June 18, 2021//Kiewit Middle School//AO-The Combine//75 balmy degrees//
15 Pax: Sparty, Beaver, 2 Step, Splinter, Gator, Moon Man, 2nd Chance, Skipper, Grillz, Blades of Glory, Thor, Chucky, Happy Camper, Brad Pitt, and Folsom.
The PAX gathered just outside the track. Folsom greeted the PAX with “Countdown to Armageddon, by Public Enemy. (It’s basically an air raid siren with Flavor talking about the revolution, it always gets me pumped. The mission statement was made, the 5 core principles were stated, the disclaimer was made, and then Folsom sent the PAX for a mosey along 156th St. to the south. About ¼ mile into the mosey we stopped to warm up.
Warm O’ Rama (7 minutes)
- Tappy Taps ICx10
- Hill Billy Squats ICx15
- Cherry Pickers ICx20
- Alt. Should Taps ICx15
- Downward Dog to Howling Wolf, about 5 times
The mosey continued for a long ¼ mile to Cottonwood Elementary School, the home of That Fucking Hill! You’re welcome for finding it, PAX, I hope the Combine continues to use it, it’s a mother fucker. We started with 10 Jungle Boi Squats, 2 Spoonz Style, ran up the hill for 1 Merkin, then back down. Everyone got all the way through this, finishing with 1 Jungle Boi and 10 Merkins. Rather than rinse and repeat, Folsom showed mercy on the legs of the PAX and started round 2 with 10 Big Boy Sit Ups, and 1 Alt. Shoulder Tap IC. Guys got mostly through this before Omaha was called. The mosey back to the Shovelflag was shorted this way, but proved much more difficult for Folsom. As Folsom was the six, Brad Pitt, down range from Georgia, was kind enough to lead the PAX into Mary while Folsom caught up.

COT: Today I gave a brief book report on Younger Next Year. A book written by a doctor and his star patient about how exercise literally reverses aging. So nice of 65 year old Brad Pitt to demonstrate this fact by kicking all of our younger asses today. I was drawn to the book because it is mentioned by name in Freed to Lead and I know at least TC has read it already. I have been amazed by all the parallels between it and Freed to Lead. Basically, Freed, is the nutshell version, while Younger is the in depth look at the science behind why Fitness, Fellowship, and Faith are so important to living a happy, healthy, and long life. Just like Freed, everyone should read Younger Next Year.
