10 Cherry Pickers with a Back clap IC

Pit Boss and Humpty Dumpty were running late so we ran a Capri Lap

The Thang

Our two late PAX were still missing, but we proceeded to the Thang anyway.

We did a DORA.  While one PAX ran to the end of the parking lot and back, the other worked through the set of exercises, then they switched.  We did:

  • 100 BBS
  • 200 Alternating Coupon Merkins
  • 300 Squats

Team Bobby Flay/Kraut flew through this and were assigned 50 burpees while the rest of us finished.

Pit Boss posted at 5:38 and Humpty Dumpty posted at 5:53.


All PAX lined up in the plank position.  Each PAX took a turn running to the middle of the line, doing a burpee, and taking their place at the end of the line.  We did this twice with a lap around the parking lot in between.


Better late than never.  Two PAX were significantly late today.  This was not good.  But it would have been much worse if they had stayed home.  Don’t let a small set back turn into a big set back.  Show up late and face the music.  It will always be better than quitting.
