Mosey to the brick pavilion for cover from the elements, just to be nice.

We had 3 PAX with Ruck and 2 without, Team without after completing merkins took a short lap around building. Team with rucks, hold plank until PAX finished merkins. Needless to say was a good shoulder smoke.

PAX1: 100 x Squats PAX2: Aligator Merkins* (did not see this one in lexicon either) x 15

PAX1: 150 x Step ups PAX2: Derkins x 15
PAX1: Wall Squats hold for 3.5mins : Ranger Merkins (a.k.a Military Merkins) x 15

No Time for Mary.

Prayer requests I missed and those unspoken.

Despite the confusion in the beginning chest pump was felt by all. Thanks brothers for enduring the weather, and to quote Uncle Remus “Great day for a Matinee!”

Later Days!
