The Thang

The expression the hair of the dog, for an alcoholic drink (or in this case Merkins) taken to cure a hangover, is a shortening of ‘a hair of the dog that bit you’. It comes from an old belief that someone bitten by a rabid dog could be cured of rabies by taking a potion containing some of the dog’s hair. The correlation suggests that, although alcohol may be to blame for the hangover (as the dog is for the attack), a smaller portion of the same will, paradoxically, act as a cure. There is, it should be added, no scientific evidence that the cure for either a hangover or rabies actually works.

Six stations set up around loop that goes around the big dog park and the skate park. Mode of transportation between the stations was running, on the east end was bernie and the west end was karaoke! I cut the number by 5 on the third and fourth loops.
Station 1- 25 merkins (first loop)
15 Diamond Merkins (second loop)
Station 2- 15 Aquamans (first loop)
15 Divebombers (second loop)
Station 3- 25 SSH IC (first loop)
50 Imperial Walkers (second loop)
Station 4- 12 Burpees (first loop)
Up-Downs (second loop)
Station 5- 25 squats (first loop)
20 lunges (second loop)
Station 6- 15 Carolina Drydocks
30 100’s IC
We went three and a half loops then moseyed to the pavilion for a little change of pace. Under the pavilion we did:
15 Dips IC
20 Step ups OYO
Grabbed a rock and did:
15 curls IC
15 overhead presses OYO
We moseyed back out to the parking lot for some Bataan Death March we went two loops around the same circle where the stations were set-up. Made sure everyone got to do burpees twice. We then finished our fourth loop around the stations and went back to the pavilion for some more Mary.
15 Big boy sit-ups
10 dying cock roach
10 Oblique crunches each side
Moseyed back to flags for COT


It is better to forgive and forget. Call up that persons that you may have had a disagreement with and work it out. Touch base with that family member you haven’t talked to in a while and work things out. Life is to short to waste it on petty crap!
[The “COT” aka the “CIRCLE OF TRUST” is the terminating stage of each Workout, wherein the PAX form a circle and conduct Counterama, Namerama, Announcearama and the Ball Of Man.
BALL OF MAN: Congregation of two or more men in physical contact, usually (but not exclusively) in the prayer that terminates the COT. Abbr: BOM]
