The Thang:

Time to mosey over towards the veterans memorial to make use of the picnic shelter. 11s. Dips and Mericans. This one was a burner out of the gate. Mosey again.Took trail to the south end of park toward Woodland Way. Found an above ground portion of city sewer line to provide a derkin station. 25 OYO. Mosey again, over the bridge and back north to the monkey bars conveniently along the trail.The ain’t your usual monkey bars though. Stacked close together and the damn thing pivots/swings as your body weight shifts from bar to bar. A lot harder than it looks. Mosey some more to the old amphitheatre. Then Joe Hendrix up these monster steps, broad jump back down. Lunges back up for 2nd circuit. Broad jump back down. Then broad jump up and back down one more time just for good measure. Mosey to the bridge at veterans memorial. The mission was given to the PAX at this time. Make your way to the Liberty suspension bridge. Go to half way across the Liberty bridge then turn around to return to the Shovel Flag. Keep track of how many bridges you cross over. 10 burpee payment for each bridge crossed (dang tolls). We ran out of time before getting all the way back to the SF. So at COT we decided each man would pay his tolls before the next #NightOps. For the record, it was 10 bridges we crossed on that run. Ugh. We cashed in 10 each at the rendezvous. 90 more to go.

We heard prayers for those near and dear to us. We ask for continued prayers for healing powers for those.

A big thanks to my Anderson peeps for coming up and giving me some camaraderie during their weekend. This was a great post-work-weekend-release for me and great excuse to get my 2.0s and M out in the park to see just what it is we do and love so much. It’s also a great opportunity to get more visual recognition by the community and get them asking “Who are these F3 guys? Marines?” (how dare you cuss at me like that. Marines. Pssht). The afternoons and evenings are devoid of our presence in the local parks and churches we meet at. No more. We can reach the night owls this way. I’m certain of it. Thanks men. See you in the gloom.
