YHC arrived early at AP to set things up, which involved posting some stuff in the Echo Chamber and setting up the lights in the corners. Crabcakes indicated that he was intimidated (or maybe scared a little) by the lights being placed down there, but all complaints were cut off at 5.15. With 5 experienced pax in attendance, the core principles and disclaimer were recited at such a half-assed level that even Ripken would have been impressed. Unfortunately this also left us additional time at the end (more on that later).

With that the mozi started at approximately 5:15;10, but we got in 3 laps with the usual stuff: butt kickers, carioca x2, nur, high knees and toy soldiers (not necessarily in the order). Then on to the Echo Chamber for the COP with SSH, windmills, strawberry pickers, hillbilly walkers, agitators, Michael Phelps, American Hammers and arm circles (again, not in that order – as you can tell, the mozi and the COP, like the disclaimer, were also half-assed).

Next on to the main event, the latest installment of 4 corners. Each corner of the rink had a sheet of paper with 5 rounds of exercises and a mode of transportation to get to the next corner. Exercise for one minute until the timer tells you to stop, then you have 30 seconds to get the next corner. That made for 5 rounds of fun or something like it. Here’s what we had:

Corner 1: Flutter kicks, big boy situps, Freddie Mercury, Hello Dolly, box cutters, suicide to Corner 2

Corner 2: Lunges, salsa dips, leg raises, calf raises, monkey humpers, bear crawl to Corner 3

Corner 3: Merkins, shoulder taps, drydocks, mountain climbers, moroccan nightclubs, side shuffle to Corner 4

Corner 4: Hillbilly walkers, SSH, imperial walkers, overhead claps, mountain mans, crab walk to Corner 1

We only had 5 pax but the mumble chatter to pax ratio was strong, and sometimes disturbing. Goob kept saying “hello” during the Hello Dollys, apparently under the impression that Dolly was somewhere nearby. No one asked too many questions, which was better for everyone. Somehow Marilyn Manson entered the conversation at one point. And we learned not to take Valentine’s Day advice from Crabcakes (although he seems to have an excellent business idea). As you could imagine, “that’s what she said” was thrown out way too many times.

We wrapped up the 4 corners a few minutes before 6.00, leading to a round of Mary. Posh called for burpees, and this isn’t the first time it’s happened which leads me to believe that he’s in some sort of power struggle with Chili. What made it worse this time is that he thought it would be a good idea to do them in cadence. It wasn’t. Everything after that is a blur but luckily YHC was conscious enough to stop everything at 6.00.


  • Races, races and more races.
  • No more Heritage Harbor on Thursdays (you can still go there on Tuesdays) – everyone in that part of the region who wants to go on Thursday, go to Fort Hamer, where you get to run and take part in other mumble chatter which isn’t always less disturbing (one of last week’s topics: Gwar)
  • Grow ruck is in May. Sign up based on your own tolerance for stupidity.

Prayers & praises were sent out by a number of pax.

Always an honor to lead and a good time with all of the nonsense.

Manziel out.
