The Thang: 

We traveled around 4th of July Park. The plan was for lots of variety. We usually went “offroad” to travel from point to point, obstacles be damned.

Boggin’ deep in my jeep

Stops along the way included the following…

Basketball Court: Pax planks on one side of court, Pax sequentially complete traveling Balls to the Wall on fence, Plank for the six.

Park entrance at Mountain Street, by flagpole: 

  • Rosalita Whip each time you hear the phrase “whip it” (Devo). About mid-way, Mad Max asked “how long is this song gonna be”? Therefore I delegated the next task to Mad Max…
  • Mad Max led us in the Pledge of Allegiance. He is a Boy Scout, and knows how to do these sorts of things

Mad Max already growing impatient with the long songs.

Lunges to YHC’s car

Path by the dog park: Catch me if you can.

  • Partner 1 backpedals
  • Partner 2 does a burpee and then runs to catch P1, then switch

Pacer led the Pax on catch me if you can…

Newsflash: Pacer is fast!

Corner of Main and Bodenhamer: Lucky Charms knew exactly why we were stopping there. He called it. Monkey Humpers x20IC. Lot’s of traffic. One car literally stopped and turned down their stereo to get the full sight/sound experience. We developed our own hashtags that are trending on twitter as YHC types this backblast #showtime #enjoytheview #stoppingtraffic

Epstein went with a different hashtag #20monkeyhumpersistoomany

Traffic and monkey humpers. It looked nothing like this.

  • Partner 2 does Bear Crawl. Switch when P1 returns.
  • P2 cycles through Bear Crawl, Crawl Bear, Crab Walk, Polar Bear (3 bear crawls with a merkin

Took an obscure pathway to our next destination, and Checkbook remarked that we keep going offroad. YHC was glad someone finally noticed.

We don’t need…roads

Bathroom. Partner up.

  • Partner 1: Balls to the Wall.
  • Partner 2: Run to bridge, do 2 Burpees, and return
  • Switch.  Repeat until Omaha called

Somewhere around this point, Checkbook AND Boone’s Farm ran away and did not come back. Some lame excuse about work or family obligations. Pacer was ready to send out a search party.

Boone’s Farm and Checkbook both ran away at a brisk pace

Playground: At the retaining wall, 20 Dips and 20 step ups (10 each leg). Repeat cycle about 3 times until Omaha called.

Sprinkler “narrated” the entire time. He just needs to get his words out…

Sprinkler. Slow down and come up for air.

Amphitheater: Find a bench. 10 Derkins and 20 step ups (10 each leg). Repeat cycle about 3 times until Omaha called.

Chipper in stark contrast to Spinkler…

Chipper. You still with us?

Baseball field: Field of exploding Lt. Dans (credit to Sludge). I asked Mad Max to sandbag a bit, and not to make Cousin Eddie look so bad. Kids these days.

Mad Max was not doing anything special. He’s just the best.

Skate Park: Merkins and Plank Jacks to Africa by Toto. Lots of modification, and lots of wishing for Roooooxxxxxxxanne.
