The BackBlast:


YHC was both looking forward to a nice moseyed 5k Turkey Trot, while simultaneously dreading said 5k Turkey Trot, given the previous 12 mile Ruck he put in the day before. Nevertheless, the show must go on; and go on it did. With a temp in the mid 20’s, YHC made quick work of the disclaimer before jumping right in.


  • SSH x 20 (IC)
  • Windmill x 10 (IC)
  • String Ripper x 15 (IC)
  • Merkins x 10 (IC)

The Thang:

Simple: 5k. Easy pace, with a focus on fellowship and encouragement…. oh and also some PT thrown in.

  • After Mile One
    • 10 Hand-Release Merkin
    • 10 Wojo Squat
    • 15 Rower
    • 5 Burpee
  • After Mile Two
    • 10 Catalina Wine-Mixer Merkin
    • 10 Bobby Hurley

By this point, many of us had varying distances, ultimately averaging out to 3.1 miles, so YHC called it sufficient, and we circled for…

  • Box Cutter x 10 (IC)
  • LBC x 20 (IC)

  • 2021 New Years Beatdown information incoming; be on the lookout. Solid workout followed by a “State of the Region” discussion.
  • Praises for Flo’s nephew Milo Joshua Wass (sp?). Prayers for the family as they adjust to a new baby.

Naked Man Moleskin:

  • YHC mistakenly (muscle memory) offered up a coffeeteria after the beatdown at Gibbs. However, was quickly reminded by PAX (thank you) that with businesses shut down, we shouldn’t attempt to converge at once onto businesses that can’t host indoor/outdoor seating. Coffeeteria’s still on hold until further notice.

It was an honor and a privilege to lead you men this morning. Keep getting after it!
