  • The PAX: Big Bird, Crotchless, Drumstick, Feud

(The following is to be read with your best Vincent Price Thriller voice) 

There was pre-dawn darkness across the land

the 7:00 hour was close at hand,

with one particular (Big Bird) Pax running in search of donations,

in order to aid the F3 Foundation.

And who should be running by his side,

why it was Crotchless matching BB stride for stride.

Making sure that they were not outdone,

Drumstick and Feud joined Big Bird for the exercise challenges, just for fun.


While Bird and Crotchless were on their run,

Drumstick and Feud had Halloween fun.

Pulling exercises from the candy bowl,

And then using cinderblocks when they were told.


And though we were there to cheer him on,

Bird’s stomach told the escalating peppers, “I’m the keeper!”

However, we all wondered if this High Impact Man’s body could resist,

The explosive heat of the Carolina Reaper….

Hahahahahaha, Hahahahaha!  Hahahahaha!

The Thang

As mentioned above, Big Bird took on the Give-2-Give, Deuces R’ Wild Challenge.  Crotchless committed to be his wingman for the runs as well as his proctor and videographer.  YHC had the Q and took his fellow PAX member Drumstick trick or treating around the block.  Both would join BB after each mile to do the exercise challenge portions of the challenge.  All 4 PAX joined Big Bird on his 5th and final mile.

  • Trick or Treating- borrowed and enhanced from a couple of LIFO Halloween beatdowns (YHC thinks this may be one of LIFO’s favorite holidays- must be the free candy). Candy bowl placed between the two PAX. Each took turns pulling exercises from the bowl and then performing said exercises.  After 6 picks, Pax traversed (via murder bunny hop (what did you expect on Halloween?) in a counterclockwise direction to the opposite side of the bowl, then restart the picking.   Exercises in the candy bowl (exercises picked in bold):
    • 5 Blockees  
    • 31 picker’s choice (Freddy Mercury’s)
    • 31 Merkins
    • 31 Big Boy situps with block
    • 31 American Hammers with block (count one side)
    • 31 Monkey humpers
    • 31 LBC
    • 31 curls for the girls
    • 31 squat thrusters
    • 31 Mountain Climbers
    • 31 seconds plank
    • 31 seconds air chair
    • 31 flutter kicks with block overhead
    • 31 hello dollies with block overhead
    • 31 scorpion drydocks (picked twice)
    • 31 diamond merkins
    • 31 birth canals (picked twice)
    • 31 hand release merkins
    • 31 pull ups
    • 31 wonderbra
  • Deuces R’ Wild Challenge- essentially, run a mile, consume a teaspoon amount of progressively hotter peppers, perform a challenge exercise.
    • 1st Challenge: Red Bell Peppers + the Steinl
    • 2nd Challenge: Jalapeno + Captain Therkin (10 rounds)
    • 3rd Challenge: Serrano + Burpees x20
    • 4th Challenge: Habanero + 1-minute Balls to the Wall
    • 5th Challenge: Carolina Reaper + 1-minute Wall Sit


T-claps goes out to Big Bird from following through on his commitment to this challenge.  There were new expressions on this HIM’s face, some that were concerning, following the completion of the 5th and final challenge.  (Watch the video… Big Bird and the Deuces R’ Wild Challenge.  But he survived.  Medic (Crotchless) retrieved milk and bread for our hero to help subside the aftereffects of the Carolina Reaper.  At coffeeteria, 3 more donors contributed to the F3 Foundation Give2Give Campaign.
