YHC proposed that Blue Hawaii Q the crucible in response to nagging from the Swamp Rabbit twitter handle user. After discovering that Blue would be DR, Houdini turned the tables on YHC and called him out to take the lead. Because he doesn’t like to disappoint the PAX, YHC stepped up and delivered an epic beat down designed to shake things up a bit.
The plan was to limit the running by just absolutely packing the course with PT in a way that YHC thought would give him an advantage. Alas, he still couldn’t keep up with 00 who took the VT by quite a gap, completing 5 laps. YHC took an ever distant second and Weed Wacker gets the bronze.
Flutters before lunge/burpee-broadjump gauntlet were changed to 20 merkins, and merkins after block work were changed to 20 DC flutters.
-Nearly every section of the loop became a test of willpower by the 3rd round. YHC said “GO!” and cranked out his first set of block work and took off to gain an early lead for the first 2 rounds, succumbing to the machine known as 00 at the end of the 2nd. He continued to put ground between himself and YHC in spite of his body’s desire to spill merlot and faint, which YHC is almost certain he was experiencing.
-00 caught up with Zoila and Houdini on the 5th round, as they had stopped to enjoy some “2nd F”. He joined the group as they watched YHC traverse the lunge/burpee-broadjump gauntlet in a way that must have looked like a new-born foal taking its first steps.
-YHC had stated that since the PAX were so close to Starbucks, they would go until 6:10. As daybreak seemed like it would never come, YHC began to have second thoughts about this and started asking about the time when he returned to the blocks for a 6th time. 00 agreed that YHC should call time at 6:04 while probably thinking the same thing as YHC: “Please Make it Stop!”
-Tclaps to Houdini for coming up with one of the best names YHC has ever heard: The Puppy Who Lost His Way (dude’s a children’s book writer and illustrator). YHC loves Adam Sandler references, especially from movies in the AS cannon.
-Prayers for GCOD as he and his wife are battling some issues with adoption
-Prayers for the Fenske brothers’ parents (Princess Aurora and The Puppy Who Lost His Way) and Puppy’s father in law as they are dealing with health issues.
-Terrible Q, but epic none-the-least. Tclaps to all of the PAX, ’cause they all brought it.
