Moleskin – Beaker was the first to figure out the warmup pattern of burpees increasing by 5. I think I remember him complaining that we didn’t get to go another round and tack on 25 burpees. The side lunge was clearly a fan favorite with much groaning and whining. The mumble chatter did drop rather considerably after the last 2 rounds of burpees. As we jogged to the old shell parking lot, I heard various grumbling such as this isn’t RAM. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the renewed energy level at the AMRAP. Cousin Eddie and yours truly claim that our form was impeccable. At least that is our story and we are sticking to it after getting lapped by Tooth Fairy. On the jog back to the school, Crop and TF picked up the pace as a show of male bravado while getting harassed by the rest of us still slow moseying. The general sentiment at Granny’s was that the PAX begrudgingly appreciated the workout and said they felt they had gotten their money’s worth.
Special prayer for Abraham heading down to Haiti in 2 weeks with fellow brothers from F3 Columbia for what was originally planned as a building trip but has now turned into a disaster relief trip.
