4 strong posted on a most glorious morning to the “oldest” AO in the region. This is what happened…

The PAX were experienced so no disclaimer. Pledge of Allegiance. Warmup including Don Quixotes, plank jacks and Nolan Ryan’s, all in cadence. Mosey.

We headed toward the designated downtown workout area at the old courthouse. On the way we did a variety of Deep Sea Divers at the rec building and then Monkey Humpers on the corner of the town square. YHC gave a pump fake and headed us from the square toward the Ingles, stopping for some goofballs and later gravel pickers for the passersby.

We kept moseying until we ended up at Carr Elementary where the Thang would be done.

The Carr – due to the excitement of football season being upon us, we had some cool numbers to use too.

Derek Carr – current quarterback of the Las Vegas Raiders. He’s been sacked 237 times in his career. Therefore, we naturally do something using that number. Partner up and do CDDs, LBCs and Side Straddle Hops. Partner one ran around the circle while partner 2 did the work. Lot’s of cardio here!

Fellowship mosey for a bit to catch our breath before the next Thang.

David Carr – older brother of Derek and past quarterback of the Texans, Panthers and others. He really got destroyed in his career. 267 sacks all time before he retired. Ouch! Switch partners and this time, do Alternating Shoulder Taps, Dying Cockroaches and Goofballs. Even more cardio!

Because we were at Carr Elementary got us to talking about other cars. The great 80’s band The Cars came to mind and we had some riveting discussion about their music and what were their best songs. YHC believes it’s Let the Good Times Roll but others said it is Drive. The debate continues…

Mosey toward the start with some karaoke on the way.

The last Thang.

The other Carr we would learn about is the great ML Carr. He’s frome Wallace, NC, played ball at Guilford College and then the NBA for 13 seasons with the Celtics, winning 2 titles in the process.

13s – instead of 11s. Do Bobby Hurley’s at one end and Squats on the other. All while the Cars played on the ‘ole iPhone. Good times.

Time was up and we wrapped up pretty quickly. Thanks for the opportunity to lead men!
