MOUNT MADORIYAMA GASTONIA — Two men meet at the base of the towering mountain ready for an epic throwback Thursday adventure down the infamous Route 66.

As Freight planted the flag, there was humorous banter about a mythical F3 unicorn named Greg Louganis Merkin and how they wanted to see a video of Jolly Roger performing this stunt.

The journey back in time started with a short warm-up to get the oils flowing for an adventure down Main Street of America. Twenty arm circles forward, twenty backwards, followed by twenty side straddle hops. IC of course.

With their heart rates up the first leg of Route 66 got underway with a legend from the 1990’s, Bobby Hurley. With spirits high the men mixed 40-yard sprints in between sixty-six jump shots.

Bobby had other arrangements and for the next leg, and we picked up a hitchhiker named Mr. Merkin to take his place. The Q decided to swap out sprints for 40-yard side steps.

With the second leg complete the crew got a little hungry and took a detour to 1948 for the grand opening of in and out burger. To work up the appetite, they ran backwards down Route 66 for 40 yards and did sixty-six in and outs on their six.

Candy is what they wanted for dessert, and luckily the Starburst plant wasn’t far away. This leg consisted of 40-yard sprints and StarJacks.

For the final leg of Route 66, they went to a galaxy far away. A place where the Imperial Walker’s roam free.

After finishing this epic journey they still had time left and threw in some country music with “Yeah”, 40-yards of lung walks, 20 merkins to Peter Parker to Parker Peter. Finally, 5 Star Burpees to finish it off.

Only two of us, so it was short and to the point. One advantage is with a small group we got to cover all the F’s. “As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend.” – Proverbs 27:17
