YHC was sitting in front of his computer (shocker, right?) pondering the contents of the weinke for this morning’s Labryinth.  While trolling through Twitter, happened upon the fact that 09-Feb-2021 was supposedly National Pizza Day (which has been verified, BTW).  YHC what better way to pay tribute than to create little pizzas (aka circles) and instead of  toppings like pepperoni or sausage or onions, we put the toppings like LBCs, Burpees, Merkins, etc. So…

8 HIMs were gathered when 0530 hit.  Among the group of regulars was the used to be regular, Gastone.  Glad to see him out.  Supposedly Gastone is now pregnant with twins…not sure how this all happened, but that is YHC heard….

No FNGs, so lets get started.


21 MNCs IC
2 Burpees
10 Merkins IC
Tesla style hip stretches.
Mosey to the top of the parking lot in Martha’s.

Main Event:

It was at this time, YHC informed everyone yesterday was  National Pizza Day and in tribute we were going to run circles and do exercises.  You should have  heard the enthusiasm (for pizza, not my suggestions).

Perform 10 of the exercise, Run the defined circle.
Perform 9 of the exercise, Run the defined circle.
Perform 1 of the exercise Run the defined circle.

Exercise #1: LBCs
Exercise #2: Squats
Exercise #3: Merkins
Exercise #4: SSHs

Each time a set was complete, we moved deeper into parking lot.  It looks like lots of little pizzas stacked on each other (In Strava) (Assuming your pizzas are ovals).

Someone at some point said something about the Pub being on Thursdays, but YHC was too out of breath to hear them.

Time was getting short and we were at the end of the parking lot, the last set was shortened to start with 5 and work down to 1 with the absolute crowd favorite of Burpees.

Once those were done, we worked our way back to the flag with everyone getting somewhere around a 5K in for the morning.

We caught the Pledge of Allegiance to finish out the time.


  • Everyone like Bellacino’s pizza.
  • Blaze has good pizza.
  • There is a great deal of nostalgia around the cardboard-esc pizza from days long ago in school.


  • Extinction Run
  • The Strides of March CSAUP

Prayer Requests were mentioned.

YHC took us out.

Thanks for the opportunity to lead.  If you missed today’s (or Monday’s), you can come get powered up on Friday at Downtown (EC @ 0500).
