The Thang

This CoP was a prelude to …

Line up for a B.O.M.B.S away (H-Bomb FNG’d at the Yard, how appropriate – his first exercise Bataan Death March – learned not to carry car in pocket as forced to hold up shorts while running to catch the PAX, not fun in the June heat for first workout in a year – we all start somewhere, and look where we have come)

  • B – 50 PC Burpees
  • O – 100 PC Overhead Clap (Ray Lewis)
  • M – 150 PC Merkins
  • B – 50 PC Box Jumps (Knee Tucks – supposed to be BBSU, wait I’m the Q, I can do whate…)
  • S – 50 PC Squats

Plank for the 6

Reduced the count on BOMBS to give time for “The Game” – instructions divvied out and PAX engaged for 8 minutes … had to be there

Recovery Mosey to Toyota Center

Ended with Circle of SSH

  • 18 IC Clockwise (while QIC rotated counter-clockwise, why? ’cause I’m the Q – plus I forgot)
  • 18 IC Counterclockwise

Good work Men!  PAX huffed their pleasure with a BD well done!

CountORama and NameORama

17 PAX + 0 FNGs


I am asking the AO QIC to close out the COT.  No TAPs iterated, but Dugger gave insightful words of unity as we go through another election and how important it is to show compassion and dignity to all those around us, regardless of their political position.  Fireball took us out to re-iterate the sentiment, and asked we inspire ourselves to do more from the strength and effort shown by our fellow PAX give, and spread that strength to those around us.  Duggar and Fireball very well said!


The Yard has always been my second home, it’s the place my F3 journey began.  Although I had not interacted with a few new faces, the sentiment is the same will all my fellow PAX, we all tow the same line.  I am 1/3 of the way through this journey, and it has been more than I expected.  Onto the Marathon (my AO for M/W, except those are my fartsack days, not tomorrow!)  Mt. Olympus will be mounted!  SYITG!
