YHC called for coupons. When arriving to Hospital Hill, the terrain was frozen Tundra…like walking on Mars. Time for plan B…actually plan C.


Jump around and look like an idiot as Hasselhoff takes his time getting out of his car. Run to the HEATED stairs outside of the Van Andel Research Institute. But first, stop at some benches for:

20 Incline Merkins (IC)

The Thang:

Once at the bottom of the stairway, partner up. YHC then wonders out loud… Do you think we could do 1,000 BBS? Well, let’s find out.

In a DORA fashion, partner 1 runs up and down stairway while partner 2 completes the following:

Round 1 – 100 BBS
Round 2 – 100 BBS
Round 3 – 200 Rowers (WWI sit-up while bringing feet to chest)

Circle up for more pain:

  • 20 BBS (IC)
  • 50 Flutter Kicks (IC)
  • 20 LBC (IC)
  • 20 American Hammers (IC)

We ran back to the AO, on the final stretch, YHC yells for – All You Got – back to the AO. Bart Simpson takes off like a ‘bat out of hell’ when a large pickup truck decides to roll through a stop sign almost ending Bart Simpson’s life. It was a close one…

Moo Mother F’ers,
