It’s getting hot… so why not do one of the most grueling KesselRun events there is… The Billy Goat!
YHC created this beast three years ago in remembrance of my dad, Bill, who passed unexpectedly on Memorial Day 2016. I had just joined F3 around then and I find myself just as thankful for my brothers today as I was back then. Especially grateful for the 5 that joined the fastholes and attacked the mountain together.
Disclaimer given and off we go…
.5 mi warm up loop
The Thang (The Billy GOAT):
- Start at foot of the Elmo Acosta Bridge (Ramp closest to the Skyway)
- Run to the top / Slap the metal pole / Come back down the way you came
- 10 Merkins and 20 LBCs at the base
- Repeat for 30 min
- Whoever completes the most gets the illustrious title of The Billy GOAT
Cool down .5 mi with a bonus run to the top of the Main St bridge… because we thought we saw Gecko rucking, but we weren’t so lucky
YHC did bring home the Billy Goat title today with 5 rounds but that is a far cry from the display that Drone put on during the last running where he knocked out 6.5 rounds, passing BigBird in the last 10 min and crushing his spirit like a ripe tomato; which we enjoyably reflected upon as we trudged around this morning.
PAX: PoleDancer, Jumanji, Bowzer, and PUD
Clydesdales: Snuffy, Dr Okie, and Flounder
Rucking; Gecko… and some other dude pretending to be Gecko.
