The bus came by and I got on, that’s when it all began
There was Cowboy Neal at the wheel of the bus to never ever land

Warm Up
Circle up tight.
No, tighter.
No, I’m part of the circle.
Yes, I’m serious.
Plank up in tight circle essentially shoulder to shoulder. Complete one merkin and then remain in plank while moving one step to the left around the circle. Continue merkin/step business until returning to starting point. One revolution was between 15-20 merkins.

Mosey over to Sponge Bob alley (BTW, his movie Sponge Out of Water is way better than 50 Shades of Grey- both recently availble on iTunes, but lacks the awesomeness of the Hoff from his prior feature film). Lunge walk up the alley to the top.

Regroup and head over to Grace Church steps for 11s with Merkins at the bottom and Merkins at the top. Let’s keep it simple and easier for the guys that did Murph the day before. I think EM mutter some choice words about that, but who am I to say…

Mosey up to the Richardson Street garage and run backwards up the first to ramps. Iceman thought we were only doing one and prom nighted this feat. Take the stairs the rest of the way to the top and enjoy the reward of the fresh breeze a top the garage. Dan Taylor up to 5. Somehow, Soup didn’t know about Dan Taylor. HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?!? Also, some of the PAX really struggled with the concept how this worked today. Not sure why, but I think it has something to do with copious amounts of Dos XX yesterday. Finally, Houdini violated everyone’s airspace with some horrendous crop dusting.

20 Squats OYO and run the ramps back down.

25 LBCs at the bottom.

Mosey back past Peace Center to the three tiered Rock Steps.
Joe Hendrix up the stairs while Dini weeps.
Say hello to the 0530 crew. Notice that Handy Manny’s dad is there, but not Handy Manny who had personally HC’ed the day before…
Bunny Hop up the steps.
Notice a solo runner coming our way. Realize its the 6 from the 0530 crew. Help him find his way back to the Pax.

Head back to the shovel flag for Mary.
Flutters 20 IC
Dollys 20 IC

LBCs 20 IC
60 Second Plank
Jacques Cousteau 20 IC

Prayers for Sponge Bob as he looks to free a puppy from a puppy mill. It’s a slippery slope from here and he needs it.
Inspector Gadget is Qing the Main Thang Thursday for his Anniversary Q. Come and support the man who supports so many others. Loads of running. You’ve been warned.

At this point the 0530 crew rolls in again for Mary and we move the conversation to the side. About 2 exercises into their Mary, the 6 comes rolling in solo again. Not to be on a soap box, but try to watch the 6. The appeal of F3 is the comradery and the support as we get stronger and faster. Try to be mindful and have at least 1 person act as sweeper. It can be an easy thing to overlook, but it makes a difference to those struggling to keep up.
