    The Thang

    422 Reps per round: 422 x 5 = 2110 (Close enough to 2112). PAX partner up and while one PAX performs exercise the other takes a lap around the 4th floor of the Merchant Walk parking garage.

    • Round 1: Curls
    • Round 2: Bench Press
    • Round 3: LBCs
    • Round 4: Overhead Press
    • Round 5: Skull Crushers

    Space Monkey and Gas Station were the only pair to finish within the hour and were deemed the winners. The other PAX were penalized 5 burpees failing to finish.


    “You can choose a ready guide in some celestial voice. If you choose not to decide you still have made a choice” Neil Peart

    Faith is a choice and we must use our spiritual disciplines to grow our faith.


    • 3.3 Miles for Quad P
    • This was a real grind and all of the PAX kept pace.
    • Space Monkey and Average Joe made the trek to Ironclad this morning and it was nice to have some new faces.
    • Counting reps is annoying but still lots of great mumble chatter on the laps around the parking garage.


    • Quap P is ongoing – remember to log your mileage.
    • We are trying to put a team together for the GoRuck Star Course in Richmond late March. Contact Average Joe if you are interested.
    • Early planning stages on a Ragnar event in Virginia Beach. Contact Space Monkey if you are interested in joining a team.
