  • An exciting morning at #BearCountry with 8 PAX. We welcomed two new PAX to the group. The long awaited first bell (First bell: That which rings in the Super Unknown when a Sad Clown makes his FNG Post) of Brian Haggerty (Clifford). B.I. Mansour (B-Team) posted for the first time in Hampton Roads after moving to the area from Greenville, NC. He had posted previously in Roanoke, VA. The post-workout Bible study started today and will be Q’d by SpaceMonkey over the next 13 weeks. He planned this workout, but since he is on the DL, YHC Q’d. This is YHC’s first time Q’ing someone else’s workout. Here is out it went.


    The Thang:

    Warmarama: Side straddle hops x30 In Cadence (IC), Shoulder circles x10 forward and back (IC), Merkins x15 on my count (OMC), Yankee aggressor ~30s, Southern gentlemen ~30s

    Mosey to center of practice field

    11s with Carolina dry docks at the center and crunchy frogs on the outside. Always, 12 lunges from center out and sprint back after crunchy frogs. PAX were divided into four pairs. Each pair lunged out in separate directions to form the shape of cross.

    10 count, FEBA

    In same pairs, complete DORA of 100 Merkins, 200 squats, and 300 little baby crunches (LBCs) with the run to the goal posts.

    Mosey back to flags

    Mary: Captain Thor and ring of fire with flutter kicks and hold 6 inches


    Circle of Trust (COT):

    Counterama and Name-O-Rama

    SpaceMonkey led the COT with an introduction of the topic to be covered in the subsequent bible study, Take up your Cross …

    Matthew 16:24-26 (NASB): 24 Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me. 25 For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. 26 For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?



    Next week is VQ week. Let those second bells ring (Second bell: That which rings in the Super Unknown when a PAX makes his VQ). We still need someone to sign up for Thursday (

    Sunday is the tough mudder half. According to 3 for 1 yesterday, the Groupon is still up for the discounted price if any PAX want to join. We will be taking a clown car up there together.

    Pray for SpaceMonkey. Today is the MRI (
