The Thang

Mosey to Grand Rapids Montessori, partner up.
Pax 1 completes 10 4 ct. merkins and 10 imperial walkers, rinse and repeat while Pax 2 attempts to traverse to the far side of the playground without touching the ground (the floor is lava).

T-Claps to Deep Blue and LP for getting the farthest, in their own ways

Mosey to Houseman Field. Toto once told me that he posted in NC and every exercise they did was four count, so in order to be more like NC:

20 4-ct BBS
2 4-ct Hill runs (Up 1, Down 2, Up 3, Down 4, twice)

Ask Big Money whether we should take the steep and immediate hill back to the AO or the long gradual hill – he chose the steep hill so we did that, and then ran down the next steep hill and back up 😀

Mosey to Basic Bro’s apartment

10 4-ct Monkey Humpers

Mosey back to the AO (NOTE: Bart Simpson is fast, but rabbits are faster)




Leaders Message:

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.


Auf Wiedersehen – Kraut
