Humid.  Who decided to start this at 0700?

We gathered in the lot by the playground to discuss the plan.  Pax were encouraged to complete the workout as they saw fit.  The mile loop was explained (run to Erwin Marine front doors and back essentially).  Pax chose to either run the full mile with reps in between or broke up the running with reps in between.  Tough either way.

The Murph (modified/no weighted vest)

  • 1-mile run
  • 100 big boy sit-ups (modified from pull-ups)
  • 200 merkins
  • 300 air squats
  • 1-mile run


We made sure to remember what Memorial Day is all about.  We’re all thankful for our freedoms and the men and women who sacrificed their lives so we can enjoy it.


Props to Threeskin who finished first.  Turns out breaking up the run gives you an edge. 

Carebear is a smart man.  He presented Prosciutto with a finder’s fee for a lead resulting in some biz.  FIVE HUNDRED BUCKS!  

Threeskin gave us a sneak preview of the new Hacksaw flag.  Legit!

Odd Job wore a shirt with a bunch of Michael Scott faces all over it.  Also legit.

FNG Clouseau works for UPS in their investigations division.  Props to Fastlane for getting him out there.

Moneyball has bone spurs and is either stubborn as hell or a beast.

The Count took some beautiful pics on his fancy camera and Prosciutto tweeted it out to the masses with special hashtags because he’s a good listener.  Or not.
