16 PAX ventured out into the gloom to give Golden Strip one last ride before a new name was assigned to the AO. The limping Yeti, Malibu’s most wanted, and a large aquatic mammal were there…among others. (if you don’t know, you need to show up) With a busy day ahead of us, we wasted no time and got right down to business

Warm Up:
SSH x 20 IC
IW x 15 IC
Windmills X 10 IC

The Thang:
Pax gathered at the North end zone and circled up for a group escalator. In between exercises, PAX were given the choice of running a full length suicide or holding some uncomfortable position (Al Gore, low plank, etc.). Exercises were as follows:

Burpees x 5 IC
Merkins x 10 IC
LBCs x 15 IC
Squats x 20 IC
Flutters X 25 IC

Now that we were up, time to go down. Same as before but in reverse. Stop at the flagpole after the bottom of the escalator for everyone’s favorite time-filler

Captain Thors up to 5×20
Freddie Mercuries x 20 IC

Prayers for Benign and Mrs. Potts friends who are battling cancer
Prayers for Red Rider’s job interview

At the end, we had the task of renaming the AO at which we currently stood (to eliminate confusion since Golden Strip is technically a sub-region of Swamp Rabbit). After several terrible suggestions, we settled on The Terminal, in referencing the School Bus terminal adjacent to our AO. Although it is sad to see the Golden Strip moniker go, which will certainly lead to a decrease in stripper-based jokes, I am personally excited to see the Bus themed jokes and workouts that come of this renaming

As always, it was an honor
