14 men gave up their extra sleep this morning to honor our fallen heroes. The challenge would be the “Murph” named after fallen Navy SEAL Michael P Murphy. We don’t have pullup bars at the Keg so we have to use the rafters of the picnic shelter.

Quickie suggested the challenge but as 0530 hit, no Quickie…?? We warmed up with some SSH, IW, and windmills. About the time we start our run we see the bright lights of Quickie’s SUV.

1 mile run. The figure 8 loop around the footprint of Marathon is exactly 1 mile. Finish at the picnic shelter.

100 pullups

200 pushups

300 squats

To modify we divided the exercises into 10, 20, 30 rep intervals repeated 10 times. Kudos to those who finished!

1 mile run. We made the figure 8 loop backwards back to the flag.


On this Memorial Day we honor all the men and women that paid the ultimate price for our freedom. We don’t know them but we thank them all!!!

Two men would join the boys on the Eastside for a double-down Convergence at the Burbs.
