Thanks for Dry Rub, Hermie and Stroganoff for joining the EC.  Shoutout to Roscoe for logging miles at Grier.

Today’s beatdown was inspired by a recent Italian Job posting.  Thanks to Stroganoff for a quick tour of the ole neighborhood to find the street layout needed.

0700 arrives with 8 gathered around YHC at GasHouse,   No FNGs, so no disclaimer was mentioned.

We knock out The Pledge of Allegiance before moving to WarmUp.



10 Bent Over Arm Circles (each arm).
15 Merkins IC

PainLab off with Tube, GasHouse, lets roll…


GasHouse’s warmup continues with a mosey toward the intersection Laurel Ln and Nottingham Dr.  Along the way, we stopped at each street intersection (Carlton, Peachtree, Laurel and 8th) and performed12 each of an exercise (LBCs, Squats, Merkins, and ??)

Lets do some work:

The route was Laurel to Dumbarton to  Dorset to Nottingham, back to Laurel.  At each intersection perform 10 each of the following:

Calf Raises

Total 60 of each

Now that we are back where we started, lets do it backwards with the following exercises:

Freddie Mercury (unless your the Q, who did Dying Cockroaches for half the round)

Total 60 of each

So, time was getting short, YHC asked the former residents about the approximate lengths back.  Somehow, the Mortimer and HTFU was mentioned.  So Nottingham it is to Churchill

A quick stop @ Carmen for 10 more:
Freddie Mercury

And back towards the flag.  A stop at the entrance for a little wall sitting, 10 incline merkins and 10 derkins.

Arriving at the flag, a little Mary was done, a lap around the parking lot to get the full 5K in and then some more Mary until the bells peal.



  • Convergence 9-Jan @ Folsom

Prayer Requests:

  • Double Stuf
  • EZ Rider
  • M’s recovering from surgeries
  • Officer Herndon’s family


JJ prayed us out.


Although, this was all my idea, thanks to those in attendance today for the push.  To improve, run with those faster/better than yourself.  I certainly did today.  It was an honor to lead today.




Watts Up Powering Down.
