ER visits Granite

  • When: 11/15/16
  • QIC: Cousin Eddie
  • The PAX: Assid, Panda, Band Camp, 2-Ply, Friar, Cousin Eddie


As I ride off into the AO Q @ ER sunset, I wanted to spread the ER love. Only a few folk from Granite have posted there and 3 of the ones that have – Udder Butter (still one of my favorite nicknames in all of F3 nation), Banjo and Twig – were out of town so I figured I’d bring the ER to the rest.  Sorry, Friar you get the worst of both worlds since you’re an ER regular.  Same workout that we did at Espresso a few weeks ago. Still pretty much sucked.

Weather: without Powder or Tooth Fairy around, it’s hard to tell. Typically with them it’s w/ 1 layer = 50 degrees, 2 layers = 40 degrees, 3 layers = 30 degrees…you get the picture

Thang:
Just like at ER – no warmups #thisaintcurves

……all the way down to 1 merkin, 1 LBC

If my math is right, that’s 410 total merkins & LBC’s and lots of running.

WOD:  excerpt from Wild at Heart.  Great read – highly recommended read for all.

Public Private Notes To Self: 

  • check batteries on flashlight the night before
  • bad thing about Google maps is that it doesn’t always show tall fences w/ barbed wire that block access roads
  • 40 stops in 45 minutes is a lot.  Less running next time.
  • Men of Granite have some great nicknames (ie: 2-Ply).  Keep up the good work.  Need to find out the backstory for Panda.  Is he a secret ninja?  Does he chew on bamboo all day?  Either way it sounds like he needs to learn Spanish.  Or at least that’s what I gather from a discussion that I overheard.
  • Men of Granite are tough – not a single pax was slow
    • or maybe I’m super slow and they were all waiting on me?  Either way, they are tough dudes.
  • Band Camp, you pulled what we call a Retread in Hickory.  Came in on 2 wheels at 5:32.  Retread has never done a single SSH in the history of his posting.  Et tu Brut?
  •   Been wondering for a long time about the back story for the spelling of Assid.  Still wondering…
  • Traffic was pretty light today.  I only thought I was going to get run over once and that was after the workout.

Until next time.  Cousin Ed out.
