DISRUPTION! It’s a thing. Work has been intense lately. The result? YHC had forgotten he was signed up to Q until he looked at the Q List at 0630 this morning. The kicker? YHC currently has no voice, so that meant 30 minutes to figure out a Q where talking wasn’t much of a thing. Then YHC got to the AO and his watch promptly died. No worries, right? YHC could just track the time on his phone… or so he thought until the rain started. Life throws curveballs. Be prepared for the things you can, and be ready for things to go off-script occasionally.


Top Gun & Sugar Cookies!

Time to play in the sand! It’s coarse, and rough, and irritating. And it gets everywhere… oh hi, Skywalker!

  • DATE: 08/14/2021
  • TIMEX: 0700-0800
  • AO: Dehavilland
  • WEATHER: 69°F and Nice
  • Q: Crockett
  • PAX: Skywalker, Jiffy, Ditka, Fence Post, Wilson, Flip-flop, Swobbles


  • Plank up for a minute of Q Source w/Wilson
  • Tater Pickers IC x10
  • Windmills IC x10
  • SSH IC x10
  • Mosey to the volleyball courts (two volunteers carry 60# sandbags)

The Thang

PAX line up along the court (in the sand). Pax take turns farmer carrying both sandbags across two courts and back. PAX AMRAP the exercise anytime they’re not carrying the bags.

  • ROUND 1: Merkins
  • ROUND 2: LBCs
  • ROUND 3: Hummingbirds
  • ROUND 4: Squats
  • ROUND 5: Flutterkicks
  • ROUND 6: Calf Raises
  • Mosey back to Flag (two new volunteers to carry the sandbags back)
  • Crockett Special: BatWings IC x20


Ditka needs butt support when he does Squats. Some Pax get jealous if you hold the heavy things longer than them. The goose residue is in full effect at Delco Park. T-Claps to Flip-flop! He represented 2.0s in a big way today. He’s not in the picture because he was splashing Welch’s (not old enough for merlot yet), but he definitely held his own and made it to the finish line. He exemplified the no-quit HIM attitude this morning and we couldn’t be prouder.


The 2.0s Are Invading!

It’s a beautiful morning! The sun is shining, the breeze is blowing and… wait. Who are all these little people?!

DATE: 7/24/2021
TIME: 0700-0800
WEATHER: 70° and sunny
Q: Crockett
PAX: Swobbles, Spicoli, Flipper, Calvin, Shortstop, Wilson, Sink-o, Who’s There?, Jingles, Swine Climber, Meatball, Quattro, Johnny5, Doodle, Fence Post, Beamer


Quick and to the point. We have stuff to do.

  • SSH IC x20
  • Windmills IC x20

The Thang

4-Corners around a soccer field.

  • Corner 1: 10 Burpees
  • Mosey across goal line
  • Corner 2: 20 Merkins
  • Mosey w/Seal Claps length of field
  • Corner 3: 30 Squats
  • Mosey across goal line
  • Corner 4: 40 LBCs
  • Mosey w/Overhead Claps length of field
  • Wash, rinse, repeat

At 7:30 pick up the six, grab water, and head to midfield. Let’s hold an AL Gore and talk about pain.

Kenji Miyazawa said “We must embrace pain and burn it as fuel for our journey.” Are you letting the pain in your life crush you or are you embracing it and burning it as fuel to help you Accelerate?

Enough talking. Round 2 of 4-Corners. Keep going until 7:50.

  • At 7:50, pick up the six and Mosey back to the flag.
  • Burpees OYO x5 (per Meatball’s request for a suggestion)
  • Celebrate Beamer’s birthday with 7 burpees IC (On Beamer’s count)
  • Crockett Special: end it with Bat Wings IC x20


Crockett counts to 4 differently. New Jersey is the red haired stepchild of the east coast. Running 2.0s can become clotheslined 2.0s if Overhead Claps are involved. Beatdowns are way better than hiking with copperheads. Happy birthday to Beamer! Welcome to Quattro, Sink-o, and Doodle from F3 First State and FNG John AKA Shortstop! Also… DOUBLE BINGO!


Suicide 6 In The Sun!

It was an amazing morning with an amazing group of HIMs. The lesson today was that picking up the six, both in beatdowns and in life, should be an active thing rather than passive.
