As I was preparing to write this I got the news of Darth Visor’s passing. He was at my first beatdown at the Rubicon over three years ago. After the beatdown, I remember thinking man he’s a nut! Whether it was the mumble chatter or the crazy ideas for beatdowns Darth always had a smile on his face. He was always up for coffetria or a social. He always made everyone feel welcome. Darth, we will miss you.
Decided to head off campus this morning and head over to Burn’s old stomping grounds (the Saint Francis campus). The Pax made their way through campus stopping for a few different warmup exercises. Side Straddle Hops, Weed Pickers, Hill Billies, and Merkins. After the Pax made their way across campus we stumbled upon some tractor tires.
Partner up: One pax flips the tractor tire on the side of the practice football field and the other runs to the other side and back. Alternate flipping and running between partners.
Then as a group lift the tire for some partner presses and partner squats.
Next up flip the tire back to the beginning. One partner runs while the other flips. After returning the tires back to where they started the pax was headed back to the flag. A few stops for some lunges and merkins. Back to the flag, we had some time for a half of a round of mucho chesto.
COT: Prayers for safe travels for Burns’ Mom and Grandmother as they drive back from Pennsylvania. Prayers for Callahan’s M and his 2.0 as they are going through some growing pains.
Prayers for Darth Visor, Crack, and the Big Creek Crew. You never know when your time will be called. Prepare for the future but live for today.
