This morning’s festivities all began with an email from Sacked in August calling some of #Natville’s Sugar Rays to step up, join the fray at Cornwallis’ Nightmare and be on-point as Q. Humbled to be on his request list (although I still claim he emailed me by accident!), I jumped at the opportunity. CN is the #MuthaShip of F3 Greensboro after all. After months of mission work helping #PlantServeGrow #F3GSO at Rainbow Dash, I was pumped to go back “home”.
7:00AM on the nose, YHC checked to see if any FNG’s were in attendance. No newbies, just 28 of F3Greensboro’s finest in tow so I took a moment to (re-)introduce myself, remind the PAX briefly of F3’s mission and enthusiastically (from what I’m told) welcome everyone to the #1stF.
We were off on a mosey to the Graveyard. On the way, I believe YHQ was accused of partaking in more than one #DoubleEspresso to get amped for our efforts. PED’s may have even been whispered…..Not true – just pumped to be with the PAX and hoping to lead well with a worthy #beatdown.
As the PAX gathered for our Graveyard Warmarama, YHC realized no disclaimer was given so I reminded all men the “Six” is NEVER left behind. On your own, but PUSH as much as you can: Goal = HIM’s devoted to Acceleration.

Much welcomed #MumbleChatter throughout the WAR – good to be home.
With a fair amount of warmth moving through the body, we were ready to head out for the morning’s work.
PAX Double applesauce’d our way to Park Gate. (Yes Snookie, we do have to mosey some…..)
From the gate, we formed several lines shoulder to shoulder across the park road to follow YHC’s lead on:
Karaoke (each direction)
A-Skips to finish to the 3-Way Stop
A short mosey down to the right brought us half way down the park road hill for an intro to:
The Thang! 1000 Reps to Ripped (or Ripper for those already Sugar Ray’d like Daphne!)
PAX counted off in 3’s in order to split up at the stations. YHC is a believer in team workouts, so Sugar Rays were encouraged to stay with their group and perform more reps if/as necessary. The reps and stations can be attacked as Captain’s choice – ie. divide the reps in smaller chunks and rotate through the stations multiple times, etc. Goal is still for each man to complete all reps at each station.
Station 1 On Hill/On Road
1. SSH x 300
2. Air Squared x 200
3. Wojo Squats x 100
Station 2 Across Footbridge to Park Road
4. Merkins x 100
5. Lt. Dans x 100 #excuseme?
6. Stationary Bear Crawl x 50 #PAXexcited
Station 3 Shelter
7. Carolina Drydocks x 50
8. Lunges x 50 (yes each leg)
9. Burpees x 50 #Seriously!
Yes – this definitely looked good on paper. Actual execution of the workout a bit harder. No Xerox, I did not think this one up on a plane at altitude and low on oxygen. But I might have to stop reading magazines with crazy workout ideas. Quite a bit of #MumbleChatter from station to station and indications of real #CrowdPleaser quantities on the reps. As someone once said, set your goals so high that even if you don’t reach them, you still made it a long way and accomplished more than most (Chips liberal paraphrase!). With that in mind – well done. I believe most groups made it at least 2/3 of the of the way (if not more) through the reps.
Time quickly passed by as we were having so, so much fun. A slow mosey in two lines brought us back to the gate for a little more Double Applesauce until some bold PAX member called a jailbreak – not YHC I assure you – Q smoked.
