The Thang

As Many Murphs As Possible: The PAX worked together to complete as many Murphs (100 Pull-Ups, 200 Merkins, 300 Squats) as possible as a group. Each PAX was assigned a specific station and once the running PAX returned, they handed off the rep count. Due to the number of PAX, two additional stations of Big Boys and Lunges were added but not counted.

Mosey back to the flags via the field/parking lot/tennis courts.


Dealer’s Choice AMRAP: 30 seconds each: Penguin Crunches, Big Boys, 6″x60°, Freddy Mercury, Boxcutters, Crunchy Frogs.

Chilcutt Plank: ~1 minute, until 0615.


Luke 13:6–9[6] And he told this parable: “A man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came seeking fruit on it and found none. [7] And he said to the vinedresser, ‘Look, for three years now I have come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and I find none. Cut it down. Why should it use up the ground?’ [8] And he answered him, ‘Sir, let it alone this year also, until I dig around it and put on manure. [9] Then if it should bear fruit next year, well and good; but if not, you can cut it down.’”

  • YHC has been wrestling with patience for himself and for others in their growth, especially spiritual growth. Then he came across this parable he read before, but didn’t quite understand completely.
  • YHC noted that the tree in the parable was 3 years barren and still patience granted it. He encouraged the PAX to be patient with themselves and others, like Jesus is with his people.


  • YHC signed up to Q primarily to get back on the running horse after his January ankle injury. When no other PAX showed until 0530 on the dot, he briefly hoped he was going to be free to return home to the warmth of his bed.
  • The PAX on the two non-counting stations were primarily responsible for maintaining mumble chatter.
  • The PAX were able to complete approximately 2.76 Murphs collectively; as expected, the Pull-ups were the limiting factor.
  • The original plan was for the PAX to mosey back to the flags the way they came, but the arrival of the fuzz prompted a hurried exit in the other direction.
    • Several PAX noted that when running from the authorities, being the fastest is not necessarily what is important, just not being the slowest.
      • On this note, Wicked went on a riff about how he would make it his goal to be the slowest and then talk his way out of the interaction, with the cop having a lot of pointed questions about how all he saw was a bunch of men running away from a dark place after yelling “SIXTY NINE.”
  • Crunchy Frogs hella hurt (more than usual) after all the other abs for some reason.
