The Thang

Once we reached the big-steps, the fun began.


  • On big steps, 3 incline merkins, then shuffle in plank position, then move up, reversing direction each time
  • At top, reverse for decline merkins
  • Come back up to the top doing same with dips

Mt. Moriama suicide sprints

Everybody loves suicide sprints, so why not do them uphill as well? A walking rest was provided.


On a long climb up, sometimes a down climb is required before you can go up again.


Hopeful for a speedy recovery to Roadhouse. Man of the day is Money Ball, on whom the Golden Glove was bestowed.
