Our dear friend Snowden may be gone but he is far from forgotten, leaving a legacy of groan-inducing wordplay jokes (and some other things – strong running…good hair…but mostly the jokes) that lives on. We honored him by combining his love of bad jokes and good running at Bedrock. We also did other stuff. Beastly stuff.
Conditions: Clear, cold. 30ish degrees.

Line up for the Snowden Joke Indian Run, to the far end of the parking lot and back. The instructions were: the man at the front sets the pace as fast or slow as he likes, and the PAX were to call out their best Snowden Jokes. A great example:
Have you heard about the new corduroy pillowcases?
They’re really making headlines.
Gold, I tell ya. GOLD.
After the Indian Run (0.8 miles) I stole an idea from X-Ray and did a curb-to-curb. Bear crawl to one curb, one burpee, lunge walk back, one merkin. Repeato until you’ve completed 5 burpees and merkins.
We finished with a Dora of 100 squats, 200 merkins, 300 LBCs. Scoop of chocolate, scoop of vanilla – don’t waste my time (name that movie). But there was a surprise lurking at the far end of the run: The Beast. The hellacious block thingy of my own creation. Each PAX stopped on each run for 5 overhead presses with The Beast. These were exceptionally fun during the merkin portion of the Dora.
Close with Mary.
