The BackBlast:


Always a great morning when you get to start it out with the three F’s! Great attitudes! Great weather! Great turnout! including 1 and a half FNGs. Even our benevolent Nantan pulled a fast one to inspire leadership among the PAX. A brilliant move and YHC welcomes the push to become a better man by co-VQing*.

Big welcome to Helen of Troy for taking the plunge. We always welcome new FNGs and are excited to get you know you better!

Big shout out to Googan’s 2.0, Eloise, for showing up and showing us proper form!


With Go Blue! as our Q (got a ring to it), we got things started.

  • SSH: (20 IC)
  • Sun Gods: (10 IC)
  • Merkins: (15 IC)
  • String Ripper: (15 IC)
  • Toy Soldiers: (15 IC)
  • Butt Kickers (15 IC)


The Thang:

Next Fast Times took the helm.

It all started with a 1 minutes free-for-all merkin fest. The proper Merkin form was taught and every man produced as many Merkins they could.

Next, Murphy style relays. Everyone paired up and debt of 100 Merkins, 200 sit-ups and 300 squats was owed. One partner** ran across the length of the field (and did 5 burpees) while the other partner hammered out the debt. Math was an unexpected challenge but the debt was finished in great fashion with PAX squat circle. Good teamwork fellas!


YHC  (Ditka) finished beatdown with a quick 6 Minutes of Mary.

  • LBC (20 IC)
  • Boxcutters (15 IC)
  • LSF (11 IC)
  • American Hammer (15 IC)


Short Circuit dispensed 5 Burpees (he just can’t go an AO without it) for Q not being adequately prepared. Name-O-Rama was had and our FNG was officially named Helen of Troy! (don’t worry about the name, only the progress we’ll share together) Welcome Brother! Hope to see you back!

Continued prayer for Go Blue’s 2.2 Ella!

Googan lead us out with prayer and a great Coffeeteria was had***.

Naked Man Moleskin:

  • * Pulling the old bait-and-switch “I’ll be gone someone has to cover for me”… Classic
  • ** Ellie Mae AKA a damn good partner
  • *** teaser-trailer… Sounds like a new trail running AO is in the works. Googan we’re all looking forward to it! Also say hello to your new Abduction site-Q, yours truly, Ditka! AKA “The Assistant to The Naantan’s Mothership” or TATNM (is this even allowed…?).
