I’d say it was a large crowd on a muggy morning, but it’s been a while since I’ve posted at The Goat, so maybe 13 PAX is a typical or even light turnout. Anyway, it was good to see several new faces and a FNG. After the standard disclaimer and a review of the 5 Core Principles, we began with a warmup of side-straddle hops, hillbilly walkers, and toy soldiers (10xIC each). I then introduced special guests Frank and Hank, identical twins weighing in at 18 lbs each. They were excited to join our workout but didn’t say much and had to be carried everywhere we went.  With that, we set off toward the fire station and up the hill on the main road.  Bubba Sparxxx apparently didn’t like what he saw and moseyed away in the other direction.  Perhaps he made a good call…  Without remembering how many telephone poles there are between the fire station and the stoplight (and fortunately skipping the first one), I called for escalating burpees.  Turns out there are 12 poles (note to self: remember this for future reference), so we essentially did a “Route 66” of burpees.  When the six got to the streetlight, we got a count-off, then moseyed around the Baptist building where there’s just enough wall in a single section (no spreading out) for all 12 of us to have a seat in tight formation.  Remember Frank and Hank?  We passed them down the line and back just so they didn’t get lonely.  Recovered straight into 10 hip slappers OYO.  Then back to our seats.  This time, Hank got one shoulder press from each PAX down the line and back.  Recover; 10 hip slappers.  Back to our seats.  This time, Frank got 2 shoulder presses from each PAX down the line and back.  Counted off again – nobody AWOL, including FNG!  Circled up for “domino merkin pull-throughs.”  Ask somebody who was there…  Next was 11s across the length of the parking lot with big boy situps and reverse crunches.  That took us to 0610.  Mosey back to the flag for 1 minute of Mary just before Orangeman could call out his characteristic 6-shooters.  Despite being left out of the 11s and Mary routines, Frank and Hank made it safely back to COT.

Today is last day to order gear.  Check Slack and put in your order.
