Fitness, Fellowship, Faith

Day: May 1, 2023


Big crowd this am at the Sandlot. Cooler than expected. Now that I am almost in my mid-50’s, my bones are a bit more sensitive the cooler weather. Guess I’ll have to start wearing some joggers, maybe a sweater, and a headband whenever it’s under 80 degrees….

0530 hit so we started with the pledge, disclaimer, and quick warmup. Mosey across the street for some step ups and derkins, mosey to Gastone’s hill with some Merkins at each light on the way. Up Gastone’s hill with 10 mountain climbers at each mailbox on the right then quick discussion about Flintstone’s Slack message about the Charlotte marathon-dang, why do I feel like posts like that are talking directly to me???? I hate running, well at least I hate running when I am not in running shape. I like being in shape from running frequently. And I don’t really mind running when I am in shape….but I don’t really enjoy….scratch that, I really hate getting into running shape. So I may have responded to Flintstone with a commitment to “consider the marathon. I’ll see how the running more frequently goes.” and “I’ll give it a shot” as far as the training goes. I know it will be good for me, but a marathon???? Hey Flintstone, if you are reading this, you can pound sand.

We went back down the hill then had time for another trip with a couple Merkins at each mailbox. Mosey to bottom then back towards start. Was looking for a wall but due to construction at the defunct bank, all we could find was the wall at Pelican’s. Not really interested in painting a wall so we skipped the slappers and did some wall sits alternating with dirty hookups a few times then finished with Mike Tysons. Had a few minutes left so quick round of Mary then called it a day.

We finished with COT.

PS-Hey Flintstone, you can still pound sand.
