Well it’s a cold one out here at Old School this morning and there’s already a crowd. Great to see lots of support for RoundUp and the 24hr. / 50mi. Crew. Quite a few are here just for the run but after a quick 2mi. EC run I quickly saw that a good amount of PAX were here to workout as well.
I don’t see any FNGs so after a quick disclaimer and my standard warmup we are at it. It was a simple but very effective rack and stack style workout with lots of Burpees, Hand Release Mike Tyson’s, Jungle Boi Squats and plenty of Core Werk to go with it. Mix that up with a lot of confusion, lack of communication, Bear Crawling and running between rounds and things quickly got disastrous. Sorry about the not so clear instructions men but after a couple of rounds we were all on track. At 0730 we all got in a lap with the 24hr. Crew and got back to work by this time all were working on unstacking and by the time 0800 rolled around some were working on a second round of racking and stacking and most were finishing their final round of unstacking.

I’d personally like to thank everyone for all the prayers for my family during the chaos this last month or so. It has meant the world to us.

After finishing up what I could of the 50 miler, I showed up early to see everyone had hit thier goal and rode off. To my dismay and chagrin, BOS and Maybelline decided to leave to go to the Coconut Horse even though they were a quarter, one-fourth, .25 miles away from Crossroads. You hate to see it, but it could’ve been who had the Q.
Runners, ruckers alike take off at various times and various speeds for various distances.
We circle backup where YHC had put in some work to make sure we all said the pledge super slow to prank Dr. Seuss and get under his skin. Bonus is that it got Freight as well. Good job guys.
