Gas Works, something smells! 7/28

The Pax (6), Icky, Gekko, Journey, Waxie, Hurley and Bangkok (Q).

The Thang:

Mozie to grassy Knoll, 10 Berpie, run to other side 20 merkin, run to other side, 30 Sumo, run to other side, 40 WWI.

Mozie to deck at the maritime academy.  10 Berpie, 20 Incline merkin, 30 decline merkin, 40 dips. Mozie to large wall in parking lot. 60 seconds of XXX balls to the wall.

Mozie back to GW and gravel area between the water and the grass, 10 berpie mid way OYO.

I had made a bench on the water before the W/O to use for Incline M, Decline M and Dips. we meet at this spot (not used).

We split into 2 groups of 3. one group stays at this spot and does a W/O the other team calls out  (AMRAP) as the other group runs to a point, does 10 sumo and returns.

WW1’s, squats, planks, then it gets smelly! LBC’s  are called out and Gekko lays down in a fresh pile of dog dung! All over his back, shorts and arm! Faced with this situation and the smell, Gekko jumps into lake and does his best impression of being in a washing machine! After the deep clean the W/O continues. Flutters, protractor and sumo squats.

Next is four corners of 10/20/30/40 sumo squats, repeated with WW1″s

We mozie to the whale vertebra and a do bear crawl ladder with increasing Carolina dry docks at each vertebra to the end (9).  turn around and do it again!

Now to the bottom of the hill and its Dora 1/2/3 time. Two groups doing 100 merkins, 200 WW1 and 300 sumo squats. The individuals not doing the exercise run half way up the hill, touch the bench and return to contribute to knocking out the tasks.

Mozie to the concrete pad, 10,20,30’s of step ups,

To the top of the hill we go.

25 side straddle hops, DONE!


The events that  were described by Danny Stokes (AKA – F3 Linus) the previous Monday W/O touched me deeply. I Just met this gentleman, worked out with him for 45 minutes and then find out the pain he is in, the extraordinary experience he just had and the undertaking he is attacking. The prayer that AP facilitated after Danny’s story drove home the palpable F3 bond and brotherhood we are a part of.



MOHI 8/2

PAX 1. Bangkok (Q)

Standing  alone in front of MOHI at 5:30, I was at a cross roads. Do I continue with my original W/O plan of the Millennial?  I would have to do every exercise to the full 100 and I have nobody to push me. Screw it,

The Thang: The Personal Millennial (TPM ),  100 of 10 exercises, after the completion of each exercise, run around the museum.  1000 exercises activities, 10 times around the museum.

1st exercise is the side straddle hop.

2nd. The merkin

3rd Sumo squat

4th Incline merkin

5th LBC

6th decline merkin

7th step ups

8th dips

9th WW1’s

At the completion of my WW1″s and  (they killed me, i used the large dock cleats to lock my feet to the ground) I looked at my watch for the first time. It was 6:15 on the button. I knew I could not complete 100 berpies in short order to complete the Millennial, so I ran around the building and completed the

10th exercise, The Russian hammer

last run around the building, the end.

Time. 6:21, 51 minutes.

WOW, I can not believe I just did that, 7 months ago I could not do 5 sit ups! I need a Beer!
