YHC completely forgot he was on the Q-sheet until the day before… but thankfully there was an ‘ace in the sleeve’. A quick text to Lexi from F3 Cherokee later, the beatdown was in the works…
As we gathered together before before the call-time, Ace conveniently referenced Clubber Lang from Rocky 3: “What’s your prediction for the fight? Pain!”
With the normal group + Lexi who dropped in from F3 Cherokee in tow, on queue we commenced the 90s hip-hop playlist and mosey’d to the normal spot.
After the standard disclaimer, we started the work.
15-ish Side Straddle Hops
15 Copperhead Squats
15 Moroccan Night Clubs
15 Willie Mays Hays
15 Weed Pickers
We then mosey’d to the upper soccer field, and began the Spartan Beatdown:
PAX line up and sprint 100 yards. Do 10 merkins at the finish and walk back to the start all together. Q starts each sprint race with a verbal call. Continue until you have done 30 x100 yard sprints and 10×30 = 300 Merkins, or time runs out.
Time ran out and we finished with 15 100-yard sprints + 150 merkins.
Death came, quads were a-burnin’, and everyone was in a daze. Glory!
After the count-off, we circled-up and shared prayer requests & announcements. Thanks went up for Ace’s mother (successful surgery) and prayers for Lightweight’s search for new talent. Also, a quick announcement around Santa Ruck in December.
Special shout-out for Lexi for the beatdown, and for making the drive to post at Firehouse.
