Bearway to Heaven

10 Pax take the red pill and a new Crowd Pleaser in the early gloom of The Hollow. The best way to sum it up is of course with a song.


Bearway to Heaven

All the Pax were sure their shoulders were sore

And they’re crawling  a bearway to heaven

(And) when they get there they know to turn around and go

With a word they will get what they came for

Ooh ooh ooh…ooh…ooh ooh ooh

And they’re crawling  a bearway to heaven


There’s a lunge and a merlot but they want to be sure

‘Cause you know sometimes you have to modify

Past the tree by the walk in my ears there’s a ring

Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven


Oooh…It makes me better

Oooh…It makes me better


There’s a feeling I get when I start to sweat

And my spirit is crying for heaving

In my thoughts I have seen rings of fire and burpees

And the voices of those who stand looking


Oooh…It makes me better

Oooh…And it makes me better


And it’s whispered that soon, if we all call him a loon

Then Mac will learn to reason

But he seems to be drawn to doing things too long

And The Hollow will echo with laughter


Woe woe woe woe woe oh

If there’s a thistle in your backbone

Don’t be alarmed now

It’s better than a sprinkler during COP


Yes there are two pills you can go by

but the red one

Will always change the road you’re on


And it makes me better…ohhh ooh woe


Your arms are aching and they won’t go – in case you don´t know

The Q calling you to join him

Dear lord did you hear me merlot and did you know

The bearway shaves your gloves thin


And as we wind up on the road

Our sweat shadows taller than our souls

There walks a lady we all know

Her name is Mary and she wants to show

How to turn your abs to gold


And if you think that was hard

The work will show to you at last

We are brothers one and all, yeah

We keep each other accountable



And they’re crawling a bearway to heaven

  • Awesome new AO. Lots of possibilities. It was nice meeting some of the new Pax there. Look forward to returning soon. (With less bear crawls next time!) (and by less I mean one less leg!)
  • T-claps to the Pax for pushing themselves in what seemed to be an impossible task.
  • Note to self: Find a shorter field with poles that are closer together for the Bearway to heaven next time. That was a lot of bear crawling (half mile by my Garmin!)
