You couldn’t have asked for better weather in February than what we had at the premier afternoon JV AO yesterday. There were a total of 14 PAX present, including an appearance by the infamous Ash Pond. Good to see you back out brother! After a disclaimer and warmup we got to work.


Modified VERN

This routine is supposed to include pull ups, but due to the amount of children on the playground and some certain PAX who are banned from close proximity to those underage, we had to modify. It went like this:

10 Hip Slappers IC

Run a lap around the lot (a little over 200 yds.)

20 Dips

Run a lap

25 Merkins

Run a lap

30 LBC’s

Run a lap

Repeat x5

This is a great you vs. you routine and the PAX were really pushing it.


The goal was to get in at least a 5k and at this point we were a little under 2.5 miles, so let’s mosey. We stopped along the way for some Big Boys, Squats, Pretzel Crunches, Mtn. Climbers, American Hammers and Jump Squats and ended up back at the flag with the goal reached.



The Principle of Little and Much

Luke 16:10 – “Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.”

This teaching applies to all areas of our lives. God tests us with the little things that he gives us and the more faithful we are in doing them, the more blessings we will receive. Don’t get distracted from the importance of doing God’s will and never assume that anything from God is unimportant or trivial.



Extinction Run – this Saturday at 9am from Primal Brewery in Belmont. See preblast for details and sign up.

Strides of March – relay run on March 6th and 6:30am. See preblast for details and sign up.

YHC took us out.


The weather was awesome and so was the fellowship.  Ash Pond was back out after some time on the IR, Cougar and Pinky are making it out here more often and even SA made a rare afternoon appearance. We joke about Midoriyama being JV, but these guys get after it and if you’ve never been you should give it a try.
