 burpees sprint back, sprint to third cone 3 burpees sprint back.  Change places with partner keeping up with reps.  When done plank and plank jack alternating.

Then we gathered in a circle for a little game of chance.  Each Pax took a turn rolling the dice and then following with whatever exercise the dice came up (I believe the dice is weighted toward burpees…).  when completed we took a mosey back to the flagpole, wagon-wheeling to allow Gravy the chance to lead us to the flag!  Nicely done gents!

As we were catching our breath I shared this story of humor but also a reminder of why we need to have a higher power in our life…

An atheist was walking through the woods. “What majestic trees! What powerful rivers! What beautiful animals!” he said to himself.

As he was walking alongside the river, he heard a rustling in the bushes behind him.

He turned to look. He saw a 7-foot grizzly bear charge towards him. He ran as fast as he could up the path. He looked over his shoulder and saw that the bear was closing in on him.

He looked over his shoulder again, and the bear was even closer.

He tripped and fell on the ground. He rolled over to pick himself up but saw that the bear was right on top of him,reaching for him with his left paw and raising his right paw to strike him.

At that instant the Atheist cried out, “Oh my God!”

Time stopped. The bear froze. The forest was silent.

As a bright light shone upon the man, a voice came out of the sky.

“You deny my existence for all these years, teach others I don’t exist and even credit creation to cosmic accident.”

“Do you expect me to help you out of this predicament? Am I to count you as a believer?”

The atheist looked directly into the light, “It would be hypocritical of me to suddenly ask you to treat me as a Christian now, but perhaps you could make the BEAR a Christian?”

“Very well,” said the voice.

The light went out. The sounds of the forest resumed.

And the bear dropped his right paw, brought both paws together, bowed his head and spoke:

“Lord bless this food, which I am about to receive from thy bounty through Christ our Lord, Amen.”
