Sister Act’s Second Act

It’s a “Glorious First of June”. YHC pinch hitting for Pockets.

On this date in history:

  1. HMS Shannon captured the USS Chesapeake.  Prior to surrender, Captain Lawrence implored his crew to “Not give up the ship!”. Believe it or not, Slaw was not a crewmember on the wooden sailing warship.

  2. The French army is in a full retreat from the advancing German army. Some US Marines take up positions in a forest called Belleau Woods. A French officer tells the newly arrived Marines to retreat to Paris with the French troops. An unknown Marine officer answers him, “Retreat? Hell, we just got here.” The Marines (and the US Army) stopped the German attack, eventually counterattacking and driving back the Germans. Five months later the war was over. FYI, Oompa Loompa wasn’t involved in this battle either.

What did this have to do with the workout?

Not a dang thing.

Circle up. Warm up with Moroccan Night Clubs.

11 World War Ones. 11 Hand Release Merkins. Run a lap around horseshoe pits.

Rinse and Repeat until time is called.

Some people used a short cut. Every lap. You vs You. Freight got as many laps as he has birthdays. Gomer had to Gomer. Slaw had an epic event in the potty. Short Sale visited afterwards and returned soaking wet. You had to be there.

Wallsit for 60 seconds until all are finished.

Mosey to flag. 22 for vets.

Prayer requests for Pappy, Turtleman, Uranus, others on IR.

Service project, nail clippers and chapstick.

Blood drive. F3 Dads. DQ with Turtleman.

YHC closed out with prayer.
