Homecoming Mashup at the Crypt

As I planted the shovel flag in the gloomy mist of the Crypt this morning I had a moment of zen. This feels like home! My zen moment was soon interrupted by squealing tires as Thumbs Up sped down the exit lane on two wheels and pulled up blasting Sweet Home Alabama. Inspiration! It’s homecoming season and I have been Q’ing at a couple of the new AOs so why not bring back some of the more popular exercises (based solely on the volume of groans) to the Crypt for a homecoming mashup of sorts.

I wrote a story about it….Here it goes

Weather: Partly gloomy with a 100% chance of misty goodness falling from the sky.

Nascar Racing

Split into teams of 4 Pax

One person is the car

One is the crew chief

Rest are crew

Car sprints around one parking lot island and back to pit box

Crew chief calls exercise to AMRAP while car is sprinting

Car planks upon arrival to crew

Crew does 20 Merkins each while making pit stop sound effects

When complete rotate roles and repeat until everyone has been the car

I may have been the only one making sound effects but a good time was had by all.

BOM – Led by Thumbs Up

Naked Moleskin:

  • Great work by the Pax today. I could sincerely feel the love behind the shouts of  “Go back home Mac”. Leading the Q is a lot like being a shock jock radio DJ…the more they hate you the better job you are doing.
  • T-claps to Thumbs Up for leading the BOM today.
  • T-claps to Take-a-number for his mountain-top Cottonmouth picture. I had to use it even though he fartsacked on me this morning. #alarmclockproblems


  • Mud Run training opportunities across F3SouthCarolina, see website for details
  • Palmetto 200 pre-blast is up. Let Mungo know if you are interested.
  • Patty Packs 5K and HM is Dec. 6th.
  • Keep Granola’s coworker’s mom in your prayers as they deal with medical issues.
  • The Q list at Crypt is looking pretty thin. If you have been posting for a couple of months and haven’t led a Q it’s an opportunity to break out of your comfort zone and discover that leader in you. I will co-Q with anyone interested if you don’t want to fly solo for your VQ.
